Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #28655 (In Stock)
Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Another solid vintage for what must be one of Napa's most consistent "top value" Cabernet Sauvignon's.  Sappy, fruit-forward, aromas of currant, cherry and blackberry lead to a soft, supple, mouthful of plum, currant and dark berry fruit with accents of cedar, fresh herb, and spice.  The plush velvet tannins give support but don't get in the way of enjoying this easygoing Napa red.

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28698 (In Stock)
Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

We don't see this nearly often enough - a super-star winemaker who could easily fill his days (and pocketbook) doing just his own wines and consulting for a few high-end boutiques rolling up his sleeves, digging in, and making California wine you can afford to drink every day.  The winemaker is Aaron Pott - Food & Wine Magazine's Winemaker of the Year in 2012 - and his partner is former sommelier Joseph Carr.  Together, Aaron and Joseph are creating a line of fresh and food-friendly wines with plenty of Napa Character and style – but at an eye-opening value price.

You’ll get good sense of why everyone is so excited about Napa’s 2012 Cabernets here, starting with the sweet and savory aromas of cherry, currant, bitter chocolate, roasted meat, and crushed mint.  The flavors follow the nose at first, but with air gain breadth and creaminess, coating your palate with layers of crushed blackberry, cassis, roasted meat, and rich chocolate.  Delicious stuff, but it’s the elegant structure, perfect balance, and sophisticated tannins lying underneath the long finish that are really exciting in a wine at this price.  A “real deal, real steal” bottle of Napa Cabernet you should not miss!

Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #27952 (In Stock)
Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Educated Guess Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The best vintage yet for this consistent winner in the "value Napa Cab" category.  It doesn't hurt that 95% of the fruit is from prime Rutherford and St. Helena vineyards or that the gutsy Cabernet gets a complexity boost from 6% Merlot and dashes of Cab Franc and Petit Verdot. You'll find loads of black fruit (blackberry, currant, and cherry) framed by notes of spice box, chocolate, and crushed mint.  It's soft and supple and mouthfilling and the fruit gushes right on through the spicy chocolate and herb finish.  There's a touch of something like Rutherford dust at the end, just enough to stand up to a steak but not so much to interfere with everyday sipping.

Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Product #29469 (In Stock)
Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Ca' Momi Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

If you thought the 90 point 2012 was good, the 2013 will blow you away!  Loads of rich, dark, fruit - plum, Bing cherry, raspberry and currant - are framed by sweet and savory wood notes of vanilla, chocolate, and spice.  Plenty of plush, smooth, Napa character here with classic Cabernet accents of dried herb and smoke.  Finishes rich and very smooth with black fruit, spice, and chocolate notes pumping on through a long, generous, finish. A lot of Napa Cabernet delight for the money!

Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28433 (In Stock)
Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Twenty Rows was founded to bring you “Napa Valley Wines You Can Drink Every Day” and, while the whole line-up is impressive, the benchmark Napa Cab remains the standout.  A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon softened with 10% Merlot, one taste and you’ll see that Twenty Rows is a big step up from even very good $20 California Cabs - in fact, it competes nicely with many $30-$40 Napa reds.

The 2012 is the best we've tasted here, with a new level of richness and depth to the black currant/cherry fruit and accents of cocoa and roasted coffee.  Still dense and rich, but with more lift and earthy complexity and a nice dark chocolate note on the smooth finish.  Drinking well now and sure to improve over 3-4 years.

Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012 Product #28873 (In Stock)
Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012 Chappellet Mountain Cuvee (Cabernet Blend) 2012

Founded in 1967, Chappellet quickly established itself as one of Napa’s premier Cabernet estates and the very first to prove the quality of what is now often called Napa’s Grand Cru:  Pritchard Hill.  The Pritchard Hill Cabernets are still some of Napa’s best and can age for decades – the 1969 is legendary and reportedly still fresh and vibrant today.  But, they also usually need years of cellar time before showing well, and Donn and Molly Chappellet wanted fans to have something to drink tonight.

Mountain Cuvee was created to provide immediate satisfaction and delight, and the 2012 edition does that and more.  A blend of  Cabernet Sauvignon (39%) and Merlot (35%) with 12% Malbec and smaller helpings of Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah, it ages in new and used French oak and comes out of the winery ready to enjoy.  The 2012 is a big, rich, wine with layers of currant, black cherry, blackberry, plum, cedar, smoke, and fresh herb aromas and flavors.  The texture is plush and velvety, with the ripe fruit largely hiding the ripe tannins that provide support for enjoying with food or time in cellar.  For all its size and depth, there’s nothing heavy or thick about this classic Napa Bordeaux blend, and it finishes long and fresh with just the right squirt of acidity.  A classy, well-made, Napa red you can enjoy right now at very attractive savings.

Hoopla Cabernet Napa The Mutt 2012 Product #29270 (In Stock)
Hoopla Cabernet Napa The Mutt 2012 Hoopla Cabernet Napa The Mutt 2012

A big, rich, Cabernet from dog-lover Spencer Hoopes made from lots not used in his estate wines - the odds and ends that make up this "Mutt!"  Nothing second rate about it in 2012, though, with 100% Napa fruit getting 18 months in new and second use French oak.  Loads of ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit with accents of eucolyptus, chocolate, and baking spice. Firm tannins give the rich palate support and make this a fine steakhouse red.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Hands Of Time Cabernet 2011 Product #28111 (In Stock)
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Hands Of Time Cabernet 2011 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Hands Of Time Cabernet 2011

Hands of Time is Stag's Leap's celebration of all the great winemakers who have worked there since the estate burst to fame by winning the "Judgement of Paris" for it's top Cabernet. A blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, (with a hint of Syrah & Malbec), it delivers fresh blueberry and dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit with accents of chocolate and coffee.  A soft, lingering, finish makes this a fine choice for sipping but there's enough stuffing here to handle grilled meat, too.

Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2010 Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2010

The newest vintage of this old favorite departs from tradition a bit - it's 100% Cabernet Sauvignon for the first time - but still delivers super-premium Napa Cab experience at a very reasonable price. A bit more structured than in some vintages, this retains a solid core of blackberry, black cherry, and currant fruit framed by notes of oak spice and tobacco.  Give it a decant and enjoy with grilled beef or lamb.

The 2011 edition of Laurel Glen's "drink young" Cabernet rated 95 points in W&S - in the great 2012 vintage, it's better still.  Focused, powerful, aromas of black currant, cherry, chocolate, spice and vanilla lead to a lush mouthful of cassis, blackberry, tobacco, and spice.  The oak is well integrated and adds structure to the deep, palate-coating, flavors.  Chocolate, spice, and black currant flavors pump on through the firm, muscular, finish.  A very fine 2012 Napa Cabernet!

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

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

Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010 Product #28771 (In Stock)
Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010 Keenan Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010

Keenan's blend of Spring Mtn. fruit for power and nuance and Pope Valley grapes for lusciousness. Delicious now and - 2020.

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with an exciting melange of black cherries, incense, tobacco, mocha, graphite and dried flowers. Deceptively medium in body, the 2010 possesses gorgeous aromatics and tons of pure nuance, all in an understated style I find highly appealing. Today, the wine is a bit compact, but it should grow nicely with further time in bottle. The 2010 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 61% from Spring Mountain and 39% from Pope Valley. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."Wine Advocate 91+ points

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.

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.

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.

A classic Oakville Cabernet from a site near Yountville with deep gravel soils that always gives concentrated, plush, wines.  In 2010, you'll find black cherry and currant fruit with briary notes of crushed herb and wood spice on the nose.  Rich and deeply flavored, the fruit here is framed by spicy, chocolaty, oak and supported by firm, ripe, tannins. A big wine, but not harsh or hard.
