Oakville Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #29963 (In Stock)
Oakville Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Oakville Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

From the old BV #7 vineyard in Oakville (now called Pelissa), this 93% Cab Sauv with Petite Verdot and Malbec sings out with supple, rich, Oakville character.

"Soft and juicy, this is a classically crafted wine, medium bodied with savory notes of cedar, dried herb and black olive. Structured and balanced, it finishes rich and refreshing, with a memory of red currant and cherry." Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Taplin Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Terra 9 2009 Product #29016 (In Stock)
Taplin Cellars Cabernet  Sauvignon Terra 9 2009 Taplin Cellars Cabernet  Sauvignon Terra 9 2009

Taplin family members have grown wine grapes in Napa Valley for five generations, and now siblings Melinda, Bill, and Stephen (who lives here in the DC area) are making their own wine.  The Terra 9 wine is named for ancestor John Lewelling's comments about the St. Helena soil:  9 parts rock to 1 part dirt!  Of course, that's just about perfect for ripening pure, intense, Cabernet Sauvignon like you'll find in the bottle here.  Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry, crushed herb and spice lead to a focused palate of dark berries and plums dusted with cocoa, spice and herb.  The finish is firm enough to handle a ribeye, but supple enough to enjoy with lighter foods or even on its own.  An excellent value in handmade Napa Cabernet that's ready to drink now.

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

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 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!

From first pour, you’ll find generous Napa Cab aromas of black currant, blackberry, black raspberry chocolate, and sweet spice.  The flavors follow, coating your palate with dark, chocolaty, fruit and layers of spice, mocha, and black licorice and more.  Dense, deep, and wonderfully supple, the wine retains a precise focus across the midpalate and on through the juicy, long, finish where black fruit, chocolate, cedar, and a hint of pepper and herb linger on and on over round, ripe, tannins.  You can certainly enjoy this right now with a nice steak (or even on its own!), but it would be a shame not to put a few bottles down to enjoy the complexity that will emerge over the next decade-plus. Just 400 cases made.
