Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014 Product #32543 (In Stock)
Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa 2014

Think about what you’re hoping to get from $50 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.  Bold aromas of blackcurrant, crushed blackberry, chocolate, and spice for sure.  Oodles of dark berry and currant fruit with bold accents of sweet spice, dark chocolate, and a bit of creamy mocha – that sounds good.  And a plush, velvety, texture that feel luxurious and rich and finishes smooth, lush and long with the tannins nicely cloaked in lingering black fruit and spice seals the deal.  You’ll find all that here in a wine that’s ready to drink right now with beef and lamb and will actually get better still over the next 5+ years.

It’s 100% Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, with most of the fruit coming from the red-hot Oak Knoll district in the southern part of Napa.  Cooling breezes from the bay helped moderate 2014’s warmth and lengthen hang time for the small, intense, berries.  A slow, two-week, fermentation with manual punch-downs followed by 15 months in 50% new French oak mellowed the powerful extraction and added lovely notes of spice and herb.  And somehow sliding in under the critics’ tasting agendas helps us keep the price of what really should be a $50 bottle to very user-friendly levels.  A delicious, extremely high-value, Napa Cab.

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.

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.

Textbook Merlot Napa 2015 Textbook Merlot Napa 2015

The name says it well here in this excellent, classically styled, Napa Merlot.  Spicy red currant and smoke aromas lead to a nicely rich mouthful of blackberry and black currant fruit with accents of spice and smoke.  A dash of Cabernet adds complexity. Full and fleshy with a smooth, food-friendly, finish leaving just a hint of tobacco and oak spice lingering.  Textbook Merlot indeed!

For reasons we don't quite understand, this is the last vintage the winery will be making this 95% Cabernet aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.  It's a stylish Napa Cabernet, with loads of redcurrant, berry, and currant fruit accented by notes of coffee, chocolate, cedar, and tobacco.  Delicious from first sip, this gains length and depth with air, with more coffee/mocha notes emerging over the fine-grained tannins.  Tastes like a $50+ bottle and ready now with steak and lamb.

Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015 Chappellet Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015

Yet another fine vintage for this Napa classic. Perfect balance of fruit and oak.

"For this wine, grapes are sourced from cooler sites within the valley, as well as from a high-elevation site on Mount Veeder. Together, they provide a juicy, fleshy core of apple and pear girded by mineral-laden texture and tension. The finish is marked by oak-derived toast and brioche notes."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

"Aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle and citrus orchard offer a lively presence. Ends with a pithy citrus character on the aftertaste."Wine Spectator 90 points

Keenan Chardonnay Spring Mountain 2014 Product #32910 (In Stock)
Keenan Chardonnay Spring Mountain 2014 Keenan Chardonnay Spring Mountain 2014

A really delicious Chardonnay from Napa's Spring Mountain - a rare "Napa" Chard that isn't from Carneros.  Here altitude and high-acid soils provide cooling balance to ripe Chardonnay fruit.  Aromas and flavors feature yellow apple, tangerine, sweet/tart lemon, and a hint of black tea.  The French oak adds richness and roundness and appealing vanilla and spice notes but don't cloak the fresh, vibrant, fruit. Easy to like.

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 Product #32552 (In Stock)
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015

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.

Other than the label update a few years ago, not much has changed at this family-owned winery in Rutherford. Sustainably farmed fruit, gentle winemaking, and rich American oak give this depth and power with a supple, drink now, finish.

"Lots of brambleberry, dark-chocolate and walnut character. Medium to full body, soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious now."  James Suckling 90 points

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.

An old friend returns to form in 2014, a year of ripe but elegant Napa Cabernet.  Blends 89% Cabernet Sauvignon with Cab Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot from St. Helena, Kenefick Ranch and Oak Knoll.  Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, violets and cedar lead to a deep, velvety, mouthful of crushed raspberry, dark currant, pepper, spice, and sweet oak spice. Ripe but not sweet, full but not fat, and finishing with stylish fine tannin to support aging (but why wait?!)

Not surprising this beat Burgundy in the 1976 Judgement of Paris - very Burgundian indeed!

"The 2014 Chardonnay is bright, focused and finely-cut. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2014 much of its lifted, mid-weight personality. As always, the Montelena Chardonnay is done in a brisk, dry style, with blocked malolactic fermentation."  Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch 2014 Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch 2014

"Shafer's 2014 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is powerful, rich and ample, with impeccable balance and class. Lemon confit, white flowers and mint are some of the nuances that are laced together. The warm, dry year produced an unctuous, oily Chardonnay, despite the malolactic fermentation having been blocked. The 2014 was done 75% in oak and 25% in steel."  Vinous (Galloni) 92 points

"First, their non-malolactic 2014 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch comes from a cool-climate vineyard in Carneros. This is aged in 75% oak casks and 25% stainless steel, which seems to be the perfect marriage for showcasing this wine’s rich fruit. The wine has loads of tangerine oil, citrus blossom, a hint of apples and orange marmalade. The oak is subtle, the wine medium to full-bodied, pure and rich. (This is the official tasting note, but I shared two bottles with some friends of mine at the casual Market restaurant in St. Helena, and it was a huge hit.)"Wine Advocate 93 points

A stunner with steak or cellar time.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. This is a beautiful Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of gorgeous fruit and some kirsch liqueur followed by blacker currants and plums jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, layered and rich, this provocative wine is actually a great value considering its stunning quality. Drink it over the next 20 years."Wine Advocate 94 points

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 Product #32359 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014

The husband-and-wife team of Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams crafted their 342 case 2014 Cabernet from four outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.  Anomaly in St. Helena gives richness, Sleeping Lady in Yountville structure, Oakville Ranch power, and St. Helena's Lewelling Ranch, continuously farmed since 1864, a connection to Napa history. 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.

“Zeitgeist is another winery where former Spottswoode winemaker Jennifer Williams runs the show along with owner Mark Porembski. Three brilliant Cabernet Sauvignons were tasted from the 2014 vintage. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from four separate AVAs: Coombsville, St. Helena, Yountville and Oakville. There is plenty of crème de cassis fruit, an inky purple color, notes of charcoal, toast, blackcurrants, and spicy oak are present in this dense, full-bodied opulently concentrated wine. It is multi-layered, impressive and has the silky suppleness of the 2014 vintage as a hallmark. Drink it over the next 15-20+ years.” Wine Advocate 94 points

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

As the saying about Vosne Romanee goes, "There are no common wines on Pritchard Hill," the super-luxury slope above Napa Don and Molly Chappellet pioneered. A powerhouse most producers would be happy to have as their flagship Cab is Don and Molly's introduction to the magic of Pritchard Hill.

"The deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature delivers mocha, cassis and black soil notes with touches of black cherries, charcoal and fried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with black berry and earthy flavors, textured by chewy tannins and finishing earthy/savory."Wine Advocate 93 points
