Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015 Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2015

A solid wine takes a BIG step up in 2015 in the richest, deepest, and more robust version of this great value Napap Caberent we've seen yet.  A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oak Knoll and Mt Veeder plus 6% Merlot and a splash of Petite Sirah with a nice lash of French and American oak.  A Caymus-like texture - plush, rich, chocolaty - with lavish flavors of back berries, currant, milk chocolate, fresh herb and oodles of spice.  Finishes with a gush of dark fruit, vanilla and spice over velvety tannins.  An outstanding value.

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.

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31539 (In Stock)
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

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.

"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

Frogs Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2013 Frogs Leap Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2013

Proof that moderate abv doesn't mean loss of ripeness, richness, or yumminess.

"A super attractive, mid-weight wine, the estate's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up a classic expression of Rutherford. Sweet red cherry, iron, smoke and chocolate are all pushed forward, followed by a kick of energy that punctuates the finish. Exuberant and racy, with fabulous intensity, the 2013 is showing beautifully today. Despite its openness today, the 2013 has the pedigree to drink well for many years."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 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

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

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

Another great release of this Napa Cabernet classic.

"Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and cracked pepper. Some dried flowers. Full-bodied, firm and very structured with chewy yet polished tannins and a long, long finish. Vivd and gorgeous. Lots of lemon rind. Beautiful now. Built for aging. Better in 2020." James Suckling 95 points

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five has a dense ruby/purple color and is a blend of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 100% new French oak. This is always a beautifully elegant wine from Shafer, and the 2013 is no exception. Blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with crushed rock and spring flowers are present in this medium-bodied, stylish and elegant wine. Tannins are soft, the wine pure and ideal for drinking now and over the next 12-15 years."Wine Advocate 94 points

Unusually approachable for Howell Mt. but with plenty of power and depth. Decant and enjoy with steak or cellar for up to 20 years.

"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain is the largest cuvée (2,675 cases) and a blend of all five Bordeaux varieties: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec. It’s a beauty. Opaque purple, with notes of licorice, charcoal, lead-pencil shavings, blackcurrants and spice, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, lavishly rich and pure, with sweet tannin and a long finish. This wine is approachable now, but promises to age beautifully for 20-25 years."Wine Advocate 93 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.

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

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

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

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Product #30054 (In Stock)
Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012 Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2012

I’ve sampled this twice now – once pre-release at the winery in late 2014 and again with Lindy Novak here at the store in June – and it’s nothing short of breathtaking.  Parker has compared Spottswoode with Margaux in the past and with Pauillac for this release, and there is definitely something Bordeaux-like here.  But the intensity of fruit and supple, rich, tannins are distinctly Napa.

"Incredible blueberries, blackberries, black walnuts, minerals, black licorice and flowers. Full-bodied, very tight and structured with hints of hazlenuts, fine chocolate and hints of minerals and spices. A solid and classic-styled Napa Valley cab. Layered and very fine."  James Suckling 98 points

"The opaque purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a glorious bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, a Pauillac-like lead pencil note, and background new oak. The overall impression is one of restraint combined with richness. This full-bodied effort possesses good acidity and ripe tannin. It has been crafted for the long-term. The hallmarks of great Spottswoode wines are their purity and elegance combined with serious power. The 2012 has that in abundance. This youthful, reserved Cabernet will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades or more."Wine Advocate 96+ points
