Léoville-Poyferre 2003, 3L
Cabernet Sauvignon from St. Julien, Bordeaux

"I have had this wine three times out of bottle, rating it 97 once and 98 twice. It is a colossal success and a potential legend in the making. Its saturated, dense inky/blue/purple color offers up notes of crushed rocks, acacia flowers, blueberries, black raspberries, and creme de cassis. A synthesis of power and elegance, this multi-layered wine has spectacular concentration, sweet but high tannin, and low acidity A stunning effort that showcases this legendary terroir, it is a brilliant, brilliant success. The quintessential Leoville Poyferre?" 98 Points Robert M. Parker Jr, Wine Advocate

Hudelot-Noëllat Romanée-Saint-Vivant 2016, 0.75L
Pinot Noir from Vosne Romanee, Burgundy

"The 2016 Romanée-St.-Vivant from Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat is quite black fruity this year, but perfumed, elegant and soil-driven at the same time and this is going to be a superb example of the vintage. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a youthful blend of back raspberries, sweet dark berries, a lovely base of minerality, dark chocolate, a touch of fresh nutmeg, gamebird and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, long and velvety, with a superb core, lovely focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and a long, vibrant and very elegant finish. Fine, fine juice." 96 Points John Gilman, View From the Cellar

Bryant Family Vineyard Bettina 2016, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernetr franc / Petit Verdot from Napa Valley, California

"Dark, sumptuous and beautifully textured in the glass, the 2016 Bettina is positively stellar. All the elements come together effortlessly in the glass. Crème de cassis, blueberry jam, spice, new leather and menthol develop, but it is the wine's exceptional balance and breeding that stand out most. Medium in body and super-refined, the 2016 is a real pleasure to taste today. As a reminder, the Bettina is a blend made from various David Abreu vineyards." 96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Bryant Family Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2016, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Pritchard Hill, California

"Composed of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon entirely from the Pritchard Hill estate and aged in 90% new oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and has a disarmingly profound red roses and red and black currant nose with wild blueberries and yeast extract accents plus tapenade, tilled soil, subtle exotic spices and pencil shavings and the faintest waft of lavender. The palate is ethereal in its weight with a medium to full-body supported by firm yet perfectly ripe, grainy tannins structuring the tightly wound savory layers and leading to a very long, fragrant earth finish. So poised, so classy, so Bryant." 100 Points Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2015, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga, California

"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon charges from the gate with exuberant red and black cherries notes, black currants and mulberries with a beautiful roses and lavender perfume, plus hints of sandalwood and cinnamon stick. Full-bodied, concentrated and downright explosive in the mouth, it is still wearing loads of gorgeous puppy-fat fruit flavors, offering suggestions of the complex, multilayered blockbuster that it will emerge into. The structure deserves its own mention: wonderful, seamless freshness and oh-so-fine, pixelated tannins, with an extraordinary persistence of fruit and mineral nuances. Wow." 100 Points Wine Advocate

Hundred Acre Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Wraith 2014, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California

"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Wraith opens with compelling crème de cassis, wild blueberries, anise, chocolate mint and black earth scents plus suggestions of candied violets, cinnamon stick, tar, cigar box and smoked meats. Full-bodied, rich, super firm and built like a brick house, the palate offers layer upon layer of very tightly wound, subtly nuanced flavors leading to a very long, very perfumed and minerally finish. If any Hundred Acre wine can live for 100 years, this is certainly a contender." 100 Points Wine Advocate

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard CCS 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"For some reason I have a sweet spot for Schrader’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS, which, like the 2007, merits a perfect rating. That should set up some very interesting competitive tastings in the future. Made from a particular block of Clone 4 planted in the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard, there is something just broader, deeper, more multidimensional and more subtle without losing any of the great intensity, purity and richness these wines possess that gives the CCS an amazing character. Keep in mind, as my editor pointed out to me, this is the third straight vintage of this cuvee to merit a perfect score, which must be the first of its kind in 32 years of critiquing wines. Blueberry pie intermixed with creme de cassis, licorice, subtle oak and forest floor notes are followed by an extraordinary wine of staggering richness, luxurious fruit and seamlessness. This is the kind of wine that simply has it all, and I think it could easily be inserted in a tasting against the greatest first-growth Bordeaux or any other profound Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa or elsewhere and hold its own, if not dominate the tasting. There is a remarkable character to this wine that will be fascinating to follow over the next 25-30 years." 100 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon CCS Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard 2013, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"There is something ethereal about the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS, a wine that I tend to give more perfect scores to than of the other Schrader offerings. This is clone 4 from a special block of the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville, and it always seems to have these incredible, explosive aromatics ranging from blueberry to blackberry to cassis to spring flowers and lead pencil shavings. It’s always one of the more seductive wines early on, with sweet, velvety tannins, a plush, succulent mouthfeel, full-bodied splendor and majestic texture. This is a killer effort of great intensity and presence. Drink it over then next 25-30 years." 100 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014, 3L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot / Malbec from Napa Valley, California

"COMMENTARY: Silver Oak keeps on truckin', and the winery's 2014 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon marks a new era for the winery. Now under the stewardship of winemaker Nate Weis—he's the winery's third winemaker in its 45-year history. Nate worked with the previous winemaker Daniel Baron (just as Baron did with Justin Meyer before his retirement). The changes, though somewhat subtle, now showcase just a little more brightness of fruit. TASTING NOTES: This wine displays a seamless synergy of all its parts. Its well-choreographed aromas and flavors of black fruit and oak accents would pair beautifully with a well-marbled, grilled ribeye or even an oven-baked crown roast of lamb." 94 Points Wilfred Wong

Sine Qua Non Syrah A Shot in the Dark Eleven Confessions Vineyard 2006, 0.75L
Syrah from California, California

"The soon-to-be-released 2006 A Shot in the Dark is composed of 96.5% Syrah and 3.5% Viognier from the 11 Confessions Vineyard in the cool Santa Rita Hills. Performing better from bottle than it did from barrel, this prodigious red exhibits incredibly velvety tannins, a seamless style, and no noticeable oak (which is remarkable given the fact it spent 32 months in barrel). Dense purple to the rim with an extraordinary perfume of blueberry pie, blackberries, soy, Asian spices, and hints of forest floor and charcoal, this is a complex, rich, seamless, well-balanced tour de force in winemaking." 100 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
