Amuse Bouche Proprietary Red 2012
The 2012 Proprietary Red Amuse Bouche offers juicy blue and red fruits along with surprisingly noticeable acidity, good cleanliness and purity, and a style that falls somewhere between a French Bordeaux and a Napa red wine. Although still youthful, it displays a potential for plenty of aromatic complexity, medium to full body, and savory flavors....

Arkenstone Obsidian Estate Cabernet 2013
The 2013 Obsidian (625 cases) is a similar but slightly different blend than its predecessor (72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, and the rest small portions of Malbec and Merlot). It has an opaque purple color and a stunning nose of acacia flowers, blackberries, licorice, forest floor, mocha/chocolate, and gobs of cassis...


Bacio Divino Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet 2014
97 Advocate


Bacio Divino Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
I thought the Jenzen Cabernet Sauvignons showed brilliantly. The 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color followed by notes of creosote, burning embers, wood spice, forest floor, blackberry and cassis. It is full-bodied with great intensity and a long, rich, concentrated finish. 95 Advocate

Bacio Divino Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
The 2012 Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from the Dutch Henry Canyon area near both the Switchback and Hourglass Vineyards and sits at a 400-foot elevation, is certainly another stunner. It’s rare to see two Cabernet Sauvignons that eclipse anything from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, but I think Jenzen has done that...


Beau Vigne Reserve Cabernet 2009
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, from vines planted on volcanic soils, is gorgeous. Fresh, perfumed aromatics meld into expressive dark red fruit in this silky, layered Cabernet Sauvignon. High-toned floral, spiced notes add lift on the long, persistent finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
Advocate


Bedrock Old Vine Zinfandel 2015
Rich and supple, this is an explosion of pure, decadent fruit. Floral huckleberry and Chinese five-spice powder aromas open to layered blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2026. 4,500 cases made.
–TF Top 100 2017 #12


Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet 2010
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve is built from completely different sources. Sixty-six percent came from the St. Helena Home Ranch, 18% from the Chabot Vineyard, and the rest from Beringer�s estates in St. Helena, Rutherford and Coombsville. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14.6% natural alcohol with a pH of 3.8. Perhaps...


Bond Quella 2007
The 2007 Quella performed slightly better than I predicted last year. A magical combination of blueberry liqueur intermixed with crushed rock, spring flowers (violets?), earth, pen ink and burning ember leads to a full-bodied, majestically rich wine with a multilayered texture, silky tannins and a phenomenally long finish of over 50 seconds. This...
*One bottle available


Cade Howell Mountain Cabernet 2014
Shows deft balance, offering a charming mix of spicy, toasty oak amid a core of red and dark berry, with touches of anise and herb. Slowly and gracefully gains momentum and depth. Best from 2018 through 2028. 7,125 cases made.


Cakebread Benchland Select Cabernet 2010
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select offers abundant blueberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of spring flowers. Deep, rich and full-bodied, it comes across like a great classic Napa Cabernet. Nothing is out of place and the wine has a certain accessibility, but it will not hit its prime for another 5-7 years, and should...


Cayuse Camaspelo 2011
More Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated (80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot) and seeing the same barrel elevage, the 2011 Camaspelo offers deep, layered aromas and flavors of currants, black cherry, flowers, leafy herbs and spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and layered mouthfeel. Still tight and focused, it too will need...
*6 bottles available in original boxes.


Cayuse En Cerise Syrah 2011
Thick, full-bodied and voluptuous, which is common for this vineyard, the 2011 Syrah En Cerise has fabulous aromas and flavors (black cherry, pepper, and olive tapenade), thrilling purity and a mouth coating, decadent profile that�s hard to resist. Despite all of the richness here, it stays remarkably fresh and vibrant. Always one of the more...
*2 bottles available


Chateau Ste. Michelle-Dr. Loosen Eroica Single Berry Select 2005
Rich, silky and polished, offering a plush, exotic mouthful of honey, pear, quince, orange marmalade and pineapple, with whiffs of mayflower swirling through the flavors, persisting impossibly long on the finish. This is deftly balanced with acidity to keep it from being too syrupy. Drink now through 2020. 75 cases made. 98 Spectator

Colgin IX Estate Red 2013
Another perfect wine from Ann Colgin and her winemaking team is the 2013 IX Proprietary Red Estate, a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. An absolutely compelling wine, with notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and cassis, it has the full smorgasbord of black and blue...
*3 in owc


Colgin IX Estate Red 2014
From their steep hillside vineyards on Pritchard Hill, the 2014 Proprietary Red IX Estate is an old-fashioned Médoc blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, but with some Cabernet Franc (rarely seen in the Médoc these years) as well as Merlot and Petit Verdot. Striking aromatics of violets, forest floor, loamy soil nuances, blueberry, black...


Continuum 2010
This has been an impressive, serious wine since the debut vintage, and Tim Mondavi's estate high on Pritchard Hill has fashioned a 2010 blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Gorgeously ripe, intricate and nuanced, with aromas of spring flowers and red and black fruits, a stunning texture, sweet...


Continuum 2011
Another strong effort by Tim Mondavi from this relatively new project on Pritchard Hill, the 2011 Continuums final blend was 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. Harvested late, between October 17 and November 3, it spent 19 months in 85% new French oak. The wines impressive deep ruby/plum/purple color is...
*6 packs in OWC


Continuum Proprietary Red 2009
The 2009 Continuum impresses for its layered, textured personality and impeccable grace. Stylistically, the 2009 isn’t quite as rich as the 2008 but is instead more polished and refined. Sweet floral notes add an attractive upper register to the dark fruit, mocha and sweet spice aromas and flavors. The 2009 Continuum is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon,...


Coup de Foudre Cabernet 2012
The deep purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is made in a more linear style with lots of straightforward creme de cassis. It does not reveal the nuances and complexity of its sibling, the Cuvee 37.2, but if you love Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine delivers it in spades. Rich, ripe, medium to full-bodied and pure, it should drink well for 12-15+...

Delectus French Wedding Cabernet 2009
A rich, chewy style that's dense and extracted, offering loamy earth, black licorice and cedary oak flavors, with a notably dusty, cedary, drying tannic finish. Drink now through 2020. 425 cases made. JL 92 Spectator


Dominus Proprietary Red Wine 2011
The 2011 Dominus (86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc) displays a streak of herbaceousness. Tasting the wine one can see the stress this vineyard on the valley floor must have endured with all the fog and botrytis. It is exceptionally well made in this agonizing year for vignerons, exhibiting a dark plum/ruby hue along...


Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet 2012
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is classic Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, with plenty of licorice, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, forest floor and background oak and earth. It is full-bodied, showing wonderfully sweet tannin and a long, layered finish. It does strike me as somewhat more approachable in its youth than Randy...


Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet 2013
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a little closed at this stage, offering glimpses at fresh blackcurrants, blackberry pie and crushed black plums with nuances of cedar chest, underbrush, black truffles, charcuterie and espresso. Medium to full-bodied, it packs in the muscular fruit, with very firm, ripe,...


Eisele Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The utterly compelling 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon in this vintage and 1,800 cases were made. The wine is off-the-charts great, with an opaque bluish/purple color to the rim, an aroma of pen ink, graphite, blackberry and blueberry fruit, a hint of licorice, camphor and incense. The wine is full-bodied, with extraordinary...


Evening Land Chardonnay Summum 2009
The 2009 Chardonnay Summum Seven Springs Vineyard received the same elevage as its siblings but was chosen from a tenderloin parcel of the vineyard. It offers up a complex perfume of minerals, smoke, floral notes, white peach, and spiced apple. This sets the stage for a remarkably rich, concentrated, and lengthy Chardonnay, one of the finest I...


Figgins Estate Red Wine 2012
The Figgins 2012 Estate Red Wine is flat-out knockout stuff. Layered, gorgeously concentrated, full-bodied, and balanced, this Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend gives up sensational notes of cassis, black raspberry toasted bread and sweet spice on the nose. Ultra-pure, elegant and silky, it has the texture to drink nicely today, yet will age...


Harlan Estate Cabernet 2006
The 2006 Harlan Estate has turned out better than I originally predicted. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by classic aromas of creme de cassis, melted licorice, smoked meats, burning embers, and graphite. It has thrown off some of the tannic clout it displayed last year, revealing great balance. A candidate for wine of the vintage, this...
*Limited supply


Harlan Estate Proprietary Red 2008
Espresso, mocha, dark red berries, rose petals and spices are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2008 Harlan Estate. The wine fleshes out beautifully in the glass as it shows off its class and true pedigree. This is a decidedly ripe, forward vintage, but in exchange the wine will drink well right out of the gate. Anticipated maturity:...


Harlan Estate Proprietary Red Wine 2009
The 2009 Proprietary Blend Harlan Estate is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel. Cloves, dark plums, cherries, smoke and graphite add richness and resonance to this powerful, incisive wine. Juicy and exuberant, the 2009 has always had a certain raciness that is impossible to resist. Layers of fruit continue to build to the...

Herb Lamb Vineyards Cabernet 2012
Herb Lamb was initially made famous by the Cabernet Sauvignons produced by Colgin Vineyards starting in 1992, when Helen Turley was producing the wines from this terroir. There are two cuves. The least expensive wine (named after a dog, E II) is sourced from the very bottom of the Herb Lamb hillside vineyard.


Herb Lamb Vineyards Two Old Dogs Cabernet 2012
Herb Lamb was initially made famous by the Cabernet Sauvignons produced by Colgin Vineyards starting in 1992, when Helen Turley was producing the wines from this terroir. There are two cuves. The least expensive wine (named after a dog, E II) is sourced from the very bottom of the Herb Lamb hillside vineyard.


Hirsch Vineyards San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir 2013
The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate San Andreas Fault is another pretty, expressive wine that reflects the mid-weight style of the year. There is a lovely sense of purity on the fruit, yet the 2013 remains tightly wound and in need of time to fully open up. Hints of crushed flowers, dried cherries, mint and spices are nicely layered throughout. Galloni


Hourglass HG111 Red Blend 2012
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Aromatically, HG III explodes with toasted hazelnuts and bright, pure red fruits - black cherry, and raspberry. On the palate Merlot and Malbec deliver deep color and richness with a plush, silky texture, while Cabernet extends the finish adding layers of dark fruit (blackberry puree) with Asian...


Hundred Acre Kayli Morgan 2004
One of California’s (perhaps the world’s) most flamboyant, talented, contrarian wine producers is Napa Valley’s Jayson Woodbridge, the owner of Hundred Acre winery. Woodbridge has been running in high gear since his debut 2000. His 100% Cabernet Sauvignons are made primarily by him, with some consulting advice from Philippe Melka.

Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Cabernet 2014
The 2014 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon sports a very deep garnet-purple color and exotic nose of Indian spices, smoked meats and sandalwood over a core of crème de cassis, baked black berries and blueberry pie with wafts of dried roses and oolong tea. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and seductive, it has beautifully plush...


Jeff Cohn Rockpile Haley Syrah 2014
The 2014 Syrah Haley from Rockpile, is 100% Syrah aged 16 months in different sized French barrels. Thirty percent whole clusters were used. This is more structured, mineral-dominated and masculine than the So Serine, which is a quintessential, elegant, feminine, but super-rich style of Syrah. This is also rich, but more virile, backward and...


Joseph Phelps Insignia 2009
This deep ruby/purple-colored offering is an elegant, medium-weight wine with sweet red and black currant fruit, dark cherry, loamy soil and foresty characteristics as well as ripe tannin. This should be an early maturing Insignia that evolves quickly, but positively over the next 10-12 years. Advocate
*6 packs in OWC


Joseph Phelps Insignia 2011
The 2011’s deep ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of bouquet garni, mint, red and black currants, tobacco leaf and licorice, and a surprisingly intense, full-bodied mouthfeel with more richness and intensity than I would have expected from this vintage. It is also precocious and can be drunk upon release or cellared for 15 or more...

Kapcsandy State Lane Cabenet Grand Vin 2006 Magnum
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon State Lane Vineyard is a 650-case blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. A candidate for wine of the vintage, it boasts an extraordinary perfume of lead pencil shavings, plums, licorice, black currants, and white chocolate as well as a firm, Bordeaux-like structure, good purity, and...
*One Magnum available


Kapcsandy State Lane Cabenet Grand Vin 2007 Magnum
Absolutely riveting, and even better than I predicted last year is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - Grand Vin State Lane Vineyard. Made from 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and the rest tiny dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (400 cases produced), in two weeks of tastings, this wine stood out as one of those singular efforts that it is...
*One Magnum available


Kongsgaard Chardonnay 2014
The 2014 Chardonnay is a knockout, showing loads of structure, with lemon blossom intermixed with subtle pineapple, honeysuckle and crushed rock, giving it a vivid minerality, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a long, long finish. This should drink well for 7-8 years at minimum.Advocate


Kongsgaard Syrah 2012
The 2012 Syrah is a compelling example of this varietal. It is 100% Syrah, but it smells as if it includes a large quantity of Viognier. Huge notes of flowers, honeysuckle and lavender jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine along with notes of scorched earth, charcoal, smoked meats and a touch of steak tartar. A wine of great...
*3 Bottles available


Krupp Brothers Stagecoach Chardonnay 2014
A beautiful Chardonnay from Krupp Brothers, the 2014 displays crushed rock minerality in the aromatics, which also include honeysuckle, poached pear, white peach, and some tropical notes like tangerine. The color is a light gold and the wine full-bodied, layered and totally compelling. This is clearly one of the Chardonnays of the vintage. Drink...


Lail Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon J.Daniel Cuvee 2013
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon J. Daniel Cuvée is probably the qualitative equivalent of the 2012, but slightly more backward and coiled tight. Coming from three vineyards that Robin Lail uses in Napa Valley: one in Calistoga, one in Oakville and the other on Howell Mountain. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in about three-fourths new...
*3 bottles available


Leonetti Reserve Cabernet 2009
The wine known simply as Leonetti 2009 Reserve is, in fact, 92% Cabernet Sauvignon (the rest Merlot), a major departure from the norm of two-thirds to three quarters established in its previous eleven vintages (other exceptions being 2000 and 2001 when the Cabernet share dipped to less than half). Interestingly, too, Petit Verdot vines have...

Lewis Cellars Reserve Chardonnay 2014
Gains weight and richness, featuring rich fig, honeydew, apricot and pear flavors. The jazzy, toasty, mocha— and vanilla-scented oak turns to butterscotch and wows with power and finesse, sailing along on the aftertaste. Drink now. 550 cases made. Spectator


Lewis Masons Cabernet 2009
This tight red has firm tannins, with dried berry, cedar and tobacco notes. Well-structured and persistent, as the blackberry and wild berry flavors gain presence and dimension, with a spicy aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2022. 1,200 cases made. JL Spectator


Lewis Napa Chardonnay 2015
Rich and layered, showing well-focused green apple, pear, green fig and floral citrus notes, this ends with dense butterscotch accents and lingers on the finish, picking up a touch of smoky oak and anise. Drink now through 2021. 2,200 cases made. JL Spectator


Loring Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010
Impressive for its rich, expansive, deep layers of ripe fruit, offering portals into huckleberry, wild berry and boysenberry character, supported and framed by fresh acidity and minerally tannins, with a long, engaging finish. Drink now through 2021. 150 cases made. JL 94


Marilyn Merlot 2004 Velvet Collection 1.5
A chance meeting in Hollywood between photographer Tom Kelley and an aspiring but unknown actress led to a two-hour photo session on May 27, 1949 that made history and established Marilyn Monroe as the ultimate sex symbol of the 20th century. The ten stunningly beautiful photographs from the historic session became known as the "Red Velvet"...

Morlet Family Cabernet Passionnement 2012
The full-bodied 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Passionnément, which comes from the Oakville Bench, was aged in new oak puncheons. There are 250 cases of this Pauillac-like offering. It possesses notes of Christmas fruitcake, spice box, vanillin and black fruits in its opulent, open-knit personality. Drink 2018-2035. Advocate
*6 Bottles available


Morlet Family Vineyards Chardonnay Coup de Coeur 2013
the selection by Morlet of his favorite barrels is a five-barrel lot of 2013 Chardonnay Coup de Coeur. Pure orange marmalade, white peach, pineapple, mangos, subtle toast, great acidity and a liqueur of rocks underlie the wine's structure and intensity. This prodigious Chardonnay should age well for at least 10-15 years.98+ Advocate
*5 bottles available


Napanook 2012
The second wine, the 2012 Napanook Proprietary Red Wine has a similar profile, but certainly comes across as less nuanced and slightly less concentrated and profound compared to its bigger sister. It is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. It does reflect the fact that the selection process has gotten so severe that the second...


Newton Puzzle 2013
Bordeaux Blend from Newton.


Nickel & Nickel Hayne Vineyard Cabernet 2014
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard, which like its siblings is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, comes from the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in St. Helena. Easily the blackest and most saturated in color of the Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignons, the wine is rich and concentrated, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit, some licorice,...

Opus One 2009 Magnum
This bold, rich and assertive red is firm and concentrated, displaying a mix of dried currant, blackberry, wild berry and spice flavors, ending with loamy earth and melted black licorice notes.

Paul Hobbs Napa Cabernet 2012
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon with the Paul Hobbs moniker is pretty serious wine that could easily win many a tasting. Dense purple in color, with notes of blackcurrants, blackberry, charcoal and incense, the wine is full-bodied, opulent and a big-time winner. This is a stunner that’s drinking well already and yet promises to age well for 15-20...


Peter Michael Les Pavots 2010
The 2010 Les Pavots (3,000 cases produced) is composed of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.

Philip Togni Cabernet 2003 Magnum
Not surprisingly, Togni's 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has put on weight, and is performing even better out of bottle than it did from cask.

The wine is full-bodied,...


Quilceda Creek Cabernet 2000
The dark ruby-colored 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon has a nose reminiscent of a blackberry-flavored Yoplait yogurt laced with roasted oak and hints of licorice.

Ramey Pedregal Cabernet 2012
As usual, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard is a great wine (a 650-case blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petit Verdot). This sexy, full-throttle, opaque purple-colored 2012 boasts fabulous concentration along with copious notes of pen ink, blueberries, blackberries, and hints of graphite and espresso bean. Deep, full-bodied and...


Robert Foley Claret 2012
Foley’s top wine is the inky/purple-colored 2012 Claret, a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.

Showket Cabernet 2004
This is prime Cabernet Sauvignon country and is a part of Oakville that has certainly attracted some top wineries. Nearby neighbors include Dalla Valle, Oakville Ranch, Tierra Roja and near the base of the mountains you find Screaming Eagle and Rudd.


Soda Canyon Barrel Chaser 2009
The color of this wine instantly grabs you. It hasa wonderful, dark hue with a full expression of ripe black fruit, raspberry and strawberry all melded into one. The nose is wonderfully lifted in the front with an envelope of rhubarb, cola and even a touch of espresso bean.


Somerston Cabernet 2010
A dark, sumptuous wine, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Somerston boasts stunning depth, power and richness. Mocha, chocolate, espresso and cloves flesh out in this intense, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. There is so much fruit, the tannins of the vintage are nearly buried. A full throttle, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 is a gorgeous wine from...


Spottswoode Cabernet 2013
Yields continued to increase in 2013, with just over 4,000 cases of wine from a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. This is another killer effort from Spottswoode. Inky bluish purple to the rim, it has hints of violets intermixed with sweet foresty notes, blackcurrants, chocolate and a touch of subtle smoke and...


Staglin Family Vineyard • Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 30th Anniversary 2012

There is great fruit on the attack and the wine fills out...


Tor Kenward Cabernet Beckstoffer To Kalon 2012
One of my highest ratings goes to the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard.

Everyone who uses this fabulous vineyard seems to create...


Tor Kenward Herb Lamb Cabernet 2014
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Herb Lamb Vineyard comes from the lower hillsides of Howell Mountain. Tor Kenward uses the middle section of this vineyard that was earlier used by Ann Colgin for her Herb Lamb bottlings.

Tor Kenward Tierra Roja Cabernet 2014
The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Tierra Roja came in out-of-bottle at the top of its range, which is always a good sign.

This is a sexy, beautiful, fragrant wine with plenty of scorched earth, blackcurrants and licorice, but copious quantities of...

Tor Rock Syrah Napa 2013
The nose just explodes with sage, grilled meat, black pepper and sweet tobacco. On the palate this wine is very rich and full bodied. This shows mostly black fruit, dried herbs and BBQ spices. The finish on this sails on forever and only starts to taper off after 40 seconds. This is a Syrah to take and enjoy with your best friends or pair with...


Tuck Beckstoffer Wines • Dancing Hares Proprietary Red 2015
The 2015 Dancing Hares Proprietary Red, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, is very deep purple-black in color with a nose of spice cake, plum pudding, crème de cassis, cigar box, licorice and menthol with a waft of dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, fresh and concentrated with firm, fine-grained tannins, it...


Vineyard 29 Aida Estate Cabernet 2013
On the valley floor, with an almost Châteauneuf du Pape layer of small stones, is the Aida Estate, one of my favorite vineyards just north of St. Helena. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in three-fourths new French oak. The good news is that there...


Vineyard 29 Cru Cabernet 2012
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Cru, which is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest the other four Bordeaux varietals, comes from many different vineyards and the good news is there were nearly 6,000 cases of this wine that was aged 18 months in a combination of 50% new and 50% once-used French oak. The vineyard sources essentially span the entire...
