Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #30560 (In Stock)
Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Mainly Oak Knoll and Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon with 4% each Petit Verdot and Cab Franc plus 2% Malbec for extra aroma. Loads of black currant, dark cherry, and black plum fruit with lush notes of bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, and spice.  You'll get a touch of herb and violet with air and on the velvety smooth finish where the fruit cloakes the fine tannin completely.  A lot of wine for the money.

A great vintage for this classic Napa Cab.  As the winery says, "Fruit comes from both our sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford and from local Napa Valley vineyards. A big Cabernet with balance and finesse, with character of black fruit, baking spices, black cherry, lavender, toasted coriander, and anise, layered with toasty oak.  The finish is long, with just the right amount of tannin."

Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012

Another winner from Napa's hugely successful 2012 harvest, this 95% Cabernet aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.  It's a stylish Napa Cabernet, with loads of redcurrant, berry, and currant fruit accented by notes of coffee, chocolate, cedar, and tobacco.  Delicious from first sip, this gains length and depth with air, with more coffee/mocha notes emerging over the fine-grained tannins.  Tastes like a $50+ bottle and ready now with steak and lamb.

Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013 Product #30317 (In Stock)
Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013 Fisher Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Unity 2013

Fisher specializes in marrying the rich fruit and power of Napa Valley to the more supple, round, character of Sonoma County Cabernet - "Unity."  The 2013 is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon plus 12% Malbec and dollops of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot from Napa and the Mayacamus Mountains.  It's a rich and sweetly fruited wine with plenty of intensity to the red and black currant fruit with accents of smoke, coffee, and spice.  Supple and easy to drink, but with enough structure for steak.  A classy, delicious, Cab.

Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30884 (In Stock)
Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

After struggling for much of the early 2000s, Flora Springs looks to have returned to good form in the past few vintages.  The style here is “focused Napa” – plenty of ripeness channeled by solid acid and tannic structure.  Loads of dark currant, coffee, chocolate and oaky spice on the nose are followed by ripe black currant fruit lifted by tangy acids and accented by bitter chocolate and coffee ground notes.  The dusty tannins are bold enough to shine with grilled steak, but this is soft enough to just drink alone as well.  Rock-solid Napa Cab.

Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Synthesis 2013 Product #30808 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Synthesis 2013 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Synthesis 2013

This is Martin Ray’s top wine, and it’s certainly the top value we’ve seen from Napa’s great 2012 harvest to date.  It’s a blend of 100% estate fruit, including 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot, both from Diamond Mountain and Rutherford. 18 months in 60% new French oak rounds off the edges and adds a layer of spice and just a hint of vanilla and chocolate complexity.  Decant and drink now with steak or lamb or cellar for up to 10+ years.

"Aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries with hints of walnuts. Full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Firm tannins makes this stylish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points

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

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

Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Product #28442 (In Stock)
Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Relic Artefact Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

The last wine Mike Hirby releases from each vintage, and the most impressive Artefact Cabernet to date.  The wine’s backbone is fruit from the tiny (3 acre) Corona Vineyard in the hills just west of Oakville.  Mike describes the site as “a moonscape, with tiny shale pebbles going who-knows how deep.”  The poor soils and small berries here give a wine of fantastic intensity and power.  You’ll find deep aromas of crushed blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate, and sweet spices and flavors to match.  There’s plenty of structure to support the lush fruit, and while you probably should hold this for 3-5 years, it’s hard to resist right now with a rare steak!

“78% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cabernet franc and 8% malbec): Aromas of cassis, briary blackberry and bitter chocolate, lifted by a violet topnote. Large-scaled, chewy, mountain-style wine (it's from the Corona vineyard at the top of the Oakville Grade), with a medicinal quality to its flavors of black cherry, blackberry and licorice. This youthfully musclebound cabernet finishes with substantial tannins and very good energy. Serve it with a rare steak now or, better yet, hold it for five years for more complexity. These small, thick-skinned berries ripen late, notes winemaker Mike Hirby.”International Wine Cellar 92(+?) points

Another great release of this Napa Cabernet classic.

"Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and cracked pepper. Some dried flowers. Full-bodied, firm and very structured with chewy yet polished tannins and a long, long finish. Vivd and gorgeous. Lots of lemon rind. Beautiful now. Built for aging. Better in 2020." James Suckling 95 points

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. This is always a beautifully elegant wine from Shafer, and the 2013 is no exception. Blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with crushed rock and spring flowers are present in this medium-bodied, stylish and elegant wine. Tannins are soft, the wine pure and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 94 points

Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Give this 3-4 years and then watch out!

"A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010 Product #30516 (In Stock)
Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010 Mayacamas Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2010

A great release from this legendary Napa estate perched high atop Mount Veeder.  After 44 years, including the 1971’s appearance in the famous Judgement of Paris tasting in 1976, this is owner/winemaker Bob Travers’ final vintage as former Screaming Eagle winemaker Andy Erickson takes over.  If you’ve ever wondered what the greatest Napa Cabernets of the 1960s and 1970s tasted like young, the answer is “this.”  From dry-farmed vineyards at the top of Mount Veeder, picked early at high acidity and low sugar (just 13.25% abv), and aged 2 years in larger barrels, 1 year in barrique, and 1 year more in bottle, this is the essence of elegance.  Fun to taste now, but really wants 5 years more in cellar and will last a long, long, time.

"Graphite, smoke, licorice, game, savory herbs and a host of inky blue/blackish stone fruits make an appearance in the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautifully layered and intense, the 2010 offers a compelling interplay of finesse and power. Still, my sense is that the 2010 is holding back much of its potential. Readers need to be patient, but the 2010 is shaping up to be a gem."  Vinous (Galloni) 95+ points

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

Relic Cabernet Sauvignon Artefact 2012 Relic Cabernet Sauvignon Artefact 2012

343 cases made; 5 available.  Always Mike Hirby's top wine, the 2012 Artefact Cabernet is simply stunning in 2012.  It's a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot from three great vineyards.  About 75% of the fruit comes from Kenefick Ranch, just next door to Araujo's famous Eisele vineyard in Calistoga. The remainder of the Cabernet comes from Corona Vineyard in Oakville, adding structure and minerality to Kefefick's plush fruit.  Finally, the Petit Verdot is from the legendary Stagecoach Vineyard overlooking Soda Canyon.  Rich, powerful, complex, and very limited.

“An outstanding wine is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Artefact, which comes primarily from the Kenefick Ranch in Northern Napa. Dense blueberry and blackberry fruit mixed with camphor, charcoal embers and spice box are all present in this long, deep, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that is supple enough to be drunk now, or cellared for 10 or 15 years.”Wine Advocate 94 points

Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery.  A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!

"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #30054 (In Stock)
Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

I’ve sampled this twice now – once pre-release at the winery in late 2014 and again with Lindy Novak here at the store in June – and it’s nothing short of breathtaking.  Parker has compared Spottswoode with Margaux in the past and with Pauillac for this release, and there is definitely something Bordeaux-like here.  But the intensity of fruit and supple, rich, tannins are distinctly Napa.

"Incredible blueberries, blackberries, black walnuts, minerals, black licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, very tight and structured with hints of hazlenuts, fine chocolate and hints of minerals and spices. A solid and classic-styled Napa Valley cab. Layered and very fine."  James Suckling 98 points

"The opaque purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a glorious bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, a Pauillac-like lead pencil note, and background new oak. The overall impression is one of restraint combined with richness. This full-bodied effort possesses good acidity and ripe tannin. It has been crafted for the long-term. The hallmarks of great Spottswoode wines are their purity and elegance combined with serious power. The 2012 has that in abundance. This youthful, reserved Cabernet will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades or more."Wine Advocate 96+ points
