Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon AME Napa Valley 2014 Product #31378 (In Stock)
Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon AME Napa Valley 2014 Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon AME Napa Valley 2014

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.

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

Robert Craig Howell Mt Cabenet Sauvignon 2014 Product #32363 (In Stock)
Robert Craig Howell Mt Cabenet Sauvignon 2014 Robert Craig Howell Mt Cabenet Sauvignon 2014

Sure, you should wait 5 years. But this is so rich and smooth now, feel free to dive in early!

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain comes from an elevation of nearly 2,300 feet, from a vineyard planted in red volcanic, rocky soils. Rich, full-bodied, and possibly the star of an impressive line-up of wines, this is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot. Strikingly rich, opaque purple in color, with mulberry, boysenberry, blackberry, graphite and flowers, the wine is rich, chewy, full-bodied, multi-layered, and just a sensational example of Howell Mountain. Sadly, most Napa Howell Mountain Cabernets of this quality sell for $200-plus, but this one is available for under $100, which is to the credit of the folks at Robert Craig. This is 25- to 30-year wine, although there’s no harm in drinking it sooner."Wine Advocate 95 points

Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Product #32576 (In Stock)
Beringer Private  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Beringer Private  Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Legendary Beringer winemaker Ed Sbragia helped create Private Reserve in 1976, his first year at the winery.  The wine began as a single-vineyard bottling from what is now Chabot Vineyard, but over time has been built from the winery’s best-performing sites each year.  The 2013 is all about mountain fruit, with the bulk of the wine coming from Steinhauer and Bancroft Ranches on Howell Mountain plus about 11% from the St. Helena Home Vineyard.  Decant this for 3+ hours if you want to try it today, but it’s best to wait until 2023 and then enjoy for decades to come.

"A big, dense wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is solid. Much fresher and more delineated than the single-vineyard wines, the 2013 captures the freshness and overall intensity of the year. Graphite, smoke, inky blue/purplish fruit, wild flowers and lavender meld together to form an attractive mélange of aromas and flavors."  Vinous (Galloni) 95 points

"One of the great efforts of recent years, and not surprisingly so, is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve, a blend of 81% from Howell Mountain, 11% from St. Helena and the rest Calistoga and Mount Veeder. It is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 84% new French oak. At 15.2% natural alcohol, this is a big boy, but also classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with crème de cassis, graphite, licorice, and a touch of spicy oak. Winemaker Laurie Hook, who has since departed as winemaker, really hit a home run with this beauty. The wine could benefit from 7-10 years cellaring and probably last 30 to 40. When all is said and done, this is an instant classic, the wine full-bodied with oodles of crème de cassis, pen ink, graphite and baking spices. It is multi-dimensional, layered, and one of the all-time great Beringer Private Reserves – and there have been many. Drink 2023-2066"Wine Advocate 97 points

Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Product #31556 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013

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

Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014 Product #32193 (In Stock)
Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014 Philip Togni Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014

As Parker says, "For Togni, this is probably one of his more forward and precociously styled Cabernets." Decant to try now but best 2024 onwards.

"Togni's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is quite dark and powerful, but also very much medium in body. Graphite, smoke, savory herbs, mint, leather and a core of inky dark red and purplish fruit infuse this deep, beautifully layered Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 is a wine built on energy and aromatics that won't hit its stride until at least age ten."  Vinous (Galloni) 97 points

"The flagship wine, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate from his vineyard high on Spring Mountain is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. It seems slightly more approachable and civilized for a young Togni wine, with a dense ruby/purple color, loads of blackcurrant, licorice, and graphite, some earth and spice, but very subtle earth nuances. It is full-bodied and rich, but the tannins are well-integrated and don’t scream as loudly as some vintages of Togni can. For Togni, this is probably one of his more forward and precociously styled Cabernets. It will probably approach drinkability in several years, but don’t discount its aging potential, as this easily has 20-25 years of cellaring potential."Wine Advocate 94 points

Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014 Product #32277 (In Stock)
Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2014

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.  In 2014, though, the size is matched by remarkable purity, balance and even finesse.

On first opening, the wine is dark, deep and intense, with a rich core of blackberry, black currant, and graphite accented by notes of fresh herb, mocha and Aisan spice. On the palate there's plenty of plushness and density to the dark fruit, cocoa, and spice flavors with a beam of graphite/lead pencil running from front to back.  Smooth as silk across your palate until a nicely grippy tannic spine emerges on the blue/black fruit and graphite finish.  With air, the wine broadens, deepens, and turns smooth as slik with a finish that just keeps sailing on and on. A great wine to enjoy now or cellar for 20+ years.

"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

Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Product #26196 (In Stock)
Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Roy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Drinking beautifully right now, this is a rare "Library" release just received direct from the winery.  A stunning example of maturing Napa Cabernet!

"These wines certainly merit far more attention. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot (585 cases), was aged 24 months in 100% new Taransaud barrels. This is a younger, fresher, less complex style of wine, with loads of loamy soil as well as some volcanic/charcoal/ember-like notes that are vaguely reminiscent of a top Graves from Bordeaux. It is opaque purple, opulent, medium to full-bodied, rich and very satisfying. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. Drink 2015-2030" Wine Advocate 93 points

Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Product #31827 (In Stock)
Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Limited, so don't delay and miss this chance to add a little perfection to your cellar and table!A

"This is a sensational vintage from Quilceda's Paul and Alex Golitzin! Both the classic Columbia Valley Cabernet and the Galitzine Vineyard are sheer perfection, and the Palengat release is also just about as good as it gets. These are incredible wines that offer everything you could want from Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon, and readers owe it to themselves to try these wines!

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is another tour de force from this estate that's reminiscent of first growth Bordeaux from a vintage like 2009. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in new barrels, it offers incredible notes of blackcurrants, graphite, lead pencil shavings and crushed rocks in a full-bodied, decadent, insanely layered and seamless style. This beauty possesses ultra-fine tannin, no hard edges and a forward, already hard to resist style, yet it's going to keep for more than two decades." Wine Advocate 100 points
