2010 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2010 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows a good touch of bottle age and a notably oaky presence, marked by dill, vanilla bean and coconut notes wrapped around a rich, authoritative, full-bodied core of loamy earth, dark berry, licorice and espresso. Drink now through 2028." (4/2015) K&L Notes: The 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. As always the wine goes to 100% new American oak barrels for aging. From the winery: "Our 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a seamless wine that expresses bright, fresh fruit char...

2012 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Antonio Galloni: "The highlight among these releases from Robert Craig, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder is off the charts gorgeous. A super-classic Veeder profile of graphite-infused blue and black fruit opens up in the glass. The inclusion of 20% Merlot in the blend helps soften some of the mountain tannins, but there is still no shortage of personality and intensity. A radiant finish round out this knockout effort from Robert Craig. I can't recommend the 2012 highly enough, especially for its very reasonable price tag.

2011 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2011 Dunn Vineyards Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Antonio Galloni: "93+ points. Dark red cherries, plums, menthol, tobacco, new leather and spices are some of the notes that inform the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain. Hints of lavender and licorice develop in the glass as the wine gradually opens up. In 2011, the Howell Mountain Cabernet offers plenty of depth and resonance, but the tannins are quite tamed by Dunn standards, making it a delicious wine to drink earlier than other recent vintages. Randy Dunn's 2011s are surprisingly open, supple and expressive at this stage. Dunn describes 2011 as a year in which t ...Read More »

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made from the Martini selection of Pinot Noir, there are 1,002 cases of the 2012 Pinot Noir Ryan, which comes entirely from the Widdoes Vineyard. Burgundian-like notes of raspberries, blueberries, sassafras, cola, tobacco leaf and barbecued meats are followed by a rich, full-bodied, multidimensional, big, earthy, savory Pinot Noir. Enjoy it over the next decade."93 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark red cherries, plums, smoke, game, spices and new leather are some of the notes that take shape in the 2012 Pinot Noir Ryan Widdoes Vineyard.

2010 Anakota "Helena Dakota" Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The same can be said for the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard. However, it offers sweeter tannins as well as slightly more evolved and complex aromas of unsmoked, high class cigar tobacco, graphite, blackberries, cassis, spring flowers and a distinctive minerality. Although deep, full-bodied and backward, the sweet fruit and tannin provide a more upfront character than the 2009. It, too, is a 30-50-year wine. (RP)" (10/2013) 92-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Anakota's 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Dakota Vineyard is wonderfully alive in the glass. Freshly cut flowers, violet ...Read More »

2012 Darioush Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

"Reflecting the strengths of Napa Valley's 2012 vintage, the Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits beautiful layers of blueberry and black cherry aromas mingled with bittersweet cocoa, cinnamon and cigar box. Rich and dense on the palate with blackberry, dried fig and anise flavors, the wine is further enhanced by savory and earthbound elements of dried sage and French roast coffee. The tannins are firm, refined and mineral-laden, offering a complete, long-term and rewarding wine experience," cites the winery.

2010 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve is a drop-dead gorgeous beauty. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices, licorice and graphite all burst from the glass as the 2010 shows off its personality. While some of Beaulieu's 2010s are ripe and flashy, the Georges de Latour is wonderfully fresh and alive in the glass, not to mention absolutely classic in feel. Graphite, violets and pencil shavings linger on the close. The 2010 has captured every bit of the potential I sensed last year."

2012 Paul Hobbs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon with the Paul Hobbs moniker is pretty serious wine that could easily win many a tasting. Dense purple in color, with notes of blackcurrants, blackberry, charcoal and incense, the wine is full-bodied, opulent and a big-time winner. This is a stunner that’s drinking well already and yet promises to age well for 15-20 years."

It is a dry, deeply flavored, superbly structured wine, rich in tannins, with brooding depths of flavors ranging from black currants, cassis and licorice to hints of dried herbs and sweet, toasty cedar wood. The alcohol is on the high side, in the modern Napa style, but the wine wears its heat well. Start drinking it after 2018."

2013 Paul Hobbs "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Pinot Noir

93 points Antonio Galloni: "A huge, powerful wine, the 2013 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard hits the palate with notable intensity. Game, smoke, grilled herbs, licorice and blue/purplish fruit flesh out over time. Savory, dense and at times quite wild, the Hyde is starkly different in style from the other Pinots in this range. Then again, that is Carneros. (AG)" (1/2015) 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My tasting notes on these same Pinot Noir cuvées in 2013 revealed slightly smaller production numbers, and wines with more crisp acids, perhaps not the flesh and fat of the 2012s, but stylistically, they are more elegant an ...Read More »

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.

Fat and sweet, with good depth of flavor and harmonious acidity. Thick but ripe tannins coat the tongue." (5/1999)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, .5% Merlot, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) has a dark ruby/plum color and a gorgeous, complex nose of cedar, spice box, cherries, jammy plums and cassis.

2011 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast) has a bit of a darker toned than the Russian River bottling, and also firmer in its tannin. Plum, black cherry, menthol, tobacco and licorice meld together gracefully as the 2011 opens up in the glass. The combination of fruit and structure is compelling. This is a fabulous appellation-level Pinot, due in part to the vineyard blend, which in 2011 includes 40% fruit from Gap's Crown, along with Terra del Promissio and Walala.

Its opaque purple color and sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with crushed rock and forest floor notes lead to a broad, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel with excruciatingly high tannins and intense power and richness. It should be forgotten for at least a decade. (RP)" (10/2013) 92-94 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Helena Montana Vineyard stands out for its delineation and nuance.

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It sounds preposterous, but when I put my nose in the 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale, it reminded me of the 1996 Latour. California Cabernets are bigger, weightier efforts than most Bordeaux, so the comparison ends with the aromatics. There are 1,611 cases of this profound Cabernet Sauvignon, which spent 28 months in primarily French oak (a tiny bit of American oak was utilized), and was bottled with neither fining nor filtration. Its dense black/purple color is accompanied by layers of cassis, cedar-tinged fruit, and abundant spice. Muscular, ...Read More »

Still quite youthfully tight, but offers solid concentration and very good length. Just a hint of greenness on the end; the firm tannins reach the teeth." (6/2002) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a deep, saturated ruby/purple color. The wine possesses aromas of sweet toasty oak, earth, spice box, cherries, and currants. It is a soft effort for this vintage. The wine has medium body, and good fruit an ...Read More »

2013 Paul Lato "Suerte - Solomon Hills Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

From the winery: "A development by the Miller family, founders of Bien Nacido Vineyards, this fine project adds a new level of refinement to this region. Knowing Vineyard Manager Chris Hammel’s enthusiasm and commitment, I was motivated to select this vineyard. From the first few vintages, wines from this vineyard made by other producers showed great potential and have not disappointed. Spread on beautifully even hills, this is the most westerly vineyard in the appellation making it the coolest due to its proximity to the ocean. Notoriously low yielding ... Read More »

Sweet red berries, cinnamon, wild flowers, cedar and tobacco are all laced together in a supple, racy Cabernet that is already drinking well. The 2011 is quite delicate today, almost uncharacteristically so. Once again, the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was made entirely from Howell Mountain fruit.

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."

2009 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

Originally built in 1889, Mayacamas is one of the Napa Valley’s oldest wineries. A long road winds up Mount Veeder to the historic stone winery and its estate vineyards, located at elevations between 1,800 and 2,400 feet above sea level. Previously owned by the family (from 1968 to 2013), the winery has been known for making lean, balanced, long-aging wines. Many vintages need a decade or more of cellaring to really find their greatness. These wines bring one back to the old days of California wine, when wines were allowed to age gracefully and develop i... Read More »

From red, rocky volcanic soils, it is a spicy, rich wine with dark mountain fruits, a hint of graphite and white chocolate (or is it mocha?). This is full-bodied, magical stuff that should drink well for at least ten years.

92-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Ridge's 2013 Zinfandel Geyserville is deep, rich and explosive. A much darker wine than the 2012, the 2013 hits the palate with masses of dark red/black fruit followed by iron, smoke and savory herbs. The intensity of fruit nearly covers the tannins that lurk beneath. There is lot to look forward to in this highly promising, engaging Geyserville. The blend is 73% Zinfandel, 17% Carignane, 8% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouschet and 1% Mataro (Mourvèdre). (AG)" (7/2014)93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Taking its accustomed place near the head of this year's class, Ridge's classic field blen ...Read More »

2013 Williams Selyem Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine, a regional blend, shows remarkable achievement in winemaking. Wild strawberry and red cherry exude on the entry, alongside floral elements of violet and lilac. Velvety, resolved tannins make it enjoyable from the get-go, layered in acidity for a buoyant lift on the midpalate and finish, which suggests cinnamon and tea. Enjoy now and through 2020." (7/2015) Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) captures the essence of the appellation in its plump, exuberant fruit and supple personality. Bright saline notes underpin a finish that sparkles wit ...Read More »

1987 Kalin Cellars Reserve Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points John Gilman: "...The superb and utterly classic nose soars from the glass in a constellation of black cherries, cassis, dried eucalyptus, tobacco, superb, stony minerality, a lovely touch of weediness (which I find absolutely proper with Cabernets in this stage of development- in fact, if a wine does not display this characteristic, I often wonder what has been done to suppress this natural side of Cabernet Sauvignon!) and a gentle framing of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with superb focus... Read More »

2012 DuMol "Eoin" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Top Pick!
2012 DuMol "Eoin" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

95 points Antonio Galloni: "DuMol's 2012 Pinot Noir Eoin Sonoma Stage Vineyard has gained considerable weight since I tasted it last year. Dark, voluptuous and layered in the glass, the 2012 boasts fabulous resonance. The flavors are bold and deeply spiced, with tons of richness and pure volume. Dark red cherries, plums, menthol, spices and new leather meld into the plush, inviting finish. The 33% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. I was deeply impressed with the wines I tasted at DuMol this year. Winemaker Andy Smith is no longer at Larkmea ...Read More »

2004 Robert Foley Napa Valley Claret

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from the multi-talented Robert Foley, this opaque purple-colored 2004 Claret displays the Midas touch exhibited by Foley for many years. Sweet aromas of creme de cassis, licorice, charcoal and spice are followed by a beautifully etched, full-bodied wine with sweet tannins, well-integrated acidity, and a hint of background oak. Long, lush and opulent, it can be enjoyed over the next decade. (RP)" (4/2014)92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated medium ruby. Very dark aromas of blackberry, licorice, minerals, tar and molten chocolate. Wonde ...Read More »

2012 Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot (1.5L)

This Merlot-dominated blend reminds us why Duckhorn earned its reputation as one of California's preminent sources for Merlot. The 2012 vintage, with its long hang time, was perfect for making a rich, seamless, structured wine. Winemaker notes: "From its aromas of Santa Rosa plum, creme de cassis, violet and Herbes de Provence to its enticing flavors of olallieberry, sticky toffee and vanilla bean, this is a complex and compelling expression of Napa Valley Merlot."
