Burly Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
With a striking balance of fruit and a thick viscous mouth feel, our 2012 BURLY Cabernet Sauvignon is truly a remarkable wine sure to provide years of enjoyment. Aromas of cassis and black berries meld seamlessly with notes of chocolate and anise. The rich, plush mouth feel elegantly transforms into sweetness by supple tannins and lovely oak integration. A wonderful mineral note shines through the whole experience. Layered, complex, and lingering, a true wine drinking experience. Wonderful now, this wine will benefit from further bottle aging reaching its peak in 4 to 6 years but drinkable for 12 years.
Wine SpectatorBroad-shouldered but svelte, with a firm mix of gravelly, loamy earth, licorice, sage, dill and cedar flavors. A bumpy but fun trip, like riding in the back of a jeep. Drink now. 2,300 cases made.

Kathryn Kennedy Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2009100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines cover gentle slopes in Saratoga, California on the inland side of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Eight acres of vines were planted on their own roots by Kathryn in 1973. Excellent soil, a climate possessing just the right amount of marine influence, and personal attention combine to yield outstanding grapes. Each vintage is grown by hand and vinified in small lots followed by gentle barrel aging with 90% French oak. The result is big, full-flavored wine with deep color and a decade or more of aging potential. We are very proud to announce that in the fall of 2007 our Estate Vineyard was certified Organic by the CCOF.
Flanagan Cabernet Sauvignon 2012The defining attributes of our 2012 Flanagan Cabernet are its ripe, seamless palate and its power. This wine displays our classic profile of a floral bouquet of violets and irises, but it is the palate that really displays the richness of the 2012 vintage. Deep black fruits, warm rock, mocha, and savory notes of olive and bay leaf flow seamlessly together in a truly beautiful glass of wine. I love that our wines reflect vintage character. The 2006 was opulent, the 2009 structured, the 2011 elegant, and the 2012 powerful. Enjoy!
Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Caymus has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins - as approachable in youth as in maturity.

Our Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe dark berries.
Robert Craig Affinity 2011Hatched from the Cabernet-infused mind of Bob Craig in 1993, this Bordeaux-inspired wine is a blend of the Left Bank Five (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec) with Cabernet Sauvignon commanding the lead on the dance floor. The Cabernet Sauvignon from this hillside property is unusually racy, and mineral laden, even for a boulder strewn, Napa Valley vineyard. The addition of the other four Bordeaux varieties is necessary for the depth, dimension and layers that are present in the wine each vintage; Petit Verdot for color, Malbec for weight, Cabernet Franc for structure and Merlot for luxurious mouthfeel. The fruit is hand picked and hand sorted, then kept in separate lots during fermentation and barrel aging. The resulting Cabernet has an affinity for braised meats, grilled fish, hearty pastas, good books, fireplaces and summer evenings on the patio.
Martin Ray Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Our blend of Sonoma County's sub-appellations expresses a wonderful complexity. The fruit-driven bouquet and palate extends notes of wild blackberry, aromatic violets, spicy persimmon, and mild, dry red pepper with a light oaky touch of caramel. This approachable, medium-bodied Cabernet is not to be underestimated with its structured tannins and perfectly integrated oak influence.
Orin Swift Palermo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Rich aromas of seasoned oak meld effortlessly with ripe boysenberry and candied cassis. The entry of the wine is soft and delicate, but quickly evolves into a serious mid-palate replete with opulent and concentrated flavors of dark fruits. Black currant and kirsch provide background to lively raspberry and cherry notes that create a near endless finish.
Daou Soul Of A Lion 2014The 2014 Daou Estate Soul of a Lion shows beautiful depth of color. This inky purple wine is loaded with aromas of plums, creme de cassis, garrigue and exotic flowers. On the palate, the wine is layered with velvety tannins and shows a unique elegance while being accompanied by extreme intensity and power. Nuanced vanilla bean, toasted spice, graphite, licorice and lead pencil shaving like aromas round out the spectrum flavors. Insanely concentrated, it has a gorgeous harmonious length that extends into a seamless finish which lingers on the senses. Armed with a great tannin structure, it will certainly benefit from laying down for several years.
Robert Foley The Griffin 2014The Griffin - on the Foley family crest in Irish heraldry combines the strengths of the lion, king of beasts, with the eagle, king of the skies. A winemaker's dream is to be artistically free to combine characters into wine that is purely hedonic and non-compliant with varietal regulations, so The Griffin's blend changes with every vintage. Bottled in Spring of 2016, this vibrantly youthful red blend offers aro- mas of red and black berry fruit, rose petals and just a touch of vanilla. The full body is framed by gently gripping fine tannins and a flood of berry fruit. More than half of this blend are classic claret varieties (Cabernet, Merlot, Petit Verdot), which marry with Rhone-rooted varieties (Syrah, Petite Sirah, Charbono). Delicious in its youth, this red blend combines the stuffing and balance to age elegantly for many years.
