Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Product #28231 (In Stock)
Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

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.

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.

Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #28468 (In Stock)
Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Bonanno Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Not a lot of history here, with 2004 the Bonnano family's first vintage.  But, there's plenty of classic Napa Valley Cabernet character and class in the bottle.  A blend of Valley floor fruit from Rutherford, Oakville, St. Helena and Oak Knoll aged 20 months in (mostly used) French oak. Very Napa aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, blackberry, crushed herb and cedar with a rich texture and plush, soft, tannins.  A prickle of juicy acidity at the end makes this especially fine with richer meats, but you can certainly just sip it, too.  Nice value.

Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2008 Product #27417 (In Stock)
Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2008 Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2008

Worthy’s Sophia’s Cuvee is the second wine of Axios, a Napa “cult Cabernet” producer best known for its $125 flagship Cab.  It’s been one of our best-selling Napa Cabs ever since its 2001 debut vintage earned 92 points and a place on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list.  Since then, it’s been a super-reliable bottle of Napa Cab with ripe, supple, currant, smoke and green herb flavors and a darkly fruited finish.

Like the silky 2007, this just released 2008 is a joy to drink right now and will get better over the next few years.  Right down the middle Napa Cabernet aromas, flavor, and texture with the class and depth of a $50 wine - at a much, much, better price!

"This has Cabernet Sauvignon-driven flavors of ripe summer blackberries, black currants, cassis liqueur and smoky oak. It’s dry with smooth tannins, and it shows lots of class."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

The 2009 is a bit more muscular than usual, but still shows right down the middle Napa Cabernet aromas and flavors with good blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, a dash of cassis, and accents of smoky, chocolatey, oak.  Decant it for a bit to let the tannins relax or just pair it with grilled steak.

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.

Perata Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2007 Perata Vineyards Cabernet Napa 2007

Truth be told, we don't know anything about this producer, but we do know that this is a fine example of mid-Valley Napa Cab from the warm, exciting, 2007 harvest.  Brimming with black currant, cherry, and blackberry fruit with accents of cream, chocolate and spice, this is mouthfilling and rich all the way through the cocoa dust and cassis-laced finish.  The oak works well with the rich fruit here and there's plenty of structure and amplitude to handle dry-aged beef!

Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet 2012 Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet 2012

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!

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.

"The mineral, blueberry and pine-needle character is cool here. Bark. Full body but reserved and balanced, with fine tannins and a chocolate, berry and blueberry character. Extremely well done for the vintage, with style and panache. I like this better than the 2010 for its reserve and form. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points

Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2011

Ho hum - 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.

As you'd expect, the 2011 edition of this Napa classic is a touch more elegant and perfumed than 2010, with classic aromas of dried cherry, redcurrant, licorice, dried flowers and mint.  A middle-weight Cab this vintage, but with lovely floral-accented fruit and spice and soft, silky, tannins.  Ready to enjoy right now with lean beef (think filet) or lamb loin chops or just to sip by itself.

Elyse Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008 Product #28273 (In Stock)
Elyse  Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008 Elyse  Cabernet Morisoli Vnyd Napa Valley 2008

What a treat - a late-released Napa Cab from the outstanding 2008 vintage to enjoy right now!

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Morisoli Vineyard is a beautiful, if somewhat inward wine graced with exquisite finesse. Freshly cut flowers, mint, blackberries and cassis are some of the nuances that emerge from this delineated, finessed Cabernet Sauvignon. Today the wine is a bit tight, but it should soften with another year or so in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020."Wine Advocate 92 points

Relic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Product #27917 (In Stock)
Relic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Relic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

While this may or may not end up matching the Artefact Cabernet’s 93 point ratings, I think it’s an even better bottle for near-term drinking, especially with rich, buttery, meats like beef filet, pork tenderloin or lamb loin chops.  It’s a blend of blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvingnon, 12% Malbec and just 3% Cabernet Franc grown on the steeply sloped Stagecoach Vineyard – one of Napa’s best.  

Dark, deep, black in color and just as densely textured and flavored but with remarkable elegance and grace, too.  The aromas show off generous blackberry, dark cherry, chocolate and sage notes with accents of black olive and bay leaf.  In the mouth, it’s lush and soft but nicely focused with intense flavors of black berry, currant, and plum fruit, melted chocolate, dark spice, and a bit of Bordeaux-like tobacco and herb.  The finish is long and easy, with the plush tannins nicely cloaked in ripe fruit and more chocolate and just a touch of herb.  Mike calls it "Bordeaux on steroids," which seems about right to us!  Drink it now with rich foods or cellar for 5-10 years for even more sophistication.

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

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

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

This full-bodied, velvety textured, delicious 2011 is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a terrific success for the vintage."Wine Advocate 95 points
