Cab's for Dad's
Get your favorite dad a great bottle of Cabernet to celebrate this weekend. We have you covered from $20-$200.

2014 Daniel Cohn Bellacosa Cabernet Sauvignon...$19.99
We have learned that following Robert Parker on Twitter can be a good thing, thanks for the heads up on 2013 Sebastiani Gravel Bed Red which we discovered via Twitter and it ended up getting 97 Points
Robert M Parker on Twitter "Excellent $25 #Cabernet from #Napa—a super value!"
“A cabernet I had last night - Daniel Cohn’s 2014 Bellacosa, a delicious supple, and savory wine that defies the stratospheric Napa pricing game. Check it out!” - ROBERT PARKER
Robert Parker said is was a super value at $25, but it is an even better value at our store as we are offering it at only $19.99

2013 Stags' Leap Winey Cabernet Sauvignon...$35.98
A wine with purity and definition. Ultra-fine tannins hold together a red with subtle berry, walnut, forest floor and mushroom character. Very fine indeed. Better in 2020 but so beautiful now.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
2012 Hidden Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon...$55.99
2012 Hidden Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope...$55.99The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 55 Degrees Slope exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as beautiful, sweet crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, licorice and forest floor notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades.
Rated 94/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2013 Far Niente Bella Union Cabernet Sauvignon $64.98
The 2013 Bella Union presents a luscious nose of ripe black cherry, plum, strawberry, opulent berry compote and cassis. The entry is rich and inviting with succulent flavors reminiscent of cherry pie. The palate builds to trademark Rutherford dust mingled with chewy tannins, offering a mouth-filling, integrated texture, as hints of baking spices linger on a beautiful finish.

2012 Dunn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon...$82.99

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, which includes 65% Coombsville fruit from John Caldwell’s vineyard and the rest from Howell Mountain, is a big, deep, dramatic Cabernet Sauvignon, much in keeping with the vintage’s character. It is full-bodied and displaying flashy, flamboyant blueberry and blackberry fruit, licorice and background earth and oak, it is voluptuous and ideal for drinking over the next 15 or more years.

Rated 93/100 Wine Advocate

2011 Silver Oak Napa Valley Cabernet...$95.99
Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant representation of Napa Valley Cabernet from a cool vintage. It presents an opaque garnet hue in the glass and reveals aromas of sandalwood and roasted meats. Flavors of vanilla, coffee beans and raspberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure through 2029.

2007 Soter Finale Cabernet...$139.99
This wine is Tony Soter's last Cabernet, and his last Napa Valley wine! As both a debut and a grand finale, it is a truly special bottling commemorating a 30 year career that involved making many acclaimed wines for exceptional producers, namely: Araujo, Dalla Valle, Etude, Viader, Shafer and Spottswoode. More than a piece of vinous memorabilia, this wine makes a parting statement about what Napa Cabernet can be, what it was and what it has meant to this acknowledged master of the craft. Both the 2007 and 2006 vintages are represented in this bottling, where the blend of both years together simply made for the most compelling wine.
Only 900 cases produced.

2013 Peter Michael Les Pavots..$181.99

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Pavots, which is their proprietary red wine blend from Knights Valley, is a killer effort, and one of their all-time greats, ranking right up there with the 2007 or 1997. A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, there are 3,600 cases of it. The wine displays plenty of mocha, chocolate, blackberry, creosote and charcoal in an incredibly complex fragrance. Full-bodied and opulent, it shows, loads of tannin, a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco and plenty of black and blue fruits. Opaque purple to the rim, this wine is in need of a good 5-6 years of cellaring and certainly has 30-40 years of life in it.
Rated 98+/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2012 Dominus Proprietary Red...$199.99

Flirting with perfection, the 2012 Dominus is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. Five thousand cases were produced, a relatively modest amount from this large vineyard’s big crop. Christian Moueix told me that there was plenty of heat in 2012, but there were no excessive hot spells that can plague Napa Valley vintners during the growing season and harvest. This wine’s opaque plum/purple color is accompanied by a beautiful nose of sweet crème de cassis, a touch of background oak (only 40% new oak is used), spice box, cedarwood, black cherries and a hint of spring flowers. The complex, intense aromatics are followed by a deep, opulent, multidimensional, full-bodied wine with not a hard edge to be found. Everything is seamlessly crafted in this beauty and the vintage’s abundant richness is well-displayed. This 2012 can be drunk in its exuberant youthfulness or cellared for another 20-25 years.

Rated 99/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
