Anderson's Conn Valley "Reserve" Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2016) "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Reserve is intense, deceptively medium in body and brooding in style. Lavender, sage, menthol, spice and crème de cassis infuse this striking, delineated Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2013 could use another few years in barrel, but it is quite impressive, even at this early stage. This is a great showing from the 2013."

The Hess Collection Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

We loved the 2012 vintage. Now we're on to the 2013 and it's even better!
94 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2016) "Another sensational effort and probably one of the best wines to emerge from Hess in the last 30 years is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Mt. Veeder, a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Malbec. This is sensational wine with fabulous aromatics of white flowers, licorice, roasted coffee, blueberry and black raspberry liqueur, with pen ink and graphite making an appearance. It is a full-bodied, rich and a compelling effort from Hess."

Peirson Meyer "Miller Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2014

94 Wine Advocate
(10/28/2016) "Two veteran winemakers from the Northern California wine scene - Peirson and Meyer have their own set of wines ranging in production from a low of 45 cases to a high of 500 cases. Most of these are in the 200- to 300- case range. ...The 2014 Pinot Noir Miller Vineyard was treated similarly, but is a much lighter color as it is from 100% Dijon clone 828. This has the forest floor, rose petals, sweet strawberry and cherry notes, but the killer aromatics is what gives this wine sensational appeal. It is medium-bodied, fleshy and should be drunk over the next 5-6 years to take advantage of the exceptional fragrance it offers."

Samsara "Turner Vineyard" Santa Barbara Syrah 2012

93+ Wine Advocate
95+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2015) "Once again, the 2012 Syrah Turner Vineyard is the star of the show at Melville. An exotic mélange of blood orange, violets and spices makes a strong first impression. Deep and beautifully layered on the palate, the Turner offers superb depth and plenty of tannin to back it up. An explosive, vibrant finish only adds to the wine's considerable appeal. This is a real head-turner from SAMsARA and proprietor Chad Melville."

Chalk Hill "Estate Bottled" Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2014

This is the real-deal. A serious Chardonnay from one of California's legendary producers.
92+ Our Score
92 Wine Spectator
(12/15/2016) "Strikes a balance between rich, spicy oak and an intense core of fruit, echoing pear, apple and melon flavors. Maintains equilibrium, ending with creamy, vanilla-scented oak notes. Drink now."

Michael Mondavi "Emblem" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

92 James Suckling
90 Our Score
90 Wine Advocate
(12/30/2015) "The 2013 Emblem Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. It sells at a very modest $35.00. The wine has a deep ruby/purple color, loads of juicy fruit, a medium to full body (about 14.7% natural alcohol), a lush, heady, accessible mouthfeel. This is a steal, and a sleeper of the vintage, and capable of lasting up to a decade or more."

Ridge "East Bench" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2013

90 Wine Advocate
91 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
90 Our Score
(6/2015) Ridge's East Bench bottling is 100% Zinfandel that comes from a single site overlooking Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. As always, it offers exceptional quality that outperforms its price. The style here is about freshness and purity, forgoing the jammy qualities associated with many Zins. A fruit forward attack of mixed red and blue berries lead the way followed by sweet, but subtle, oak spices of vanilla and coconut. The harmonious flavors are beautifully in balance with a soft and round texture that is refined and elegant.

Stolpman Estate Grown Syrah 2014

93 Wine Enthusiast
91 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(9/2016) "The 2014 Syrah Estate is surprisingly succulent for a young Stolpman Syrah, which Peter Stolpman attributes to warmer nights and softer extractions. Dark cherry, plum, mocha and dark spices are fused together in a deep, yet mid-weight, highly expressive Ballard Canyon Syrah. The whole clusters are felt but also very nicely balanced. If this is the future direction for Stolpman, all I can say is the winery has made huge strides in recent years."

Varner "El Camino" Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2014

Typical retail is $25. As we went to press, our price beat every single online listing!
92 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(6/2016) "Despite its very reasonable price, the 2014 Chardonnay El Camino Vineyard delivers serious intensity, richness and nuance. Broad, ample and phenolic, the 2015 exudes all the classic Varner signatures, structure being the most obvious of these. Yellow orchard fruit, mint, candied lemon, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes are front and center. This is one of the most singular Santa Barbara Chardonnays readers will come across. The style and palate weight is more than a little reminiscent of the wines the Varners made in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The 2014 was fermented in steel and aged in a combination of puncheon (25%) and steel, with blocked malo. This is a very serious Chardonnay for $25."

Baileyana "Firepeak" Edna Valley Chardonnay 2014

90 Our Score
93 Wine Enthusiast
(3/2017) "Burgundy-raised vintner Christian Roguenant gets to show his stuff in this line of Firepeak wines. Wet cement, honeysuckle, crisp Asian pear and the slightest hints of tropicality show on the nose, while the palate offers yellow grapefruit, lemon skins, squeezed lime and lime-blossom flavors, wrapped around nervy tension."
