Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013 Honig Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2013

This is yet another in a long line of fantastic Sauvignon Blancs from the good folks at Honig.

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!

Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28655 (In Stock)
Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

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.

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 Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012 Product #28873 (In Stock)
Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012 Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012

Founded in 1967, Chappellet quickly established itself as one of Napa’s premier Cabernet estates and the very first to prove the quality of what is now often called Napa’s Grand Cru:  Pritchard Hill.  The Pritchard Hill Cabernets are still some of Napa’s best and can age for decades – the 1969 is legendary and reportedly still fresh and vibrant today.  But, they also usually need years of cellar time before showing well, and Donn and Molly Chappellet wanted fans to have something to drink tonight.

Mountain Cuvee was created to provide immediate satisfaction and delight, and the 2012 edition does that and more.  A blend of  Cabernet Sauvignon (39%) and Merlot (35%) with 12% Malbec and smaller helpings of Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah, it ages in new and used French oak and comes out of the winery ready to enjoy.  The 2012 is a big, rich, wine with layers of currant, black cherry, blackberry, plum, cedar, smoke, and fresh herb aromas and flavors.  The texture is plush and velvety, with the ripe fruit largely hiding the ripe tannins that provide support for enjoying with food or time in cellar.  For all its size and depth, there’s nothing heavy or thick about this classic Napa Bordeaux blend, and it finishes long and fresh with just the right squirt of acidity.  A classy, well-made, Napa red you can enjoy right now at very attractive savings.

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.

Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Rsv 2009 Half Bottle Product #29070 (In Stock)
Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Rsv 2009 Half Bottle Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Rsv 2009 Half Bottle

50% Off - While it Lasts!  Long-lived wines like Mondavi’s top Reserve Cabernet are especially fun to have in half-bottles.  Not only are they convenient for times you don’t want to crack a full bottle, they develop just a tad faster, giving you aged complexity with a shorter wait.  This is an exceptionally good release for this wine and a crazy good price – 50% off the normal half-bottle price.  If you buy 2 half bottles, you’ll pay less than the best price we can find anywhere for a full 750ml!

“78% To Kalon fruit; as of the 2011 vintage, this wine will say To Kalon on the label; blended with 8.3% cabernet franc and 3.5% petit verdot. Saturated red-ruby. Currant, graphite, wild herbs, cedar and sexy oak on the nose, lifted by a floral topnote. A broad and very elegant midweight (I would not have guessed that it was carrying 15.2% alcohol), with lively cassis and floral flavors burnished by mellow oak tones. Lovely fine-grained, long cabernet with excellent lift."International Wine Cellar 94 points

“Mondavi’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is sumptuous and beautiful. Plums, mocha, cloves and pencil shavings are all woven together in this gorgeous, large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon. All the elements are in the right place. Silky, nuanced tannins frame the voluptuous, caressing finish. A wine of centeredness and gorgeous precision, the 2009 is a true standout. The tannins need a few years to soften, but once that starts to happen, the 2009 should enjoy a long life. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.” Wine Advocate 94 points

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.

Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009 Product #28624 (In Stock)
Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009 Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009

Worthy’s Sophia’s Cuvee is the second wine of Axios, a Napa “cult Cabernet” producer best known for its $125 flagship Cab.  It’s been one of our best-selling Napa Cabs ever since its 2001 debut vintage earned 92 points and a place on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list.  Since then, it’s been a super-reliable bottle of Napa Cab with ripe, supple, currant, smoke and green herb flavors and a darkly fruited finish.

The 2009 is a bit more muscular than usual, but still shows right down the middle Napa Cabernet aromas and flavors with good blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, a dash of cassis, and accents of smoky, chocolatey, oak.  Decant it for a bit to let the tannins relax or just pair it with grilled steak.

A blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, (with a hint of Syrah & Malbec), it delivers fresh blueberry and dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit with accents of chocolate and coffee.  A soft, lingering, finish makes this a fine choice for sipping but there's enough stuffing here to handle grilled meat, too.

A Napa Valley legend, White Rock turns out just 3,000 cases of Chardonnay and Cabernet from it's small vineyard in Soda Canyon - all with old-school Napa style and up-to-date quality.  The 2009 Claret is about 50% Cabernet Sauvignon with equal parts Cab Franc and Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot, all aged 32 months in French oak (40% new). Lovely aromas of boysenberry, currant, raspberry and cedar lead to a detailed mouthful of fruit and savory spice flavors with a nice hint of violet.  Firm tannins give this the heft it needs to pair with lamb, although there's enough fruit to just enjoy on it's own now and for 10+ years.
