Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee 2013, Sonoma Valley
Wine Advocate -
“The outstanding 2013 Mountain CuvĂ©e Proprietary Red, which is 80.4% Merlot, 17.4% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, was aged ten months in a combination of new and used oak. The good news is that there were 16,000+ cases of this outstanding wine. Dense purple in color with a big beautiful nose of black cherries, cassis, chocolate and espresso roast, this opaque, full-bodied wine has gorgeous purity, a beautifully layered texture and a heady, rich finish. This is a stunner and quite a steal in the marketplace. ”
90 Points – Robert Parker

Branham Jazz 2013, Napa Valley
Deep garnet in color, this 2013 vintage shows off an exuberant nose of white flowers and dried apricots. The palate has notes of dried fruit, earth, leather, soy and black tea with nuances of menthol and cinnamon stick. Full bodied and with a generous mouthfeel, it is nicely balanced with a medium level of fine grained tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long and spicy.

House of Cards 2014, Napa Valley
Wine Advocate – ” The House of Cards 2014 Napa Valley Red Wine is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 9% Zinfandel and 6% Syrah. This is a real sleeper of the vintage, a delicious bistro-style red with loads of personality and character. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, spice, supple, velvety texture, medium body and long finish. This is something with serious flavor, intensity and character.”
89 Points – Robert Parker

Trefethen Dragon’s Tooth 2014, Napa Valley
This alluring blend presents aromas of blackberry and cracked pepper, with hints of cinnamon and other baking spices. The palate features flavors of red currant and wood smoke leading to a long, elegant finish that would disarm the fiercest of dragons. Malbec brings color and diversity of fruit; Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon bring darker fruit and robust structure. Food Affinities: This blend shines with leaner cuts of meat like flank, sirloin and skirt steak. Also serve with roasted lamb or pork roast drizzled with a dark fruit reduction sauce.

Relic Ritual GSM 2013, Napa Valley
2013 was a great yeear and this GSM has great length and more openness on the palate. Aromas of blueberry, marionberry liquor, white and black peppercorn, rosemary, dried thyme and plum flowers fill the glass. Deep layers of earthy black and blue fruits, grilled bread and sassafras give flavor while the usual full-blown,
