Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Product #31691 (In Stock)
Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Abeja Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

"Complex aromas of blueberry, blackberry, bitter chocolate, leather, licorice and violet reminded me a bit of top Mendoza Malbec. Suave and seamless in the mouth, with insinuating dark berry, licorice and spice flavors filling the mouth without showing any heaviness. Finishes dry and long, with fully integrated tannins. This fine-grained Cabernet is deceptively approachable now but should age gracefully."  Vinous (Raynolds) 92 points

"The 2012 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is brilliant. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged 23 months in 60% new French oak, it boasts classic Cabernet notes of dark currants, crushed rock, bouquet garni and earth. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine that has good concentration, nicely integrated acidity and tons of character. Like a lot of 2012s, there’s enough texture and fruit here to keep it enjoyable, but it will also age beautifully. Drink 2017-2032."Wine Advocate 91 points

"Broad and open-textured, with nubby tannins around a focused core of black cherry, roasted meat and sage flavors, picking up a chocolate note as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2020. 2,946 cases made."Wine Spectator 91 points

Airfield Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Product #32195 (In Stock)

From one of the first commercial vineyards in Washington (planted 1968), this is a completely delicious Cabernet Sauvignon at a very tasty price!  Right down the middle black fruit, spice and dusty oak with a "drink me now" personality.

"The aromas suggest notes of herb, vanilla, wood spice, plum and dark fruit. The palate is restrained in style, full of dark-fruit and barrel flavors and lightly grainy tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Product #31686 (In Stock)
Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016

Altosur - "High in the South" - wines are grown at 1,200 meters and higher elevations, giving them a fine purity and finesse to go with the bold Mendoza fruit. From estate grown fruit and with a few months barrel aging, this is loaded with juicy currant and blackberry fruit framed by touches of chocolate and crushed herb.  Plenty of heft - no one will call this "light" - but no heaviness in a tasty, drink now and with anything, Cabernet Sauvignon value.

Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Product #31389 (In Stock)
Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013 Arrowood Cabernet Sauvignon Knights Valley 2013

A new wine from this traditional producer, one that breaks out their juicy, intense, Knights Valley fruit into a wine of its own. Stylish, with black cherry, currant, and red raspberry fruit, a fleshy middle, and nice length before finishing with classically grainy tannins. Grill a steak and enjoy!

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (Knights Valley), all Knights Valley fruit in this vintage, is superb. Raspberry jam, spice, scorched earth, rose petal, cloves and new leather are some of the signatures. Knights Valley is often noted for Graves-like sense of gravel-infused minerality, naturally allied to a California expression of fruit. That is exactly what readers will find in the 2013."   Vinous (Galloni) 91 points

Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Product #30456 (In Stock)
Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012

Another winner from Napa's hugely successful 2012 harvest, 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.

Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Product #30857 (In Stock)
Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012 Bulgariana Cabernet Sauvignon Thracian Valley 2012

This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the broad, warm, Thracian Plain in Bulgaria's south, just north of Greece and west of the Black Sea.  Ripe Cabernet fruit reaches the winery cool and receives just the right amount of time on the skins before finishing aging in tank.  Plenty of chocolaty richness here, with big black raspberry and currant fruit and accents of tobacco and cedar.  Michel Rolland consults here, and his touch with tannins shows in the smooth, velvety, finish.  A fantastic value you'll enjoy with anything roasted or grilled.

"Dark garnet to the eye, this wine has aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, coffee and freshly ground black pepper. Flavors of height-of-summer cherry, raspberry and baking spice persist on the palate through a finish that is awash in silky tannins."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Cade Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2014 Product #32191 (In Stock)

Normally pretty forbidding, in 2014 this is delicious now with grilled beef.  Rich, long and deep.

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate from their Howell Mountain vineyards is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. A beauty, with mulberry, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, graphite and spice, the wine cuts a broad swath across the palate with no hard edges. The color is a healthy, deep purple and the wine full-bodied, rich, and while drinkable now, is capable of evolving for up to 15-20 years."Wine Advocate 93 points

Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30583 (In Stock)

Dennis Cakebread turns out a classic Napa Cabernet with fine fruit and a firm finish.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful crème de cassis fruit, excellent structure on the palate’s backside and represents a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot. Aged primarily in French oak, the wine is youthful and young, with the coiled, restrained character of many 2013s, but the concentration is impressive and the purity is there. Beautiful black and blue fruits are obvious, and the wine structured, delineated and vibrant. Reasonably good value as well. Give it another 6-12 months bottle age, and drink it over the following 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 90+ points

"Sizable, tightly woven tannin wraps itself around black fruit with moderate acidity in this thick, tangy wine, which has 9% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot within the blend. Given less than two years in French oak, 60% of it new, it's an approachable, enjoyable wine that will also age. Drink now through 2021."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Product #31987 (In Stock)
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014

A GREAT burger Cab, this is loaded with rich fruit and spice in a plushly textured wine that finishes with a deep chew of ripe fruit.

"From vines planted in 1973; cropped at one cluster per shoot. Bright, dark red. Ripe yet cool aromas of cassis, licorice and menthol. Supple, spicy and slightly medicinal; in a rather Old World style for a Catena wine but still with lovely fruit sweetness. The deep clay soil stayed cool in 2014 but the fruit was not affected by rot, according to Vigil. Began a bit clenched, with the acids and tannins out of sync, but harmonized nicely as it opened in the glass."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Product #31507 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selectiion 2013

Special Selection is just that – a special bottling made from the best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon grown by the Wagner family each vintage.  And, in a vintage Robert Parker calls “the finest vintage I have experienced in tasting North Coast varietals over the last 37 years,” the “best barrels” are very fine indeed.  It’s always a big, rich, wine that pumps out oodles of dark currant, chocolate covered plum, mocha, sweet spice, and rich blackberry aromas and flavors.  On release, the wine can be almost overwhelming in its rich, creamy, density but there are plenty of the firm (but very ripe) tannins needed to support long-term aging.

"Zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins leading to a long, powerful and refined aftertaste that keeps reverberating while maintaining a strong personality. Drink now through 2030."Wine Spectator 95 points

Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #30796 (In Stock)
Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Corison Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Give this 3-4 years and then watch out!

"A deep, inky wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is endowed with serious depth. Here the flavors are unusually dark and intense, with plenty of blue and black stone fruits. Graphite, cloves and licorice contribute to an overall impression of gravitas. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet needs time in bottle to truly shine. Hints of violet, lavender and plum add the final shades of nuance. All of the signatures of the vintage come through beautifully. The translucent, mineral-laced finish is especially appealing. Frankly, it's hard to put the glass down."  Vinous (Galloni) 94 points

Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mt 2013 Product #32106 (In Stock)
Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mt 2013 Dunn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mt 2013

A rarity - a wine from Randy Dunn that you can actually enjoy now (with a 2 hour decant)and for decades.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a towering majestic wine. Rich, powerful and yet massively tannic, the 2013 possesses a stunning combination of super-ripe fruit, bright acids and plenty of supporting structure. In the early going, the Howell Mountain is a bit reticent, especially next to the Trailer, but after several hours, the vibrancy of the Howell Mountain bottling dazzles. Dunn's Howell Mountain Cabernet is without question one of the wines of the great 2013 vintage."  Vinous (Galloni) 98+ points

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts an opaque color, abundant notes of blackberries, spring flowers and blueberries, fabulous richness and a distinctive, singular smell of pen ink. With great intensity, formidable body, sweet tannin and a long finish, it should drink well for 25+ years."Wine Advocate 95-97 points

Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

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?!)

Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Product #32196 (In Stock)

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.

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

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

From rolling vineyards near the Languedoc city of Beziers, this is an utterly delightful blend of organic Cabernet Sauvignon with light splashes of Pinot Noir and Merlot.  A lovely coppery salmon color in the glass, it's loaded with crunchy strawberry, ripe cranberry, and a dash of orange zest that collectively deliver outstanding energy and drive.  Finishes emphatically dry and long.

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

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

We've been spending a lot of time lately looking for really impressive Napa Cabernet that stays under $75, and this is one of the few we've tasted that made us sit up and take notice.  It's almost all Cabernet Sauvignon (about 2% Merlot) from the Hoopes estate vineyard in Oakville plus a bit of fruit from Yountville.  It's a right down the middle mid-Valley Napa Cab in style, with plenty of lush fruit (black currant, dark plum, blackberry), a good dose of oak spice, and firm, lightly dusty, tannins.  Great now with a one-hour decant and a thick, juicy, steak, it will really shine from 2020 onwards.

"This cellar-worthy treasure has attention-grabbing spice, leather and smoky oak aromas. Ripe fruit flavors are heavily shaded with undeniably delicious accents of cedar and chocolate. It is bold in flavor, full in body and quite tannic in texture. Hold until at least 2018; the wine should improve even more after that."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

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

Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Joseph Carr Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

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.

In the fine 2014 harvest, the wine opens with 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 with fine sophistication and balance.
