Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 Product #32398 (In Stock)
Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015 Rubus Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015

Master Sommelier/Importer Fran Kysela creates Rubus wines to deliver lots of regional and varietal character at remarkably modest price points.  And "modest" the price is here for a real Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of fruit, flavor and power.  At just 13.5% alcohol, this isn't hot, fat or over-the-top.  Instead you'll get a bold nose of black currant, blackberry, and dark plum fruit with a touch of vanilla and spice from five months in French oak.  It's plush, lush and rich on the palate with deep black currant and berry fruit wrapped in creamy oak and lifted by a nice touch of crushed herb and eucalyptus.  Finishes velvety and smooth with big fruit and lingering notes of chocolate and spice.  A great Napa Cab for sipping, parties and - of course - a thick and juicy steak!

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.

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

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.

It's great to see this long-time favorite return to form in the terrific 2012 vintage.  Always it showcases rich currant and blackberry fruit with accents of spice, herb, and chocolate.  Rich and smooth and easygoing for immediate delight with or without food.

"Soft and silky with pretty tannin tension and light chewiness. Medium body and chocolate, walnut and blackcurrant character. Drink now."  James Suckling 90 points

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.

Marietta Game Trail Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014 Product #32565 (In Stock)
Marietta Game Trail Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014 Marietta Game Trail Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2014

Rich, dark and yummy, this sports a big dose of ripe tannin that's fully cloaked by the fruit and that melts away nicely.  Release price was $40, making this an enven better now!

"This is the first year Marietta has produced this Cabernet Sauvignon from a south-facing vineyard perched at 1400 feet elevation overlooking the Yorkville Highlands. This small block of clone 6 Cabernet is cane pruned and yields “2 tons per acre in a good year via many insanely small open clusters”. It was aged in neutral barrels for 20 months. Deep garnet-purple, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Game Trail displays a spicy nose of cloves, cinnamon and Sichuan pepper over a core of crème de cassis, dried Mediterranean herbs and black soil. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the generous fruit is well supported by grainy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with lingering mineral suggestions."Wine Advocate 93 points

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

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

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

Hoopes Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2013 Product #32071 (In Stock)
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

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?!)

Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

While Faust includes some lots from the Huneeus family’s single-vineyard Quintessa project, it’s intended to stand alone as a representation of the very best qualities of all of Napa Valley.  In 2014, it’s a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot from vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville plus dashes of Mount Veeder, St. Helena and Oak Knoll fruit.  As Wine Review Online said of the 94 point 2012, “Hard to call a $50 wine a value purchase, but by Napa Valley standards this Faust Cabernet Sauvignon qualifies… If the price were $75 most Napa devotees wouldn't even blink.”  Enjoy it now - 2034.

"This is very intense with blackberries, dark chocolate, fresh mushrooms and blackcurrants. Full-bodied, fine and fruity yet complex and intense. Structured and lightly austere. Beautiful."  James Suckling 94 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

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

Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Plenty of Prichard Hill power here with a smooth, velvet, finish.

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is fabulous. A host of graphite, smoke, licorice, lavender, crème de cassis and exotic spice give the wine its characteristic savory and mineral-drenched flavors. Medium in body and exquisitely layered in the glass, the Signature is a real head-turner. Best of all, it is a superb value. And I do mean superb."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9/% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, is a classic example of Pritchard Hill, Chappellet and of Napa Valley. Brilliant purity, a dense purple color, superb blackberry and floral-infused blueberry fruit and cassis, a full-bodied mouthfeel, moderate but sweet tannin and a long, layered, texture and finish make for a profound Cabernet Sauvignon that actually sells at a bargain price for what is in the bottle. Moreover, look for it to evolve graciously for another 20+ years."Wine Advocate 94 points

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

Beautiful purity of fruit and fine tannins in this lovely mountain Cabernet.

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder comes from a vineyard once owned by the late Robin Williams called Pym Rae (now owned by the Tesseron family from Bordeaux) that sits at an elevation of 1,800 feet. Blueberry, blackberry and cassis are all present in this full-bodied wine that displays the high-elevation bluer fruits that Mt. Veeder can provide. There is a floweriness and full-bodied richness, big extract, but great balance and no rusticity. This beauty should drink well for at least 25-30 years."Wine Advocate 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.
