2006 Roederer Estate "L'Ermitage" Anderson Valley Brut

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* All the benefits of maturity come through in this deliciously complex flagship sparkling wine of the French-owned estate. It shows very minute, slow-rising bubbles and a beautiful bouquet of ginger, cinnamon, cherry and fresh croissants. The flavors are layered, intricate, subtle but somehow rich. A lush and seemingly soft texture is supported by fresh acidity that encourages a long and delicate finish. Mature, but not old, it should be great through 2020 or longer."

2006 Merry Edwards "Klopp Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2006 Merry Edwards "Klopp Ranch" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Made in the Merry Edwards style, which is powerfully ripe and extracted, yet always balanced. Dazzles with enormous cherry pie filling, cola, sassafras, beef jerky, raspberry tart, anise, pepper and smoky cedar flavors that finish with amazing length. Yet the tannin-acid structure is superb, and the wine is totally dry. Beautiful now, and should age through 2012." (8/2009) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, apricot pit and minerals. Juicy red fruit flavors are complicated by tangy minerals and a bitter cherry nuance. Becomes more elegant with ...Read More »

2006 Goldeneye Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very rich, very fine, this Pinot is a blend of Goldeneye's best vineyards. It shows a molten density, like liquid silver, lush in red cherries, licorice, cinnamon, coco, dried herb and orange zest flavors, and should develop in the bottle through 2012." (06/09) 90 points from Wine Spectator Insider: "Firm and rich, this is marked by tight mineral, dried currant and berry fruit that gains velocity and depth, with touches of cedar and anise and tannins that give the flavors traction. Needs time. Best from 2014 through 2017." (0... Read More »

2006 Walter Hansel "Cuvée Alyce" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The best cuvee I tasted of the 2006s is the 2006 Chardonnay Cuvee Alyce, a spectacular Chardonnay that possesses notes of buttered citrus, white currants, crushed rocks, honeysuckle, and tropical fruits. It is full-bodied, rich, deep, pure, and stunningly long and intense. This is a superb Chardonnay and the most opulent and fleshy of all these wines. A terrific source of sensational Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays made very much in the style of the wines proprietor Stephen Hansel loves the most, white and red Burgundies, this 80-acre estate continues to bui ...Read More »

Best from 2011 through 2016" (6/2009) K&L Notes: The cult following for Pride Mountain has been in full force for years now. Situated high up at the top of Spring Mountain, the winery straddles the Sonoma/Napa county line and commands a spectacular view of Mount St Helena.

Cabernet Sauvignon." (2/2009)92 points James Suckling: "Full throttle style with loads of blackberry jam and spices on the nose and palate. Fresh mushrooms develop with time. Full and fruity, with polished round tannins. Blackberries and dark chocolate on the finish." (2/2011)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red.

2006 Merry Edwards "Tobias Glen" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Keyed in the nose on the pure, cherry-like fruit that exemplifies Russian River Valley Pinot Noir at its best, this wine shows both plenty of depth and an uncommon sense of sophistication right from the very first. Although balanced and even a touch supple to start, it follows its mates insofar as it firms and takes on a slight bit of latter-palate toughness, but its fruit and its impressions of depth do not abate, and age is again very much needed." (6/2009)92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Similar to the excellent 2005, this bottling needs some time in the cellar to let the fruit, tanni ...Read More »

2006 Williams Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Racy strawberry and raspberry flavors are impressively precise, with tangy orange zest and floral pastille qualities adding verve. Gentle tannins emerge with air and extend through the long, spicy finish." (6/2008)90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Splitting the difference between the sweet cherry succulence of its Russian River Valley siblings and the slightly leaner style found in the other offerings from Williams Selyem, this attractive wine has the markings of a wine that coul ...Read More »

2006 Merry Edwards "Coopersmith" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Arguably the winery's most accessible Pinot, this outgoing effort leads with intense aromas of cherries, raspberries, sweet oak and orange rind and follows suit nicely once in the mouth. Its deep, juicy fruit flavors are backed by a fair dose of youthful acidity, and, if sufficiently tight and firm at the finish to encourage a few years of keeping, it is a wine that will drink well in the near term with the likes of roast duck and pork in savory sauces."

2006 Sean Thackrey "Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch" Mendocino Petite Sirah

95+ points Robert Parker: "The stunning 2006 Sirius, a Petite Sirah from the Eaglepoint Ranch that produced the gorgeous Sangiovese, is about as good as Petite Sirah gets in California. Long-time readers know I am a big fan of this underrated varietal in the Golden State, which also has a terrific track record of aging for 20-30 or more years when made in the manner such as Sean Thackrey's Sirius. This wine has no hard edges but is stacked and packed with black and blue fruits, camphor, and hints of pepper and spice. Moreover, the purity of the wine, the... Read More »

This is all about minerality, with fruit playing second fiddle. Fleshy, smoky orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors are brightened by white flowers and candied anise, with a kiss of herbs on the back. The remarkable mineral expression of this wine reminded me of a top wine from Coche-Dury." (6/2009) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Previously recommended, but no tasting note given."

(6/2008) Wine Spectator: "This maturing Pinot delivers vivid, lively, complex notes of wild berry, raspberry, spice and mineral. From Gap's Crown, Dutton-Manzana, Kanzler and Miron vineyards.

2006 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Cabernet Sauvignon

It is intense, focused, deep, tight and open at the same time, loaded with sweet curranty perfumes and happily endowed with rich oak in the nose, and it is full and supple to start on the palate and tannic to finish. Its inviting underbelly is not to be ignored as it gives the wine a certain drinkability even now when paired with chunks of grilled meat, but its convincing fruit and its solidity promise to keep the wine in good stead for years of rewarding aging."

Vibrant aromas of citrus peel, green apple, gooseberry, mint and crushed stone; I was reminded of Loire Valley chenin and Chablis. Then fat but quite firm in the mouth, with lime, lemon drop and honeysuckle flavors complicated by a metallic whiff (this is fermented in stainless steel and does not go through malolactic fermentation).

Showing the ample creme de cassis, chocolate, seared meat and licorice-driven profile that’s common in this cuvee, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, yet stays lively and fresh, with no sense of weight or alcohol. Drinking beautifully now, it has silky, savory tannin on the finish, and will continue to dish out loads of pleasure through 2026.

2006 Williams Selyem "Bucher Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

Yet the vast flavors range from cherries, pomegranates and persimmons to the cola and Asian spices that always characterize WS Pinots. Best after 2010 and for six years or so."

The wine has fabulous ripeness, full body, and a long finish."

2006 Sean Thackrey "Orion" St Helena Rhone Blend

Finding information to share about Sean Thackrey's wines is about as challenging as locating Thackrey's Bolinas property, which is located an hour north of San Francisco in western Marin County. Thackrey's rustic winery-in-a-eucalyptus grove is only accessible via a twisting road that ends at the Pacific's edge, according to the Wine Spectator. The highly-allocated results are made in Thackrey's distinctive style: powerful and intense with rugged tannins using methods culled from ancient texts, mostly translated (Thackerey reads seven languages).

Powerful, deeply scented bouquet combines fresh red fruits, flowers and Indian spices; turns more pungent with air, picking up a candied floral character that carries onto the palate. Very fresh and silky, with tangy red- and blackcurrant flavors enhanced by building spiciness. The finish will not quit. Already very complex but history says that this wine will richly reward patience."

(7/2009)92 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Two Stars** Wispy suggestions of loam and briar are almost obscured by chocolate and cherries in the highly ripe aromas of this one, but, the wine judiciously takes a step back in the mouth from excess and eschews simple ripeness in favor of sweet oak and deep, fully extracted fruit.

While Futo is situated on western hillsides overlooking Oakville, it displays a style that has more in common with the purity and elegance found in Screaming Eagle, which is a few miles to the east, on the valley floor.
