2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah Top Pick!
2009 Baker Lane "Estate" Sonoma Syrah

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Youthfully wound-up aromas of blackberry, mulberry and violet, plus a strong note of licorice. Deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are given an exotic character by notes of violet pastille and star anise. Supple and expansive on the firm, gripping, intensely spicy finish. This textbook syrah should age well. (ST)" (5/2011) Antonio Galloni: "The 2009 Syrah Estate Vineyard shows the wilder side of the grape in its red cherries, black pepper, spices and herbs. Medium in body, it possesses good balance and energy through to the finish. (AG)" (8/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Syrah E ...Read More »

2009 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

98 points James Suckling: "Stunning nose of lavender and flowers. Currants and raspberries. Subtle and intriguing. Full and dense but wonderfully balanced with firm and silky tannins and a persistent finish. Dusty texture. A wine so balanced that you want to drink it already. Better in 2017." (10/2012)97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Dominus saw about 40% new oak compared to the 20% for Napanook. A seamless classic, it offers a symphony of red and black currants, Asian plum sauce, lavender, and underbrush. Sweet Christmas fruitcake characteristics emerge from this magnificent Dominus that finished at 14.5 ...Read More »

2009 Heitz Cellar "Trailside Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The intensely flavorful wines from Rutherford's Trailside Vineyard have been part of the Heitz range since 1989. The vineyard is flanked by the Silverado Trail on one side and Conn Creek on the other and is certified organic. Aged in oak for three and half years, the winery descibes the 2009 vintage thusly: "Opulent hues of ruby and garnet draw you headlong into the glass; rich aromas of blackberry and a hint of nutmeg invite you to stay. With just the right amount of French oak there is a subtle sweetness that lifts and enhances the dark fruit character... Read More »

2009 Foggy Bridge San Francisco Bay Zinfandel (Elsewhere $32)

Wine Enthusiast: "Daryl Groom is making these wines from Livermore Valley vineyards mostly and the wine is no doubt big in every way-15.6% alcohol with big tannins and big black, spicy fruit flavors hiding in there at first. It definitely needs time to open. And a giant, slathered-in-sauce kind of steak or other red meat." (11/2011)

2009 Woodenhead "Guido Venturi Vineyard" Mendocino County Zinfandel (Elsewhere $38)

Wine Enthusiast: "Woodenhead does Pinot Noir well, too, but here it shows its skill with Zinfandel, producing a structured, peppery and leathery version bright in briary blackberry and plum. With fierce minerality at its core, this is a distinctive Zin for those who prefer their wines savory and earthy." (8/2013) K&L Notes: Mendocino County is possibly the most overlooked source for Zinfandel in California, with long-established vineyards which deliver substantial and structured expressions. The Venturi family has owned this vineyard site since 1924 which sits just west of the Redwood... Read More »

2009 Paloma Napa Valley Merlot

A small production Merlot, supplemented by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, all grown at Paloma's vineyards on Spring Mountain. A Wine Spectator "Wine of the Year" in 2003, the Paloma has something of a cult following, so if you want to try this plush, fruit-filled Merlot, don't delay. The 2009 shows currant, blackberry, plum and cherry fruit balanced by espresso, bittersweet cocoa powder, savory herb and tobacco notes. The slightly cooler vintage and mountain terroir give the vintage a firmer backbone to balance out the ripe, rich fruit, and the wine finish with... Read More »

2009 Joseph Swan "Mancini Ranch" Russian River Valley Zinfandel

Fleshy and supple in texture, offering concentrated cherry compote and floral pastille flavors plus a suggestion of fruitcake. Takes a darker turn on the sweet, expansive finish, which features dusty tannins and lingering smokiness. I like the blend of power and energy here." (5/2014)

2009 Kathryn Kennedy "Estate" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

(11/2013) K&L Notes: This is the flagship wine from the Kathryn Kennedy seven acre estate vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains, where the combination of soil type, aspect, and modern organic viticultural techniques results in a profound and ageworthy expression of terroir-driven, Bordeaux-styled California Cabernet vintage after vintage. The vineyard was planted in 1973.

Fresh, incisive and floral on the palate, offering blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that coat the palate and pick up a subtle, refreshingly bitter orange marmalade quality.

Full body with spice, black pepper, blueberry, mushroom and walnut. Seaweed. Goes on for minutes." (5/2014) Jancis Robinson: "Cabernet Sauvignon is 74% of the blend.

2009 Littorai "Cerise" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Pinot Noir Cerise shows the earthier side of Pinot. Autumn leaves, crushed flowers, raspberries, licorice, game and smoke meld together in this singular, highly expressive Pinot. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame the long finish. The Cerise needs at least another 2-3 years in bottle for some of the firmness to soften, but it will likely always be a touch wild and rustic. The Cerise was vinified with 25% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. (AG)" (2/2012)92 points Wine Spectator: "Trim, focused aromas of blackberry, wild berry and raspberry follow through t ...Read More »

2009 Silverado Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Connoisseurs Guide: "*One star* Clean and composed at every stop and showing fine fruity precision, this nicely made Cabernet avoids bombast and swagger and instead aims successfully for structure and balance. There is no question but that it toughens up and gets a touch gritty at the finish, but its essential fruit will easily outlast its rather too-obvious tannins, and we are looking for anywhere from five to ten-plus years of very positive growth."

It immediately impresses with richness, smoothness of texture and complexity, offering waves of ripe summer blackberry, blueberry and smoke.

2009 Madrigal Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $38)

Connoisseurs Guide: "Varietal in focus if a little dry/stiff, this wine gets its points for its hints of openness under its firm construction. Its spice and herb glimmers also give it a bit of range, but what starts out well on the palate ultimately winds up less accessible by the finish. It has tannins for a decade but fruit for half that time, and we would counsel the latter course." (4/2014)

2009 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid yellow. Musky aromas of chamomile, pear skin, anise and iodine, with suave floral and gingerbread notes emerging with aeration. Juicy and broad on entry, then a bit tighter in the middle, offering densely packed orchard fruit flavors and notes of smoke and honeysuckle. More powerful than the Horseshoe but no less animated. This complex and tactile chardonnay boasts an intriguing interplay of ripe fruit and energetic spices. Finishes on a gently smoky note, with excellent persistence." (6/2011)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Alpine Vineyard is the most vibr ...Read More »

2009 Pride Mountain "Vintner's Select" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another juicy, expressive wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner's Select shows considerably more textural roundness and depth than the straight Cabernet bottling. Plush, round and deep, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with layers of fruit. Hints of smoke, menthol, tar and graphite add gravitas on the dark, brooding finish.

It’s intense in mountain-concentrated blackberries, bla ...Read More »

2009 Pride Mountain "Reserve" Sonoma/Napa Counties Claret

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Merlot-based 2009 Claret Reserve is gorgeous. Juicy dark cherries, tobacco, smoke and cloves jump out of the glass. The Merlot gives the wine much of its suppleness, while the Cabernet adds the structure and pure mountain tannin. Even with all of its richness, the 2009 remains light on its feet for such a big wine. The 2009 boasts striking balance and tons of harmony. The blend is two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Sauvignon. Naturally, the Claret doesn't have the personality of the estate's variety wines, but it is compelling just the same. 94 ...Read More »
