1995 York Creek Spring Mountain District Meritage (Previously $55)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Red-ruby color. Vibrant aromas of cassis, black cherry, shoe polish and oak spice. Firm, focused dark berry flavors are supported by a solid spine of acids and tannins. Very unevolved but not hard or tart. Should age slowly and well." (6/1999) Wine Spectator: "Tight and firm, with a compact focus on the chunky currant, mineral, plum and blackberry flavors, it slowly unfolds to reveal more nuances. Should reward patience in the cellar. Made by Cathy Corison." (1/2000)

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."

2010 Domaine Carneros Brut Sparkling Wine

90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "There is touch of candy and distant suggestions of peaches to be found in both the aromas and flavors of this explicitly champenized offering, but the wine is fixed first and last on articulate yeast and is a complete sparkler that hits all of the right marks. It comes with a fine and decidedly creamy mousse and exhibits a little more depth as well as an extra measure of richness when compared to most of its Brut cousins, and it is kept buoyant and bright from beginning to end by its enlivening, seamlessly fit acidity."

1997 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is a dense purple color with boisterous, sweet, spicy, new oak, licorice, and olive notes. This flamboyant wine tastes lighter than I would have expected for a 1997. In the mouth, it reveals medium body, sweet jammy cherry fruit, and a soft finish." (12/2000) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Ruby-red, with a hint of development at the rim. Classic California cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, tar and menthol. Began slightly lean and herbaceous but seemed to put on weight and gain in texture as it opened in the glass. Firm acids are a bit tart but ...Read More »

2010 Stony Hill Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay

(Web-2012)" K&L Notes: According to the winery: "'I believe this is going to be a great wine...it already is!' That's what winemaker Mike Chelini says about our 2010 Chardonnay vintage. As always, it is pale straw in color. Its aromas carry a distinctive minerality backed by green apple, Muscat and lemon zest.

2002 Pride Mountain Napa/Sonoma Counties Merlot

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Full and delicious, Pride's merlot achieves a balanced ripeness at the mountaintop border of Napa and Sonoma counties. The wine has density of fruit while it retains a spot-on varietal identity, a flavor of black cherry and rose petal jam. Tannins amplify the richness with a chocolate warmth, evenly meshed with the fruit across the palate." (6/2005)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "What a fabulous Merlot. Yes, it’s dense in texture, like molten metal, with melted tannins, but it’s kept lively with clean acids.

2004 Heitz Cellar "Trailside" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

In the early 1980s, the Heitz Family acquired a marvelous Rutherford vineyard bordered on one side by the Silverado Trail and nudged on the other by the Conn Creek. Thus the Trailside Vineyard was born. This is an opulent wine known for its overall powerful Cabernet varietal expression, lush mouthfeel, and bold flavor. Aged for three-and-a-half years in a combination of American and French Limousin oak, the 2004 "Trailside" is a classic.

Dense but tightly wound and not overly sweet; has a silky texture despite possessing a strong acid spine. Finishes with palate-cleansing acids and a late spicy character. This very young wine will need a good decade of cellaring, but even today there are no rough edges."

It is energetic and alive from front to back, and if not quite sporting the dazzling intensity of the High Plains bottling, it has picked up some of the age-encouraging acidity that is so much a part of the Octagon bottling."
