Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010 Product #28944 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010 Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2010

Shirley Roy never meant to make two wines from her 20 or so acre estate in a crook of Napa’s Soda Canyon.  But, winemaker Philippe Melka felt the vineyard spoke with two voices – one aristocratic and intense, the other softer, more plush and mellow.  Prop Red is the second of those voices, a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.  After dropping half her crop in 2010, Shirley was rewarded with this ripe and welcoming red that’s already delicious and sure to improve for years.  A bit of a cross between the black-fruited 2008 and the finer, more detailed, 2009.

“Roy’s 2010 Proprietary Red has a little more delineation and nuance than the 2009. Freshly cut flowers, violets, super ripe dark fruit, mocha, espresso, chocolate, plums, cassis and black currants all jump from the glass in this opulent full-bodied huge wine. Layers of fruit continue to build to the creamy, expressive finish.  Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.”  Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate 92 points

“Bright medium ruby. Aromas of blueberry, coffee, mocha, truffle and chocolate show a slightly porty quality. Fat, smooth and lush in the mouth, offering immediate accessibility. The truffley element carries through on the palate. This nicely rich, layered blend finishes with dusty tannins and good length.”International Wine Cellar 90 points

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
