Cedric Bouchard "Roses de Jeanne Les Ursules" Blanc de Noirs 2012

94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2016) "The 2012 Blanc de Noirs Les Ursules is another knockout. Here it is the freshness and energy of Pinot Noir that makes the strongest impression. White orchard fruit, flowers, white pepper and mint give the Ursules its distinctly high-toned personality. The interplay between the richness of the Pinot Noir and inherent tension that characterizes all of these wines is dazzling. Scents of orchard fruit, spice, herb and flowers infuse the creamy, voluptuous layered finish. Disgorged: April 2016. No dosage."

Spottswoode Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

98 James Suckling
95 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
96+ Wine Advocate
(10/2014) "The opaque purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a glorious bouquet of crème de cassis, spring flowers, a Pauillac-like lead pencil note, and background new oak. The overall impression is one of restraint combined with richness. This full-bodied effort possesses good acidity and ripe tannin. It has been crafted for the long-term. The hallmarks of great Spottswoode wines are their purity and elegance combined with serious power. The 2012 has that in abundance. This youthful, reserved Cabernet will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring, and will keep for two decades or more."

Il Marroneto "Madonna Delle Grazie" Brunello di Montalcino 2012

99 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2017) "Alessandro Mori is the Sangiovese whisperer: l'uomo che sussurrava il Sangiovese. I need to say it in Italian, too, because it sounds so beautiful. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna Delle Grazie is a phenomenal wine that speaks so highly of the potential of the mighty Tuscan grape, Sangiovese. This wine mirrors all the greatest attributes of the 100-point 2010 edition. Most significantly, it delivers profound purity and a most authentic varietal voice that sings both the high notes and the bass-baritone. First you have the wine's dark ruby appearance that is brilliant and vibrant but beautifully concentrated. Then you have the multilayered bouquet that skillfully presents ethereal notes of wild berry and grilled herb on first nose. Those lighter tones lift gracefully to reveal substantial aromas of dark fruit, spice, tobacco and white truffle that form the wine's lasting aromatic core. The mouthfeel is feather light in texture, but don't underestimate its power or persistence. This is a true gem of Italian enology and sadly only 6,200 bottles were made. Drink Date: 2018 - 2040."

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."

Domaine Serene "Evenstad Reserve" Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
94 Wine Enthusiast

93 Wine Advocate
(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."

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."

Blackbird Vineyards "Paramour" Napa Valley Red 2012

A brilliant combination of top-tier Bordeaux quality and Napa opulence.
93+ Vinous, Antonio Galloni
94+ Our Score
(8/2015) The "Paramour" is a Cabernet Franc and Merlot blend that echoes such greats as Cheval Blanc and Angélus. A core of blackberry fruit is accompanied by elements of chocolate and baking spice with distinctly herbal and green pepper notes carrying to the finish. Like the other 2012s, the tannins are perfectly integrated, giving a lush and sensuous mouthfeel. With a slightly green edge and notes of red clay and pencil shavings it is very Bordeaux-like and very impressive.

Silver Oak Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

The 2012 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has just arrived at Vin Chicago! While many top producers have already released their 2013 and even 2014 vintages, it is the longstanding philosophy of Silver Oak to hold on to their wines until they are ready to drink. While we have not yet tasted this release, the overall quality of Napa's 2012 vintage leads us to have high expectations. We offer it for the very lowest price authorized by the winery. A penny less and they'd pull our allocation!

Turnbull "Black Label" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

94 Wine Spectator
(10/31/2015) "Brimming with black licorice, blackberry, cedary oak, pencil shavings and mocha notes, this is a powerful and firmly tannic effort that shows a pleasantly rustic edge on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 850 cases made. "

Freemark Abbey "Bosche Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

97 Wine Advocate
(12/2015) "The classic 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Bosche Vineyard is 90.1% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest 9.9% Merlot, aged 26 months in oak. This is one of the iconic wines of Napa, and one of the great vineyard sources coming from Rutherford on foothill bench soils at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. This is one of the finest examples of this wine I've ever tasted, and there have been many. The wine shows plenty of loamy soil notes intermixed with blackberry, cassis, cedar wood and spice box. It's full-bodied, shows terrific intensity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel and moderate tannin in the finish. It still needs cellar time - and 5-6 years should bring forth plenty of magic, but this wine will also last 30-40 years."
