America's most coveted wine, Screaming Eagle remains one of the most compelling estates in Napa Valley. The 2009 Screaming Eagle is insanely beautiful.

Dark red berries, flowers, mint and spices are all woven together beautifully. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the long, seductive finish.

2010 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
100 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2010 Harlan Estate is magnificent. One of the very best wines I have ever tasted at Harlan, the 2010 brings together richness and volume, but with a level of energy and sheer precision I don't think I have ever seen in a young Harlan Estate. Layers of deeply expressive dark red/black fruit, cloves, menthol and new leather flesh out in a seamless wine endowed with stunning balance and class. Iron, melted road tar, tobacco and incense add shades of complexity on the finish. The 2010 has turned out even better than I had originally expected. Today it is epic." (11/2013)

Schrader LPV Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wine Maker's Notes:
This remarkable debut from the Beckstoffer Las Piedras Vineyard offers intense aromas of ripe black and blue fruit, principally blackberries and plums, layered with exotic notes of crushed rock minerality and scorched earth that impeccably carry through as flavors on the palate. The hallmark of this wine is an ability to balance magnificent mass and weight with resplendent fruit character. Luxuriously complete, this premiere release foretells many more great things to come from this esteemed vineyard estate.

Bond Quella Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
Good ruby-red. Nuanced aromas of blackberry, minerals, licorice and wild herbs; a bit more medicinal in character than the 2008 version. Quite closed and inexpressive following the recent bottling, but concentrated dark fruit flavors show a lovely light touch, with mineral and floral notes providing lift. Finishes with serious, toothdusting tannins that will require aging. (94+) (5/ 2012)

Turley Juvenile Zinfandel, California
Though the vast majority of Turley's wines are from single vineyards, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of their old vine sites. They tag the vine when replanting it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from 6-25 years (not all that young), and they pull from some of their best vineyards across California, including the prestigious Hayne and Ueberroth vineyards Robert Parker 90 pts.
