Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll 2012 Product #29964 (In Stock)
Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll 2012 Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Oak Knoll 2012

Pure and elegant with a long, vital, finish.

"This vintage of Trefethen's estate Cabernet is a stunning example of the winery's prowess over the past four decades. It has everything, and everything is in balance, making it a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon of uncommon harmony. On the nose this vintage exhibits aromas of ripe cassis and wood-spice. On the palate it is seamless and inviting, with layers of rich dark fruits, silky tannins and a lasting finish."WRO 96 points

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

Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2012 Product #29967 (In Stock)
Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2012 Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2012

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford shows a black cherry and kirsch-like component often seen in top Rutherford Cabernets, with an almost Margaux-like delicacy and a dense ruby/purple color. It has a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, sweet tannins, beautiful purity and texture and incremental richness that builds gently and graciously. This is a gorgeous 2012 to drink over the next 10-15 years."Wine Advocate 93 points

"This delivers a pure, bright, supple core of wild berry, raspberry and blackberry that is intense, focused, dense and persistent. The flavors cascade on the finish, echoing mineral and crushed rock details."Wine Spectator 92 points

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Product #30758 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

The husband-and-wife team of Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams crafted their 421 case 2013 Cabernet from four outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.  Anomaly in St. Helena gives richness, Farella in Coombsville freshness, Sleeping Lady in Yountville structure, and Moulds in the Oak Knoll hills grip and complexity.  This is the richest, most deeply fruited and velvety textured Zeitgeist Cabernet yet – it will fill up your mouth and coat your palate with Napa’s best! – but no loss of the balance and poise that keeps this fresh and fascinating glass after glass.  A brief decant is all it needs to delight right now, although feel free to lay this down for 15+ years if that’s your thing.

"The fresh sage, blackberry and sweet black tobacco aromas and flavors are compelling. Full body, yet shows form and tension. Fresh and delicious finish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 94 points

"Good dark ruby. Captivating floral lift to the aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and graphite minerality, with complementary sweet oak nuances. Sweet, dense, supple and deep, with dark berry and spice flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity and accented by piquant pepper and herb notes. Finishes juicy and long, with firm-edge tannins and lovely floral lift. Very well done."  Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points

"There are 421 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa from the same four sites used for the 2012. This wine is coiled tightly and displays higher tannin as well as higher extract and richness. It has an inky purple color and beautiful, dense blackberry and cassis flavors along with hints of licorice, forest floor and earth. Some background oak also makes an appearance."Wine Advocate 93+ points

Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2013 Product #31076 (In Stock)
Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2013 Turnbull Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2013

The real deal in Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and a bargain to boot compared to 2013 Napa Cabs of similar quality and power.  This is a big, rich, even chewy, wine right now, although there's so much intensity to the fruit that you might miss the mass of ripe tannin.  Decant and serve with ribeye steak or lamb chops right now and be sure to hold some for as long as you can to enjoy the elegance and layered complexity to come.

"Turnbull's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, their least expensive wine in the portfolio is the most forward and precocious of the cuvées and shows what great winemaking and vineyard sources the Turnbulls are dealing with. The color is opaque purple, the wine shows slightly less tannins than its counterparts, with gorgeously intense blueberry and blackberry fruit, cedar wood, forest floor and spice box. It's full-bodied, opulent, rich and, while still young with a good 10 years of upside, this wine will still be drinking great 20 years from now."Wine Advocate 95 points

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 Product #29711 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

The first time I tasted Zeitgeist Cabernet (the 2011 we offered last year), I noticed clear lines of connection to Aurajo’s Altegracia Cabernet from Calistoga and Spottswoode’s Cabernet from St. Helena.  And, since co-winemaker Jennifer Williams worked harvest at Aurajo and was head winemaker at Spottswoode from 2006-2011, I suppose that’s not surprising.  What is surprising is that you can cellar and drink a bottle of Napa Cabernet with this much lush fruit and suave, sophisticated, texture for under $75 compared to the $100-$200 those other wines command! Just 400 cases made.

"This is very intense and beautiful with spice, nutmeg and berry character. Full body, firm tannins and flavorful finish."  James Suckling 92 points

"Zeitgeist Cellars’ 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa comes from four sources, ranging from the northern St. Helena AVA to Coombsville and Yountville. There are 401 cases of this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. An elegant Napa Cab befitting its southern sources of fruit, it offers an almost Margaux-like floral fragrance, an interesting mix of red and black fruits, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and relatively low acidity. The wine is lush, heady and best drunk over the next 10-15 years."Wine Advocate 91 points
