Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28886 (In Stock)

LIMITED!  This is the first release for Mercury Head since the WS 93 point 2009 (in 2010/2011, Dave Phinney used all his Cabernet in Pappillon).  From a great harvest, it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 16 months in French oak (50% new).  Here's Dave Phinney's tasting note:  "Saturated ruby red in complexion, the wine exudes elegance, purity and richness. Teeming with profound aromas of black raspberries, currants, cassis, cedar and rose petals, it invites the senses. The entry is lush and pure which provides shape to an ideal symmetry of dark berries, cocoa, plums, and black cherries. The flavors transition into a savory and bright mouthfeel, finishing with absolute elegance and softness."

Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010 Product #28772 (In Stock)
Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Spring Mtn Rsv 2010

A big young wine that will be better in 5 years (but tempts right now).

"Micheal Keenan has done an incredible job at this Spring Mountain winery over the last 10-15 years, producing one of the finest Cabernet Francs in all of northern California as well as hitting all cylinders with his other Bordeaux varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot as well as his sumptuous blend called Mernet. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (100% estate Cabernet Sauvignon) screams black currants and blueberries in a full-bodied, fresh, vibrant, high energy style. The color is a deep purple, and the wine possesses brilliant focus, impressive purity and a freshness that belies its power (14.9% alcohol) and concentration. A beauty of elegance and authority, it should drink well for 15-20 years."Wine Advocate 96 points

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Product #28793 (In Stock)
Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011

A sneaky delicious, very food-friendly, Napa Valley classic now and for the next 10+ years.  Very limited

"A solid Spottswoode with mint, currants, berries and flowers. Sweet tobacco and rose petals. Full body with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Tangy, energetic and lively. A wine with form, tension and beauty. This is classic California. 89% cabernet sauvignon, 8% cabernet franc and 3% petit verdot. Better in 2016."  James Suckling 95 points

"Spottswoode's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful, immediate and impeccable in its balance. Spottswoode fans should drink the 2011 relatively early, while some of the more powerful, structured vintages age. I will not be surprised if the 2011 turns out to be one of the jewels of this vintage. The medium-bodied structure argues for early drinking, but there is more than enough energy and acidity to suggest the 2011 will age gracefully for a number of years. Incidentally, the 2011 is the first Spottswoode Cabernet under 14% in a decade."  Antonio Galloni 94 points
