Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Product #31458 (In Stock)
Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014

Our first thought on tasting this robust blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah was, "Wow - this tastes like a pretty darn good $25 red blend."  At better than 20% under that, it's better still!  Delivers a bold  mouthful of dark berry and black cherry fruit framed in generous French oak flavors (vanilla, chocolate, spice) and a smooth, rich, finish.  Perfect with roasts and steaks or just to sip.

A really delicious Chardonnay from Cabernet Sauvignon country - Yountville, in the heart of Napa Valley.  Picked at the perfect balance of ripe fruit and juicy acids, this opens with pretty aromas of pear, apple and a touch of citrus zest.  With just a touch of oak, the texture is fresh and pretty, too, with flavors of apple and peach and just a touch of hazelnut and spice on the clean, crisp, finish.

Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 Product #32398 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015

FALL FESTIVAL MIX/MATCH 2CS $18.98/EA

Master Sommelier/Importer Fran Kysela creates Rubus wines to deliver lots of regional and varietal character at remarkably modest price points.  And "modest" the price is here for a real Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of fruit, flavor and power.  At just 13.5% alcohol, this isn't hot, fat or over-the-top.  Instead you'll get a bold nose of black currant, blackberry, and dark plum fruit with a touch of vanilla and spice from five months in French oak.  It's plush, lush and rich on the palate with deep black currant and berry fruit wrapped in creamy oak and lifted by a nice touch of crushed herb and eucalyptus.  Finishes velvety and smooth with big fruit and lingering notes of chocolate and spice.  A great Napa Cab for sipping, parties and - of course - a thick and juicy steak!

Hoopla The Mutt Napa Valley Red Blend 2014 Product #32026 (In Stock)
Hoopla The Mutt Napa Valley Red Blend 2014 Hoopla The Mutt Napa Valley Red Blend 2014

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 2014, though, with 100% Napa Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Syrah getting 18 months in new and second use French oak.  Opens with a big burst of nicely oaked dark currant and black cherry fruit and then delivers bold flavors of crushed summer berries, blackcurrant, chocolate and spice.  Finishes with a steak or burger-friendly pop of light tannin and leaves spicy currant and berry fruit lingering nicely.

The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 Product #31334 (In Stock)
The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014

This is an unknown wine with a fantastic pedigree.  Winemaker Neil Koch learned red wine making from Philippe Melka at Seavy, Vineyard 29 and Bryant family before making Cabernet and Chardonnay at Lewis Cellars.  Today, he’s a wine broker in Napa, which gives him plenty of insight into the best places in the Valley to get outstanding (if under-priced) grapes.  His 2014 The Dude blends Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (27%) and Petite Verdot (7%) from vineyards in Calistoga, Rutherford, Carneros and Oak Knoll.  The northern sites give power and flesh; the cooler, southern, vineyards add brightness, freshness, and keep the alcohol at a very palatable 14.1%.

Opens beautifully with 30 minutes of air. Rich, dark aromas of black and red currant, blackberry, chocolate, cedar, herb and spice burst from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how it pumps out dark fruit, bitter-sweet chocolate, crushed herb, and baking spice flavors that completely fill your mouth.  There’s plenty of luxury here, but also a fine freshness and vigor as the flavors drive on through the finish before expanding with a pop of late arriving flavors.  Just 1,200 cases made. Smooth, rich, flavorful, and delicious now – 2024.

Green & Red Zinfandel Chiles Canyon 2014 Product #32011 (In Stock)
Green & Red Zinfandel Chiles Canyon 2014 Green & Red Zinfandel Chiles Canyon 2014

I can't recall a better release of Green & Red's "entry level" Chiles Canyon Vyd red in years.  From old vines growing at 1,000-1,700 feet elevation to the east of Napa, there's more than enough ripeness and fleshy fruit here to delight any Zin fan.  Dark black cherry and super-ripe raspberry fruit hold center stage with a bold does of oak spice and lots of zesty structure at the end.  Big, but poised and fun - even refreshing! - to drink now.

Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Product #31543 (In Stock)
Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Named for a giant, pre-statehood ranch that stretched from Rutherford to Calistoga, this is Joe Wagner's take on a traditional California field blend.  Napa Valley Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot and Syrah ferment and age together for 18 months in French oak.  Big aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, cherry and black pepper.  Then bold flavors of tobacco, cherry pie, licorice and lots of super-ripe dark fruit with a touch of sweet oak on the finish.  Bold stuff for big food!

Like your Zin big, dark, velvety and really, really, bold? From the high hills overlooking Napa to the west, this is your wine. Love how the big, dark, and intense flavors ride along a crushed velvet palate.

"Precise and well-built, with briary dark berry aromas and a lively core of acidity and tannins framed by notes of black cherry, licorice and peppered herb. Drink now through 2024."Wine Spectator 91 points

It's great to see this long-time favorite return to form in the terrific 2012 vintage.  Always it showcases rich currant and blackberry fruit with accents of spice, herb, and chocolate.  Rich and smooth and easygoing for immediate delight with or without food.

"Soft and silky with pretty tannin tension and light chewiness. Medium body and chocolate, walnut and blackcurrant character. Drink now."  James Suckling 90 points

Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2015 Product #31477 (In Stock)
Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2015 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2015

As you'd expect from this estate, here's a right down the middle, classically styled, Napa Sauvignon Blanc - or "Fume Blanc" as Robert Mondavi christened the style.  A blend of 90% Sauivgnon Blanc, 6% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Musque (for extra aromatics), all aged 5 months in neutral barrel.  Big aromas of sweet citrus, tropical fruit and fresh flowers lead to mouth-filling flavors of grapefruit, green melon, white peachh and a hint of smokey herb.  Finishes clean and crisp and dry.

Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014 Product #31944 (In Stock)
Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014 Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014

Oakville is the heart of Napa Cabernet both geographically and in style.  This is pretty much the essence of Oakville Cab in a terrific vintage.  It's old-fashioned Clone 7 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in sandy loam soils and harvested at just 3 tons per acre.  20 months in 25% new French oak rounds things out and adds a nice spice.  Delicious right now and a fine wine to lay down for 5-15 years.

"This grows at a vineyard on Highway 29 just north of Oakville Cross Road; it’s clone 7 Cabernet planted in 1980 on sandy loam soils. The wine is relatively light in color and in its overall gracious impression, while still offering generous fruit richness in a fresh and friendly Cabernet. Simple and elegant."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31539 (In Stock)
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Joe Wagner calls this Quilt because it’s made from a patchwork of vineyards across Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon regions:   Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Calistoga and Howell Mountain. There’s no mistaking the Caymus and Belle Glos heritage in the wine’s rich fruit, mouthfilling size and plush velvet texture.  Twenty months in barrel (70% new) adds generous does of sweet spice, cocoa and vanilla aromas and flavors and softens Cabernet Sauvignon’s sometimes astringent tannins. 

Here’s Joe's tasting note:  “Quilt Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a seamless blend of cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves and charred meat with complex notes of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin. Rich and satisfying on the palate with decadent chocolate brownie, yogurt, and molasses flavors in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis.”  We’d add that the wine’s length and balance are especially impressive, and you’ll love drinking this with grilled/roasted meats or all by itself.

Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013 Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013

Flora Springs crafts their Napa Red blend from Cabernet Sauvignon (52%) and Merlot (20%) plus Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc lots grown for Trilogy plus a nice dose (17%) of rich, meaty, Syrah.  In the great 2013 vintage, there's a lot going on here, starting with bold aromas of black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, sage, and baking spice.  The spice - clove and allspice - shows on the palate and finish, too, giving complexity to the ripe black cherry and red currant fruit and accents of cedar and savory herb.  A nicely chewy finish gives this the heft for steak or lamb, but the wine stays silky enough to drink most anytime you're craving a rich Napa blend.

Wow - best in years here at this old-school Napa institution.  It's 100% Cabernet the heart of Napa - Rutherford, Oakville and St. Helena - aged 22 months in new and older French oak.  It smells great with bold black currant, spice and smoke aromas that lead to big flavors of currant, blackberry, cassis and chocolate.  Spice and baker's chocolate flavors fan out on the long, dry, savory finish that leaves a bit of Rutherford Dust behind.

Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

While Faust includes some lots from the Huneeus family’s single-vineyard Quintessa project, it’s intended to stand alone as a representation of the very best qualities of all of Napa Valley.  In 2014, it’s a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot from vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville plus dashes of Mount Veeder, St. Helena and Oak Knoll fruit.  As Wine Review Online said of the 94 point 2012, “Hard to call a $50 wine a value purchase, but by Napa Valley standards this Faust Cabernet Sauvignon qualifies… If the price were $75 most Napa devotees wouldn't even blink.”  Enjoy it now - 2034.

"This is very intense with blackberries, dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, fine and fruity yet complex and intense. Structured and lightly austere. Beautiful."  James Suckling 94 points

Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015

Always one of California's very best Sauvignon Blancs (last vintage rated 94 points by WE!), the 2015 delivers the goods again. A big slug of aromatic Sauvignon Musque gives an exotic note to the passion fruit, lemon pulp, pear and white peach fruit and lifts the aromas and flavors nicely.  A touch of wood gives this smoky complexity but doesn't detract from the firm, fresh, crisp, finish.

A perennial "Top 10" wine in fine restaurants across the USA, the 2015 Cakebread once again opens with vanilla, light butter, and cinnamon/nutmeg scents.  Medium-bodied, the flavors follow the nose with the addition of ripe apple, melon, and bright citrus fruit. Bright and fresh with no heaviness.  These guys have been on a bit of a roll the past few vintages, with very solid results.

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Product #32071 (In Stock)
Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013

Spencer Hoopes doesn’t seek out a lot of attention or make a lot of wine – only 2,500 cases or so in total.  So even though he’s been farming some of Napa’s finest Cabernet fruit at his White Horse Vineyard in Oakville since 1983 and making top-notch, great value, wines since the mid-1990s, you may not know the name.  Which is a good thing – it’s the reason we’re able to bring you this beauty for so much less than wines of this pedigree and praise normally command these days.  Decant for an hour and drink with grilled beef or lamb, but be sure to save a few to enjoy over the next 10 years.

"Aromas of ink and blueberries. Some stones, too. Full body, dusty-textured tannins and a rich finish. Yet this remains agile and formed."  James Suckling 93 points

"Editors Choice! This full-bodied, velvet-textured wine has an exotic aroma like a pine forest and tastes like a bowl full of blueberries. Ripe, almost jammy flavors coat the tongue, and vibrate with black currant on the finish. Fine-grained tannins give the texture lots of grip, and support the ripe fruit flavors so they stay dry and appetizing sip after sip." Wine Enthusiast 92 points
