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

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.

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.

Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010 Product #28368 (In Stock)
Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010 Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010

Plenty of ripeness from this Washington State Bordeaux blend, but also a sense of freshness and clarity to the fruit and spice flavors to go along with overt oak barrel notes.  A classic Washington state blend of Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet franc, with a dash of Syrah..  It's full-bodied, ripe and delicious, with flavors of briary blackberries and plums - great for beef or lamb on the grill.

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.

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 Product #27324 (In Stock)
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 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.

Ch Smith (Charles Smith) Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28446 (In Stock)
Ch Smith (Charles Smith) Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Ch Smith (Charles Smith) Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

From Charles Smith's "modernist project," here's a pretty darn compelling Washington Cabernet with a bit more udner the cork than you'd expect for the price.  Loads of juicy blackcurrant, black cherry, dark chocolate and toasted herb aromas and flavors with a juicy, easy-going, texture and firm, food-friendly, tannins on the back. Good length to the palate and finish and soft enough that it will shine with mushroom-based dishes (or on it's own).  Nice stuff!

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 2010 Product #28138 (In Stock)
Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2010 Efeste Final Final Columbia Valley 2010

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

Elyse Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008 Product #28273 (In Stock)
Elyse  Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008 Elyse  Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008

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

As Wine Advocate says, Paul Hobbs’s “Felino label has for a number of years been synonymous with value.”  Another fine vintage for this big, lush, Argentine Cabernet that’s jam-packed with black fruit, chocolate, spice, and tobacco aromas and flavors.  Lush and plush and nicely concentrated, this is great with a steak or just to sip.

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.

Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011 Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011

From Bill Wathen and Dick Dore's 7200 project that focuses on Bordeaux varietals, this medium-bodied Cabernet is fragrant and complex.  It opens with exotic aromas of resinous herbs and blackberry jam.  On the palate, the tannins are ripe but firm, and it's got plenty of juicy acidity, making it a great partner to a wider variety of foods than most California Cabernets.

Hacienda Del Plata  Zagal Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Hacienda Del Plata  Zagal Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

A delicious bottle of Cabernet full of flavor and character.  Smells great with big scents of cherry and currant plus a touch of mint.  Then juicy and ripe red plum, cassis, blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors with a dash of crushed mint and a dusting of cocoa powder.  Dark chocolate comes up with air and the fruit gets darker and deeper, but everything stays fresh with fine tannins and nice oak shadings on the finish. A lot of richness and depth here for the money.

Hedges CMS Red 2011 Hedges CMS Red 2011

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!

"Pure, clean, enticing aromas of plum, cherry and wild berry are silky in texture, graceful and light, leading to a host of flavors, textures and extra facets. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 92 points

Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011

Michael Honig, his family, and long-time winemaker Kristin Belair turn out some of the best, most consistent, Napa Valley Cabernet year after year.  The care taken in sustainable farming and hands-on winemaking shows in this rich, spicy, Cabernet with plenty of dark berry, spice and cedar notes.  Accents of anise, licorice and dark chocolate add even more complexity.  A fine wine and fine value.

"The mineral, blueberry and pine-needle character is cool here. Bark. Full body but reserved and balanced, with fine tannins and a chocolate, berry and blueberry character. Extremely well done for the vintage, with style and panache. I like this better than the 2010 for its reserve and form. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points
