Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010 Product #29211 (In Stock)
Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010 Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010

Wine Enthusiast had this pegged as a $38 wine, and certainly it has that level of effort and expense behind it.  The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit came from some of the best sites in Mendoza, all grown without fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides.  The hand harvested fruit is sorted in the vineyard and then again on a modern sorting table in the winery before fermenting in tank with all natural yeast (no cultured yeast added).  The wine then rests and mellows for 15 months in small French oak barrels, including 30% second use and a whopping 70% new - a luxury that makes sense for a $30+ wine but is very rare in the under $20 space.  Then, perhaps the biggest luxury of all, it got another two years development in bottle to let the youthful Cabernet structure resolve and the rich, dark, fruit come to the fore.

“Layered berry and cassis aromas are a bit scratchy and gritty. This Cabernet feels saturated, pure and deep; flavors of blackberry, cassis, prune and chocolate are ripe and generous, while the finish is mildly herbal in flavor, with good length and build. Drink through 2018.” Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010 Product #28368 (In Stock)
Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010 Basel Cellars Claret Walla Walla 2010

Plenty of ripeness from this Washington State Bordeaux blend, but also a sense of freshness and clarity to the fruit and spice flavors to go along with overt oak barrel notes.  A classic Washington state blend of Cabernet sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet franc, with a dash of Syrah..  It's full-bodied, ripe and delicious, with flavors of briary blackberries and plums - great for beef or lamb on the grill.

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 2010 Product #29241 (In Stock)
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.

Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010 Product #28781 (In Stock)
Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010 Mount Eden Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2010

"Often the most overlooked wine in the Mount Eden range, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon shows the pedigree of this great vintage. Firm veins of tannin support a core of black fruit, tar, grilled herbs, smoke and incense in a wild, savory mountain Cabernet Sauvignon that dazzles with its exceptional overall balance and personality. This is another fabulous new release from Mount Eden."  Antonio Galloni 94+ points

"Most of the fruit for this restrained, savory cabernet comes from cuttings Emmett Rixford purportedly sourced from Château Margaux in the 1890s. Martin Ray propagated his own cuttings from that selection to plant in this vineyard’s shallow, shale-laced soils at 1,800 feet of elevation in the 1940s and 50s, and later Jeffrey Patterson replanted it in the 1980s with a selection from those vines. Is it just a coincidence that, tasting this blind, my thoughts turned to a 1985 Margaux I tasted recently? Maybe it was the gentle elasticity of the texture, the vibrant acidity, the rosy glow streaming through a curtain of ripe, earthy tannins. This feels layered with complexity: Beyond the pure cassis tone you might find lavender, graphite, redwood bark, black olive and green herbs. But you don’t need to go fishing for descriptors to appreciate its nuances: just think of it as lovely, integrated, old-school California cabernet. Buy a case and try not to drink most of it until 2030. (1,505 cases)"Wine & Spirits 96 points

Ladera Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Howell Mountain 2010 Product #29591 (In Stock)

All the power and intensity you expect from Howell Mountain but without heaviness are hard edges - the rare Howell Mountain Cab that's delicious young!  From vineyards at 1,600-1,800 feet elevation, comfortably above the fog line, this 100% Cabernet delivers generous aromas for ripe blackberry, black cherry, currant, cocoa and mint.  It's rich and velvety in the mouth, with plush black fruit and spice flavors supported by surprisingly fine-grained, supple, tannins. You can certainly cellar this for 10 years, but it's delicious now with grilled beef or lamb.

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.

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
