92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The terrific 2012 Tres Picos is one of the finest inexpensive, Grenache-based wines made in the world. This full-bodied beauty boasts a deep ruby color as well as loads of strawberry and black cherry fruit, hints of lavender and crushed rocks, sweet tannin, and a broad, savory mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 3-4 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Nov 2013)

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Seavey’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate explodes from the glass with deep, resonant fruit. Incense, smoke, tobacco and melted road tar flow effortlessly from this big, full-bodied wine. There is no shortage of fruit or tannin in this large-scaled, firm Cabernet Sauvignon. Readers will need to be patient, but there is little denying the 2009 is a jewel of a wine. The 2009 is shaping up to be another magnificent wine from Seavey and oenologist Philippe Melka. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2012)

92 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
(just 8% new oak): Bright yellow. Rather Chablis-like aromas of apple and resin, plus a hint of honey. Sweet and ripe in the nature of the vintage, offering a touch of creaminess to the flavors of fresh peach, apple, herbs and spices. Shows a broad spectrum of ripeness without any obvious extremes. A very successful vintage for this wine." - Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 14)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is meant for up-front, immediate drinkability, and is primarily designed for restaurants. It reveals Montelena’s damp earthiness and spiciness as well as a dark ruby color, no evidence of oak, and medium-bodied, spicy flavors. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. An iconic offering, their Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has long been one of the staples in my private cellar with vintages going back to the 1970s. It has been one of the longest-lived wines in Napa." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Oct 2014)

91 Points - James Suckling:
"A wine with plum, iron and iodine character on the nose and palate. Full to medium body and fine tannins. We always think of Conterno's lovely Barolos but try this. Drink now." - (December 20th, 2013)

Capiaux "Pisoni Vineyard" Pinot Noir 2012 (Santa Lucia Highlands, Monterey County, California) - [ST 91]

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(15.3% alcohol; 40% new oak; Capiaux describes this as his warmest site): Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, licorice, violet and spices on the nose: smells big! Chewy and rich, with excellent intensity to the flavors of blackberry, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. This fat, sweet fruit bomb will offer early appeal but also has a powerful tannic spine and solid acidity for aging." - Stephen Tanzer (May/Jun 14)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage):
"Made by the Italian duo of Giovanni and Folonari Tenute, the 2011 Saggi offers beautiful notes of spice box, cedar, licorice, dried herbs and assorted black cherry and dark currant styled fruit to go with a medium to full-bodied, focused and layered feel on the palate. A blend of 43% Sangiovese, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah, this superb blend has solid concentration (especially in the vintage), notable purity of fruit, and present, yet ripe and nicely integrated tannic grip that comes through on the finish. Give it another year or three and drink bottles through 2023." - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2014)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage):
Made by Randy Dunn, of Dunn Vineyards, and a blend of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Feather is up there with the top Bordeaux varieties of the vintage. Loaded with notions of dark fruits, chocolate, mineral, coffee bean and scorched earth, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, beautiful purity of fruit and a voluptuous texture that only partially conceals edgy, yet ripe, tannin. It has the fruit to be enjoyable now, but will be better in another year or three, and evolve nicely for 12 to 15 years or more. " - Jeb Dunnuck (Jun 2014)

"Very suave and polished, with ripe, pure flavors of blackberry, hoisin sauce and black pepper. Finely textured, this is packed with tar and roasted plum notes, showing plenty of licorice snap and dark chocolate accents on the powerful finish.
