Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Product #30456 (In Stock)
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.

Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2014 Product #30985 (In Stock)
Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2014 Barrique Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2014

From Sonoma's famous Dry Creek Valley and Knights Valley regions, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers plenty of rich, ripe, intensity in a (for California) nicely medium-bodied, 13.8% package. Vibrant aromas of plum, blackberry, blackcurrant and smoke lead to a firm, fine-grained, palate of rich fruit, spice and more.  Silky through the middle and then firm and chalky on the finish, this is a great burger or steak Cab that leaves cassis, coffee and briary black fruit lingering.   Nice value.

Beaulieu Vineyards George De Latour Private Rsv 2012 Product #29923 (In Stock)
Beaulieu Vineyards George De Latour Private Rsv 2012 Beaulieu Vineyards George De Latour Private Rsv 2012

When André Tchelistcheff arrived at BV in 1938, he tasted a small lot of the 1936 vintage that the Latour family was holding back for their own pleasure – a wine they called Private Reserve.  He insisted that it be released and later named it for the winery founder, Georges de Latour, and it soon became America’s most important Cabernet Sauvignon.  Today, made in a special winery created just for this wine and drawn from the heart of the BV #1 and #2 vineyards, Private Reserve is making its claim for greatness once again. You’ll find showier high-end Napa Cabs these days, but few that so perfectly combine the rich, ripe, fruit and dense concentration of Napa’s 2012 harvest with clarity of flavors and pure, sweet, tannins on the long finish. A stunner.

"The deep ruby/purple-colored 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour is BV’s flagship wine. It boasts sweet notes of charcoal, burning embers, vanillin, tar and copious quantities of blackcurrant fruit. In keeping with this generously endowed vintage, the wine is supple, full-bodied, multidimensional and opulent. It will drink beautifully young and last for 20-25 years."Wine Advocate 94 points

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Castello Dei Rampolla Sammarco 2011 Product #31127 (In Stock)
Castello Dei Rampolla Sammarco 2011 Castello Dei Rampolla Sammarco 2011

What's Italy's greatest Cabernet-based Supertuscan?  Over the past few years, one could make a case for Castello dei Rampolla's Sammarco and d'Alceo over more famous names like Sassicaia and Ornellia.  The 2011 Sammarco is once again among the very top-rated wines of the vintage.  An outstanding deal, if limited.

"Aromas of tar, chilis, raspberries and dark chocolate follow through to a full body with super velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Need three years to soften. Another superb blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon from the organic estate in Panzano. Try in 2018."  James Suckling 95 points

"The 2011 Sammarco is so youthful it almost tastes like a barrel sample! Dark, rich and inviting, the 2011 possesses notable concentration and depth, with round yet powerful tannins and a surprising level of freshness for the year. A host of black cherry, graphite, smoke, plum and lavender notes accompany the powerful finish. It will be quite some time before the 2011 is ready to drink, but there is plenty to look forward to."  Vinous (Galloni) 95+ points

"The fullness and generosity here is absolutely amazing. The 2011 Sammarco is one of the protagonists of this vintage. In fact, I think Sammarco represents the hot 2011 growing season better than any other wine from the Chianti Classico area. The bend this year is 94% Sangiovese with 6% Merlot (the breakdown between the two grapes is usually 90-10) and the wine is fermented with ambient yeasts. The bouquet is beautifully redolent of dark berry fruit, soft spice, licorice and cola. The wine's overall elegance and length are both impressive. Drink 2015-2029"Wine Advocate 94+ points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Product #31103 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  On release, the wine can be almost overwhelming in its rich, creamy, density but there are plenty of the firm (but very ripe) tannins needed to support long-term aging.

"Zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins leading to a long, powerful and refined aftertaste that keeps reverberating while maintaining a strong personality. Drink now through 2030."Wine Spectator 95 points

Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #31113 (In Stock)
Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Clos Robert Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

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.  And, in California's great 2013 vintage, this is the best release ever here and tastes far more expensive than it is.

It's full of lush raspberry, 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.  The chunky texture and soft "chew" on the finish mean this 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 few years.

Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30796 (In Stock)
Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Give this 3-4 years and then watch out!

"A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Product #30643 (In Stock)
Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The big Wine Advocate rating for the 2013 pushed price up a bit, but this is still a fine value in robust Napa Cab. You'll find loads of black fruit (blackberry, currant, and cherry) framed by notes of spice box, chocolate, and crushed mint.  It's soft and supple and mouthfilling and the fruit gushes right on through the spicy chocolate and herb finish. Stands up to steak well but very sippable.

Finca Decero Cabernet Remolinos Mendoza 2013 Product #30537 (In Stock)
Finca Decero Cabernet Remolinos Mendoza 2013 Finca Decero Cabernet Remolinos Mendoza 2013

There's an awful lot going on here for an under $20 Cabernet Sauvignon.  The aromas are lush with generous doses of blackcurrant, black cherry, plum and chocolate.  It's lush on the palate, too, with layers of rich fruit, dark chocolate, spice, smoke, and more.  So far, so good - but things get really exciting on the finish where the flavors really fan out and coat your mouth with juicy blackberry, creamy chocolate, black raspberry, and cassis flavors that linger long and sweet and pure.  The fruity acidity keeps the wine fresh while fine, dusty, tannins give the wine heft and the potential to get even better over the next few years.  A superb value in Napa-style Cabernet that just happens to come from Mendoza!

“A full-bodied wine with ultra-fine tannin and a caressing finish. Lots of fruit yet reserved, balanced and stylish. Well-made cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.”  James Suckling 92 points

“Finca Decero, the Agrelo estate planted in the year 2000, keeps producing prodigious examples from the region. Polished, very drinkable wines that reflect place and vintage. The nose of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Remolinos Vineyard was full of cherries in liqueur and jammy strawberries with a pinch of sweet spices. There is only a hint of raspberry leaf in the palate which is polished by very fine tannins and good consistency to stand up to empanadas and lighter food, like the proverbial lamb chops. 120,000 bottles produced.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013 Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013

Fisher specializes in marrying the rich fruit and power of Napa Valley to the more supple, round, character of Sonoma County Cabernet - "Unity."  The 2013 is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon plus 12% Malbec and dollops of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot from Napa and the Mayacamus Mountains.  It's a rich and sweetly fruited wine with plenty of intensity to the red and black currant fruit with accents of smoke, coffee, and spice.  Supple and easy to drink, but with enough structure for steak.  A classy, delicious, Cab.

Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30884 (In Stock)
Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

After struggling for much of the early 2000s, Flora Springs looks to have returned to good form in the past few vintages.  The style here is “focused Napa” – plenty of ripeness channeled by solid acid and tannic structure.  Loads of dark currant, coffee, chocolate and oaky spice on the nose are followed by ripe black currant fruit lifted by tangy acids and accented by bitter chocolate and coffee ground notes.  The dusty tannins are bold enough to shine with grilled steak, but this is soft enough to just drink alone as well.  Rock-solid Napa Cab.

"This is a big, bold and grippy wine, reflective of the vintage in its classic structure and age-worthiness. Cedar, black cherry and chalky tannins give it character and seasoning. The smooth, silky texture should take on additional velvetiness in the glass. It finishes with finesse."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010 Product #30516 (In Stock)
Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010 Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010

A great release from this legendary Napa estate perched high atop Mount Veeder.  After 44 years, including the 1971’s appearance in the famous Judgement of Paris tasting in 1976, this is owner/winemaker Bob Travers’ final vintage as former Screaming Eagle winemaker Andy Erickson takes over.  If you’ve ever wondered what the greatest Napa Cabernets of the 1960s and 1970s tasted like young, the answer is “this.”  From dry-farmed vineyards at the top of Mount Veeder, picked early at high acidity and low sugar (just 13.25% abv), and aged 2 years in larger barrels, 1 year in barrique, and 1 year more in bottle, this is the essence of elegance.  Fun to taste now, but really wants 5 years more in cellar and will last a long, long, time.

"Graphite, smoke, licorice, game, savory herbs and a host of inky blue/blackish stone fruits make an appearance in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautifully layered and intense, the 2010 offers a compelling interplay of finesse and power. Still, my sense is that the 2010 is holding back much of its potential. Readers need to be patient, but the 2010 is shaping up to be a gem."  Vinous (Galloni) 95+ points
