  1. Cadence Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain 2014
  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. Franciscan Estate Magnificat Proprietary Red, Napa Valley 2012

    Franciscan Estate Magnificat Proprietary Red, Napa Valley 2012

    95 Points The Tasting Panel - Aged for 20 months in 70% new oak, this is one of California's original Meritage blends, a wine produced since 1985 - and one of my all-time favorites. The 73% Cabernet Sauvignon (followed by Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc) is named for Bach's masterpiece. Dark fruit and dry coffee tannins align with its fine acidity which brighten and livens the nose and palate. An underlying earthiness with plum and cassis balances it out. Still so youthful - she will age with grace.- Merideth May

    90 Points Wine Spectator - Firm and complex, with enticing aromas of dark and red berry, spice, cedar and graphite...Ends long and fruity.- J.L. Learn More

  8. Franciscan Magnificat Red Blend 2014

    Franciscan Magnificat Red Blend 2014

    96 points Tasting Panel - The royal carmine hue makes this wine look all the more stately. First introduced in 1985, this Meritage blend continues to cast a spell and blends all five Bordeaux grape varieties. The mélange consists of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cab Franc from lots off the 240-acre Oakville Franciscan Estate vineyard. The wine spent 20 months in oak. The aromas triggered a mountain forest: sage, jasmine, truffle and cherry wood. I salute this particular vintage for its fleshy, satiny texture with a firm structure. Flavors are layered with cinnamon, lavender, blueberry-boysenberry and caramel-mocha coffee.

    91 points James Suckling - A fruit-forward style but not one that's overdone with plenty of plum and currant character. Full body and a velvety finish. Blend of mostly cabernet with merlot, malbec, petit verdot and cabernet franc. Learn More

  9. Lyeth Estate Meritage, Sonoma County 2014
  10. Ramey Wine Cellars Claret 2014

    Ramey Wine Cellars Claret 2014

    Ramey Claret follows the Bordelaise model of blending different Bordeaux varietals. Malolactic fermentation is completed in barrel, and the blend is assembled early so it is “elevated” as the finished wine. Our 2014 Claret rested on its lees twelve months in French & American oak barrels, only 7% new, with monthly bâtonnage to coat the tannins, producing a luscious, cushioned mouthfeel. This wine was lightly fined with egg whites and bottled without filtration in January 2016. Winemaker's Notes: This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring. Blend: 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 3% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Learn More
