98 FOYT
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
No. 77; Mount Veeder - Napa Valley $85
We have to repeat ourselves from the Meadowcroft 2011 Mt. Veeder cab: Imagine all of the best qualities from this appellation buddle-up into one cab and thatís what this wine is. Beautiful black (including cassis) and red fruit in just enough bay/eucalyptus, olives, oak and hints of earth. Solid yet soft, rugged yet smooth, this is a joy from nose to stomach. Excellent! (tasted 3/4/15)

98 GHOST BLOCK
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Single Vineyard; Yountville - Napa Valley $100

Rich, smooth and sexy on the palate, this cab is wonderfully balanced, offers full-bodied flavors, and seems to melt in your mouth in its long, lingering finish. Superb!

Beautiful blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, currant, spice, vanilla and oak. On the palate, this is a rich, superbly-crafted wine with lots of character. Itís spicy and bold yet smooth and round, and the finish is wonderfully long and round.

98 SOL ROUGE
2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
Red Hills - Lake County $32

98 SOL ROUGE
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Mountain Reserve - Napa/Lake Counties $100
Doesnít get much better than this. Beautiful rich aromas of blackberry, black currant, dark raspberry and plum, with sides of clove, coffee/black tea and oak. Smooth and elegant, this concentrated wine fills the mouth with abundant flavor, firm tannins and a nice long, lingering spicy finish.

98 SOL ROUGE
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley $75
Distinct Napa valley cab nose of black and red fruits, bits of anise and licorice, and the balance of spice and oak. On the palate this is a very elegant wine, offering rich, round flavors leading to a long, lingering finish. Excellent!

98 THE WINERY SF
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Diamond Mountain $150
You know from the first whiff that this wine is going to be a stunner. Layers of blackberry, black currant, nuts, plum and cherry/black cherry are embraced by blueberry, licorice, chocolate and oak. This is a superbly-crafted, full-bodied wine that just never stops giving on the palate. A bit tight now, a few years will only make it better.

98 VENGE
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Family Reserve - Oakville-Napa Valley $125
You know from the moment you first smell this wine that itís going to be a stunner. Layers of blackberry, black currant, herbs, plum and cherry/black cherry are embraced by blueberry, licorice, chocolate and oak. This superbly-crafted, full-bodied wine just never stops giving on the palate. And the best part is the wonderfully-long, round tannin finish. Thatís what makes this wine distinctive!

97 FORCHINI
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Proprietor's Reserve - Dry Creek Valley $32

97 FOYT
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Mount Veeder - Napa Valley $75
A pretty nose of blackberry, currant, cherry and dark raspberry enveloped in spice, vanilla and oak. With time this will be a great wine, but right now (12/21/12) itís still a bit closed and chewy. Itís going to be a great wine, and needs to be decanted if opened soon.

97 FREI BROTHERS
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Reserve - Alexander Valley $27

97 HINDSIGHT
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Howell Mountain - Napa Valley $75
This is what you expect from a Howell Mountain cab. Itís bold, spicy, rich and flavorful, showcasing black and red fruit flavors, some spice/clove notes, minerals, dust and some chocolate and oak to finish. At first itís a bit tight, but if you allow it to breathe you wonít be disappointed! (tasted 12/5/16)

Napa Valley College Vineyard - Napa Valley $40
A lot like the Foyt cab from this vineyard, but with a little more stuffing. Pretty red and black fruit flavors, with the addition of plum and a bit of cola, in a semi-spicy body leading to a smooth, round-tannin finish. Like the Foyt, beautiful from sniff to swallow! (tasted 3/4/15)

Beautiful aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, licorice and raspberry, with complements of spice, chocolate, vanilla and toasted/smoky oak, with a dash of tobacco and black tea. On the palate this is a smooth, sexy wine delivering all of the aromas in a plush, well-balanced, flavorful body, leading to a finish steeped a bit heavy in oak but there's just enough fruit to pull it off. Wonderful! (tasted 11/9/15)

97 STEPHEN VINCENT

97 THE WINERY SF
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Howell Mountain $150
Much like the Diamond Mountain, this is a pretty intense wine with layers of blackberry, black currant, nuts, plum and cherry/black cherry are embraced by blueberry, licorice, chocolate and oak. Well-balanced and a mouthful, the finish is a bit sticky, so decant or let it breathe a bit before drinking.

97 VENGE
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
Bone Ash Vineyard - Napa Valley $76
The nose is a little shy at first, but once this wine opens it displays wonderful black and red fruit aromas, complimented by a little spice and just the right amount of oak. The palate delivers the promise of the nose, offering a soundly-structured, full-bodied wine rich in flavors and ending in a well-balanced finish.

97 WILLIAM HILL
2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Bench Blend - Napa Valley $45

96 BRUTOCAO
2010 Cabernet Sauvignon
Contento Vineyard - Mendocino $24
Pretty aromas of cherry, blackberry, raspberry, cassis/anise, chocolate, vanilla and oak. Still a bit tight on the palate, experience dictates that this wine will get better with a little age. The rich fruit and secondary characteristics are nicely balanced, the body is a little firm but flavorful, and the finish is a little chewy but full. Decant now or age a year or so.

96 BRUTOCAO
2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Reserve - Mendocino $36
Beautiful nose of mature blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, plum and spices matched with leather/saddle leather, cigar ash, vanilla and oak. This wine has a nice, spicy character, with everything coming together on the palate in a well-balanced, smooth wine with a nice round-ish finish.

96 HINDSIGHT
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate Calistoga - Napa Valley $65
This wine is a bit lighter in style than the others produced by Hindsight, but it packs just as much flavors and character. Look for dark cherry, blackberry, raspberry, brambleberry, roasted coffee, black tea, cedar, leather and oak. Itís all there! A tad chewy at this point, but this wine is definitely tasty, providing a wonderful spicy kick on the finish. (tasted 12/5/16)

A pretty nose of blackberry, currant, cherry and dark raspberry enveloped in spice, vanilla and oak. With time this will be a great wine, but right now (12/21/12) itís still tight, chalky and chewy. Still, itís a great wine and should be decanted if you have no patience.

94 VINA ROBLES
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate - Paso Robles $24
A nose full of dark fruit: blackberry, black currant, licorice, black cherry and plum, with complements of roasted coffee, tobacco and oak. This wine is packed full of flavor, but is a little stiff/angular, and needs some air or time to soften it up. If you let it breath or cellar it for a year or so it should blossom nicely.
