2008 Egelhoff Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $70)

From the winery: "Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, and gunsmoke. This wine has medium tannins with flavors of dark fruits, cocoa powder and black currants and exotic spices that mingle together on the palate. A concentrated, yet elegant wine that can be enjoyed immediately with a variety of pastas and grilled or smoked meats."

2008 Far Niente "Dolce" Napa Valley Dessert Wine (375ml)

A combination of late harvest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from the foggy town of Coombsville, east of Napa, Dolce is Napa's ultimate Sauternes-style dessert wine, with its earthy, botrytis underpinning and joyful acidity. Wonderfully food-friendly, this will pair well with foie gras, poached figs, cheeses, chocolate or creme brulee. Or cellar and watch the wine evolve. Praise from Wine Review Online: "A rare example of a domestically-produced Sauternes style wine. At once delicate and decadent, this beautifully balanced dessert wine will make a great f...

2008 Palmina Santa Barbara County Nebbiolo

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light red. Red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by rose, white pepper and vanilla. Spicy and brisk on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the middle, offering intense red fruit flavors and a touch of spicecake. Shows a refreshingly light touch, with zero excess fat. Finishes peppery and brisk, with lingering floral notes and no obvious tannins. There's an elegant, pinot-like character to this wine that's quite intriguing." (12/2012)

2008 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hugely delicious, just a joy to drink. So soft and velvety, so rich in blackberry jam, cassis and chocolate flavors, with the tannins so smooth and round. Really wonderful over the next few years, although the softness and high alcohol suggest it’s not an ager." (9/2011)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine graced with expressive red fruit, flowers, licorice and tobacco. This mid-weight, understated wine impresses for its focus, length and fine overall balance. Floral notes round out the fleshy, generous finish."

2008 Qupe "X Block—Bien Nacido Vineyard—The Good Nacido—30th Anniversary" Santa Maria Valley Syrah (Previously $90)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* This bottling is the winery’s most expensive wine, and usually its best. Production of the ’08 was unusually low, resulting in amazing concentration. It’s basically a detonation of cherries, raspberries, currants, cola and mocha. New oak is present, in the form of delicate toast and wood spice, but is balanced. So silky and delicious now, you can drink it, but the tannic balance suggests the cellar. Will evolve over the next 12 years, maybe longer."

2008 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Gregariously fruity with highlights of raspberries and cranberries intermixed with its main themes of fresh, juicy cherries, this one may arguably be criticized for being just a touch on the simple, side but no one will find it lacking in depth. It is so young that it cannot only get better with time in bottle, but we admit that its no-holds-barred richness and accessible style makes near-term resistance next to impossible."

2008 Philip Togni Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Dramatically better, the dark ruby/plum/garnet-hued 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a subtly herbaceous nose with hints of sweet raspberries and black currants in the background. More backward than other great vintages such as 2007, 2005, 2004, 2002 and 2001, this medium to full-bodied, substantial 2008 needs 3-4 years of cellaring and should age for 15-20+ years. Although it is not one of his greatest classics, it is still a very fine effort, and will be very long-lived. (93+.

This plush, up-front style of Chardonnay from Brewer and Clifton often reminds me of a California version of a Batard-Montrachet. The wine is light gold in color, with notes of honeyed nuts intermixed with crushed rock, lemon butter, orange rind, and pear.

Then it goes to minerals with just a hint of bay leaf. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins with a beautiful softness and beautifulness. I love the balance and harmony to this with bright acidity. I would drink this before the 2007. Just under 1,000 cases of 12 but all sold in threes. Reminds me of Leoville Las Cases but with Napa brightness. Enjoy or hold for a long time."

However it sounds, it’s really delicious." (8/2011)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "As this deeply drawn wine demonstrates so well, Pride Merlots are as unruly as they are rich when still in their infancy, but even with all of its blustery ripeness, its puckery young tannins and its palpable trailing heat, its enduring message is one of convincing depth and fruity confidence.

2008 Pride Mountain Sonoma County Syrah

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two stars* Pride can usually be counted on for big, flamboyant, optimally ripened wines, and, if this one is long on extract and depth, it is also just a bit firmer and more tightly structured than we have come to expect. It is very deep and generously fruited with deftly placed oak lending a trim of sweetness to it ample blackberry fruit, and while not wholly free of tannin and heat, it does not come close to crossing the line into excess.

The new Verna's Estate Pinot Noir is a perfect example of the frugal drinkability Melville has to offer. From the get-go the nose tells you that you are going to be in for a wildly delicious ride. Strawberry, lavender, Rainier cherry are all presented on a crisp, vibrant frame. The lightweight nature here is nothing to fear, remember this is Pinot and Greg Brewer, more prominently know for his work with Brewer-Clifton and Diatom, makes some of the most feminine, and yet flavor-packed Pinots in California.

There’s plenty of berry and currant fruit as well as oak, but it’s accompanied by tobacco and herbs that give the wine an earthiness. What the wine lacks in dazzle it more than makes up for in elegance and subtlety. Should develop well for at least a decade."

It wasn't the easiest vintage, as 2007 was, but meticulous winemaking did the job, resulting in this amazingly rich, impressively ripe wine that's drinkable now and will develop for many years. The fruits veer toward blackberries, cherries and cola, and the tannins are soft and refined.

The 2008 Kalinda Reserve Cabernet is elegant, structured and ready to go. Sixty-five percent was aged in new French oak, 5% in new American, and the rest in neutral oak barrels. On the palate you get ripe cherries, cedar and cocoa. Not overly ripe, this Cab is balanced by a cleansing acidity and velvety tannins that make it an ideal wine to grab a case of, and to sample a bottle a year while it matures and develops into the kind of wine that first put Oakville on the map. A steal for what's in the bottle. Only 185 cases produced.

2008 Kenneth Volk San Benito County Cabernet Pfeffer

Cabernet Pfeffer is one of the grape varieties that was brought nearly to extinction by the ravages of the Phylloxera louse in France in the late 1800s. Plantings of this variety still exist in old vine plantings in San Benito County. Pfeffer is German for "pepper" and the wines produced from this grape have distinctive spice aromas of crushed peppercorns. This wine is a great complement to grilled and barbequed foods as well as aged cheeses.

2008 Scarecrow "M. Étain" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

The inaugural vintage of Scarecrow's "second label" wine, M. Étain comes from a less rigorous selection of fruit hand-picked from the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford. The wine is cleverly named after the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz, "Étain" being French for "Tin." Pretty cherry, raspberry and plum fruit notes on the nose and palate are deftly interwoven with cookie spices, cigar box, coffee, licorice, chocolate and vanilla bean. Silky tannins make this approachable now.
