The 2010 Howell Mountain is simply magnificent. Inky, deep, and full-bodied to the core, the 2010 blasts out of the glass with graphite, pencil shavings, menthol, melted road tar, plum, cassis and licorice notes. The 2010 is an exciting, viscerally thrilling wine that takes hold of the sense and never lets up. Today, it is firing on all cylidners. The Howell Mountain is the only Abreu wine that incorporates Malbec, a variety that seems to work magic here. The 2010 is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec and 5% Merlot.

Abreu vineyards is named after the founder, David Abreu. David Abreu earned his reputation as one of the top vineyard managers in Napa.  Abreu followed his father and grandfather in the profession of vineyard management and has worked with countless growers in Napa including: Harlan Estate, Colgin Cellars, Staglin Family Vineyards, Blankiet Estate, Bressler Vineyards, Pahlmeyer Vineyards, Sloan Estate, Grace Family and numerous other well-known California wineries. In fact, it’s harder to find a top vineyard in the Napa Valley that David Abreu is not involved with. As of 2011, Abreu controls close to 70 acres of prime, vineyard land in Napa.  Abreu Vineyards currently produces 5 wines, Madrona Ranch, Thorevilos, Capella, Howell Mountain and Rothwell Hyde. All the wines of Abreu Vineyards are California Cabernet Sauvignon based.

David Abreu is a perfectionist with all his clients vineyards and his property is no exception.  Similar to how Chateau Haut Brion in Pessac Leognan picks, Abreu prefers harvesting in the early morning, taking advantage of the cooler temperatures. The fruit is sorted twice, before and the fruit is fermented with whole berries. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in 100% new, French, oak barrels where it remains for two  years before bottling. They hold the wine of Abreu Vineyards for an additional two years before offering it to an eager list of customers that purchase directly from him.

Another key to the success of Abreu Vineyards is the Brad Grimes, the wine maker of Abreu. It’s the combination of Brad Grimes, David Abreu and the vineyards that produce one of the top wines from Napa. Stylistically, the wine is elegant, balanced and refined, yet it possess copious amounts of perfectly ripe fruit and silky tannins. Big, rich and ripe, but never over the top, this is a great example of what Napa does best.

Perhaps the greatest compliment I can pay the 2010 Rothwell Hyde, Abreu's rarely seen second wine, is that Brad Grimes served it last in our tasting and it more than held it's own. Sure, there is plenty of vintage 2010 pedigree, along with the typical Abreu textural richness, but it is the wine's overall balance that leaves the most lasting impression. Rothwell Hyde is made from a selection of the wines that don't go into the four main labels and is sold mostly through the mailing list and in a few select restaurants. If you see the 2010, grab it.

David Abreu's 2010 Thorevilos stands apart from all of the other wines in this range for its massive, inky concentration. It is also the last of these wines to be released, which may explain its intense power. A host of graphite, smoke, incense, tobacco, spice and black fruit gradually open up, but the 2010 is a wine for the future. I won't touch another bottle until at least age ten, even though that is almost certainly not going to be enough time to find the wine at its peak of expression.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Clajeux Vineyard is a superb example of the Chalk Hill appellation. Graphite, smoke, grilled herbs, black fruit, game and savory herbs meld together in a dense, powerful, intensely mineral-driven Cabernet Sauvignon. A very slight touch of brett gives the Clajeux much of its distinctive Old World personality. As long as readers know what to expect, the Clajeux is a wine full of personality. The Arnot-Roberts 2013 Cabernets were all done with 30% whole clusters and aged in 30% new oak.

Arnot-Roberts was founded in 2001 in Healdsburg, California by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Duncan and Nathan grew up in the midst of vineyards and winemakers in the Napa Valley. Each took an interest in the wine industry, with Nathan following his father’s lead as a cooper, and Duncan pursuing winemaking in renowned wineries in Napa and Sonoma.      
The focus of this two person operation is on small lot, single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir, as well as several other varieties uncommon in Northern Californian vineyards. Through good fortune and a keen eye, they have  identified vineyard sources that are both singular and extraordinary. Collaboration with dedicated and passionate growers is paramount in the farming of these sites and vinification of their wines.

The Syrah Clary Ranch is, as it often is, one of the truly great, iconic Syrahs of California.

Black pepper, smoke, graphite, lavender, cloves and licorice open up in a wine with breathtaking aromatic presence, fabulous complexity and exceptional overall balance.

The 2013 Syrah North Coast emerges from a handful of top sites, including La Cruz, Baker Lane, Clary Ranch, Marietta, Griffin's Lair, and, for the first time, Que Syrah. One of the more exuberant, fruit-driven wines readers will taste from Arnot-Roberts, the 2013 Syrah hits the palate with a rush of blue and purplish-toned fruits. Hints of lavender, licorice and cloves add texture to a juicy, forward Syrah endowed with tons of near and medium-term appeal. Saline notes add texture on the finish, but they are nearly buried by the pure luxuriousness of the fruit. What a gorgeous wine this is.

Duncan Arnot and Nathan Roberts have chosen to focus on Sonoma Coast sites, many of which are bottled separately by many other producers, including Solas, Baker Lane, Clary Ranch, Que Syrah and Griffin's Lair, which is why this wine is now labeled Sonoma Coast (previously it was North Coast).

The most impressive Pinot here is the 2012 Pinot Noir Isabelle. A selection of the top barrels, it - like the Knox Alexander release - was barrel fermented and aged 20 months in new French oak, of which it's soaked up every trace. Showing distinctly Burgundian notes of sweet red and black fruits, sous bois, underbrush and spice, it's medium bodied, beautifully textured, elegant and layered, with nicely integrated acidity coming through on the finish. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.

One of the Central Coast’s original pioneers, Jim Clendenen (along with Adam Tolmach) founded Au Bon Climate in 1982. Today, he releases a number of serious reds and whites that all have classic, age-worthy profiles. He’s not afraid of new oak either and these latest releases will benefit from short-term cellaring.

It is difficult to mention Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir without bringing up the Alexander Payne movie Sideways.  The release of the movie could not have come at a better time. Prior to Sideways, Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir was on its way to stardom. A new generation of vineyard managers had come on the scene and many understood what needed to be done in the vineyard to improve Pinot Noir and winemakers were getting a better idea of how to deal with Pinot Noir in the winery. The convergence of better grapes, better winemaking and a very popular and entertaining movie, led to an explosion in the popularity of Pinot Noir and mainly Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir. Even though the movie was a 2004 release, we still feel the effects over a decade later.

Our 2015 Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir is a blend of Pinot Noir from five vineyards: Bien Nacido, Rancho Vinedo, and Le Bon Climat, all which are in the Santa Maria Valley, and two vineyards in the Los Alamos Valley: Los Alamos Vineyard and Kick-On Vineyard. We were lucky enough to usually “be in the right place at the right time” and most lots of grapes were harvested just where we wanted them. After a nice long growing season, we handpicked in the morning to keep the grapes cool. Fermentation took place in five ton, open top tanks. Racking and blending were done the following spring. After a light egg white fining, to eliminate some of the green tannins, the wine was bottled in August after 10 months aging in neutral François Frères French oak barrels.

Our earliest harvest ever for Pinot Noir, the 2015 harvest began in July, with fruit coming from both Le Bon Climat and Bien Nacido Vineyards - and the grapes were ripe! We harvested earlier than ever, but the wines are rich, deep and complex. Pinot Noir is enigmatic and the wines from 2015 just add to the mystery and allure of Pinot Noir. To heighten the experience, we added 4 % Mondeuse produced from our estate planting at Bien Nacido Vineyards. This varietal yields a deeply colored red with high acidity, low ph, and excellent tannin. It enhances our Santa Barbara County Pinot on every level. The juicy, berry fruit and spice flavors make it an ideal partner. A small amount (1.3%) of Valdiguie from Shell Creek Vineyard was mixed with this wine for the first time. Valdiguie used to known as Napa Gamay. The Shell Creek Vineyard is a new vineyard for us, and the grape quality is outstanding. We are excited to be working with this vineyard and expect some great wines in the near future.

Strawberries and blackberries aromas slowly rise out of the glass. Overtime more of the anise and clove will mix with these other aromas. Currently the wine is young with mouth filling intensity and suppleness. Complexity will increase as the wine ages, but this wine should stay “fresh” for 6 or 7 years. Like all Au Bon Climat wines, this is a food wine. In its youth, match this wine with lamb or dried meats. After a few years as the flavors coalesce, it will pair better with salmon or mild red sauce with pasta. We have enjoyed this wine with many food choices from spicy Indian dishes to all-American sandwiches, and the wine worked well with most anything. The possible food pairings are almost endless.

At first relatively supple, the 2009 closes down quickly with air, which suggests it needs at least a few more years in bottle. I also see less of the gravitas than is typical of To Kalon Cabernets. Sweet floral notes and a burst of small red berries inform the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2024.

The generic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is outstanding, and better than the single-vineyard 2011s. Lots of Christmas fruitcake, white chocolate, coffee bean, blackcurrants and sweet dark cherries are all present in this medium to full-bodied, lush, heady wine that’s a reasonably fair value in the luxury-priced scheme of Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa.Bacio Divino, a project of Claus Janzen and his son, offered three vintages of their single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons and a couple generic bottlings, plus other assorted bottlings from their terrific value-priced wines, such as Pazzo. There are also a couple of Burgundy-styled wines made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Dutton Ranch, which I decided to include since they’re the only Sonoma County wines from Bacio Divino.

Elegant and silky, with ripe raspberries, rose petal, underbrush and plenty of spice styled aromas and flavors, the 2011 Pinot Noir Coastview Vineyard (harvested on October 2 and aged 19 months in French oak) is medium-bodied, fresh and pure, with a light, deft texture, juicy acidity and a pure, polished profile. Starting out slightly upfront and fruit-driven with air, it blossoms over the evening and has beautiful complexity and loads of class. Enjoy it over the coming decade.

Based out of the Santa Cruz Mountains, proprietor/owner Bradley Brown fashions a bevy of superb efforts from throughout the Central Coast.

Her produceres vine som afspejler de komplekse nuancer i vinmarkerne og samtidig afspejler det kølige klima, hvor man fornemmer både placeringen tæt på havet og vinmarkernes placering oppe i bjergene. Enhver årgang skal tale sit eget sprog, og naturens volatilitet undertrykkes ikke. Her produceres efter bæredygtige principper og økologiske landbrugsmetoder, og da man samtidig høster små parceller af gangen (alt efter modenhed) og samtidig holder udbytterne nede på et lavt niveau sikres det vigtigste af alt - stor frugt.

Bradley Brown er manden bag vinene. Bradley's personlige mentor og coach var The Rhone Ranger John Alban, og efter tilplantningen af den første vinmark fulgte den første årgang i 2002 - som blev honoreret med 93 point af Robert Parker. Idag produceres der vin fra 16 marker - hvoraf de 5 bliver frigivet som enkeltmarksvine.Alle vinene produceres i meget små mængder.

As one would suspect from the vintage style, the 2012 The Matriarch Proprietary Red Blend is one of the strongest efforts to date for this cuvée. The flamboyant, exuberant nature of the vintage serves this wine well, since it comes from the softer lots. This wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15 or more years. Beautiful fruit such as cassis and blackberry are interwoven with forest floor, charcoal and barbecue smoke, all followed by an elegant, expansive and savory wine with very ripe tannin, adequate acidity, and a long finish. The color is a dense plum/purple and the wine delicious already, as well as complex, but capable of easily lasting 15+ years.

These exceptionally impressive wines from Bill Harlan are all majestic in 2012. There are between 500 and 600 cases of each of these essentially single vineyard wines from five separate micro-climates in Napa Valley, with the exception of the Matriarch, which comes from the barrels and lots culled from the different single vineyards that were considered slightly more forward and less profound than the individual wines. All of them have great singularity and are made with absolutely no compromises. In the great vintages, such as 2012 and no doubt 2013, these wines clearly have 25-35+ years of aging potential. I wouldn’t be surprised in certain years to see them go on for 50 or more years.

The estate’s 2009 Proprietary Blend Melbury presents an intriguing combination of pure sensuality in its aromas and flavors, but backed up by serious tannins. Dark raspberry jam, flowers, sweet spices and crushed rocks all come to life in this deeply expressive, resonant wine. Sweet floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and perfume. In 2009, the Melbury is dazzling. It is also one of the more delicate wines in the lineup Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.  I have been excited about the BOND 2009s since I first tasted them 18 months ago. My enthusiasm for those wines is surpassed only by the 2010s. The 2009s are sexy, radiant and impeccably polished, while the 2010s are more inward, structured and brooding in style. It is impossible not to compare BOND to Bill Harlan’s Harlan Estate. Although I am told the approach to farming and picking is identical in all the vineyards both estates look after, my sense is that the BOND wines are a little more vibrant than Harlan Estate, which tends to occupy a spot a little further out on the ripeness spectrum. It’s hard to know what more there is to say about BOND. These are simply some of the most utterly magnificent wines I have ever tasted, and a true testament that terroir not only exists in Napa Valley, but that these are some of the most privileged sites for making wine anywhere in the world. In my opinion, in top vintages, the St. Eden, which emerges from the red soils of Oakville, and the Vecina, from Vine Hill Ranch, are two of the greatest wines in Napa Valley.

From a 7-acre hillside vineyard overlooking Lake Hennessey, the 2012 Melbury, like its siblings, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new oak for a minimum of 24 to 28 months, then bottled unfiltered. The wine displays beautiful blackberry fruit, some charcoal, loamy soil undertones, forest notes, lots of spice, a full-bodied, multi-dimensional mouthfeel, and a super finish of 45+ seconds. Even in a vintage like 2012, this wine ideally needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should keep for 30+ years.

From an 11-acre vineyard sitting near Bond’s winery and the Harlan estate, the 2012 Vecina Proprietary Red is the perfect Napa version of a hypothetical blend of a La Mission Haut-Brion and Mouton-Rothschild. This is riveting Cabernet Sauvignon with great intensity, a killer fragrance of burning embers, charcoal, gravel, blackberry, cassis and earth. Fabulously intense and full-bodied, with majestic flavor intensity, a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, incredible purity and length, and supple tannins, this magnificent wine comes closest to the great Harlan Estate itself. Drink it over the next 35 years.

THE VINTAGE 
The 2012 vintage is proving to be one of the most exciting years for grape growers and winemakers in recent memory. The year started dry with considerable worry whether there would be sufficient water for the growing season, but record setting rains in late March filled the ponds and saturated the soil providing the vines with the moisture needed for early-season growth. Our grapevines benefitted from warm weather in July and August without any significant heat waves. By mid-summer it was clear that an abundant crop had set and vigorous fruit thinning was required to maintain vine balance and ensure concentration of flavor in each grape. Harvest began around Boonville in mid-September and finished on October 20th, two days before the first rains of the season arrived. The resulting wines of 2012 have striking intensity and balance, and show great promise to be our most age worthy wines yet.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS 
Always the last pick of the season, our 2012 Riesling flavors and aromatics clearly reflect its vineyard’s cool-climate located just six miles from the Pacific Ocean. The nose is full of aromas of green apple, lime zest, wet cement, and struck flint. Flavors of mandarin orange, white peach, and apple are lifted by the bright acidity of this bone dry Riesling. This wine will benefit from a few years of cellaring and will continue to gain complexity for many years to come.

Even more impressive is the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, a richer, fuller wine with the same structural profile as the 2009, but with deeper, more concentrated black currant, licorice, incense and floral characteristics. Deep, pure, textured and multidimensional, this opaque purple-colored 2010 is sensational. Drink it over the next 20 years. Both wines are multi-AVAs from five vineyards spread across Napa Valley.

The third cuvée, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Papa’s Knoll has a seamless integration of tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood. Beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, a dense opaque purple color, wonderful purity, a savory, broad, multilayered mouthfeel make for a stunner and another great value from Buehler Vineyards. This wine should drink well for 15-20 years.

2013 Russian River Chardonnay is born from two vineyards within the Russian River appellation: Wood Vineyard and River Vineyard.
The 2013 vibtage will be fondly remembered for its classic proportions and near perfect ripening season that began with ideal flowering and fruit set and than coaxed to ripeness by a steady stream of moderate sun drenched days and cool foggy nights. Balance and proportions best describe the character of our 2013 Russian River Chardonnay. It displays abundant floral/stone fruit aromas lightly accented by toasty, graham cracker sur-lie qualities. The mouth feel is creamy and full but natural acidity of the Russian River fruit carries this velvet textured package to a long, clean finish.

Tastingnote
The grapes we choose for our 2013 Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Zinfandel are a mix of those off our estate vineyards and grapes from other select Napa Valley high quality, low-yielding vineyards. Dry-farmed for over 26 years, our 4.5 acre estate block consists of mature forty year- old vines which typically give us around 2.5 tons/acre of beautiful hillside Zinfandel fruit. Interspersed among the head-trained vines are a handful of Petite Sirah vines representing perhaps 5% of the total vines in this block. 
 
The 2013 vintage will be fondly remembered for its classic proportions and near perfect ripening season that began with ideal flowering and fruit set and then was coaxed to ripeness by a steady stream of moderate sun drenched days and cool foggy nights. Like 2012, the late light rains of the 2013 harvest season posed no threat to our crop since it was safely tucked away in the winery once they arrived.

Our Zinfandel was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of “new wood”, the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, deeply layered, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottle-aged character, aging for another two to three years is a good option.

Supple, sexy, seamless and elegant, with classic Calera notes of raspberries, mulled cherries, spice and dried soil, it has no hard edges, a core of sweet fruit and a beautiful finish that keeps you coming back to the glass.

It offers a dark ruby color to go with a big, sweet nose of cranberry, wild strawberries, crushed flowers, forest floor and spice. Full-bodied, layered and elegant, with a supple, rounded and sexy texture, it packs plenty of fruit, yet is graceful, beautifully balanced and seamless.

The most weightless and ethereal wine in this lineup, the 2012 Pinot Noir Reed Vineyard speaks above all else to finesse. Rose petal, sweet red berries, orange peel, mint and spices gradually open up in a feminine Pinot long on class. Deceptively medium in body, the 2012 is likely to flesh out a bit more in bottle, although I imagine it will always remain classically restrained in style.

Calera’s Mt. Harlan Vineyards are located in the Gavilan Mountains 25 miles east of the Monterey Bay. The site was chosen for its limestone soils and ideal climate. At an average elevation of 2,200 feet it is among the highest and coolest vineyard sites in California.

Winemakers Notes
Reed Vineyard is such a distinctive site at Calera; the north facing slope makes wines slightly tawny in color and fascinatingly earthy, gamey, floral, brambly and spicy in the bouquet. It’s a very perfumed woodsy wine with cola, dried chili, plum, cassis and rose petal on the palate. The texture is alluring; delicate yet strong like a ballerina. 

Vintage and Winemaking
2012 was one of those ideal growing seasons. The spring temperatures were warm and sunny, and summer temperatures were moderate with clear blue skies. The crop levels were very balanced and allowed us to hang the fruit until the magical time of ripeness. Reed Vineyard was harvested in two passes on October 20th and October 23rd.
Each day’s picking became a separate lot up until shortly before bottling. Each lot was pressed 14 days after harvest, racked by gravity to French oak barrels, then aged without racking in those barrels, 30% new, for eighteen months. The lots were then combined and the resultant wine was bottled without filtration, as always.

They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I’m sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 20-25 years. Amazing! 


Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernets Sauvignons – a “Napa Valley” and the venerable “Special Selection”. Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through “hang time” – a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to “hang” on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine’s fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.


Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus Napa Valley is more representative of a standard Cabernet of Napa Valley, as it is a bit less precocious than the Special Selection, but still delivers big. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Both the “Napa Valley” and “Special Selection” Cabernets are produced under the winemaking hand of Chuck Wagner.

A beautiful ripe, plump, fat and opulent style of Cabernet Sauvignon that Caymus has pioneered, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, loads of juicy blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, low acidity and no real evidence of oak, but a nice, plush, full-bodied opulence. This is irresistible, especially for a Cabernet Sauvignon coming in at 14.9% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next decade or more.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley has a dense opaque purple color, a kiss of blackberry and cassis fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel with ripe tannin and a long finish. It is very Caymus in its immediate accessibility, but has plenty of staying power and depth. This is lush, full, intense and pure.

Wine maker notes
We created this wine to be low in tartness yet abundant in tannins, providing impressions of friendly chock richness. The palate enters rich with sweet, ripe tannins, expanding to a greater breadth of refined textures. The flavor profile includes dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, mocha, leather, brown spice, cedar, vanilla and sweet licorice. The primary goodness of this wine is the presence of balance, with a supple texture, approachable grip and a fruit of the earth essence.

For five generations, my family has lived and loved the Napa Valley. Our grandfather settled here in the 1800s and from that moment forward, we’ve grown to understand there is simply no substitute for an intimate knowledge of the land that only comes by ”living” in the vineyard. Working the land with our own hands has given us insights into California winemaking that can’t be found in any book or corporate farm manual. -Chuck Wagner We are the Wagner Family of Wine: Chuck Wagner continues to direct the world-reknown Cabernet program at Caymus Vineyards in Napa Valley; Charlie is making exquisite Chardonnay at Mer Soleil in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County; Joseph is making fine Pinot Noir under the Belle Glos label in the coastal areas of California; Jenny is learning the ropes here at Caymus and ah yes, our longtime winemaker for Conundrum, Jon Bolta, continues his craft of making that puzzling, white wine blend.

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection has a dense blackish/purple color and creamy, sweet crème de cassis fruit, blackberries, a touch of graphite and vanilla, This exuberant, boisterous, in-your-face style of Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly a fruit bomb, so be warned. Full-bodied and opulent with stunning concentration and richness, the wine has no hard edges and is much in the Caymus style of terrific fruit intensity (most of it black and blue), voluptuous texture, and a stunning finish with plenty of glycerin, wood and spice. The alcohol on the label is listed at 14.8%, which seems about accurate. I have Caymus Special Selection in my cellar back to some of the historic wines made by Chuck Wagner’s father in the early 1970s, and while the style’s gotten more precocious and consumer-friendly, these wines, even the more latter-day styles, have a tendency to age beautifully. This can be drunk now, or cellared for 20+ years.

I believe that 2012 may have been a new high water mark for Napa and California, with an ideal season from start to finish. Those conditions also contributed in setting apart this year’s Special Selection. The result is a wine that bears a more significant contrast from our more widely available Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the decades, the Napa landscape has changed as much as the essence of our wines. Napa has become a most beautiful agricultural valley, a manicured garden 30 miles in length, and its Cabernet is one of the world’s most revered wines. Even at Caymus, our approach to producing our top wine has evolved considerably. From the days of me by my Father’s side punching down fermenters with the simple goal of making a good wine that would sell, to today using some of those same techniques with the goal to make a top wine of our Valley. By luck I grew up in the Rutherford farmland with grapes and prunes surrounding our farmhouse. What is Caymus Special Selection? It is simply a blend of the very best lots of wines that we make in a given year. We achieve this by blind tasting wines in December, just at the end of fermentation. Taking into consideration tannins, color, fruit, concentration and flavor we blend and barrel age separately what we think demonstrates the Caymus elegance and what will be bottled as our best wine of the vintage, Special Selection. We do not think lightly of shifting our style of winemaking, but every so often, after much consternation, we do make some slight changes. The Caymus 2012 Special Selection marks such a time. This vintage gave us the opportunity to make wine with added complexity from additional French oak barrel aging (26 months) prior to bottling. Certain lots came through fermentation packing a concentration of the varying Valley soil attributes. In addition to the longer barrel time overall, we placed one-third of the wine in new oak barrels for three weeks, creating an impressive wood component. In the production of the 2012 Special Selection, higher tannin is the single largest departure from the past. The wine is slightly less fruit-driven, with fine textural richness. It has its own presence that we are extremely proud of. 


TASTING NOTES
A deep, dark red, this Special Selection features a nearly assertive and alluring aroma of sweet humidor tobacco. The nose is the result of lovely French oak and ripe, high-quality Cabernet, with a singular quality that awakens the senses and demands their attention. The initial impression on the palate is a fine and abundant textural feel ─ sweet and tacky at the tip of the tongue, then broadening and expanding again and again. This textural richness is layered by the plaque and tack of emulsified Cabernet skins plus a tremendously impressive wood component. This bottling is rich, profound on the palate, with immense fruit quality and the Caymus trademark suppleness.

The Mer Soleil Vineyard is named for the two natural forces that create its growing conditions: sea (mer) and sun (soleil). With plantings at two separate locations in the Santa Lucia Highlands appellation of Monterey County, our Mer Soleil Chardonnay vines are nestled on east-facing lower slopes of the Sierra de Salinas range in what is one of the coolest, direct grape-growing area in Califormia. The climate of this coastal appellation causes morning and evening fog and warm, bright afternoons, a combination that produces the high-quality fruit we use to make this bright, elegant Chardonnay.

Regionen nyder godt af køligheden fra tågen om morgenen og om eftermiddagen sørger havet for en stabilisering af temperaturen og resulterer i en lang vækstsæson som producerer vine med flot frugtsmag og god syrebalance.

Although Caymus Vineyards is best known for Cabernet Sauvignon, the Wagner family also produces a small amount of Zinfandel, which was a favorite of Caymus' Charlie Wagner. In many ways, Zinfandel is a quintessential California wine. It was one of the early varieties to be planted in Northern California by immigrants from Europe. Limited production.

I would give the 2014 a year or two for the tannins to soften.

The 2014 Chardonnay Los Alamos Vineyard is rich, flavorful and deeply expressive. Orchard fruit, mint, sweet spices and butter notes meld together in a creamy, beautifully layered Chardonnay endowed with marvelous texture. This is an especially racy, almost flamboyant wine from Gavin Chanin. The Los Alamos is usually a bit more reserved, but in 2014 it is very much on the extroverted side of things. Chanin told me the 2014 Los Alamos (at 14.5% alcohol) is the ripest wine he has ever made.

Plums, passion fruit, spring flowers and hints of violet all emerge from the silky, beautifully polished 2014 Pinot Noir Los Alamos Vineyard, which comes from very sandy soils located just outside of Los Alamos. It spent 12 months in a tiny 12% of new French oak. Medium-bodied and exceedingly elegant, with beautifully polished tannin, it should evolve nicely for a decade.

The 2014 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict is the most reticent and understated of Gavin Chanin's wines. Pear, smoke, slate and white orchard fruit are all laced together in a subtle Chardonnay that speaks in hushed tones. Hints of white pepper and mint add an attractive upper register. Like all of Chanin's wines, the Sanford & Benedict is all class. It will be interesting to see how it ages. Chanin's S&B Chardonnay is all from the original 1971 planting. It is also the most subtle of the 2014 Chardonnays.

From one of our most prized vineyards, this wine bridges the gap between the powerful Rita’s Crown and the aromatic La Rinconada. We expect this wine to age very long due to its great balance but also taste delicious when young. Many people know this vineyard’s historic reputation, and we are proud to make a wine that contributes to the aura of this great site.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Poetry reveals a rather inky, bluish/purple color. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, this wine is super-youthful and still tastes somewhat like a barrel sample. It’s bursting with upside potential. Inky purple to the rim, with notes of crème de cassis, black cherry liqueur, licorice, spice and a touch of vanilla, this is a full-bodied, concentrated and an utterly profound wine that may represent the greatest wine that Cliff Lede has made to date.

Vineyards 
Fruit was sourced from our Twin Peaks Vineyard in the Stags Leap District and a few of our valued growers within Napa Valley. Yields are maintained at sparse levels, with a focus on canopy management and vine balance. The wine is composed of small batches from a variety of blocks, representing a diverse range of carefully selected rootstocks and clones, to assemble a blend with depth and complexity. 

Winemaking
The grapes were picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered hand sorting process. The whole berries were gently gravity-delivered to tank by our crane system, minimizing disruption of berry integrity. Cold soaks lasted approximately five days, and fermentations were managed via a combination of délestage, pumpovers, and punchdowns. Extended maceration ranging from three to four weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles, allowing us to build mouth feel and wine complexity. The wine was aged in French oak for eighteen months. 

Winemaker Notes 
Aromas of fresh crushed raspberries, kirsch, and black plum are highlighted with hints of Tahitian vanilla, Belgian chocolate, and toasty pain grillé. The candied violet and black cherry flavors dance on the palate revealing ripe, supple tannins complemented by gravelly minerality and a long luscious finish.

Full-bodied, it comes across as the quintessential marriage of power and finesse.

Spring blossoms of wisteria, lupin, and California buckeye abound in the upper register of the seductive perfume. The full-bodied, coating mouthfeel expands out on the palate with a rich crème brûlée like texture as unctuous notes of bosc pear, orange marmalade, and lavender honey coalesce along the long, satisfying finish.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Songbook is seriously deep, dark and beautiful. Espresso, pine, menthol licorice and smoke jump from the glass in this brooding beauty. The purity and pedigree of the fruit, sourced from David Abreu, comes through in spades. The Songbook is without question the most backward of these 2010s from Cliff Lede. Layers of dark blue and black fruit supported by huge tannins leave a lasting impression on the intense finish. Songbook is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, all off of David Abreu’s Madrona Ranch and Thorevilos properties.

The 2012 IX Proprietary Red Estate, which comes from their gorgeous hillside vineyards overlooking Lake Hennessey high on Pritchard Hill, is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. Absolutely spectacular aromatics of spring flowers, blueberry, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit intermixed with creosote, graphite and floral notes are followed by a wine of great depth, elegance, richness and purity. Simply loaded, but with pristine harmony and equilibrium, this is a sensational tour de force and a great tribute to this spectacular hillside site on Pritchard Hill. Drink it over the next 25-35 years.This is an incredible lineup of wines from Ann Colgin, her winemaker Allison Tauziet and Bordeaux winemaking consultant Dr. Alain Raynaud.

The wine that probably gets ignored, but shouldn’t be, is their small production of 350-400 cases of Syrah from their estate vineyard. The 2012 IX Syrah Estate blew me away, and I’ve said many times that it always tastes as if it’s co-fermented with Viognier, but it is always 100% Syrah. It has a honeysuckle, flowery, almost white/peachy component in the blackberry and meaty aromatics that always throw me off. The wine is aged in small oak, but the oak is concealed by the lavish amount of fruit, glycerin and extract. This is a super-intense, massive, yet elegant and complex Syrah that should drink well for 10-15 years.

Tobacco, savory herbs, leather and dark fruit all inform a textured, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon loaded with class. The 2011 will drink well on release and for at least another handful of years beyond. The aromatics are savory and floral, but the expression of fruit is pure Corra and pure Celia Welch.

The 2005 Dominus continues to strut its stuff, tasting like a Napa hybrid blend of a St.-Emilion and Pomerol. Its dark ruby/purple-tinged color is followed by notions of cedarwood, spice box, roasted herbs, sweet black cherry and cassis fruit, licorice, and truffles. Full-bodied with excellent fruit intensity, complex aromatics, supple tannins, and a long finish, this 7,000-case blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot should drink well for two decades or more.

Christian Moueix, Dominus' owner, has purchased the 35-acre Swanson Vineyard, which is situated between the well-known California bistros, Brix and Mustard's. I suspect that will result in a third label from Dominus. At present, the production from these large holdings in Yountville is approximately 10,000-12,000 cases, with the second wine, Napanook, representing 3,500-4,000 cases, depending on the vintage. It is ironic that Christian Moueix, the great Merlot specialist at his flagship chateaux in Pomerol, especially Petrus, prefers the other Bordeaux varietals at his Napa property. Interestingly, when I visit Dominus, they always open a fresh bottle and serve it alongside a bottle that has been decanted for 24 hours. On each occasion, the more complex, open wine is the one that has had 24 hours of aeration, something buyers of this wine should take into consideration. These are the two strongest back to back vintages for Dominus since 1990-1991 and 2001-2002.

The 2008 Dominus may eclipse the 2007, but it may just be a matter of style. The 2007 Dominus, the quintessential model of haute couture, is pure elegance exhibiting a seamless integration of wood, tannin, alcohol and acidity as well as a complex bouquet of cedar, new saddle leather, sweet kirsch, black currant and plum fruit and a notion of licorice. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years.

This estate, owned by Christian Moueix, includes the famed Napanook Vineyard that was the base of so many of the historic Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignons of the 1950s and 1960s. Interestingly, they have completely eliminated Merlot from the bottling. The 2007 Dominus is a 5,400-case blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. There are 4,200 cases of the 2008 Dominus which is composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Lower yields resulted in a denser, more concentrated wine. The remarkable thing about these cuvees is that they smell like a hypothetical blend of a top Napa Cabernet Sauvignon and a serious Bordeaux, possibly a cross blend of a Pomerol and Pauillac. Both wines possess silky sweet tannins, which is the big difference between Dominus post-1990 and the first seven vintages, where the tannin content was relatively high. About 40% new oak is used in their upbringing.

P.S. In a couple of years, readers should be on the look-out for a new estate wine from Christian Moueix. One mile north of the Napanook Vineyard, Moueix has purchased a 36-acre, already planted parcel known as the Schmidt Ranch. I tasted some of the 2009 barrel samples and this appears to be another promising venture with a completely different personality a more obviously Napa Valley/Cabernet Sauvignon, ripe style of wine than the more elegant, complex Dominus. I'm not sure what the name will be, but it will definitely not be called the Schmidt Ranch.

FEL er det nye navn for Breggo Cellars. Navnet er nyt...men alt andet er som det altid har været - vinmarker, winemaker etc. Super velsmagende og Californisk Chardonnay når det er sværest at holde fingrene fra.

Vineyards
This Chardonnay is a blend of multiple clones sourced from Ferrington and Savoy Vineyards, located near the towns of Boonville and Philo, respectively, in Anderson Valley.

Winemaking
The fruit was harvested September 12 through October 8 at an average of 23.0° Brix, then whole cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. Fermentation occurred in neutral French oak barrels, and very limited malolactic fermentation was permitted. The wine was aged sur lie in 60 gallon neutral French oak barrels for nine months.

Winemaker Notes
The hallmarks of our Anderson Valley Chardonnay, bright acidity and vibrant fruit, are achieved by picking the grapes before the sugar gets too high, limiting malolactic fermentation, and using very little new oak. Aromatics of lemon panna cotta, verbena, and subtle hints of lime zest and struck flint give depth to the nose. On the palate, flavors of lemon zest, honey, and chamomile are punctuated by refreshing acidity.

FEL Pinot Noir Anderson Valley is a gorgeous introduction to the FEL wines. Juicy, dark cherries, flowers, sweet spices and a hint of oak emerge from a supple, juicy Pinot perfectly suited for drinking over the next few years. This is an especially forward Anderson Valley Pinot with plenty of appeal.

Vineyards
This wine is made of a blend of select clones including Pommard, Mt. Eden, Martini, and Dijon from Donnelly Creek, Savoy, Wiley, and Ferrington vineyards in the Anderson Valley Appellation.

Winemaking
The fruit was harvested September 2 through 17 at an average of 24.6° Brix, followed by a five to seven day cold soak at 55°F, a nine day primary fermentation peaking at 88-94°F, and a three to seven day extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels, 42% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Rousseau, Quintessence, François Frères, and Sirugue.

Winemaker Notes
The aromatics this wine are bright with sweet notes of black cherry, pomegranate, boysenberry, and truffle. Hints of cinnamon, caraway, and toast are reflective of both Anderson Valley’s spice driven terroir, and the extended aging in French oak barrels. In the mouth, the wine is loaded with rich flavors of dark fruit, cocoa, and spice. The palate is refined with pleasant acidity and elegant tannins that continue to unfold after the last sip. This is a generous wine that will continue to evolve and drink well for at least half a decade.

Winemaker Notes
Savoy Vineyard’s signature aromatics of black cherry, mint, and savory spices are particularly intense this vintage. As the wine breathes, the bouquet evolves and hints of cedar, toast, and cassis begin to appear. The weight and texture of the wine is particularly striking as flavors of black cherry, Bing cherry, kirsch, and Mission Fig explode in the mouth. Always among the most age-worthy of Anderson Valley Pinot Noirs, this Savoy will develop gracefully for many years to come.

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is all about grace. One of the most floral, perfumed wines of the vintage, the 2011 impresses for its balance and sense of proportion. There are no hard edges or green notes in the 2011, even though the wine is smaller scaled than normal. Today, the 2011 is quite open and accessible, but I would not be surprised to see it tighten up in bottle. The bright acidity of the year lingers on the finish. Ric Forman shortened macerations by 50% and opted for gentle extractions. The 2011 also saw a little less new oak than normal.

There are few winemakers in Napa Valley who can match Ric Forman's enviable track record. My only regret is that Forman makes only one Chardonnay and one Cabernet Sauvignon, as my tastings at the estate tend to be short. At their best, these are some of the most compelling wines being made in the US today. Forman blocks the malo on his Chardonnay, a style he made famous decades ago, which results in unusually steely, vibrant wines by California standards. Forman's Cabernets are the stuff of legends and are capable of aging 30-40 years. Quite remarkably, these wines remain exceptionally well priced considering their quality.

A totally dazzling wine, Ric Forman's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is easily one of the wines of the vintage. Today, the 2013 is dense, powerful and explosive, with fabulous energy and tons of sheer intensity. Graphite, smoke, tobacco and layers of dark-fleshed fruit all open up in the glass. This is the first vintage to incorporate a dollop of Malbec. The 2013 has just been bottled. I will not be surprised at all if it merits a higher rating at some point in the future. Even better from bottle than it was from barrel, Ric Forman's 2013 is a super-classic, old-school Napa Cabernet to treasure for the next three decades. Best of all, Forman's Cabernet is probably the single greatest value in Napa Valley Cabernet.

Ric Forman's 2014 Chardonnay is a real stunner. A bit riper than it usually is, the 2014 possesses superb richness and intensity, but tapered with the vibrant, blocked-malo style that Forman pioneered in Napa Valley. The 2014 is a wine of push and pull that engages all the senses with superb textural balance and tons of nuance. Lemon oil, orchard fruit, almonds and dried flowers open up, but above all else the 2014 is a wine of feel. The balance here is just unreal.

As is generally the case for the Grand Roche blend, it is predominately made up of all of the press wine from the Forman Vineyard lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Merlot and Malbec.  In the 2013 version there was, in addition to the press wine, a small amount of Cabernet Franc free-run added.  Because of the fact the Grande Roche is closely related to the Forman Vineyard wine, it is no wonder that in many respects, it is easily recognized as just a slightly less sophisticated example of it’s more pedigreed parent.

In the 2013 Grande Roche, like its parent - the 2013 Forman Cabernet Sauvignon, is really quite delicious.  With dark color and a wonderful balance it represents the concentration of the vintage.  Plenty of fruit exists in a very complex array made possible from an exquisite vintage and the five varieties that make up its blend.

100 år gamle stokke fra Napa...

Står man ved marken, er det er ikke så svært at forestille hvordan marken så ud, da den blev beplantet første gang i 1870. For ikke meget har ændret sig her  1.200 meter over Napa Valley med udsigt til Palisades og Mount St. Helena. De oprindelige vinmarker blev erstattet med valnødder og svesker under forbudstiden, men jorden har bevaret sin vilde, rustikke karakter. David og Cathy Marsten, fristet af den romantiske tanke om at dyrke vin, købte denne bjergskråning i 1969. Det følgende år flyttede de til Calistoga for at etablere familie, bygge hus og genoplive vingården. 


Hvorfor Zinfandel 

Da André Tchelistcheff, kendt dekan af California vinfremstilling, blev spurgt, hvad Marstens skulle plante, undersøgte han jorden og sagde: "Zinfandel ville vokse godt her, men plant noget du kan lide." Venner og bekendte, som også blev spurgt, var ligeledes skeptiske over den kommercielle værdi af Zinfandel. Men Cathy og David talte med en ældre nabo, som var vokset op i nærheden, og han kunne fortælle at marken var beplantet med Zinfandel i hans drengeår. Det afgjorde det. Jorden blev beregnet til at blive plantet for at Zinfandel. I mere end 30 år blev frugten solgt til adskillige respekterede vingårde, herunder Caymus og Burgess. Fra 2005 besluttede men at udbyde den første årgang under egen label. 


Resultaterne

Franz Hill Zinfandel er en vin, der forbliver tro mod sine rustikke rødder men samtidig med en snert af polish. Denne vin kunne ikke forveksles med andet end Zinfandel, det er vilde bær og knust sort peber.  Det smager af Franz Hill: jorden, træerne og historien. Der dyrkes på to små blokke med ekstremt lavt udbytte; 0.4 ton frugt pr hektar (en tiendedel af Napa Valley gennemsnit). 



Som Robert Parker skrev om 2005:


....proprietor Jack Bittner has fashioned a brilliant effort that reminded me of a French Rhone with its meaty, peppery, berry character. Full-bodied, spicy, and impeccably well-made, this is a stunning effort.

More dense, tannic, complex and fuller-bodied that Harlan's 2011 The Maiden is the 2011 Harlan Estate. Its plum/purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of camphor, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings, Christmas fruitcake and hints of forest floor and underbrush. Deep, round and generous with silky tannins and a forward, evolved style, this beauty should drink well for 15-18 years.

The 2011 Harlan Estate is super-expressive and textured in the glass. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and new leather open up as the wine sits in the glass. Decidedly mid-weight and gracious, the 2011 impresses for its exceptional balance and sense of proportion. Harlan Estate is capable of myriad of expressions. In 2011, the more feminine side of the property comes through. Although not a blockbuster, the 2011 is incredibly beautiful, especially considering how challenging the year was.

The 2012 Harlan Estate is reminiscent of their 2002. Probably a candidate for perfection with another 4-5 years of bottle age, the wine is inky plum/purple to the rim and offers a gorgeous nose of scorched earth, blackberry and cassis, forest floor, and a floral, lavender-like component followed by deep, opulent, majestic flavors that caress the palate with high but sweet tannin. This is relatively evolved, and supple and voluptuous for a young Harlan estate – hence the comparison with their compelling 2002. This wine can be drunk in several years and is likely another candidate for 30-50 years of cellaring.

The Maiden is made up of the lighter, softer, more evolved lots culled from the Harlan Estate wine. The Harlan Estate is virtually all Cabernet Sauvignon with a touch of Merlot and Petit Verdot, but interestingly, very little or possibly no Cabernet Franc, which is surprising in view of its neighbor Futo Estate, which is just down the hillside and does such a magnificent job with Cabernet Franc in their blends. 

As a postscript, I recently tasted the first Harlan Estate wines, which were never released, as Bill Harlan wanted to set the market on fire with a truly great wine. Looking back on the 1987, 1988 and 1989, the 1987 was tired, but the other two vintages were certainly upper 80-point wines, although nowhere near the quality of his first release, the 1990, or the subsequent great wines that started with the 1991. And speaking of the 1991, I just had two bottles of it at two separate tastings from my cellar, and that wine, at age 24, is still incredibly vigorous, vibrant and majestic. So my aging curves of 30-50 years for recent great vintages are completely understandable, given the fact that the 1991 still has at least another 20 years of life left in it.

The Maiden is fashioned from barrels not deemed rich or complex enough for the Harlan Estate (a true first-growth wine).

It is on a fast evolutionary track, so enjoy it now and over the next 10+ years.

Joe Heitz came to the Napa Valley in 1951 and worked alongside Andre Tchelistscheff at BV. He bought his first vineyard in 1961 and the legendary Heitz Cellars was born. He introduced the concept of a vineyard designate in 1966 with the now famous "Martha's Vineyard", and pioneered numerous ideas in winemaking throughout his life. His name and Napa Cabernet go hand in hand.

The 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color followed by notes of creosote, burning embers, wood spice, forest floor, blackberry and cassis. It is full-bodied with great intensity and a long, rich, concentrated finish.

The 2012 Janzen Cloudy's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from the Dutch Henry Canyon area near both the Switchback and Hourglass Vineyards and sits at a 400-foot elevation, is certainly another stunner. It’s rare to see two Cabernet Sauvignons that eclipse anything from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, but I think Jenzen has done that in 2012. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon, the Cloudy’s Vineyard is opaque purple and displays richness and intensity in its notes of lead pencil shavings intermixed with cedar wood, fruitcake, blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. A wine of extraordinary intensity and a long finish, it should drink well for 20-25

Virtually perfect, and a California verison of Haut-Brion or La Mission Haut-Brion is the absolutely remarkable 2012 Janzen Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon. There are 250 cases of this prodigious wine, which is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from this site. Loads of scorched earth, burning embers/charcoal, blackberry and blueberry fruit soar from the glass along with some floral notes. Quite full-bodied, it offers sweet tannin, low acidity, and a fleshy, rich finish of close to a minute. The tannins are there, but they are wonderfully sweet and integrated. This is a fabulous effort from the Jenzen family.

In 2012, the vineyard's red volcanic soils nourished a wine with unmistakable purity: vivid and tart, with lifted hibiscus and sumac aromas drawn out by the delicate touch of winemakers Micah Wirth and Adrian Manspeaker. Tasted over four days, this wine continued to evolve without flagging in the least. It builds toward a woodsy red-berry flavor that's silken yet firm. This is the genius of great California zinfandel that is can feel simultaneously striking and simple, its pleasure more immediate than intellectual, irresistibly compelling. You could decant this now, or better yet, buy a case and watch it evolve over the next decade or more.

This is a bright, mineral-driven Chardonnay similar to Chablis. It is fermented and aged in stainless steel to retain it's crisp and refreshing nature. With a pale straw hue, the youthful nose has aromas of quince, yellow apple, and citrus. Tart apples and lemon meringue on the palate are supported by lively acidity and minerality. Clean, focused, and elegant, this wine is perfect for warm, sunny days and a wonderful partner for cheeses and seafood.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Vin is stunning. Dark black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, menthol, tobacco and new leather wrap around the palate as this majestic, breathtaking wine shows off its personality, class and pure pedigree. Powerful yet elegant, delicate yet intense, the 2010 is firing on all cylinders today. Layers of fruit build to a crescendo of pure pleasure. Readers lucky enough to own the 2010 will want to cellar this beauty for at last a few years. In the meantime, though, it will be pretty impossible to resist.

Historien om Kapcsándy Winery startede tilbage i 1998, hvor Lou Kapcsándy sammen med sin kone besøgte Bordeaux. Her var de blevet inviteret af ejerne af Leoville Las Cases - Michel Delon og frue. Som frokosten skred frem blev Lou mere og mere overbevist om, at USA kunne producere vin på niveau med de store franske huse. I 2000 fandt de den helt rigtige placering og vindrømmen kunne endelig begynde sin rejse.

Der produceres i 15 specifikke blokke, primært Cabernet Sauvignon og Merlot.

15 år efter er det stadig Bordeaux-style som kendetegner Kapcsándys cuvéer, og man søger konstant balancen fremfor blot frugt fedme.

The less expensive 2010 Endre (53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc aged in both French and Hungarian oak) is very Bordeaux like. Notes of bouquet garni, red and black currants and loamy soil are present in this medium-bodied wine that seems to be a faster evolving effort than its siblings. With excellent texture as well as an elegant style, and I use that word in a positive sense, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

There have been several noticeable changes in the Kistler wines over the last few years, as they are certainly picking the Pinot Noir at an earlier date and going for less extraction, more fragrance and delicacy. The Chardonnays are still powerful wines but they have backed off the new oak to about 40%. (About 10 years ago, it was around 60%.) Other than that they are still potent and rich Chardonnays that are meant to be drunk in their first 4-6 years of life.

The best balanced of these three 2011 Pinots from Kenz, the 2011 Pinot Noir Cerise bristles with energy and tension. Blood orange, crushed rocks, minerals, plums and roses flesh out in a layered, vibrant Pinot bursting with focus. The 2011 turns a bit savory in the glass, but those notes just add complexity and distinctiveness. The 2011 was done with 50% stems. It is a gorgeous wine from start to finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Knez is a new project being headed by proprietor Peter Knez and winemaker Anthony Filiberti of Anthill Farms. The wines are made with native yeasts and see fairly low levels of new oak, around 30-35%, in other words, very much the same style Filiberti pursues at Anthill. Based on these three wines, it certainly appears Knez is one of the most exciting new entrants on the Sonoma Coast. It will be interesting to see where things go in the coming years, especially as Knez’s Estate vineyard in Anderson Valley comes online with the 2012 harvest.

Kongsgaard’s Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Atlas Peak on a parcel of leased ground. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is sensational. This looks to be great stuff, but needs another 3-4 years of cellaring to show its full potential. Layers of ripe blackcurrant fruit and again some dusty, earthy minerality are present, and the wine shows plenty of blackberry and cassis. It is full-bodied, moderately tannic, and relatively extravagant in its density and richness. This wine should be put to sleep for 3-4 years and drunk over the following 25-30 years.

One of the great wine producers in Napa Valley, John Kongsgaard first worked at Newton winery, where he had been taught well by the world guru in winemaking, Michel Rolland. When he went out on his own, he developed a strong relationship with the Hudson family and now produces fruit from specially planted clones in the Hudson Vineyard, while also maintaining his own estate on Atlas Peak in Coombsville. All of his wines are unfined, unfiltered, singular in style, and often some of the most expressive and remarkable wines in Napa Valley. Talking to John Kongsgaard is akin to talking to some medieval wizard or mystic, but it all makes sense.

Deep, inky and powerful, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is towering. Dark, bass notes abound as firm tannins wrap around a core of intense black fruit. Smoke, tobacco and cedar add layers of dimension, but the 2013 is years away from being fully expressive. Today, the 2013 has regal, majestic bearing that strongly suggests readers will have to be patient. The marriage of opulence and power is compelling.

Kongsgaard also makes an amazing Syrah from a clone he obviously knows a lot about, because it does remind one of a great Côte-Rôtie such as Guigal’s La Landonne. Both the 2014 and 2013 are just loaded with notes of beef blood, grilled steak, raw beef, chocolate, asphalt, truffle and black olive tapenade. The 2013 has even more body and richness, and is a dead ringer for a great Côte-Rôtie from Guigal, especially one with no Viognier in it. It is pure meat, blood and black fruits. Drink it over the next 15-20 years, although I found it irresistible when I tasted it.

Of course, it’s hard to find any, but there are usually about eight to 15 barrels of his estate Chardonnay from Coombsville called “The Judge” in honor of his father. From old Wente clones originally planted in 1975, yields are rarely in excess of one ton of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its extraordinary intensity and richness. The 2013 Chardonnay The Judge is perfect, and certainly one of the greatest Chardonnays I have ever tasted. Keeping in mind that Kongsgaard is no youngster at this game (2015 was his 41st vintage making wine), his 2013 The Judge, from the white volcanic soil in Coombsville called tufa, is an amazing wine of great intensity, power, glory, elegance, texture, density and richness. The wine offers up loads of tangerine oil, caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, white peach, apricots, and wet stones. It seems to be a smorgasbord of aromas and flavors that just keep opening as the wine sits in the mouth. This is an amazing effort and one of the greatest Chardonnays ever made in California.

Jamie Kutch forlod en højt betalt karriere som broker for Merrill Lynch for at flytte til Californien og forfølge sin evige drøm om at producere vin. Både familie, venner og kollegaer mente at han var rablende vanvittig, indtil hans første Pinot Noir scorede 93 point i Wine Spectator. 
Kutch Pinot Noirs er lavet så naturlige som muligt. Efter druerne er høstet med håndkraft bliver de sorteret omhyggeligt og gærer derefter i små åbne beholdere og presses kun med hænder og fødder. Efter gæring flyttes vinen til franske egetræsfade, hvor de lagrer sur lie. Jamie Kutch forfølger en minimalistisk filosofi og forsøger at fremstille det reneste udtryk for Pinot Noir hvor terroir dominerer. 

Som med mange high-end californiske vine, sælges vinene fra Jamie Kutch kun gennem en mailingliste – men vi har som en af de få fået lov til at købe direkte. 

Robert Parker
The 2011 Pinot Noir is a bigger, more overt wine than the 2010, despite being a full percentage lower in alcohol. A blast of dark red fruit, tobacco, game and spices hits the palate in this expressive, resonant wine. The 2011 is totally different in style than the 2010, partially because of the use of 25% whole clusters. It is already pretty impressive. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. 

Jamie Kutch is one of the most thoughtful and introspective of California's generation of young, emerging producers. Those qualities are serving him very well as the wines continue to move in the right direction. Overall, I find the 2011 Pinots a notch above the 2010s. In 2011 Kutch opted to use a higher percentage of whole clusters, an approach that has paid off in spades. Kutch also decided to bottle his 2011s a little earlier than normal, after 10 months in oak versus 18 for the 2010s, a move that seems to have preserved a measure of focus that has at times been missing in the wines. Sadly, 2011 is the last vintage for Kutch's Savoy Pinot, but that site has been replaced by two new additions: Hirsch beginning in 2012 and Alder Springs in 2013. It will be fascinating to see where Jamie Kutch goes next. One thing is clear -- the road is wide open.

A full-bodied, rich and layered red that epitomizes Paso Robles, it has beautiful freshness, a silky texture and a great finish. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.

The 2014 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard captures all the phenolic intensity that is so typical of this renowned Sonoma site. A vertical, intense wine, the Durell is also the most structured and outright powerful Chardonnay Gavin Chanin makes.

Robert Parker 94P
Starting with the two Chardonnays from the Sonoma Coast AVA, the 2014 Chardonnay Durell Vineyard is a flat out gorgeous beauty that has classic notes of cream corn, apple blossom and sautéed lemons. Rich, textured, impeccably balanced and long, it will drink well for a decade or more. This 2014 spent 12 months in 30% new French oak, and there are a little over 1,000 cases.

The 2014 Pinot Noir Durell Vineyard is the most intense and powerful of the Lutum Pinot Noirs. Beams of tannin give the wine its super-distinctive shape and size. Bright red and purplish-hued fruits, smoke, tobacco, licorice, game and spices give the Durell an element of exoticism that is impossible to miss. Powerful and structured to the core, the 2014 is going to need at least a few years to come into its own.

The 2014 Chardonnay Gap's Crown Vineyard is all class. Silky, layered and wonderfully nuanced, the Gap's Crown oozes personality. Candied lemon peel, jasmine, sage and white pepper are some of the many signatures that develop in the glass. The 2014 is understand and soft-spoken, but there is no shortage of nuance. This is a stunning Chardonnay from Gavin Chanin.

Druerne er fra blandt andet de kølige Sonoma Mountains til de solrige bjergskråninger i Dry Creek Valley og den varmere Alexander Valley.
De har formået at lave en Cabernet Sauvignon som fuldt ud afspejler det fantastiske potentiale, Sonoma County  har som Cabernet Sauvignon producent.
Man har fravalgt de mest køligere områder i Sonoma for at få mere frodige og koncentrerede vine.
 
2014 var udfordrende på grund af tørke men producerede fantastisk frugt men med lavere udbytte. En ideel høst med konsekvent moderate temperaturer og vejrforhold, tillod at vinstokkene og frugt leverede optimalt med koncentreret smag og enestående kvalitet.
 
Druerne er plukket om natten og i de tidlige morgentimer, lagret på 45 % nye franske egetræsfade i 14 måneder.
 
Smagsnoter
Vidunderlig kompleksitet i denne vin. Noter af vilde brombær, maraschino kirsebær, og friske salvieblade. Undervurder ikke de fantastiske integrerede tanniner.

Martin Ray er ekstremt selektiv i hvilke vinbønder som de handler med og modsat mange andre negociant virksomheder så er de med i markerne, selekterer druer, deltager i høsten og overvåger hele produktionen. Alle markerne behandles som individuelle Lots og lagres på små fade.

The cool-climate 2014 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch, from the Green Valley in the Russian River, is absolutely spectacular. It saw 80% new oak because it was so concentrated, and it seems to have sucked it up and only reveals just a slight wood spice to its full-bodied, beautifully textured, black raspberry and blackberry fruit. This is one of the profound 2014s and should drink well for 15-20 years.

The evolved dark garnet-colored 2012 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard came in at only 17.1% natural alcohol. It is extremely full-bodied with notes of lavender, bay leaf, sweet mulberry and black cherry jam, wild strawberries, spice box and charcuterie. The incredibly decadent, luxurious aromatic profile is followed by an equally stunning, multidimensional, full-throttle, massively-endowed wine to drink over the next 10-15+ years.

International Wine Cellar 94/100
Highly perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits, apricot, potpourri and woodsmoke, with a sexy Asian spice nuance adding complexity. Juicy, penetrating blueberry and mulberry flavors show outstanding depth, with a spine of zesty minerality providing lift. Offers a compelling blend of richness, weight and vivacity and finishes with superb clarity, power and spicy persistence. I suspect that this hugely concentrated wine will age along a slow, steady, very long curve.

Newtons Red label serie er de "nye" basis vine fra huset, der er blevet berømt for deres intense og meget volumeniøse ufiltrede vine.Vinen er skabt på druer købt hos venner og bekendte både i Sonoma County (58 %) og i Napa County (42 %). Den har modtaget 12 måneders lagring på fade, der har været brugt 2-3 gange til topvinen "Unfilteret Chardonnay", og i modsætning til denne får vinen ikke lov til at gennemføre sin malolaktiske gæring.
Dette giver, sammen med den lidt mere beherskede fadlagring en vin som er lidt friskere og lidt mindre insistrende end topvinen, om end udtrykket fortsat er fyldigt og frodigt.Nyd den til til klassiske fiskeretter med intense saucer, eller prøv og lad rødvinen blive i kælderen og server den sammen med fjerkræ og lyst fuglevildt.

Newton Vineyard er Peter Newtons livsværk. Efter en tid som succesrig forretningsmand blev han med grundlæggelsen af Sterling Vineyards nær Calistoga, Californien, i 1964 en del af den første bølge af vinavlerne, som satte de californiske vine på den internationale dagsorden. Sterling blev hurtigt kendt for sin Cabernet Sauvignon og Chardonnay og senere var det her at den ellers nedvurderede Merlot drue blev bragt ind i varmen.

Sterling Vineyards blev solgt til Coca-Cola i 1977 og for de midler der kom ud af det grundlagde Peter Newton og hans kone Su Hua Newton Vineyard i St. Helena og deres naturligt gærede, fadlagrede og ufiltrerede Chardonnay, Merlot og Cabernet vine blev snart nogle af de største forbilleder for producenterne i Napa.

Peter Newton døde i februar 2008 81 år gammel, men da det de seneste 10 år har været den noget yngre Su Hua, som stod i spidsen for produktionen får dette ingen betydning. Newton Vineyard vil fortsat producere californisk "Vin De Garde", vine skabt i kærlighed til de franske forbilleder og vine som - efter californisk målestok - udvikler sig smukt og længe på flaske.

Riper, fleshier, and more hedonistic than the '11 (but not as much as the differences in the vintage would have you believe), the 2012 Syrah Roll Ranch is a beautiful wine that's loaded with notions of sweet cassis, blackberries, chocolate, mulled spice and underbrush. Ripe, sexy and opulent, with no hard edges and a great finish, it's about as voluptuous and textured as Adam's wines get today. In addition, the purity and polish to the fruit and tannin are exceptional. These traits are present in almost all of the new releases from Adam and Fabien, and while it gives their wines a slightly upfront, easy appeal in their youth, they'll age beautifully given their harmony and balance.

In a blind tasting, this wine did not fool many tasters when served blind. It was quickly identified as a California wine despite the fact that it is made in a Bordeaux-like style. The wine performed well, exhibiting a deep ruby/purple color, a lead pencil, grapy, spicy oak-scented nose, medium body, a tight, more compact texture than the Bordeaux, as well as more elevated and obvious new oak. Rich and ripe, as well as graceful, it stood out as having higher acidity than the Bordeaux. Although soft enough to be drunk, the 1990 Opus One is capable of lasting 15 or more years.

I tend to think that recent vintages of Opus One are even greater than vintages made during this era, but the 2002 is certainly one of the top wines Opus has produced during the early part of this century. It boasts a dense plum/purple hue along with a striking bouquet of graphite, toasty oak, creme de cassis and acacia flowers. Full-bodied, opulent and young, it offers accessibility as well as silky tannins. A thoroughly complete wine that is pure and rich, it tastes like a hypothetical blend of a great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon married to a Bordeaux Pauillac. Bravo!

This blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec aged 17 months in French oak is a strong effort offering creme de cassis, cedarwood, white chocolate and spice box. It possesses a Bordeaux-like personality, as one might expect since Opus One is owned by Baroness Philippe de Rothschild and the winemaking team comes primarily from Pauillac. The significant tannin in the wine provides a slight austerity, but this is a full-bodied, rich effort that marks the beginning of a period when Opus One finally began to live up to the enormous potential first announced in the late 1970s by the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild and the late Robert Mondavi.

The 2014 growing season was the third in a string of stunning vintages in Napa Valley. Dry, mild tempera- tures brought on early budbreak, while the persistent drought helped produce small berries with concen- trated flavors and elegant tannins. The overall length of the growing season was normal, allowing for full ripening and fresh, balanced acidity, however given the early start to the crop, it was our earliest harvest on record. Most of all, this year will go down in history for the earthquake that rocked Napa just days before harvest. Fortunately, our winery and vineyard were safe, but the greater community was deeply impacted, and the event defined the entire season.

Jayson Red Wine is a distinctive blend of Bordeaux varieties, crafted to express each vintage with intensity and richness. Fermented in stainless steel tanks to enhance the fresh fruit profile and retain its bright acidity, the wine was racked to barrels (45% new French oak) for fifteen months and bottled with minimal fining and filtration. We make this wine to be enjoyed upon release, but it will age beautifully for a decade.

TASTING NOTES
This wine leads with delicate floral aromas of violets, dried herbs, cloves and a hint of gravel, with a distinct Right Bank influence driven by the Cabernet Franc. The palate is rich and concentrated, with chewy Bing cherry, juicy ripe plum, and hints of dark chocolate and sweet orange peel. This is a fleshy, full-bodied wine with substantial tannins. Bright acidity, reminiscent of Bergamot, is a hallmark of the vintage, and balanc- es the rich fruit over a long, pebbly finish.

ABOUT JAYSON WINES
The Jayson portfolio is the second label of Pahlmeyer, honoring its namesake with wines that are expertly made from select vineyard blocks and barrels. Jayson wines are the essence of luxury with a style all their own.

An absolute epic wine is the 2013 Merlot. It is no wimpy wine either. A gorgeous nose including roasted espresso, melted black chocolate, blackberry, plum and cassis offers an exceptional set of aromatics. The wine has beautiful ripeness, headiness and a long finish of close to 45+ seconds. This is a beauty of terrific purity, texture and personality. Few California Merlots will ever be capable of equaling this. Drink it over the next 25-30+ years.

An absolute stunner is the 2013 Proprietary Red Wine. This is all mountain fruit. Beautiful floral, smoky, blackcurrant notes mixed with acacia flowers and forest floor jump from the glass of this dense, full-bodied, concentrated and age-worthy wine. Like most 2013s, this is a 30-year wine with remarkable concentration, color and fruit extract. Drink it over the following 30+ years.

Note
In last spring’s newsletter I characterized the Ama as the suave, masculine counterpoint to the refined, feminine Scallop Shelf. This vintage particularly brings this comparison into focus. The nose on the 2013 Ama Pinot noir is powerful and brooding. It has the sweet tobacco leaf quality often found in cold climate Pinot noir with iron and forest floor notes framing a cherry core. The acidity is bright and the wine is not heavy or plodding due to moderate to low alcohol (13.2%). The tannins are silky with a delicious lingering cherry and sanguine quality on the finish. The 2013 Ama has all the qualities necessary to age for a long time and the signature expression of Pinot it captures from our vineyard—darker dry cherry, power without fat—will begin to show in 5 years.

Wine and Spirits 92P
Sourced mostly from Peay’s Annapolis estate, with a small portion garnered from the nearby Campbell Ranch, this has a coastal purity to its aroma, a clean, violet perfume that’s captivating. Structurally, the wine is taut, the tannins holding a chalky grip even with a day of air. Another year in bottle should help round off its edges; save it for grilled whole sockeye during next autumn’s Pacific salmon run.

Pine, menthol, savory herbs, licorice, dark cherry and plum notes emerge from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshed out beautifully while retaining a classic, mid-weight profile. My sense is that the 2011 will develop along the lines of the 1994, a wine that remains distinctly floral, savory and medium in body, with less of the explosiveness of years such as 1985 or 1997, but with tons of class and style. It is going to be interesting to find out. The 2011 was bottled just a few months ago, so I will not be surprised if it shows even better than this note suggests with time. In 2011, the fruit came in a whole month later than normal.

A majestic, towering wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is even more striking in bottle than it was from barrel. Deep, unctuous and remarkably vivid for such a big, intense wine, the 2013 simply conquers all of the senses, from the intellectual to the hedonistic. A host of dark red cherry, pomegranate, spice, mint and floral notes meld together in the glass, but the 2013 is a wine to admire for its total sense of completeness. This is easily the greatest young Philip Togni wine I have ever tasted. Simply put, the 2013 is magnificent and one of the wines of the vintage.

Harvesting the fruit at different stages of ripeness, known as phased picking, played a critical role in producing the 2013 Fig Tree Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Picking began when the fruit reached 21.5 to 22 Brix and continued until the sugar levels reached a maximum of 24 Brix. That assured the wine would exhibit tropical fruit as well as grassy notes. A mix of whole cluster and destemmed fruit was used and skin contact was kept short, no more than two to three hours. Fermentations began in stainless steel and then roughly half of the juice was pumped to barrel to complete. The wine was aged on the lees in stainless steel, neutral French oak and acacia wood barrels for four months, adding a beautiful texture to the wine.

Inhale the aromas, sip a bit of this Sauvignon Blanc and you'll notice an interesting quality. Figs perhaps? But what's most apparent is its roundness and richness, the result of picking the fruit a little riper in 2013 and using about a third Musqué clone Sauvignon Blanc. There's a touch of grassiness on the nose, giving way to pineapple, melon and lime notes that carry through to the palate. The youthful, firm acidity is there on the end but softens with time in the glass. You might also notice a mineral note in the Fig Tree, something you don't customarily find in California Sauvignon Blanc.

Ridge's 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Beams of tannin and acidity make a strong opening statement, but there is more than enough fruit to fill out the wine's frame. This is an especially dark, virile Estate. Then again, that is 2013. Inky blue/purplish fruit, licorice, sage, exotic spices and lavender grace the exquisite finish. This is an absolutely delicious mountain Cabernet endowed with real pedigree and class. It is also arguably the single greatest value in California Cabernet Sauvignon.

History
In 1886 the Monte Bello vineyard was first planted and construction on the winery begun. The first vintage was in 1892. In the early 1940s, the last of the old vineyard was abandoned; in the late forties a few blocks were replanted. Those cabernet vines—now sixty years old—produced the first Ridge Monte Bello (1962) and subsequent vintages until the mid-seventies. By then, abandoned blocks replanted during the sixties were maturing, and their fruit considered for use in the Monte Bello. A number of those consistently produced a more accessible wine that developed its full complexity earlier and these were combined as the “Santa Cruz Mountains.” With the 2008 vintage the name of this stylistically distinct wine becomes Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, stressing the varietal and the Monte Bello vineyard as its source.

The 2014 Chardonnay Estate opens with inviting aromatics. Bright, floral and nuanced, the 2014 offers striking complexity and energy. There is a hint of reduction, but that is not a negative. Readers who enjoy focused Chardonnays will find much to admire in the 2014. This is a gorgeous wine from Ridge. Lemon, white pepper and mint add the closing layers of nuance. In 2014, Ridge bottled less of their Monte Bello Chardonnay than the norm, which may be one of the reasons the Estate is so expressive.

Winemaker Notes 
Sun-bleached straw color. Ripe pineapple, green apple, pear, melon, biscotti, flint, toasted oak. Elegant fresh citrus entry, ginger root, limestone earth, lemon zest finish.

Winemaking
Sustainably grown Monte Bello estate grapes, hand harvested; whole cluster pressed; fermented on the native yeasts, followed by full malolactic on the naturally occurring bacteria; minimum effective sulfur for this wine (25 ppm at the press, 20 ppm over the course of aging); oak from barrel fermentation and aging; bottled without filtration. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention, this is the sum of our actions.

The 2013 Merlot Estate shows just how extraordinary this vintage is at Ridge. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2013 Merlot hits the palate with serious intensity and tannic heft. Dark and virile to the core, the 2013 is flat-out delicious. Even with all of its intensity, the 2013 retains the classic Ridge sense of mid-weight structure. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2013 for at least a few years. This is impressive stuff.

History
In 1886 the Monte Bello vineyard was first planted and construction on the winery begun. The first vintage was in 1892. In the early 1940s, the last of the old vineyard was abandoned; in the late forties a few blocks were replanted. Those cabernet vines—now sixty years old—produced the first Ridge Monte Bello (1962) and subsequent vintages until the mid-seventies. By then, abandoned blocks replanted during the sixties were maturing, and their fruit considered for use in the Monte Bello. A number of those consistently produced a more accessible wine that developed its full complexity earlier and these were combined as the “Santa Cruz Mountains.” With the 2008 vintage the name of this stylistically distinct wine becomes Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, stressing the varietal and the Monte Bello vineyard as its source.

The 2012 Monte Bello is one of the most harmonious young Monte Bellos I can remember tasting. Seamless and voluptuous through to the finish, the 2012 is showing beautifully today. Raspberry jam, pomegranate, white flowers, mint and spices are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. A wine with a distinctly red-hued profile, silky tannins, no hard edges and exceptional overall balance, the 2012 Monte Bello is simply magnificent. The 2012 is racy but also impeccably balanced throughout, with shades of the 2001 that come through from time to time. I won't be surprised if the 2013 and 2014 both eventually surpass it, but there is no denying that the 2012 is simply stunning today. This is one of the best showings yet for the 2012.

The 2013 Monte Bello is utterly spellbinding in its beauty. Finely sculpted and chiseled, with super-expressive aromatics and searing tannins, the 2013 is shaping up to be a modern-day classic. The 2013 is remarkably pure and vibrant for such a big wine. It will be years before the 2013 is close to being ready to drink. Even so, it is magnificent today. Where will the 2013 end up? The future seems limitless for now. Quite simply, the 2013 is a must-have wine. In 2013, Monte Bello is very heavy in Cabernet Sauvignon, partly because Merlot suffered in the drought-like conditions. The 2013 has already begun to shut down in bottle. Readers need to be in for the long haul.

The East Bench is a great choice for by the case purchases, as one or two bottles won't nearly be enough. This is a rare 100% Zinfandel from Ridge, as the other Zinfandels in the range are field blends.

The 2015 Pinot Noir from Rossi-Wallace is especially fine this year. The low-yielding, ripe vintage produced an unusually racy, luscious wine. Even with all of its intensity, the 2015 retains considerable brightness and lift throughout. Expressive red stone fruit, mint, crushed flowers and rose petal overtones are nicely delineated in this fleshy, but classically mid-weight Pinot.

Ric Forman er ved at være en sand veteran med snart 50 år I vinbranchen I Napa. I årtier kendt for at produce Cabernet Sauvignon i absolut topniveau hvor balance og terroir har højeste focus. Sammen med hans kone Cheryl Emmolo præsenterer han nu markedet for to nye vine – en Pinot Noir og en Chardonnay som bærer navnet på deres mødre – Rossi Wallace. Her er tale om mikroproduktion – 830 kasser med Pinot og 251 kasser med Chardonnay og begge vine udtrykker friskheden I frugten og meget beskeden brug af fad. 

Ric talks about the 2015 Rossi-Wallace Pinot Noir
Due to an unusually cool period during flowering, Spring 2015, Pinot Noir experienced extreme shatter and hence a very small crop. Small is good for quality but bad for production. We had to out-source to make a commercially viable quantity. Perhaps necessity created a serendipitous eventuality. The three county selection from some exquisite vineyards has produced a truly plush and distinctive Pinot. The wine shouts "Pinot" with its' alluring strawberry, violet and raspberry fruit and is sensually warm and full in flavor. One sip begs for another! One of our best yet - 35 barrels produced.

Galloni 92
The 2014 Pinot Noir is sleek, perfumed and super-expressive, with a gorgeous sense of translucency and weightlessness in its sweet, perfumed fruit. The Rossi-Wallace Pinot emerges from fruit sourced from the Antinori family's vineyard on Atlas Peak. In the past, I have found the wine a bit weak and lacking in depth. The 2014 is the first vintage I can recall with real substance, not to mention pedigree. This is a superb showing, especially considering the price.

The perfect 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Screaming Eagle is composed of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc. Made in the classic, iconic Screaming Eagle style that the original proprietress, Jean Philipps, first showcased in the early 1990s, before the winery was sold to Stan Kroenke, the inky/purple-colored, seamless 2012 possesses an extraordinary set of aromatics consisting of pure blackcurrant liqueur, licorice, acacia flowers, graphite and a subtle hint of new oak. Full-bodied, opulent and voluptuous, this profound wine is as prodigious as I thought it would be last year when tasted from barrel. It should age effortlessly for 20 or more years.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a dark purple color along with a pungent, earthy nose displaying hints of new saddle leather, roasted meats, cedarwood, barbecue smoke, creme de cassis and blackberries. Full-bodied and rich with sweet tannins, great focus and delineation, and a finish that lasts 50 seconds, this killer wine should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. (Keep in mind that the 1990 and 1991 are just hitting their stride where well-stored.) 

This Conn Valley winery continues to impress with their full throttle, ageworthy Cabernet Sauvignons made with the consulting assistance of Philippe Melka. The vineyards are all dry-farmed hillside sites and as Melka has told me many times, the biggest issue with the Seavey vineyards is trying to control the formidable tannins that emerge in nearly every vintage. 2010 is certainly their strongest vintage since 2008 and 2007.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Caravina is fabulous. Smoke, incense and dark red berries and smoke are some of the many nuances that take shape in the glass. This is an unusually complex second wine loaded with class and personality. I can’t think of too many wines that deliver this much sheer character for the money. Firm tannins frame the muscular finish. Ideally the 2010 needs another few years to settle down, but it is pretty special, even today. Readers who want to understand the essence of the 2010 vintage without spending a fortune will want to check out this gorgeous Cabernet. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025+.

Seavey flies a little under the radar, but savvy, price-conscious readers will want to pay attention to these Cabernets, which remain some of the most distinctive in Napa Valley. The estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon typically sees 18 months in French oak (50% new) and includes a dollop of Petit Verdot.

The Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five takes its name from the fact that John and Doug Shafer, as father and son, have worked together for a generation and a half – hence the name. This wine comes from their Stags Leap property and is a beauty. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon One Point Five is a stunner made from 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest other varietals. It is aged in 100% new oak, but you would never tell that given its richness of blackcurrant fruit, classic flowers and unsmoked cigar tobacco. The wine needs 3-4 years, as most 2013s do, and should be a 30-year wine. It is a beautiful baby, but bottle age will definitely unleash more subtleties and richness. This is a full-bodied classic that is superb.

There are very few wineries in California where you can say that the original wine owners and winemaking staff are totally intact and have been, in this case, since 1978. The estate was founded by John Shafer and run with great precision by himself and more recently by his son Doug and Elias Fernandez. The team has been working together for 38 years since the first vintage in 1978. Six years earlier in 1972, John Shafer bought the property and established the vineyard in the hillsides of Stags Leap. They produce about 30,000 cases of wine – all of it noteworthy. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is true first-growth quality and their Rhône Ranger wine made from Syrah and Petite Sirah, called Relentless, is about as profound as you can get from those

The 2013 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch looks like one of their all-time greats, and to date they’ve all been very impressive wines. The crisp tangerine, honeyed citrus, pear and white peach notes are prominent in this beautifully fruited medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that shows additional orange marmalade notes in the mouth. It’s textured, crisp acid, from having not gone though malolactic, gives it focus and zest, and the overall impression is one of brilliant richness subtly touched by smoke, but letting the fruit dominate.Year in year out, this is one of the superstar wineries, not only in Napa Valley and all of California, but in the entire world. It’s the product of visionary John Shafer, who started in 1978 after a successful corporate career. He had the foresight and visionary genius to believe in the microclimates and soils of Stags Leap of the southern Napa Valley. When his son Doug came on board with their brilliant winemaker and Mr. Everything, Elias Fernandez, things soared in quality and diversity. Today, this is a winery that does everything about as perfect as can be. They have kept their feet, heads and egos grounded, and continue to kick proverbial ass with every vintage. They made some of the very finest, possibly the Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage in 2011, and in 2012 and 2013, they have crafted one profound wine after another. For starters, their Chardonnay has always been a non-malolactic Chardonnay, of which 75% is barrel-fermented and the other quarter in stainless steel. As good as it is, it’s hard to believe they produce a whopping 6,400 cases of it. John and Doug Shafer, along with Elias Fernandez, have certainly excelled at turning out gorgeous Merlots that are concentrated and fleshy as well as elegant. A big success for Shafer has been their Stags Leap One Point Five Cabernet Sauvignon. They make between 6,000-7,000 cases of this wine in any vintage. About one-third of their famous Hillside Vineyard, which represents 100% of their flagship wine Hillside Select, goes into this cuvée. I did an entire vertical of the Shafer Hillside, from 1978-2013, but I’ll include the older notes on the erobertparker.com website. What follows are notes on the last four vintages of the Hillside Select, their 2,400-case cuvée of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 32 months in 100% new French oak. Lastly, another sensational wine from the Shafer portfolio is the Relentless. This has been a terrific Rhône Ranger offering since it was first released in 1999, and it continues to be primarily a 89%-97% Syrah blend and the rest Petite Sirah. Like the Hillside Select, it’s aged 32 months in new oak prior to being bottled. I have no idea how long these wines will last, but they’re fabulous to drink young, and certainly 20-25 years is well within reach of just about every top vintage of Relentless.

One of the world’s greatest wines year in and year out is Shafer’s Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. The 2002 was a candidate for perfection the first time I tasted it. The estate keeps this cuvee 32 months in 100% new French oak, so I had a number of chances to see it from barrel. Moreover, I purchased the wine for my own cellar and have had it at least a half dozen times since bottling, and it just gets more profound with each sip. This wine is beyond belief for how it balances its extraordinary richness, purity of personality, and the elegance and finesse of the Stags Leap District with massive cassis fruit, spring flowers, toasty oak and earth. The wine is fabulously concentrated, multidimensional and built like a skyscraper, yet nothing is out of place. The wood, alcohol, acidity and tannin are all in perfect balance. This offering is a tribute to the greatness of Napa Valley, which was recognized by men and women hundreds of years ago, and to the modern day genius of the Shafer family. This 2002 has 50 years of life ahead of it - but why wait!

I am hardly alone in having enormous respect for the Shafer family, whose father, John, started this venerable Stags Leap winery in 1978. John still has an amazingly vigorous constitution as he moves into his eighth decade of life, although his son, Doug, is now carrying the Shafer banner. Since the beginning, they have enjoyed the services of one of the world’s great winemakers, Elias Fernandez. These are the highest scores I have ever given their regular cuvees of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, which again demonstrates what extraordinary winemaking and attention to detail takes place at Shafer. Everything can be recommended, from their Red Shoulder Chardonnay to their bevy of wine made from Bordeaux varietals as well as their famed Relentless, a blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah. This winery has clearly been on the top of its game for two decades and only continues to improve. How admirable is that?

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select, already given a 100-point score, was tasted again. It has everything one could ever want in a prodigious, world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of lead pencil shavings, crème de cassis, vanilla, unsmoked cigar tobacco, licorice and forest floor are all present in this wine that is absolutely remarkable. It’s full-bodied, seamlessly constructed, with great purity and a tremendous 50-60 second finish. This obviously will age 25-30 years, if not a lot longer. This has turned out to be a great, great vintage that seems to grow in stature in the bottle.

Year in year out, this is one of the superstar wineries, not only in Napa Valley and all of California, but in the entire world. It’s the product of visionary John Shafer, who started in 1978 after a successful corporate career.

Possibly the Cabernet Sauvignon of the vintage is Shafer’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Hillside Select. Last year I thought it was a strong effort, but it’s even better now that it’s been bottled. With an opaque black/purple color and notes of subtle burning charcoal embers, blueberry, blackberry and graphite, the wine has a certain Bordelais minerality, but then the richness of Napa kicks in. It’s full-bodied (somewhat unusual for a 2011) with lighter tannins, and no doubt the wine will be on a faster evolutionary track than vintages such as 2010, 2012 and 2013. Nevertheless, the Shafers and Elias said this was the toughest vintage they’d ever experienced. To be able to produce a compelling wine like this is a testament to their extraordinary skills and craftsmanship. This wine can be drunk now or cellared for another 15-20 years.Shafer’s Hillside Estate Vineyard consists of 54 acres all on steep, amphitheater-like, rocky outcroppings and knolls. It receives the full benefit of southeasterly sunlight, and enjoys the afternoon breezes that blow up from the San Francisco Bay channel. An unusual geographic feature, this vineyard is basically a box canyon. The top soil is virtually non-existent as the bed roots that go into the white tofu volcanic soil base rarely extend more than 18 inches before hitting bedrock. This no doubt is a significant reason for the intense flavors achieved by the Hillside Select Cabernet Sauvignon, and why it is able to spend 32 months in 100% new French oak without a woody taste.

Shafer also makes one of the better Merlots. The 2014 Merlot includes 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and is a beauty. Mocha and chocolaty notes intermixed with red cherry, plum and blacker fruits jump from the glass of this perfumed and fragrant style of Merlot.

A dead-ringer (at least aromatically) for Guigal’s single vineyard Cote Rotie La Mouline, the 2002 Just For The Love of It is the greatest California Syrah I have yet tasted. A one-thousand case blend of 96% Syrah, 2% Grenache, and 2% Viognier, it is nearly equal parts Alban, Bien Nacido, and Stolpman fruit with a small amount from both Shadow Canyon and White Hawk. It boasts a provocative perfume of creme de cassis, toast, blackberries, licorice, barbecue spice, and exotic floral scents. Extremely full-bodied, with fabulous intensity, great purity, awesome length, and a finish that lasts over a minute, this classic is a must purchase. Already accessible, it will drink well for 10-15 years.

The 2009 Grenache Upside Down emerges from the glass with layers of dark red fruit as it sweeps across the palate. There is an inner sweetness and sheer depth that make the 2009 compelling. The 11% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre make themselves heard clearly in adding layers of depth and pure richness. Tar, anise and graphite meld together on the rich, dramatic finish. This is a striking wine endowed with tons of pure textural dimension. The 2009 was sourced from Eleven Confessions (72%), Cumulus (22%) and Bien Nacido (6%) vineyards. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021.  

Manfred Krankl calls 2011 the most consistently cold year he has ever seen from start to finish, although he adds that every year since 2008 has been cooler than normal. Unlike 2010, there were no heat spikes or even hot days in 2011. A bit of frost in April reduced tiny yields even more, but in retrospect that was a saving grace, as a full crop might never have ripened under the conditions of the year. Vintage 2010 was marked by a late frost that mostly affected Grenache by reducing yields. The rest of the vintage saw quite a bit of rain along with heat spikes during the summer, which produced big, bold wines. Krankl describes 2009 as a vintage that was shaping up to be great, until the rains arrived at the end of the growing season. With one exception, the 2009s are just as sexy and silky as they were last year. Unfortunately, the 2009 Syrah Estate No Name as of Yet was in no mood to be evaluated, so I will have to wait for another opportunity to taste it. In addition to these wines, I also tasted about a dozen library wines that reconfirmed my opinion, stated last year, that the Sine Qua Non wines have gained in elegance and refinement with the gradual move towards estate-owned vineyards. Sine Qua Non fans will find a lot to get excited about with these current and upcoming releases. I also urge readers to check out Manfred and Elaine Krankl’s newest project, Next of Kyn, also reviewed in these pages, and Sine Qua Non’s new website, which gives consumers a rare look at one of this country’s most compelling estates.

Sweet red cherries, plums, cloves and new leather all flow through to the expressive finish. Given the wine's mid-weight structure, it is best enjoyed over the next dozen of years or so.

With the lowest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in of any of the wines from this vertical, the 2012 final blend was 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Production across the board in 2012 was high, and reflected in the 3,977 cases made at Spottswoode. This is a dramatic, flamboyant, modern-day version of the 2002. Dramatic blueberry, black raspberry and blackcurrant fruit, along with camphor, charcoal, white flowers and foresty notes all emerge from the impressive aromatics that soar from the glass. The intense, explosively rich, full-bodied palate is layered with beautiful purity, stunningly sweet, silky tannins and terrific presence and complexity. This is a gorgeous wine on a relatively fast evolutionary track, I suspect, but certainly it has 30 years of upside left.

Our Sauvignon Blanc is quintessentially Californian, with a beautiful ripeness balanced with wonderful structure and acidity. Grapes from a handful of carefully selected vineyards join our Spottswoode Estate fruit in the composition of this wine. A combination of small, stainless barrels, French oak, and concrete, egg-shaped cuves are utilized in fermentation. This technique results in a complex, rich, and vibrant wine that stands well on its own, pairs beautifully with food, and is further enhanced with a bit of cellaring.An inviting, expressive nose of white peach, tangerine peel, and guava, with orange blossoms and a wisp of gardenia, gives way to a mouth-filling and round palate of beautifully ripe pears and tangerine cream. Smooth and rich, exhibiting wonderful structure and balance. Compelling and exciting—makes us long for the warm spring and summer days that are forthcoming!

A blend of three clones – Dijon clones 114 and 115, as well as Rochioli material – the 2013 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane has a dark ruby color and a fragrant style with floral and earth tones intermixed with strawberries and black cherries.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Cuvée Alyce, which is made from a field blend of Dijon clones 115 and 777, is also backward and restrained. I can totally understand Stephen Hansel’s statement that the 2013 Pinots are very European with their reserved character. This is a big wine, dense, ruby in color, with terrific fruit intensity, but the tannins still dominate, and the wine has good acidity and a backward personality. It’s not austere by any means and should blossom fully with another 1-2 years of bottle age. It could turn out to be a low- to mid-90 pointer. It’s certainly capable of lasting at least a decade.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Estate impresses for its silky, layered personality. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, mint and spices all meld together in a Pinot Noir that is all about balance. Bright floral flavors abound in a silky, layered Pinot that shows the more refined side of the Russian River.

He also has the wonderful Walter Hansel Wine & Bistro on Guerneville Road in Santa Rosa.Hansel reduced the crop size by 20%-30% through crop thinning in 2014 because of irregular berry size and improved the level of concentration. All of the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are bottled unfiltered. 

Walter Hansel var en livslang vinenthusiast som i 1978 besluttede sig for at plante 250 vinstokke. I slutningen af 80-erne var turen kommet til hans søn Stephen Hansel, som besluttede sig for at udvide arealet og samtidig begynde en proces hvor man senere kunne sælge af vinen. 

Første kommercielle årgang var i 1996 hvor man producerede 5000 kasser af Pinot Noir og Chardonnay.

Der produceres både Estate og Enkeltmarksvine, alle vine som på hver deres måde udtrykker klon, jord, placering og klima.

Absolutely magnificent is the 2013 Pinot Noir The North Slope. This wine is deep, rich, with forest floor, blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, licorice and Asian spices. It is full-bodied, somewhat primordial and dense, but muscular, rich, concentrated, and has the biggest upside and potential for complexity of all of the 2013s. Give it another several years of bottle age and drink it over the following decade.

Galloni 94P
The 2013 Pinot Noir North Slope is a bit more lifted and aromatic than the South Slope. Today, the flavors are bright and precise, but there is little in the way of flavor complexity. That will come with time. Instead, it is the wine's nuance and textural finesse that are showing at this stage. Crushed flowers, mint and sweet red berries are laced into the super-expressive finish. There is a lot to like.

The 2013 Pinot Noir South Slope once again stands out for its boisterous, explosive personality. Bold, intense flavors race across the palate as this powerful, resonant Pinot shows off its class and personality. Expressive spice notes wrap around a core of dark red fruits in an expressive Pinot that delivers the goods, and then some.

ROSE OF PINOT NOIR
I have a few rows of pinot noir that rarely reach ultimate ripening so I normally sell these grapes. However, in 2013 I let them hang all the way into October. The result was the sugars stuck at 22 brix but the flavors were very complex for under ripe fruit. Therefore, I tried for the first time Rose of Pinot Noir. We pressed the grapes as wholeclusters like chardonnay and later after fermentation, added back some wine from our pinot barrels to give it the rose color. It is fresh, crisp and a great summer wine.

SAUVIGNON BLANC
Six years ago I helped finance a vineyard in Lake County for my Vineyard Manager and his father. They planted sauvignon blanc, a varietal that thrives in a Lake County climate, with temperature swings from lows to highs of 40 to 50 degrees. The very cool nights (35-40 degrees in the middle of the summer) tend to retard sugar allowing for a long growing season.The results were so good, I started purchasing a small amount of fruit from the 2 1/2 acres they farm, using my methods with low yields; leaf pulling and water conservation.

This is yet another stunning wine from this site, guided by the capable hands of Winemaker and Viticulturalist Bibiana González Rave, who has coaxed from it beguiling layers of complex concentration and sublime notions of tang and salt. The only white from a sea of Pinot Noir grown here, it speaks to what the extreme Sonoma Coast can bring to the variety—a celebration of lemon zest, crisp apple and brioche delicately wrapped in minerality. "Editor's Choice"

Doug Wilder, Purely Domestic Wine Report 97P
Shows a nose of verbena, lime, chalk, licorice, white blossoms leveled with beautiful intensity and purity. Sublimely fresh and vibrant on palate entry, the core is enormous with pear, toast, lime, lemon, honeyed grains and chalk, finishing with crisp, mouth watering green apple. Possesses beautiful length and vitality.

The 2014 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard shows just how well suited this part of the Sonoma Coast is to Chardonnay. A rich, ample wine, the 2014 boasts striking depth and overall balance. Lemon confit, white flowers, vanilla and a host of savory notes accompany the long, extended finish. This is a very polished and distinguished wine from Wayfarer.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Wayfarer Vineyard is supple, expressive and exceptionally beautiful. Plump red cherries, plums, cinnamon and rose petals meld together in a racy, effortless Pinot built on texture and nuance. Beams of acidity and minerality give the 2013 much of its energy and delineation. This is a great introduction to the wines of the property. The Wayfarer is a blend of 12 different clones from various parcels scattered across the property.

Wayfarer is the manifestation of a remarkable place, masterful winemaking, and the drive to go to extremes to create something truly exceptional.

The 2013 Pinot Noir Donnelly Creek Vineyard bursts from the glass with exotic red berries, mint, crushed flowers, spices and pine. Vinification with 50% whole clusters and aging in new oak contribute to the wine's totally translucent personality. Hints of orange peel and rose petal add intrigue and nuance. Weightless, perfumed and super-expressive, Wilde Farm's Pinot Noir is superb.

Pax Mahle makes Wilde Farm wines. He has a light touch and a craftsman’s approach. Together, we work hard to ensure that Pax has the best materials available and that as a team we screw it up as little as possible. We source grapes from old vine, low yield sites, where soil, climate and honest farming practices allow for a full expression of the type of grape and the place the grapes come from. We only offer vineyard designated wines (so far).We pick when the grapes are ripe and ready. Yeasts are ambient, oak is neutral and fermentation happens at its own pace. We sometimes include stems in the primary fermentation, when it makes sense. We bottle our wines unfined and unfiltered. We sell them when we think they are delicious.

Wilde Farm was a place long before it was a wine. Built in 1907 by Samuel Wilde, a successful coffee and spice trader, Wilde Farm began as a horse farm, with a generous kitchen garden of vegetables and herbs. It is of the Colonial Revival style popular at the time. The edifice itself is purposefully constructed, with hand-hewn floorboards, chestnut moldings, high, plastered ceilings and strong, honest lines. Much like its eponymous wine, the house was expertly crafted of honest materials and made to age gracefully. About twenty years ago, my wife and I took over custody of Wilde Farm.

The 2014 Pinot Noir Donnelly Creek Vineyard is pretty, gracious and nicely lifted throughout. Sweet red cherry, sage, mint, orange peel and spice are all nicely delineated. The 2014 was done with 80% whole clusters, which gives it a slightly fleeting personality. My impression is that the 2014 could use a bit more depth, although there is good inner sweetness and pliancy.

Sweet rose petals, violets, mint, licorice and spices meld together in a weightless, translucent wine. The 2012 is endowed with striking perfume and tons of personality. Sweet floral notes, spices and mint inform the fresh, vibrant finish. All the elements are in the right place in this deeply expressive red.

Wilde Farm's 2014 Heritage Red Bedrock Vineyard is outstanding. The most overt, racy wine in the range, Bedrock captures the personality of this site planted with 27 varieties, all cofermented. The inner sweetness and texture speak to Zinfandel, but there is an element of complexity that these field blend wines confer. This is a fabulous showing from the team at Wilde Farm.
