1988 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
1988 Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "... The 1988 Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a dark color, plenty of oak in the nose, medium body, very good concentration, and a short, soft finish. (RP)" (10/2003) Wine Spectator: "Pure Caymus, only on a slightly muted scale. The currant, plum, dried cherry, anise and spicy flavors are neatly layered, and the texture and tannins are smooth and polished. Shows fine balance and depth of flavor. (JL)" (11/1998)

2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia New!
2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Impenetrable colour; a full-bodied palate, stacked to the gills with layer-upon-layer of blackberry, prune, licorice and plum fruit, yet the tannin and oak are not overdone, nor is the alcohol." (7/2008) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Shows a slightly lifted, peppery character on the nose, but also plenty of toasty oak and bold fruit. Loads of blackberries, blueberries and chocolate cascade over the palate, accented with enough spice and warmth to leave a fleeting impression of fruitcake. Lush and long on the finish. Drink now-2020 or beyond. (JC)" (11/2007) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet, the 2006 Amon-Ra ...Read More »

2001 Ramey "Jericho Canyon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top wine, the Jericho Canyon Proprietary Red, emerges from a vineyard northeast of Calistoga. The inky/purple-colored 2001 Jericho Canyon Proprietary Red offers up a sumptuous perfume of licorice, espresso roast, graphite, blackberries, and currants. Unctuously-textured, with tremendous purity, high tannin, and a long finish, it reminds me of the old style vintages of Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon from the late sixties to the mid-seventies.

2003 Antinori Tignanello Toscana Back In Stock!
2003 Antinori Tignanello Toscana

92 points Vinous: "Antinori’s 2003 Tignanello (85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) is a terrific effort. Typical Sangiovese notes of red cherries, tobacco and underbrush dominate the flavor profile of this intensely flavored Tignanello that manages to be ripe and open, while retaining notable balance and freshness, although the tannins dry out a bit on the back end. This is a delicious Tignanello to enjoy now and over the next decade. The high altitude of the vineyards was clearly an asset in 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018."

90 points Vinous: "Ridge's 2013 Zinfandel Paso Robles, from the Benito Dusi Ranch, exudes Paso warmth and richness. Unquestionably racy and overt, the 2013 offers striking depth and intensity, with a slightly roasted, sweet quality to the fruit. Sweet tobacco, cedar and dried herbs add closing shades of nuance, but the 2013 remains quite opulent in style. Still, all the elements are in the right place. The 2013 could use a few years to soften. It will be appreciated most by readers who enjoy intense, super-ripe Zinfandels. (AG)" (7/2015) K&L Notes: The Benito Dusi Ranch in Paso Robles ...

Espresso, mocha, rose petals and spices wrap around the radiant finish. This is such a gorgeous example of the year and one of the truly great sites in Napa Valley. The Reserve gets most of the attention at Plumpjack, but in the 2012, the straight Cabernet Sauvignon is nearly as stellar.

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Editors' Choice** This complex Syrah and (with a little Zin) showcases both varieties at their western Paso Robles best. The Syrah is rich in dark berry-cherry and mocha flavors, while the Cabernet adds cassis and a nice tannic structure. I’m not sure what the 4 % of Zin brings, maybe a wild, peppery note.

(10/2016) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Reticent but pure aromas of fruit salad, spices and vanilla, lifted by floral and mineral nuances.

Possibly the sexiest Nigori we have ever tasted. You don't usually see Nigori at a Ginjo level! This is sleek and delightfully light.

2006 L'Aventure "Optimus" Paso Robles Red Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Optimus consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Syrah, and 5% Petit Verdot. It reveals the exuberance of a northern Rhone, but the structure of a top Bordeaux. It is more elegant, but less understated and concentrated than the 2005. Notes of chocolate, coffee, blackberries, and tar are present in both the aromatics and attack, but then the wine closes down, displaying plenty of structure, muscle, and tannin. This 2006 clearly needs several years of bottle age to round into shape. (RP)" (6/2008) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky purple.

(JS)" (5/1999) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect success for Cantemerle and one of the most monumental wines of the last 40 years, the 1989 Cantemerle remains a dense ruby color with plenty of purple in its mid-section.

100 points James Suckling: "For me, this redefines Pavie. The depth and intensity and more important, the clarity, is really something. Full and ultra-fine tannins. It shows such great tannins and finesse. It is the essences of Pavie." (4/2016) 96-98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Pavie is a blend of 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured in 80% new oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. It has a really quite glorious bouquet that is sensual and very well defined and pure.

Rich, ample and textured, the 2012 is full of intensity. The contours are quite soft, though, which makes the 2012 unusually gentle and tamed for a young Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.

(3/2016) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Larrivet Haut Brion might be overlooked against some startling other 2015s with "Haut Brion" in their name, which would be wholly unfair because this is a potentially great wine.

The only wine to see new oak, it spends roughly 11-16 months in 40% new French oak prior to bottling. It offers incredible notes of graphite, olive tapenade, white pepper and decadent levels of black raspberry that flow beautifully to a full-bodied Syrah that has a huge mid-palate, plenty of tannin and a monster finish. It should have 10-12 years or longevity. (JD)" (8/2015) 91-93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard is a big, bombastic wine. Tens ...Read More »

Explosive, deep and powerful, the 2015 possesses remarkable richness and intensity. A host of black cherry, smoke, gravel, menthol, tar and licorice notes abound. I tasted the 2015 four times over two weeks. During that time, the wine seemed to acquire more and more freshness as well as finesse.

Darkly concentrated and rich, it sets the stage beautifully for 2009 Barolo thanks to its enormous grace, power and elegance. Where it really wins praise, however, is in the mouth.

Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s easy to imagine the winemaker singling out the most tannic and concentrated lots, but what you get is, simply, a very tannic wine. There’s a gigantic core of blackberry and black currant fruit, but it’s hard to appreciate because of the astringency. The suggestion is longterm aging, but there can be no guarantees.

It juxtaposes lots of ripe cherries and deep, cassis-like fruit with elements of milk chocolate, vanilla and cream-sweetened coffee in its very long and nicely layered flavors."

2003 Domaine de la Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Even better, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin was smoking good, with awesome herbes de Provence, pepper, garrigue and sweet Grenache-driven fruit. Full-bodied and rich, with sweet tannin, I loved it, and would plan on drinking bottles over the coming couple of years as well. (JD)" (8/2014) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Lilting, perfumy style, with alluring violet, raspberry, black cherry and plum notes that glide across the palate. This gains intensity through the finish, picking up the vintage's tarry aspect, yet stays remarkably fresh and Burgundian in style. Best from 2006 ...Read More »

2008 Pavie-Decesse, St-Emilion (Previously $149)

94 points James Suckling: "Lovely fruit with chocolate and berries and raspberries. Full and round fine silky and elegant. Very fresh and long. Beautiful. I like the freshness. Try it in four to five years." (12/2010) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another top-notch effort, the 2008 is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc produced from yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare. It reached 14% natural alcohol, no doubt because of the extremely late harvest. A deep purple color is accompanied by massive notes of blackberries, incense, fruitcake, camphor and toasty oak intermixed with a crushed chalk-like mineral ...Read More »

2013 Tensley "Tensley Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah Back In Stock!
2013 Tensley "Tensley Vineyard" Santa Barbara County Syrah

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Starting off the 2013s and the first vintage, the 2013 Syrah Tensley Vineyard comes from the newly planted (4th leaf fruit) vineyard planted around Tensley’s house. Showing notions of smoked beef, leather and licorice to go with a core of plum and currant fruit, this full-bodied, deep and textured effort will drink nicely on release and over the following 5-7 years, possibly longer. This is another great lineup by Joey Tensley. He has a couple new releases in the lineup (Syrah 27m and the Tensley Vineyard), and his single vineyard releases continue to o ...Read More »

2009 Patz & Hall "Pisoni Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2009 Patz & Hall "Pisoni Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep red. Subdued, slightly wild nose hints at redcurrant, cherry, licorice, menthol and clove. At once dense and juicy, with primary fruit flavors in the deep background today. This serious Pinot has excellent lift but comes across as uncompromisingly dry today and in need of patience. The tight finish features substantial tannins. A bit of a cipher today, but structured to age." (5/2011) Wine Spectator: "Trim and spicy, a bit subdued yet complex and layered. Offers a mix of cola, dried berry, sassafras and cedar notes, ending with a touch of licorice and mineral. ...Read More »

Bright red fruit, flowers and spices are some of the notes that flow from the glass in this seductive, radiant Cabernet Sauvignon. The supple, silky finish is impossible to resist. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)" (12/2011)

2006 Justin "Isosceles" Reserve Paso Robles Red Blend

Wine Enthusiast: "Very ripe, almost overripe, with an edge of raisins. But the structure of tannins and acids is fine, and the pruniness acts as a foil against the blackberries, cherries and cedar wood. Drink now." (10/2009) K&L Notes: Notes from the producer's website: "The highest expression of JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery is our ISOSCELES Reserve. Sourced entirely from our home estate vineyard planted in 1981 this wine reflects the pinnacle of our efforts. Vines planted on native root stock, in nutrient depleted soils, dry farmed and hand harvested produce tiny yields that are big on ... Read More »

The texture is seamless, gliding along gracefully, showing subtle hints of maturity and nuance. Drink now through 2022. (JL)" (2/2013) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Pinot Noirs will undoubtedly shut down with another year of bottle age, but for now, the 2007 Pinot Noir Three Sisters Vineyard reveals an intense fruit presence. Lots of plum sauce, fig, black cherry, Asian spice and floral notes make for a complex wine. In the mouth, it is medium ...Read More »

(JL)" (2/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The brilliant 2007 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge reveals a DRC character with notes of forest floor, blueberries and raspberries. Riper and richer than anything but the greatest vintages of DRC (i.e., 1990, 1999, 2003 and 2005), it reveals sweet, broad flavors, ripe tannins and a long, layered ...Read More »

94 points Vinous: "(14.6% alcohol; mostly from Seven Hills; 85% new oak): Saturated medium ruby. Less showy on the nose than the Cabernet Sauvignon, with brooding but very ripe aromas of black cherry, mocha, dusty rose and violet. Compellingly sweet and fine-grained, with deep black cherry and dark berry flavors complicated by an element of Belgian chocolate that carries through the very long, building finish. Tannins saturate the palate and cheeks. This is less harmonious today than the Cabernet Sauvignon bottling but longer on the aftertaste. Chris Figgins described 2013 ...Read More »

2014 Aubert "Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons has a greenish hue to its light-gold color, a fresh, lively nose of poached pears, citrus oil, honeysuckle, a hint of pineapple and tangerine. This is a beautiful, full-bodied Chardonnay to drink over the next decade or more. Mark Aubert continues to set the bar incredibly high for the world-class quality of his Burgundian-styled, remarkable Chardonnays...As I indicated last year, Aubert is at the top of his game, and it is hard to believe any Chardonnay winemaker in the world is turning out a half-dozen Chardonnays ...Read More »

90-92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Here too a background application of oak is visible on the intensely earthy and beautifully complex nose of both red and blue Pinot fruit, earth, violet and plum scents. There is good size, weight and power to the relatively supple mid-palate though the firm core of tannins is apparent on the moderately austere and impressively long finish. This is very Nuits in character but not unduly rustic or rough. Drink 2021+." (1/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and smoky, exhibiting cherry and currant flavors underscored by lively acidity.

Juicy, mineral-laced red and dark berry flavors gain power and structure with air, picking up notes of anise, allspice and clove. The spiciness extends through a very long, sappy and gently sweet finish. Built to age but offers a lot of complexity right now.

Dark ruby-colored, it displays a bouquet of cigar box, pencil lead, violets, black currant, and a hint of licorice. Medium to full-bodied, intensely fruited, and with enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, this lengthy effort will drink well from 2011 to 2018. (JM)" (10/2009) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a Bordeaux blend based on 77% Cabernet Sauvignon) Good deep ruby-red. Nose dominated by cassis, mocha and nutty oak.
