Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Product #31458 (In Stock)
Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014

Our first thought on tasting this robust blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah was, "Wow - this tastes like a pretty darn good $25 red blend."  At better than 20% under that, it's better still!  Delivers a bold  mouthful of dark berry and black cherry fruit framed in generous French oak flavors (vanilla, chocolate, spice) and a smooth, rich, finish.  Perfect with roasts and steaks or just to sip.

Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015 Product #31689 (In Stock)
Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015 Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015

We're not really sure what's up with the label here and we haven't learned anything interesting about the winery or winemaker.  But we certainly appreciated what was in the glass - a big, bold, butter and hazelnut-laced mouthful of Napa Valley Chardonnay!  Bold aromas and flavors of pear, apple and stone fruit are given more depth by notes of buttered caramelized nuts.  Mouthfilling and rich, this comes into a nice, refreshing, focus on the buttery, nutty, but all the way dry finish.  Old-school California Chardonnay fun here!

The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 Product #31334 (In Stock)
The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014

This is an unknown wine with a fantastic pedigree.  Winemaker Neil Koch learned red wine making from Philippe Melka at Seavy, Vineyard 29 and Bryant family before making Cabernet and Chardonnay at Lewis Cellars.  Today, he’s a wine broker in Napa, which gives him plenty of insight into the best places in the Valley to get outstanding (if under-priced) grapes.  His 2014 The Dude blends Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (27%) and Petite Verdot (7%) from vineyards in Calistoga, Rutherford, Carneros and Oak Knoll.  The northern sites give power and flesh; the cooler, southern, vineyards add brightness, freshness, and keep the alcohol at a very palatable 14.1%.

Opens beautifully with 30 minutes of air. Rich, dark aromas of black and red currant, blackberry, chocolate, cedar, herb and spice burst from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how it pumps out dark fruit, bitter-sweet chocolate, crushed herb, and baking spice flavors that completely fill your mouth.  There’s plenty of luxury here, but also a fine freshness and vigor as the flavors drive on through the finish before expanding with a pop of late arriving flavors.  Just 1,200 cases made. Smooth, rich, flavorful, and delicious now – 2024.

Old-school Napa Zinfandel here from vineyards at 1,000 - 1,200 feet overlooking the ruined walls of the grist wills built by pioneer J.B. Chiles. A big, bold, Zinfandel with plenty of tangy, just picked, briary berry fruit and accents of mountain flowers and smoke.  It's fresh and clean, with plenty of body and rich fruit, but also a pure, long, Zinny finish.

Textbook Merlot Napa 2014 Textbook Merlot Napa 2014

The name says it well here in this excellent, classically styled, Napa Merlot.  Spicy red currant and smoke aromas lead to a nicely rich mouthful of blackberry and black currant fruit with accents of spice and smoke.  A dash of Cabernet adds complexity. Full and fleshy with a smooth, food-friendly, finish leaving just a hint of tobacco and oak spice lingering.  Textbook Merlot indeed!

Youthfully tight at first, but gains fantastic richness and length with air.

"The 2012 Chardonnay is gorgeous. Lemon oil, pastry, white flowers and butter are all woven together in a pretty, textured Chardonnay endowed with tons of depth and pure structure. Bright veins of acidity support a striking finish laced with nectarine and orange blossom. This is a fabulous showing from Pride."  Antonio Galloni 93 points

Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012

Another winner from Napa's hugely successful 2012 harvest, this 95% Cabernet aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.  It's a stylish Napa Cabernet, with loads of redcurrant, berry, and currant fruit accented by notes of coffee, chocolate, cedar, and tobacco.  Delicious from first sip, this gains length and depth with air, with more coffee/mocha notes emerging over the fine-grained tannins.  Tastes like a $50+ bottle and ready now with steak and lamb.

Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Named for a giant, pre-statehood ranch that stretched from Rutherford to Calistoga, this is Joe Wagner's take on a traditional California field blend.  Napa Valley Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot and Syrah ferment and age together for 18 months in French oak.  Big aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, cherry and black pepper.  Then bold flavors of tobacco, cherry pie, licorice and lots of super-ripe dark fruit with a touch of sweet oak on the finish.  Bold stuff for big food!

Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014

As you'd expect from this estate, here's a right down the middle, classically styled, Napa Sauvignon Blanc - or "Fume Blanc" as Robert Mondavi christened the style.  A blend of 90% Sauivgnon Blanc, 6% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Musque (for extra aromatics), all aged 5 months in neutral barrel.  Big aromas of sweet citrus, tropical fruit and fresh flowers lead to mouth-filling flavors of grapefruit, green melon, white peachh and a hint of smokey herb.  Finishes clean and crisp and dry.

Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2014 Product #31226 (In Stock)
Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2014 Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2014

While Chappellet doesn't make this wine, their "introductory cuvee," available for critics to review, it's always one of the very best values in California.  And, as Antonio Galloni noted last year, the Chappellet wines are just getting better.  "Quality is on the rise at Chappellet, one of the most historic wineries in Napa Valley. Winemaker Philip Corallo-Titus credits new state of the art optical sorting equipment for much of the upswing in quality. Corallo-Titus adds that the recently built new winery also allows him to keep temperatures low during aging and therefore use less SO2... There is no question the newer wines at Chappellet are terrific."

Mountain Cuvee was created to provide immediate satisfaction and delight, all delivered in spades by this outstanding 2014.  This year it's 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 11% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc.  The large slug of Malbec is something of a Chappellt trademark and brings unusual freshness to this 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. Delicious stuff.

Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013 Product #31416 (In Stock)
Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013 Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013

Flora Springs crafts their Napa Red blend from Cabernet Sauvignon (52%) and Merlot (20%) plus Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc lots grown for Trilogy plus a nice dose (17%) of rich, meaty, Syrah.  In the great 2013 vintage, there's a lot going on here, starting with bold aromas of black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, sage, and baking spice.  The spice - clove and allspice - shows on the palate and finish, too, giving complexity to the ripe black cherry and red currant fruit and accents of cedar and savory herb.  A nicely chewy finish gives this the heft for steak or lamb, but the wine stays silky enough to drink most anytime you're craving a rich Napa blend.

Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015 Product #31098 (In Stock)
Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015

Always one of California's very best Sauvignon Blancs (last vintage rated 94 points by WE!), the 2015 delivers the goods again. A big slug of aromatic Sauvignon Musque gives an exotic note to the passion fruit, lemon pulp, pear and white peach fruit and lifts the aromas and flavors nicely.  A touch of wood gives this smoky complexity but doesn't detract from the firm, fresh, crisp, finish.

A perennial "Top 10" wine in fine restaurants across the USA, the 2014 Cakebread once again opens with vanilla, light butter, and cinnamon/nutmeg scents.  Medium-bodied, the flavors follow the nose with the addition of ripe apple, melon, and bright citrus fruit.

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Product #30758 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

The husband-and-wife team of Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams crafted their 421 case 2013 Cabernet from four outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.  Anomaly in St. Helena gives richness, Farella in Coombsville freshness, Sleeping Lady in Yountville structure, and Moulds in the Oak Knoll hills grip and complexity.  This is the richest, most deeply fruited and velvety textured Zeitgeist Cabernet yet – it will fill up your mouth and coat your palate with Napa’s best! – but no loss of the balance and poise that keeps this fresh and fascinating glass after glass.  A brief decant is all it needs to delight right now, although feel free to lay this down for 15+ years if that’s your thing.

"The fresh sage, blackberry and sweet black tobacco aromas and flavors are compelling. Full body, yet shows form and tension. Fresh and delicious finish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 94 points

"Good dark ruby. Captivating floral lift to the aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and graphite minerality, with complementary sweet oak nuances. Sweet, dense, supple and deep, with dark berry and spice flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity and accented by piquant pepper and herb notes. Finishes juicy and long, with firm-edge tannins and lovely floral lift. Very well done."  Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points

"There are 421 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa from the same four sites used for the 2012. This wine is coiled tightly and displays higher tannin as well as higher extract and richness. It has an inky purple color and beautiful, dense blackberry and cassis flavors along with hints of licorice, forest floor and earth. Some background oak also makes an appearance."Wine Advocate 93+ points

Winemaker Philippe Melka is a wizard with texture, and this always marries fine levels of Napa power with super silky, plush, tannins for structure and aging potential.  The 2013 Prop Red shows the classic energy and structure of this great, great, Napa vintage, so try to leave some of this in a cool place until 2019 or so to get everything it has to offer.

"A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. This wine was aged in 85% new Taransaud oak for 19 months prior to bottling of 650 cases. The wine is a beauty, with loads of charcoal, scorched earth, blackcurrants and blackberry fruit present, along with underlying smoky notes. It is dense purple, full-bodied, and rich, with moderate tannin. This wine will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring and drink well for another 20-25 years."Wine Advocate 96+ points
