  1. Alpha Omega 'ERA' Red, Napa Valley 2013

    Alpha Omega 'ERA' Red, Napa Valley 2013

    98 points Wine Advocate - Alpha Omega's flagship wine, the 2012 Proprietary Red Blend ERA, fashioned from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, flirts with perfection. Its inky/purple color is followed by notes of incense, camphor, melted licorice, blackberry and cassis fruit. Super-concentrated with no hard edges, this is a seamless, complex, compelling Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with exquisite ripeness, purity and texture. It should drink well for 15-20 years.

    Swiss-born Jean Hoefliger had plenty of experience in Bordeaux and working with Michel Rolland at Newton Vineyards before taking over the reins at Alpha Omega. He has hit pay-dirt with the 2012s, the finest vintage I have tasted from this ambitious winery located on Route 29, south of St. Helena. They have some great vineyard sources for their Cabernet Sauvignon, particularly the range of Beckstoffer-owned, first-growth quality sites spread throughout Napa. Learn More

  2. Alpha Omega II Proprietary Red 2013

    Alpha Omega II Proprietary Red 2013

    This wine is a mashed strawberry red with hints of royal red in color and contains aromas of fresh tarragon, basil and black olive with boysenberry, raspberry and red cherry evolving on cranberry jam and macerated strawberry. On the palate, this wine is an explosion of strawberry, blackberry and black cherry with cedar lingering on tannins and plum jam. Learn More

  4. Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2006

    Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2006

    It is a warm, plump, plush wine. It has a nice mouth-filling texture-not exactly silky, but "This wine talks to you." But, I would add, you have to listen. It is a quiet wine. It doesn't say, "Take me now," although you can. The nose is subtle and roasted. It speaks of a warm sun and ripe fruit-with no hint of overripe dried fruit, or "jamminess." The palate tells the same story with its full, plush tannins that slip right down without grabbing at the back of your throat. Learn More

  5. Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2012

    Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2012

    97 points James Suckling - 2012 was the first and possibly the best in a series of three excellent vintages that rival the best of the last three decades. Growing conditions were just about ideal, and the vines responded beautifully with just the right amount of grapes that they were able to bring to just the right degree of ripeness at just the right moment. In terms of character, this wine has it in spades, with Cain Vineyard written all over it. You'll find it from the first nose, of seductive, aromatic, green perfume, to the very end of the finish - especially the very long, complex finish, with beautifully polished texture. The wine drinks beautifully in its youth. Round, plump, juicy, savory, and yes, even fruity. This is a very complex wine that will reward a long meal as it develops in the glass. Today, to enjoy this wine in its optimal state, pour it into a carafe or decanter, give it some air and this sleepy giant will come to life! Learn More

  6. Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2013

    Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five, Spring Mountain District 2013

    96 points James Suckling - A fragrant but savoury bouquet of perfumed blackberry, rich earth, fennel seed and cigar tobacco leads to a wine with lovely cut, vibrancy and concentration, structured around firm but refined 2013 tannins. Christopher Howell deserves more recognition for the amazing consistency, longevity and sophistication that his wines from this striking Spring Mountain site routinely achieve, as anyone with Cain bottlings in their cellar from the 1980s and 1990s can attest.

  7. Chappellet Mountain Cuvee, Napa Valley 2015

    Chappellet Mountain Cuvee, Napa Valley 2015

    Blended from the traditional Bordeaux varietals, including our own coveted grapes, the Chappellet Mountain Cuvee Proprietor’s Blend builds on our five decades of experience crafting great Napa County mountain-grown wines. Each component varietal in the cuvee contributes nuances that complement each other. The result is a complex array of aromas and flavors that deliver pure pleasure in a glass.

  8. Chateau St Jean 'Cinq Cepages' Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County 2012

    Chateau St Jean 'Cinq Cepages' Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County 2012

    93 points Vinous - The 2012 Cinq Cepages is plump, juicy and forward. Dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, menthol, mocha and dark spices are all pushed forward. This is a decidedly radiant, supple Cinq Cepages that should provide readers with a good decade-plus of fine drinking. As always, Cinq Cepages is bold, racy and fruit-driven in style. Chateau St. Jean and winemaker Margo Van Staaveren excel with a range of wines that deliver an appealing combination of quality and availability, with many wines that are also budget friendly. As always, there is a real stylistic difference between the whites and reds here, that suggests the wines are made for two totally different audiences. The whites are crisp and vibrant, often with partially blocked malos, while the reds are much more opulent and flamboyant. (AG) Learn More

  9. Coho Headwaters Napa Valley Red Wine 2012

    Coho Headwaters Napa Valley Red Wine 2012

    The 2012 Proprietary Red Blend Headwaters (2,432 cases) is a juicy, dark-fruited effort with good purity and ripeness, but little complexity. It offers good fruit and body, but lacks that extra nuance and character that makes the taster want to have a second glass. Nevertheless, I like what’s there. Learn More

  10. Dry Creek Vineyard The Mariner Meritage, Dry Creek Valley 2012

    Dry Creek Vineyard The Mariner Meritage, Dry Creek Valley 2012

    92 points Wine Enthusiast - Cabernet Sauvignon makes up the majority of this Meritage, with 25% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The blending succeeds in offering a mix of chalky tannins and juicy cassis, with the wine structured and fairly elegant in style. Pencil lead and licorice mark the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2020. Learn More
