Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #28231 (In Stock)
Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Another solid vintage for what must be one of Napa's most consistent "top value" Cabernet Sauvignon's.  Sappy, fruit-forward, aromas of currant, cherry and blackberry lead to a soft, supple, mouthful of plum, currant and dark berry fruit with accents of cedar, fresh herb, and spice.  The plush velvet tannins give support but don't get in the way of enjoying this easygoing Napa red.

This is yet another in a long line of fantastic Sauvignon Blancs from the good folks at Honig. A blend of 96% Sauvignon Blanc, 1% Muscat and 3% Semillon, this gets two separate fermentations - one whole cluster pressed and another destemmed with a little time on the skins. The wine is fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve its fresh fruit flavors and aromas. Aromas of orange blossom and grapefruit are accompanied by lemon, melon, peach and nectarine flavors that are ripe, juicy and refreshing. Medium bodied with a crisp, refreshing, slightly minerally finish. Just delicious stuff!

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28698 (In Stock)
Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink every day.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style – but at an eye-opening value price.

You’ll get good sense of why everyone is so excited about Napa’s 2012 Cabernets here, starting with the sweet and savory aromas of cherry, currant, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, and crushed mint.  The flavors follow the nose at first, but with air gain breadth and creaminess, coating your palate with layers of crushed blackberry, cassis, roasted meat, and rich chocolate.  Delicious stuff, but it’s the elegant structure, perfect balance, and sophisticated tannins lying underneath the long finish that are really exciting in a wine at this price.  A “real deal, real steal” bottle of Napa Cabernet you should not miss!

Parcel 41 Merlot Napa Valley 2012 Product #28384 (In Stock)
Parcel 41 Merlot Napa Valley 2012 Parcel 41 Merlot Napa Valley 2012

"Parcel 41" was the original surveyor's designation for this winery's site in Napa, and the wine is a touch "old school" too! It's rock solid, right down the middle, Napa Merlot with flavors and aromas of redcurrant, coffee, vanilla and herb.  The texture is plump and soft in the middle before fine, firm, tannin comes up on the lightly creamy finish. Easy to like and drink on its own or with lamb or beef.

When you've starred as head winemaker for St. Emilion's Ch La Tour Figeac, you  know a little something about great Merlot. Winemaker Aaron Pott brings that expertise to bear on this blend of Merlot from Napa's Yountville and Oak Knoll regions.  Very pretty aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry and fresh herb lead to a plump, soft (but shapely) mouthful of cocoa, mint, plum, sweet cherry and savory mushroom flavors.  The finish is smooth and fresh and stylish, especially for a wine at this price.  Great value.

Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28433 (In Stock)
Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Twenty Rows was founded to bring you “Napa Valley Wines You Can Drink Every Day” and, while the whole line-up is impressive, the benchmark Napa Cab remains the standout.  A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon softened with 10% Merlot, one taste and you’ll see that Twenty Rows is a big step up from even very good $20 California Cabs - in fact, it competes nicely with many $30-$40 Napa reds.

The 2012 is the best we've tasted here, with a new level of richness and depth to the black currant/cherry fruit and accents of cocoa and roasted coffee.  Still dense and rich, but with more lift and earthy complexity and a nice dark chocolate note on the smooth finish.  Drinking well now and sure to improve over 3-4 years.

Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28468 (In Stock)
Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Not a lot of history here, with 2004 the Bonnano family's first vintage.  But, there's plenty of classic Napa Valley Cabernet character and class in the bottle.  A blend of Valley floor fruit from Rutherford, Oakville, St. Helena and Oak Knoll aged 20 months in (mostly used) French oak. Very Napa aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, crushed herb and cedar with a rich texture and plush, soft, tannins.  A prickle of juicy acidity at the end makes this especially fine with richer meats, but you can certainly just sip it, too.  Nice value.

Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012 Product #27904 (In Stock)
Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012 Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2012

Chappellet has been turning out benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon from its vineyards high on Prichard Hill for 40 years now, but it's their Napa Valley Chardonnay that's won the most fans here over the years.  The 2012 is made by blending fruit from cool vineyards near San Pablo Bay, the Napa side of Carneros, and a little from Oak Knoll just above Carneros.  It's barrel fermented and aged on the lees for creamy richness, but only one-third sees new wood and a bit more than half goes through malolactic fermentation (so the wine stays crisp and fresh).

California's 2012 harvest is shaping up to be an outstanding vintage, and Chardonnay's like this one show you why. The aromas are concentrated and generous, with scents of orange zest, pear, apple, lemon drop and pretty accents of baking spice and vanilla from the oak.  In the mouth, it delivers a lush mouthfull of peach and apple fruit with a good dose of lemon custard, creme fraiche, and sweet spice.  The finish is clean, bright, and focused with nice apple-like acidity and notes of toast and ginger lingering nicely.  This will actually flesh out and get even better over the next few years, although there's certainly no reason to not enjoy it right now!  Steal of a price, too.

Calder Charbono Napa 2009 Product #27616 (In Stock)
Calder Charbono Napa 2009 Calder Charbono Napa 2009

Charbono arrived in the US from France in the 1880s and was very popular at one time.  Now fewer than 70 acres remain and it's dying out quickly in France, too. That's too bad, because as this wine from 40 year-old Napa vines shows, it can make a complex, meaty, wine that's fully ripe at just 13% abv.  Fans of Rhone reds - especially those that get a little barnyardy - will love the complex, earthy aromas and flavors that complement the black fruit at the wine's core.  The black raspberry fruit pumps on to the finish with loads of earthy barnyard complexity.
