Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #29025 (In Stock)
Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Mike Hirby picked a great time to gain access to Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Napa’s most exciting sites – the Kenefick Ranch in Calistoga.  A great Calistoga site like this - across the road from Frediani and Araujo’s world-famous Eisele Vineyard – was the key to making good wine. Blending in juice from Oakville and adding dashes of Merlot and Cabernet Franc for plushness and aroma allowed Mike to make one of the very best 2011 Napa Cabernets we’ve tasted at any price point.

It takes a little time in the glass or a vigorous swirl to coax the aromas out of this very young Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, but then you'll be rewarded with very pure, deep, scents of red currant, black cherry, coffee, dark chocolate, spicebox and crushed herb. It's a big wine in the mouth, with rich, powerful, Napa Cab flavors of currant, blackberry, mocha, vanilla, spice, cedar, violet and more.  The powerful flavors and rich texture are nicely balanced by fine-grained tannins and juicy acids, making this an outstanding match for grilled or roasted meat today and an even better candidate for improvement in cellar over the next decade plus. This is a very winning bottle of Cabernet that frankly outperforms most of the $100+ 2011s we've tasted to date. An exciting, delicious, and deeply satisfying bottle of Napa Cab.

Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2009 Product #27730 (In Stock)
Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2009 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2009

America's steakhouse favorite!  "Berry and floral aromatics and a lovely structure. It has a dark, ruby color and a vibrant nose of black cherry, wisteria and sweet baking spices. On the palate, the wine is elegant and expressive and echoes the berry, floral and spice notes from the nose. It has a classic structure of fine grained tannins and a long, layered finish."  Winery Notes

Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Product #27892 (In Stock)
Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Rock solid performance here in the tricky 2010 harvest.

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa represents an attractive blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. This fruity, still grapy 2010 is nicely concentrated with lots of cassis and plum notes. Medium to full-bodied, pure, juicy, sexy and alluring, it will clearly age for 15 or more years despite its early appeal."Wine Advocate 90 points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #27324 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

As always, delicious right now and sure to improve over the next few years.

"Although tasty, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is slightly less intense and powerful compared to the 2010. It reveals supple tannins, abundant black fruit and spice notes, and an easy-drinking yet seriously endowed, medium to full-bodied personality. Drink it over the next decade.

Though the Wagner family is not quite the pioneer that Louis Martini, Charles Krug, Beaulieu Private Reserve, Ridge Vineyards and a few others are, they have long farmed and made the wines at Caymus Vineyards."Wine Advocate 90 points

"A fleshy, showy youngster, putting ripe fruit and jazzy oak on display. An impressive 2011 that reverberates with ripe cherry, plum and currant notes that will be at their most appealing early on, as this veers toward dryer tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 92 points

O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mtn. 2011 Product #28825 (In Stock)
O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mtn. 2011 O'Shaughnessy Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mtn. 2011

This is serious, mountainside, Cabernet and even in 2011 it has a cut and depth you won't find on the Valley floor.  Robert Parker has called this "one of my favorite under-the-radar Napa estates."

"O'Shaughnessy's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is beautiful. The tannins are remarkably polished and sophisticated for a Howell Mountain Cabernet. Sweet red berries, tobacco, licorice and cedar are all woven into a silky, refined finish. There is plenty of Howell Mountain salinity in the glass, but not quite the power and energy that are typical of this wine."  Antonio Galloni 92 points

"Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, creosote and new oak, lifted by a violet topnote. Spicy and penetrating, with peppery acidity giving shape and grip to the flavors of dark berries, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and pine resin. Nicely ripe, savory wine with slightly dry tannins that call for a few years of patience." International Wine Cellar 91(+?) points

Michael Honig, his family, and long-time winemaker Kristin Belair turn out some of the best, most consistent, Napa Valley Cabernet year after year.  The care taken in sustainable farming and hands-on winemaking shows in this rich, spicy, Cabernet with plenty of dark berry, spice and cedar notes.  Accents of anise, licorice and dark chocolate add even more complexity.  A fine wine and fine value.

Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vyd Napa 2010 Product #28210 (In Stock)
Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vyd Napa 2010 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Bartolucci Vyd Napa 2010

A big, rich, and nicely dense Valley-floor Cabernet that's already showing wonderfully with steak and will grow for a decade. Unlike the "regular" Cab, this ages in all French oak.

"Pure, clean, enticing aromas of plum, cherry and wild berry are silky in texture, graceful and light, leading to a host of flavors, textures and extra facets. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 92 points
