Ca' Momi Merlot Napa Valley 2015 Product #32354 (In Stock)

A rich, soft, supple Merlot you'll enjoy sipping on solo or with classic matches like beef tenderloin and lamb. Big aromas of black plum, cherry and chocolate turn into rich flavors with accents of nutmeg, clove and mint.  Rich and round on the palate, with no hard edges, the wine finishes with plenty of plum and blackberry fruit, chocolate, spice, and crushed herb.  Nicely rich and balanced at 13.9% abv and well priced for a Napa Merlot.

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.

Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015

Serious Spring Mountain Cabernet here with the firm tannins for steak but also plenty of deep, luxurious, fruit.  About 80% Cabernet Sauvignon plus Merlot, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot all grown 2,000 feet above the Napa Valley floor. Dark, rich, and fleshy, this is laced through with dark black currant and plum fruit with accents of chocolate spice (from 22 months in barrel) and graphite minerality (from mountain vineyards).  Finishes rich and firm with chewy tannins and lingering flavors of chocolate covered cherry.  Delicious now and improving through 2025+.

Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2014 Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2014

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

Elyse Petite Sirah York Creek Vyd 2012 Elyse Petite Sirah York Creek Vyd 2012

A classic take on this fruit-filled, muscular, grape with plenty of dark fruit and a firm, grippy, finish.  Fantastic cookout red.

"This is from a tremendous vineyard site near the top of the appellation, situated from 1,250 to 1,800 feet. It incorporates small additions of Zinfandel and Carignane into the whole, a picture of soft beguiling violet aromas that are followed by a velvety texture and underlying grip of tannin. Rich red fruit and a taste of licorice linger on the intense finish."Wine Enthusiast 94 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.

Trefethen Merlot Oak Knoll Estate Napa 2014 Product #33114 (In Stock)
Trefethen Merlot Oak Knoll Estate Napa 2014 Trefethen Merlot Oak Knoll Estate Napa 2014

In a bold, fruit-forward, vintage like Napa's 2014 harvest, Trefethen's old-school restraint plays especially well.  Here Merlot from their Oak Knoll estate vineyard is harvested ripe - but not too ripe! - and aged in cash until focused and long.  Ripe black raspberry and red currant fruit get a touch of complexity from notes of herb and spice.  The ripe fruit flavors keep on pumping across the fine grained tannins and dry, clean, finish.  Classic.

An old friend turns in a second straight performance in a year of dark but elegant Napa Cabernet.  This 89% Cab Sauv opens with 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?!)

Cakebread Chardonnay Napa 2016 Cakebread Chardonnay Napa 2016

A perennial "Top 10" wine in fine restaurants across the USA, the 2016 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.

Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015

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.

"A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is spicy on the nose with cassis, plums and cedar scents. Medium-bodied and well balanced, it shows nice purity in the mouth with grainy tannins and good length."Wine Advocate 90 points

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 Product #32642 (In Stock)
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

Ch Montelena Cabernet Napa 2015 Product #33328 (In Stock)

One of the best releases of this Napa classic ever with richness, depth and perfect balance.

"Montelena's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Pliant and supple, the 2015 offers notable density and raciness in an up-front style that will drink well upon release. Succulent red/purplish fruit, spice, new leather and licorice are front and center. A wine of total allure, the 2015 hits all the right spots. Best of all, at $62 a bottle it is one of the best values readers will find in Napa Valley Cabernet. Don't miss it."  Vinous 92 points

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley release from Montelena has a beautiful bouquet that just jumps from the glass. Lovely notes of crème de cassis, violets, tobacco, and orange blossom all give way to a ripe, medium to full-bodied, sweetly fruited Cabernet Sauvignon that shows the charm of the 2015 front and center. It will keep for 10-15 years."  Jeb Dunnuck 92 points

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Product #30758 (In Stock)
Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

Want to see what happens to Zeitgeist Cab with a couple of years on bottle?  Winemakers Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams have offered us 6 cases of their dwindling supply of 2013 Cab (with only 421 cases made, there wasn’t much to start with!).  It’s more firm and grippy than the fleshier 2015 edition and has plenty of life in front of it.  But the fruit and oak are pulling together beautifully now and it’s well worth checking in on to enjoy the ridel

"Good dark ruby. Captivating floral lift to the aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and graphite minerality, with complementary sweet oak nuances. Sweet, dense, supple and deep, with dark berry and spice flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity and accented by piquant pepper and herb notes. Finishes juicy and long, with firm-edge tannins and lovely floral lift. Very well done."  Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points

"There are 421 cases of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa from the same four sites used for the 2012. This wine is coiled tightly and displays higher tannin as well as higher extract and richness. It has an inky purple color and beautiful, dense blackberry and cassis flavors along with hints of licorice, forest floor and earth. Some background oak also makes an appearance."Wine Advocate 93+ points

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015

The husband-and-wife team of Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams crafted their 400 case 2015 Cabernet from three outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.  Sleeping Lady in Yountville – the source of their 99 point flagship wine – gives deep fruit and classic structure.  St. Helena's Lewelling Ranch, continuously farmed since 1864, add richness and flesh and a connection to Napa history. And Farella Vineyard in Coombesville gives a welcome since of freshness and drive.

The result is the most complete Zeitgeist Napa Cabernet we’ve tasted to date.  There’s the plush plumpness of 2012, the fine and cellar-worthy power of 2013, and the silky purity of 2014, all rolled up into one.  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.

“There’s 400 cases of the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon and it’s a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot, from the Farella, Lewelling, and Sleeping Lady Vineyard, that was brought up in 70% new French oak. It’s another concentrated, ripe, sexy 2015 that has classic notes of cassis, blackberry jam, crushed rocks and leather. With terrific balance and building tannin, it’s a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years.”  Jeb Dunnuck 94+ points

"Beautifully floral, this wine sings with red cherry and cassis notes and bright acidity. Beneath its façade of freshness and perfume lies a weighty foundation of toasted oak, forest floor, clove and dark chocolate flavors. Balanced and full-bodied, it shows the dustiness of the appellation in a measured, elegant way."Wine Enthusiast 94 points

"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

"Shafer's 2014 Relentless is fabulous. The most expressive and varietally expressive of the three vintages of Relentless I tasted. In 2014, Relentless has 11% Petite Sirah, which, along with the personality of the year, kicks up the aromatics and flavors in a meaningful way. Lavender, mint, violets and crème de cassis notes are laced into the super-expressive finish. The 2014 is shaping up to be a real gem."  Vinous (Galloni) 92-95 points

"This is very fresh and balanced with a dense and silky texture plus lots of violet, berry and hints of sandalwood. It’s full and very silky. Long and intense. Hints of smoky, spicy, wonderful fruit. Lots of tannin but shows an intensity and power. Needs time to soften, but beautiful. 89% syrah and 11% petite sirah."  James Suckling 95 points

From Kermit Lynch Natl. Sales Manager Bruce Neyers, this Conn Valley Cab thrills with purity and grace. Thrilling aromas of sweet red currant, fresh cherry, cedar, smoke and more lead to a focused, exceptionally fresh, palate of cassis, red cherry, raspberry, and spice.  Very long on the palate and finish where sweet fruit pumps out over vibrant, fine-grained, tannins.  Worth every penny.
