Foxen Cabernet Sauvignon Vogelzang Vnyd 2011 Product #28546 (In Stock)
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.

Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Product #28893 (In Stock)
Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Hall Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011

These guys seem to really shine in "difficult" vintages.  Balanced, luscious, delicious.

"The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, rich and voluptuous. Mocha, espresso, plum, black cherry and intense spices all meld together in a textured, layered wine loaded with class and personality. As always, the Hall Cabernets are forward, fruit-driven and super-rich. This is a great introduction to the house style."  Antonio Galloni 90 points

"This is fairly rich and concentrated, with excellent depth, exhibiting a range of flavors built around dark berry, mocha, espresso, cedar and tobacco notes, with ripe, interwoven tannins. Turns graceful midpalate, ending with a persistent finish. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 92 points

Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2012 Product #29503 (In Stock)
Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2012 Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2012

Another fine vintage for this stylish Napa classic.

"Bright red-ruby. At once riper and more medicinal on the nose than the 2011, offering aromas of plum syrup, blueberry and spices. Firm and nicely refined, with an attractive juicy quality to the black fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with rather suave tannins. This cuvee seems to be better than ever, as Bo Barrett has done a good job of leavening the concentrated, black mountain fruit with the softer tannins of cabernet from the valley floor."  Vinous (Steve Tanzer) 89-90 points

Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28760 (In Stock)
Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Another fine release of Paul Hobb's CrossBarn Cab is here! Fruit from several different Napa vineyards gets a nice French oak treatment here, delivering lush aromas and flavors of black currant, black cherry, mocha, fresh herb and spice.  Plenty of tannin hiding down under the lush fruit to pair with robust foods, but it's soft and mouthfilling enough to just drink.

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011 Product #29040 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Zeitgeist founder Mark Porembski and his wife/co-winemaker Jennifer Williams know how to make great Cabernet - Jennifer made Spottswoode's Wine Spectator Top 100, 96 point, 2009 and Wine Advocate 100 point 2010 Spottswoode Cabernets.  In 2011 at Zeitgeist, they used 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged it for 12 months in top-quality French oak (80% new), and then picked just the best barrels to make 379 cases of this delicious red.

Big aromas of blackcurrant, cherry, blackberry, shaved cedar, tobacco, and spice with accents of dark chocolate and violets coming out with air.  On the palate, there’s plenty of ripeness (a fine 14.2% abv) to the lush and juicy blackcurrant, berry, candied violet, and earthy chocolate flavors that fan out with cedar, spice, crushed herb and black cherry accents.  For all the ripe, intense, fruit, this is a focused, pure, and poised – somewhat in the style of Araujo Altagracia or Spottswoode itself – and finishes with fine-grained tannins and mouthwatering, food-friendly, acidity.  Great right now with a 90 minute decant and a steak and sure to improve for 10+ years. It's very much in the mold of $100-$200 "cult" or "garage" wines, just at a fraction of the price.

Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010 Product #28781 (In Stock)
Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010 Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010

"Often the most overlooked wine in the Mount Eden range, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the pedigree of this great vintage. Firm veins of tannin support a core of black fruit, tar, grilled herbs, smoke and incense in a wild, savory mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that dazzles with its exceptional overall balance and personality. This is another fabulous new release from Mount Eden."  Antonio Galloni 94+ points

"Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard’s shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines. Is it just a coincidence that, tasting this blind, my thoughts turned to a 1985 Margaux I tasted recently? Maybe it was the gentle elasticity of the texture, the vibrant acidity, the rosy glow streaming through a curtain of ripe, earthy tannins. This feels layered with complexity: Beyond the pure cassis tone you might find lavender, graphite, redwood bark, black olive and green herbs. But you don’t need to go fishing for descriptors to appreciate its nuances: just think of it as lovely, integrated, old-school California cabernet. Buy a case and try not to drink most of it until 2030. (1,505 cases)"Wine & Spirits 96 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.
