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

This under the radar Paso Robles estate is a prime supplier to Justin, and their own Reserve Cab excels in that plush, rich, style.  100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in a cooler, limestone-laced, vineyard and given 2 years in French oak. Loaded with rich black currant and black cherry compote fruit flavors with some dark chocolate and spicy oak shadings.  Finishes big and strong with bold fruit, spice and mocha notes lingering over supple tannins.  A really fine steak and cookout Cab!

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #31902 (In Stock)
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

Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2013 Product #31945 (In Stock)
Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2013 Round Pond Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Est 2013

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

The husband-and-wife team of Mark Porembski and Jennifer Williams crafted their 421 case 2013 Cabernet from four outstanding Napa Valley vineyards.  Anomaly in St. Helena gives richness, Farella in Coombsville freshness, Sleeping Lady in Yountville structure, and Moulds in the Oak Knoll hills grip and complexity.  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.

"The fresh sage, blackberry and sweet black tobacco aromas and flavors are compelling. Full body, yet shows form and tension. Fresh and delicious finish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 94 points

"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

Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Half-Bottles Roy Estate Proprietary Red 2013 Half-Bottles

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
