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!

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.

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.

Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009 Product #28624 (In Stock)
Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009 Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2009

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.

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.

Laurel Glen Counterpoint Cabernet 2012 Product #28496 (In Stock)
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!

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.

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

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

Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

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.

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

Wine Arrives Wednesday, August 27 - Reserve Yours Now!

We all like to show at our best for a big event – like, for example, a 40th Anniversary!  And Chuck Wagner and his family have certainly succeeded in putting their best foot forward (and best wine in the bottle) for the 40th release of the benchmark Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa.  Always a classic, classy, Napa Cabernet, Chuck took full advantage of the fantastic 2012 growing season to capture all the black fruit and power you hope for in top-notch Napa Cab – and took advantage of the big harvest to let us bring this to you at a very, very, attractive price!

The wine is dead young right now, but already bursting with aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, blackcurrant, sweet plum, dark chocolate, and spicy, smoky, oak.  It’s a big, mouth filling wine, that pumps out intense flavors from first contact through the long, lush, sweetly fruited finish where fine-grained tannins provide just the right support for big foods.  At this young age, it needs time in decanter and to be paired with intensely flavored foods – think smoked prime rib or spice-rubbed steak.  If you can wait, the baby-fat will begin to drop away and deliver more nuanced aromas and flavors and a more classically muscular California Cab structure.  But, don’t wait to grab a case (or two, or three!) now while you can at the lowest price we’ve ever offered on this Napa Valley legend.

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 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.

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

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
