Orin Swift "Papillon" Napa Valley Red 2012

Papillon is Dave Phinney's Bordeaux blend. Over the past few vintages, it has been one of the quickest Orin Swift wines to sell out. The 2010 and 2011 vintages earned Wine Spectator scores of 92 and 93 points. The Wine Advocate just released the following 93 point review for the 2012!
93 Wine Advocate
(12/2014) "The 2012 Proprietary Red Papillon is composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Another big-time winner, it was sourced from multiple AVAs, including Oakville, St. Helena, Howell Mountain and Rutherford. Gorgeous aromas of white chocolate, blackberries, blackcurrants, blue fruits and toasty oak are followed by a full-bodied, layered wine that builds incrementally. The tannins are sweet and well-integrated, and the acidity is sufficient for definition. It is a savory, hedonistic as well as intellectually pleasing wine to enjoy over the next decade or more."

Penfolds "Bin 169" Coonawara Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

95 Our Score
98 James Halliday
(9/2013) "A single vineyard wine, matured for 14 months in new French oak in which it finished the final stages of its fermentation. The bouquet is laden with cassis of startling purity, and while cedary oak is a major player, it is so well-integrated it doesn't overwhelm, let alone challenge, the fruit."

Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

(3/2015) "The 2012 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve was picked from late summer after one of the driest on record. There was better heat accumulation, according to Erik Kramer, but he does not regard it has a hot vintage. It was a low yield at around 1.7 and 1.8 tons per acre, partly due to a preflowering cluster removal. The skin-to-pulp ratio was very high and it was raised in 65% new oak over 16 months. It has a deep garnet color. The bouquet is in stark contrast with strawberry pastille and raspberry coulis, hints of iodine developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit interlaced with sea salt and white pepper. There is an undercurrent of gaminess to this 2012 that lends intrigue toward the finish that gently grips the mouth. Not as opulent as other 2012 Pinot Noirs that I have tasted, but clearly very well crafted by winemaker Erik Kramer and with a prosperous future ahead. Drink: 2016-2028."

Cedric Bouchard "Roses de Jeanne La Boloree" Blanc de Blancs 2012

96+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The highlight in this range, the 2012 Blanc de Blancs La Bolorée is a wine that will make readers weak at the knees. Deceptively medium in body, the Bolorée opens up in the glass to reveal exceptional depth, power and intensity. Historically, the Bolorée has needed a few years in bottle after release to show at its best. I expect that to be the case here as well. There is real thrust to the white orchard fruit, citrus, slate and floral notes, but readers need to be patient. The heady, explosive finish hints at a very bright future. La Bolorée, Bouchard's old-vine Pinot Blanc, is one of the hardest wines anywhere in the world to track down. Those fortunate enough to find it are in for a real treat. Disgorged: April 2016. No dosage."

Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(11/2013) "Spottswoode's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful, immediate and impeccable in its balance. The 2011 doesn't have the layered, explosive personality of some of the iconic vintages, but it isn't too far off that level. Spottswoode fans should drink the 2011 relatively early, while some of the more powerful, structured vintages age. I will not be surprised if the 2011 turns out to be one of the jewels of this vintage. The medium-bodied structure argues for early drinking, but there is more than enough energy and acidity to suggest the 2011 will age gracefully for a number of years. Incidentally, the 2011 is the first Spottswoode Cabernet under 14% in a decade. Once again, the winemaking team led by Aron Weinkauf has done a fabulous job. The 2011 is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot."

Krug "Grande Cuvee" Brut Champagne NV

95 Wine Spectator
(10/31/2016) "This mouthwatering Champagne shows a lovely sense of finesse, with firm acidity deftly married to a rich profile of crème de cassis, toasted brioche and lime blossom, accented by hints of café au lait, singed orange peel and exotic spice. Long and plush on the finish. Disgorged 2014. Drink now through 2024."

Signorello "Padrone" Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

97+ Wine Advocate
(10/2015) "This is a fabulous wine, meant to evolve over three decades. It offers up notes of charcoal, scorched earth, blackcurrant, blackberry, chocolate and a touch of espresso. A wine of great intensity, full-bodied opulence and a multilayered mouthfeel, this is a formidably endowed, serious Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine from vineyards with some of the best fruit on the estate. Drink it over the next 30 years."

Bruno Clavelier Chambolle Musigny 2008

92+ Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
90-93 Burghound
(1/2010) "This is even more elegant and refined than the Noirots and more complex aromatically as well with a minerally, cool and sublimely rendered pinot fruit that runs primarily toward the red side of the spectrum that is followed by beautifully detailed, racy and remarkably fine middle weight flavors that culminate in a linear and borderline strict finish as there is some austerity. This delivers a striking combination of power and finesse with excellent finishing drive. Drink: 2016+"

Freemark Abbey "Bosche Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

98+ Wine Advocate
(10/2016) "The famous Bosche Vineyard is a spot in Rutherford composed of gravelly, loamy soil and situated just at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. A blend of 93.8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6.2% Merlot, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard was aged 28 months in French oak. This vineyard has turned out many a classic wine capable of lasting 30-40 years, and this 2013 is one of the all-time great Bosche Cabernet Sauvignons. It offers an inky ruby/purple color, a gorgeous nose of graphite, black cherry, wood spice and barbecue notes, enormous body and richness, and a heady, full-bodied, long finish of 50+ seconds with moderately high tannins. This is a great classic from Napa, but not one for drinking over the near-term. Give it 7-8 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 50 years."

(12/15/2014) "Highly aromatic, with mulling spices and dried tea rose notes lacing pureed blackberry and plum pie flavors, this is vibrant and refined. A bright version that remains light-footed despite a rich, expansive profile. Candied kumquat, licorice snap and salted almond hints linger on the long finish. Drink now through 2029."
