Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Product #31458 (In Stock)
Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014 Rutherford Ranch Two Range Red 2014

Our first thought on tasting this robust blend of Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah was, "Wow - this tastes like a pretty darn good $25 red blend."  At better than 20% under that, it's better still!  Delivers a bold  mouthful of dark berry and black cherry fruit framed in generous French oak flavors (vanilla, chocolate, spice) and a smooth, rich, finish.  Perfect with roasts and steaks or just to sip.

Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015 Product #31689 (In Stock)
Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015 Osso Anna Chardonnay Napa Valley 2015

We're not really sure what's up with the label here and we haven't learned anything interesting about the winery or winemaker.  But we certainly appreciated what was in the glass - a big, bold, butter and hazelnut-laced mouthful of Napa Valley Chardonnay!  Bold aromas and flavors of pear, apple and stone fruit are given more depth by notes of buttered caramelized nuts.  Mouthfilling and rich, this comes into a nice, refreshing, focus on the buttery, nutty, but all the way dry finish.  Old-school California Chardonnay fun here!

The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 Product #31334 (In Stock)
The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014 The Dude Napa Proprietary Red 2014

This is an unknown wine with a fantastic pedigree.  Winemaker Neil Koch learned red wine making from Philippe Melka at Seavy, Vineyard 29 and Bryant family before making Cabernet and Chardonnay at Lewis Cellars.  Today, he’s a wine broker in Napa, which gives him plenty of insight into the best places in the Valley to get outstanding (if under-priced) grapes.  His 2014 The Dude blends Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (27%) and Petite Verdot (7%) from vineyards in Calistoga, Rutherford, Carneros and Oak Knoll.  The northern sites give power and flesh; the cooler, southern, vineyards add brightness, freshness, and keep the alcohol at a very palatable 14.1%.

Opens beautifully with 30 minutes of air. Rich, dark aromas of black and red currant, blackberry, chocolate, cedar, herb and spice burst from the glass.  Take a sip and you’ll love how it pumps out dark fruit, bitter-sweet chocolate, crushed herb, and baking spice flavors that completely fill your mouth.  There’s plenty of luxury here, but also a fine freshness and vigor as the flavors drive on through the finish before expanding with a pop of late arriving flavors.  Just 1,200 cases made. Smooth, rich, flavorful, and delicious now – 2024.

Old-school Napa Zinfandel here from vineyards at 1,000 - 1,200 feet overlooking the ruined walls of the grist wills built by pioneer J.B. Chiles. A big, bold, Zinfandel with plenty of tangy, just picked, briary berry fruit and accents of mountain flowers and smoke.  It's fresh and clean, with plenty of body and rich fruit, but also a pure, long, Zinny finish.

A solid wine takes a BIG step up in 2015 in the richest, deepest, and more robust version of this great value Napap Caberent we've seen yet.  A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon from Oak Knoll and Mt Veeder plus 6% Merlot and a splash of Petite Sirah with a nice lash of French and American oak.  A Caymus-like texture - plush, rich, chocolaty - with lavish flavors of back berries, currant, milk chocolate, fresh herb and oodles of spice.  Finishes with a gush of dark fruit, vanilla and spice over velvety tannins.  An outstanding value.

The name says it well here in this excellent, classically styled, Napa Merlot.  Spicy red currant and smoke aromas lead to a nicely rich mouthful of blackberry and black currant fruit with accents of spice and smoke.  A dash of Cabernet adds complexity. Full and fleshy with a smooth, food-friendly, finish leaving just a hint of tobacco and oak spice lingering.  Textbook Merlot indeed!

Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012 Balius Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve Block 2012

Another winner from Napa's hugely successful 2012 harvest, this 95% Cabernet aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months.  It's a stylish Napa Cabernet, with loads of redcurrant, berry, and currant fruit accented by notes of coffee, chocolate, cedar, and tobacco.  Delicious from first sip, this gains length and depth with air, with more coffee/mocha notes emerging over the fine-grained tannins.  Tastes like a $50+ bottle and ready now with steak and lamb.

Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012 Carne Humana Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Named for a giant, pre-statehood ranch that stretched from Rutherford to Calistoga, this is Joe Wagner's take on a traditional California field blend.  Napa Valley Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, Petite Verdot and Syrah ferment and age together for 18 months in French oak.  Big aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice, cherry and black pepper.  Then bold flavors of tobacco, cherry pie, licorice and lots of super-ripe dark fruit with a touch of sweet oak on the finish.  Bold stuff for big food!

Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014 Product #31477 (In Stock)
Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014 Cakebread Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014

As you'd expect from this estate, here's a right down the middle, classically styled, Napa Sauvignon Blanc - or "Fume Blanc" as Robert Mondavi christened the style.  A blend of 90% Sauivgnon Blanc, 6% Semillon and 4% Sauvignon Musque (for extra aromatics), all aged 5 months in neutral barrel.  Big aromas of sweet citrus, tropical fruit and fresh flowers lead to mouth-filling flavors of grapefruit, green melon, white peachh and a hint of smokey herb.  Finishes clean and crisp and dry.

Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31539 (In Stock)
Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Quilt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014

Joe Wagner calls this Quilt because it’s made from a patchwork of vineyards across Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon regions:   Oakville, St. Helena, Atlas Peak, Coombsville, Calistoga and Howell Mountain. There’s no mistaking the Caymus and Belle Glos heritage in the wine’s rich fruit, mouthfilling size and plush velvet texture.  Twenty months in barrel (70% new) adds generous does of sweet spice, cocoa and vanilla aromas and flavors and softens Cabernet Sauvignon’s sometimes astringent tannins. 

Here’s Joe's tasting note:  “Quilt Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is a seamless blend of cassis, hazelnut, cocoa, blackberry preserves and charred meat with complex notes of dark licorice, stewed rhubarb, strawberry, spice and vanillin. Rich and satisfying on the palate with decadent chocolate brownie, yogurt, and molasses flavors in perfect balance with higher-toned fruit emphasis.”  We’d add that the wine’s length and balance are especially impressive, and you’ll love drinking this with grilled/roasted meats or all by itself.

Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013 Product #31416 (In Stock)
Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013 Flora Springs Napa Valley Red 2013

Flora Springs crafts their Napa Red blend from Cabernet Sauvignon (52%) and Merlot (20%) plus Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc lots grown for Trilogy plus a nice dose (17%) of rich, meaty, Syrah.  In the great 2013 vintage, there's a lot going on here, starting with bold aromas of black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, sage, and baking spice.  The spice - clove and allspice - shows on the palate and finish, too, giving complexity to the ripe black cherry and red currant fruit and accents of cedar and savory herb.  A nicely chewy finish gives this the heft for steak or lamb, but the wine stays silky enough to drink most anytime you're craving a rich Napa blend.

Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015 Product #31098 (In Stock)
Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015 Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc Napa 2015

Always one of California's very best Sauvignon Blancs (last vintage rated 94 points by WE!), the 2015 delivers the goods again. A big slug of aromatic Sauvignon Musque gives an exotic note to the passion fruit, lemon pulp, pear and white peach fruit and lifts the aromas and flavors nicely.  A touch of wood gives this smoky complexity but doesn't detract from the firm, fresh, crisp, finish.

Honig Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2014 Product #31607 (In Stock)

Other than the label update a few years ago, not much has changed at this family-owned winery in Rutherford. Sustainably farmed fruit, gentle winemaking, and rich American oak give this depth and power with a supple, drink now, finish.

"Lots of brambleberry, dark-chocolate and walnut character. Medium to full body, soft and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious now."  James Suckling 90 points

Oh, so THIS is why folks used to get excited about Napa Merlot!  There's already some maturity to the aromas, with lots of redcurrant, cured tobacco, rose petal, cedar and spice notes that reprise on the elegant, silky, palate and linger long and sweet on the finish.  Just 13.5% abv, perfectly ripe, and utterly compelling, this tastes as much like mature Bordeaux or old Rioja as anything else. Very exciting.

Proof that moderate abv doesn't mean loss of ripeness, richness, or yumminess.

"A super attractive, mid-weight wine, the estate's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up a classic expression of Rutherford. Sweet red cherry, iron, smoke and chocolate are all pushed forward, followed by a kick of energy that punctuates the finish. Exuberant and racy, with fabulous intensity, the 2013 is showing beautifully today. Despite its openness today, the 2013 has the pedigree to drink well for many years."  Vinous (Galloni) 93 points
