Alain Corcia Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Raphael 2010 90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Also firm, yet with more back-end substance, the 2010 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Raphael offers up loads of dark berry fruits, licorice, toasted spice and smoke to go with a medium to full-bodied, concentrated palate. Give it another 2-3 years of bottle age and enjoy through 2022. Drink 2015-2022.

Belle Glos Dairyman Vineyards Pinot Noir

The vineyard sites in the southern alluvial plains of Russian River Valley nearby the ocean, which results in cooling fog coming through the Petaluma Gap both in the morning and the evening, along with afternoon breezes, helping to soften the effects of the warm sun. The combination of the vigor rootstock and alluvial soil, stress control of the vines, and the cool coastal climate, create a long growing season with small, concentrated, flavorful berries.  Dark in hue, rich and dense, this offers a potent mix of berry pie flavors that are lively, complex and well-oaked. Quite harmonious, with the fruit and creamy wood scents in sync.

Hall Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 09

The HALL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of special lots from estate vineyards along with esteemed fruit from their premiere Napa Valley vineyard partners. Their focus, from vine to glass, is to deliver a dense, supple Cabernet Sauvignon that consistently over-delivers.

90 Points “In a league of its own when it comes to cost and availability… Well-built, with a firm core of dark berry, cherry and wilted rose, showing good density and intensity. This gains depth and holds focus, ending with ripe, chewy tannins. Drink now through 2022.” -James Laube, Wine Spectator

90 Points “Pure aromas of redcurrant, loam and licorice. Pliant and sweet, offering good texture and extract to its flavors of plum, currant, mocha and brown spices. Finishes with broad, sweet tannins and a drop of milk chocolate.” -Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

Spence Howell Mountain Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 07

The 2007 Howell Mountain is 100% estate grown Cabernet. Harvested on October 11th, 2007 and bottled in August of 2009. It has been aged in French oak barrels for 20 months, from 4 different coopers, adding a beautiful complexity to the wine.

The first impression of this wine is tones of black stone fruit and cherry cordial.  On the palate it follows through with red and black raspberry, blueberry, currant, and finishes with hints of mocha and crème brulee. It is elegantly balanced with fine integrated tannins and delicious ripe fruit.  The 2007 is a stellar wine and true expression of their unique vineyard.

Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet 2009
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 92
Dunn’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is loaded with blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, asphalt, melted road tar and smoke. A dark, juicy wine, the 2009 is surprisingly open for a young Dunn Cabernet Sauvignon. In this vintage, Dunn’s Lake Vineyard, the last parcel on the property to ripen, accounts for nearly 50% of the blend. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet 2009
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 96
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain has more energy and focus than the Napa Valley bottling. Iron, graphite, red fruits, dried flowers are some of the many notes that take shape in this deep, complex, powerful wine. I imagine the 2009 will still be spectacular at age 30. For now, it needs at least another handful of years of cellaring to drink well. Huge veins of minerality support the huge fruit, giving the wine much of its pure tension and vitality. This is going to be a fascinating wine to follow over the coming decades. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039.

Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro

Intense ruby red. The nose Riserva Ducale immediately shows an outstanding elegance, characterised by particularly fragrant flowery and fruity notes. Violet, cherries, wild berries and plums meet with delicately spicy hints of tobacco and white pepper grains, followed by elegant scents of red roses and flint. Notes of fragrant fresh fruit are accompanied by steady yet gentle tannins, that exalt enjoyable spicy hints. The whole tasting sensation is enriched by a persistent finish, that is incredibly fresh and pleasantly mineral and presents an aftertaste with fascinating notes of rosemary.

Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon follows up on its deep, dark garnet color and ruby edge with lifted and pretty aromas of clove, cinnamon, hints of cedar, mint chocolate, and toasty oak notes that beautifully frame dark fruit. Compelling flavors of cassis, blackberry, and plum along with black pepper, cedar, and clove spices adds life to this medium-to-full bodied nicely structured wine that finishes with rich dark cocoa tannins. Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 1% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc.

Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon

Joint venture with winemaker from Simi Vineyards, Steve Reeder, and musician Dave Matthews.

“When you’re working with Dave, you want to make sure whatever you’re doing has soul. The rhythm of our North Coast Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon highlights classic aromas of blackberry, cherry and herbal notes wrapped by toasted vanilla. It’s an easy-drinking wine with a lot of character.â€â€”Steve Reeder
