A wine with fabulous upside potential, this idyllic expression of Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, emerges from the winery’s high elevation vineyard where the explosive terroir manifests perfectly in this exceptional, award-winning Cabernet. Perpetually high scoring, the previous vintage was named Best Cabernet at the Lake County Wine Awards Competition, where it earned a Double Gold Medal and outperformed some of the area’s top wines. Perennially, Obsidian Ridge is one of the most full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignons on the market at under forty per bottle… At under thirty per bottle it leaves the competition in the dust.

Another absolutely gorgeous statement for Cabernet Sauvignon, emerging from the Totem Ridge Vineyard, located on the Southern Edge of the prized Knight’s Valley AVA. One of California’s crown jewels, Knights Valley lies just to the Northwest of Calistoga, and it’s home to iconic producers like Peter Michael and Anakota… Vivid and provocative aromas flow extravagantly from the glass, beginning with a burst of dark red fruits, and transitioning to distinctive truffle, cedar wood, spice box and vanilla crème de cassis.

Julien then gained valuable, first-hand experience as Director of Winemaking for Philippe Melka at elite Napa Valley producers like Lail, Gemstone, Hundred Acre, Vineyard 29, Mastery, and other premium brands.
From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Le Pich has a deep ruby/purple color to the rim, sweet cassis and blackberry fruit, licorice, incense and well-disguised oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, ripe and impressive. It should age nicely for 10-15 years and it’s a real sleeper of the vintage.“ 91 Points | Retails at $

Oozing with provocative dark berries and lavish extract, Lewis Cellars’ 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet beautifully delineates the full spectrum of gloriously persistent flavors. Poised for perfection, this monumental effort boasts striking purity and a multitude of nuances that continually unmask new components with aeration. Former professional Indy race car driver Randy Lewis has taken the wine world by storm. In fact, the 2013 Lewis Napa Cabernet Sauvignon was recently named Wine Spectator’s #1 Wine of 2016. As you can well image, with a review like that, there was an immediate run on the current release (2014). Retails at $

Bordering absolute perfection… in just the third vintage of this rising star and soon to be cult classic, this superlative Cabernet Sauvignon has gotten incrementally more profound with each and every vintage. It’s made by 100 Point winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, whom you may recognize from Schrader, Revana, GTS, Maybach, Gemstone and Outpost. Brown made history as the first American winemaker to receive a perfect 100 Point score from the Wine Spectator, and has had more than a dozen 100 Point wines in his career. Your Price $89.99
From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Purlieu was aged in 70% new French oak for 22 months. This just has a Napa appellation, but is very concentrated — even profoundly so — and I have to argue that it’s even deeper, richer and potentially even finer than the Martinez Vineyard from Pritchard Hill. Very long, impressive and intense, this looks to be a great value in the scheme of Napa Cabernet pricing. It is also no shy wine at 15.5% alcohol. This is a big-time sleeper of the vintage. Drink now-2030.” 96 Points | Your Price $94.99
Dispersing extravagant levels of richness, Revana’s new Terroir Series Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting at the seams with dark fruits, creme de cassis and mocha. The winery solidified themselves as a top producer in Napa Valley in 2010 when they secured the #4 spot on the prestigious Wine Spectator top 100 List… amazingly, it was also the #1 Cabernet Sauvignon on the list that year. It’s now made by 100 Point winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown, whom you may recognize from Schrader, Revana, GTS, Maybach, Gemstone and Outpost. Your Price $105

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, Issue 221
Rating: 98 Points
“On the valley floor, with an almost Châteauneuf du Pape layer of small stones, is the Aida Estate, one of my favorite vineyards just north of St. Helena. The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged 20 months in three-fourths new French oak. The good news is that there are 800 cases of this magnificent wine, with a somewhat Graves-like scorched-earth, charcoal, burning ember-scented nose, with notes of hot earth, blackberry and cassis fruit. Big, full-bodied, exuberant and rich, this thick, unctuously textured, purple wine should drink beautifully for 25-30 or more years.” Your Price $249/btl
From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate,
Rating: 98+ Points
“The 2013 Obsidian (625 cases) is a similar but slightly different blend than its predecessor (72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 7% Petit Verdot, and the rest small portions of Malbec and Merlot). It has an opaque purple color and a stunning nose of acacia flowers, blackberries, licorice, forest floor, mocha/chocolate, and gobs of cassis fruit. Great intensity, a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel, stunning purity, and a length of 45+ seconds make for an exquisite, full-throttle, yet beautifully intense Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that should dink well for 20-30 years.” $175/btl (18 bottles available – subject to prior sale and availability)
