14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28121 (In Stock)

A perennial "Best Seller" in restaurants, and a very fine value in Washington Cabernet. 14 Hands Cabernet Sauvignon features aromas of red currants and raspberries with subtle hints of spice. Spiced cherry & plum flavors are joined by notes of cocoa and complemented by fine velvety tannins. A little Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Petit Verdot help drive the fruit forward and keep things soft and lush.

For many of you, an opportunity for two “firsts” – your first wine from Moldova and your first pure white wine (not pink – white!) made from the red Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Not sure why the winery went this route, but the results are pretty compelling!  The aromas have some of Sauvignon Blanc's grapefruit and grass notes but the wine's texture is more like Albarino (minerally, sleek) and the flavors of creamy sweet strawberry, pineapple and banana pith suggest something like Verdejo.  There's a snap of jalepeno-like herb on the back, but overall this is nicely cream and fruity and bright.

Antica Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2010 Antica Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2010

Back-to-back 92 point Wine Advocate ratings for this under-the-radar and very classy Napa Cab.

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with juicy plums, black cherries, mocha, spices and French oak, all of which come to life on a big, powerful frame. There is nothing subtle in this rich, intense Cabernet Sauvignon. A huge, juicy finish backed up by serious tannins and sweet floral notes rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."Wine Advocate 92 points

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

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.

Bench Cabernet Alexander Valley 2011 Bench Cabernet Alexander Valley 2011

You wouldn't guess 2011 was a difficult vintage for California Cabernet from this lovely, ripe, and very pure Alexander Valley example.  Full of bright red currant fruit and gentle oak spice aromas and flavors with just a touch of varietal fresh tobacco.  The fruit comes to the fore on the long, satisfying, finish where a coffee note lingers nicely.  A fun, fine value Cabernet for food or solo sipping.

Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Rock solid performance here in the tricky 2010 harvest.

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa represents an attractive blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. This fruity, still grapy 2010 is nicely concentrated with lots of cassis and plum notes. Medium to full-bodied, pure, juicy, sexy and alluring, it will clearly age for 15 or more years despite its early appeal."Wine Advocate 90 points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

As always, delicious right now and sure to improve over the next few years.

"Although tasty, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is slightly less intense and powerful compared to the 2010. It reveals supple tannins, abundant black fruit and spice notes, and an easy-drinking yet seriously endowed, medium to full-bodied personality. Drink it over the next decade.

Though the Wagner family is not quite the pioneer that Louis Martini, Charles Krug, Beaulieu Private Reserve, Ridge Vineyards and a few others are, they have long farmed and made the wines at Caymus Vineyards."Wine Advocate 90 points

"A fleshy, showy youngster, putting ripe fruit and jazzy oak on display. An impressive 2011 that reverberates with ripe cherry, plum and currant notes that will be at their most appealing early on, as this veers toward dryer tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 92 points

Once again, a brilliant, cellar-worthy, Special Select.

"A brilliant wine, and one of the stars of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts aromas of blueberry pie, blackberries, cassis and white flowers. This full-bodied, velvety textured, delicious 2011 is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a terrific success for the vintage."Wine Advocate 95 points

Ch Montelena Cabernet Estate 2009 Product #26917 (In Stock)
Ch Montelena Cabernet Estate 2009 Ch Montelena Cabernet Estate 2009

A benchmark for great Napa Valley Cabernet.

"Highly perfumed aromas of black cherry and menthol lifted by rose and spice oils. Suave, pure and vibrant, with red berry and spice flavors lifted by a pungent minty quality. Nothing black fruit about this vintage. Finishes with fine-grained, rather silky tannins and terrific energy. Less forbidding at this young stage than many recent vintages of this wine, and in a distinctly food-friendly style. This wine benefited dramatically from its final months in barrel."International Wine Cellar 93 points

"Montelena’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate wraps around the palate with serious depth. Even with all of its intensity, the 2009 has a silkiness that makes it incredibly delicious at this early stage. Red berries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs all flesh out on the generous, radiant finish. While many 2009s are a bit tight today, Montelena’s 2009 Estate is showing very nicely, although it is keeping some cards close to the vest. I imagine the 2009 will start to enter its prime drinking window around age 8-10 and drink well for at least another decade beyond that. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029."Wine Advocate 93+ points

Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2011 Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2011

As you'd expect, the 2011 edition of this Napa classic is a touch more elegant and perfumed than 2010, with classic aromas of dried cherry, redcurrant, licorice, dried flowers and mint.  A middle-weight Cab this vintage, but with lovely floral-accented fruit and spice and soft, silky, tannins.  Ready to enjoy right now with lean beef (think filet) or lamb loin chops or just to sip by itself.

Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #27006 (In Stock)
Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Chilensis Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

This is a big "bang for the buck" Cabernet from Chile that reminds you how Chile first established its global reputation for top quality Cab at rock-bottom prices.  Fruit for this wine grows near Chile’s Coastal Mountain range in the Colchagua Valley.  Daytime high temperatures can reach 98 degrees here, but cooling breezes from the Pacific Ocean cool the fruit at night to preserve freshness and acidity.

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of classic Cabernet fruit –  currant, plum, and blackberries.  It also display's Chile's trademark whiff of herbs and some appealing tobacco aromas, giving the wine more complexity than you’d expect at this price.  In the mouth, it’s juicy and satisfying, with an extra dose of black raspberry and currant fruit.  The juicy acids keep everything in balance and make this a flexible companion with a wide range of foods.

Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #28169 (In Stock)
Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Bob Stack is best known as an importer of fine value wines from around the world (his Chapoutier Bila-Haut wines have been favorites for years).  He named his California negotiant venture Clos Robert to clearly indicate his preference for French-styled Cabs, and that’s what he delivers here.  Although how he managed to find such high-quality fruit in the difficult 2011 vintage is a mystery!

The 2011 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% Petite Sirah and 10% Petit Verdot, all aged for a few months in used french oak.  It's full of lush currant, cassis, and black plum fruit with just the right accent of Bordeaux-like fresh herb.  Full-bodied and nicely ripe, the touches of oak spice and bitter chocolate add more complexity and the fine tannin will handle a steak easily - but there's no reason not to drink this all by itself. Hands down, the best value we've seen in California over the past two years.

Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2009 Product #26434 (In Stock)
Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2009 Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2009

Efeste keeps turning out fascinating, delicious, and wonderfully food-friendly wines from their vineyards in Washington's Columbia Valley.  Final Final is one of the few blended wines they make, a marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Syrah (42%), and Mouvedre (2%).  Cab provides the backbone of the wine, delivering structure, power, and black currant fruit.  The Syrah adds juicy black fruits and a touch of spice.  Even this tiny bit of Mouvedre delivers more spice and fantastic earthy note.  At only 13.3% ABV, this is fresh and bright as well as rich and deep.  Fantastic steak and grilled meat wine!

"Very firm and chewy, this red features tannins swarming around its pure currant and fresh berry flavors, finishing with refinement. Needs time."Wine Spectator 90 points

Efeste keeps turning out fascinating, delicious, and wonderfully food-friendly wines from their vineyards in Washington's Columbia Valley.  Final Final is one of the few blended wines they make, a marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon (59%) and Syrah (41%), all aged in French and American oak.  Cab provides the backbone of the wine, delivering structure, power, and black currant fruit while the Syrah adds juicy black fruits and a touch of spice.  Fantastic steak and grilled meat wine!

"Another superb effort and a rocking value, the 2010 Final-Final is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Syrah, from a variety of vineyards throughout the state, that was aged in one-third new French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Loaded with notions of mulled spices, tobacco, smoked herbs and black currants, it is a full-bodied, super rich wine that possesses remarkable purity and precision for a wine of its size. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2018.:Wine Advocate 91 points

"Broad and generous, with focus to the black currant, blackberry, licorice and herb flavors, persisting against crunchy tannins as the finish expands. Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Best from 2016 through 2020. 3,711 cases made"Wine Spectator 91 points

What a treat - a late-released Napa Cab from the outstanding 2008 vintage to enjoy right now!

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard is a beautiful, if somewhat inward wine graced with exquisite finesse. Freshly cut flowers, mint, blackberries and cassis are some of the nuances that emerge from this delineated, finessed Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the wine is a bit tight, but it should soften with another year or so in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."Wine Advocate 92 points

Fowles Are You Game Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Product #27987 (In Stock)
Fowles Are You Game Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Fowles Are You Game Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

From Victoria, Australia's coolest growing region, the Fowles family crafts food friendly wines that show especially well with the game Matt Fowles likes to bring home from the outback. The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off aromas of cassis, black cherry, and blackberry with a touch of Australia's classic eucalyptus and menthol on top. Bright red currant and plum flavors get accents of spice and keep on pumping over chewy tannins.  A fine burger companion, although it will certainly work with venison or, possibly, kangaroo.

Washington state winery has its roots in Old-World winemaking, eschews scores, and is all about showcasing the potential of the terroir in Washington. Devoid of flash, pretention, or inflated prices, this winery represents the kind of honest winemaking and independent spirit that we love to support.  It doesn't hurt that the wine's delicious!

In 2011, the CMS is once again a blend of Cabernet and Merlot with a dash of Syrah. You'll find plenty of dark fruit, earth, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate the fruit flavors are even richer and more satisfying than last year, but the structure and juicy acidity keeps it all in balance. A screaming value that's fabulous for a grilled steak or a big, juicy burger!
