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.

Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30276 (In Stock)
Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Mount Veeder Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

From vines growing at 1,000 to 1,600 feet in altitude along well-drained terraces cut into the steep mountain side. It's a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Syrah fermented in tank and aged in new and used French oak.  You'll find plenty of Napa Cab and Mount Veeder character here - briary blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, crushed herb and tobacco, rich texture, plenty of body, and a finish that just won't quit.  The Mount Veeder tannins are there, for sure, but are silky and ripe and melt away easily. Drink through 2033.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark, sumptuous and inviting, which is to say very much in the style of the year. Super-ripe dark fruit, pencil shavings, spices, leather, savory herbs and menthol power through to the huge finish, where a blast of intense fruit and tannin awaits. Dollops of Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah round out the blend."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Product #30341 (In Stock)
Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013

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."

"Lots of blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors with hints of toasted oak. Full body, round and velvety texture. Fresh finish."  James Suckling 91 points

Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #31221 (In Stock)
Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Just classic, with layers of rich fruit, plenty of spice, and a chewy finish.

"One of the great values in Napa Valley, David Ramey's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is fabulous. The flavors are bold, intense and creamy, with silky tannins, voluptuous energy and tons of pure balance. The 2012 is delicious today, but also has enough depth to drink well for another decade-plus."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"There are 2,800 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. Composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a classic nose of licorice, underbrush, blackcurrants and toast. Medium to full-bodied with supple tannins and a lush, succulent, heady mouthfeel, it can be enjoyed over the next decade."Wine Advocate 91 points

"Well-crafted, offering a mix of dense earth, cedar and dark berry flavors, with crushed rock, graphite, espresso and cigar box nuances. Ends with chewy tannins. Will benefit from some cellaring. Drink now through 2028."Wine Spectator 92 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

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

Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Half-Bottles Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Half-Bottles

Winemaker Philippe Melka is a wizard with texture, and this always marries fine levels of Napa power with super silky, plush, tannins for structure and aging potential.  The 2013 Prop Red shows the classic energy and structure of this great, great, Napa vintage, so try to leave some of this in a cool place until 2019 or so to get everything it has to offer.

"A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. This wine was aged in 85% new Taransaud oak for 19 months prior to bottling of 650 cases. The wine is a beauty, with loads of charcoal, scorched earth, blackcurrants and blackberry fruit present, along with underlying smoky notes. It is dense purple, full-bodied, and rich, with moderate tannin. This wine will benefit from another 4-5 years of cellaring and drink well for another 20-25 years."Wine Advocate 96+ points

"From proprietor Andy Hoxsey, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate displays classic pure cassis and an opaque purple color, in a reserved but exuberant, concentrated, full-bodied style with low acidity and ripe, well-integrated, lush tannins. Drink it over the next 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 91 points

Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30583 (In Stock)

Dennis Cakebread turns out a classic Napa Cabernet with fine fruit and a firm finish.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful crème de cassis fruit, excellent structure on the palate’s backside and represents a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. Aged primarily in French oak, the wine is youthful and young, with the coiled, restrained character of many 2013s, but the concentration is impressive and the purity is there. Beautiful black and blue fruits are obvious, and the wine structured, delineated and vibrant. Reasonably good value as well. Give it another 6-12 months bottle age, and drink it over the following 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 90+ points

"Sizable, tightly woven tannin wraps itself around black fruit with moderate acidity in this thick, tangy wine, which has 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot within the blend. Given less than two years in French oak, 60% of it new, it's an approachable, enjoyable wine that will also age. Drink now through 2021."Wine Enthusiast 91 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

La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mt. 2013 La Jota Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mt. 2013

Unusually approachable for Howell Mt. but with plenty of power and depth. Decant and enjoy with steak or cellar for up to 20 years.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain is the largest cuvée (2,675 cases) and a blend of all five Bordeaux varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It’s a beauty. Opaque purple, with notes of licorice, charcoal, lead-pencil shavings, blackcurrants and spice, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, lavishly rich and pure, with sweet tannin and a long finish. This wine is approachable now, but promises to age beautifully for 20-25 years."Wine Advocate 93 points

The rare Howell Mtn Cab that's delicious young!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is deep, plush and inviting, with a rush of fruit that takes hold of all the senses. Voluptuous and super-expressive, the 2013 is sure to find many fans. Inky blue and purplish fruit, spices, mint and white pepper are all laced together in a sumptuous, inviting wine. Mocha, plum and blueberry jam are some of the notes that grace the supple, open-knit finish. This is an especially accessible Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, but I doubt there will be too many complaints about that."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has an inky purple color to the rim and represents a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Gloriously pure notes of mulberry, graphite, blackberry and blueberry soar from the glass and cascade over the palate. The wine is full-bodied, there is nary a hard edge to be found in this opulent, velvety texture, pure, rich, stunning Cabernet Sauvignon. It finishes impressively, and the wine is capable of lasting 15-20 years, although it’s certainly accessible now."Wine Advocate 93 points

"Though firm and dense, this is charming and agreeable already, with dried dark berry, sage and cedary oak flavors folding together. Appealing suppleness. Drink now through 2028."Wine Spectator 92 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

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Product #31507 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  On release, the wine can be almost overwhelming in its rich, creamy, density but there are plenty of the firm (but very ripe) tannins needed to support long-term aging.

"Zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins leading to a long, powerful and refined aftertaste that keeps reverberating while maintaining a strong personality. Drink now through 2030."Wine Spectator 95 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
