Past Reviews: March 2012 Issue

94 2007 Fortuna Merlot (Oakville)
One of the best Merlots of the vintage. Does what Merlot's supposed
to do, flatter the palate with soft, voluptuous richness. Blackberry pie,
red cherry, currant, licorice, mocha, bacon and pepper flavors flood
the mouth, leading to a long, spicy finish. Defines the opulent, cult
style of California Merlot. —S.H.
Retail: $60 | Wine Club: $48

93 2008 Leopoldina Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)
A single-vineyard wine whose grapes evidently were allowed to get very
ripe. Cabernet doesn't get much richer than this, with massive waves
of blackberries, black cherries, currants, dark chocolate and minty
oak. Earns extra points for the elegance of its tannin structure. Drink
now–2015. —S.H.
Retail: $75 | Wine Club: $60

92 2008 Amoenus Cabernet Sauvignon (Calistoga)
The extra heat of Calistoga shows in this wine's softness, which limits
its ageability. On the other hand, it's supremely ripe in blackberries,
cherries, currants and milk chocolate, while oak adds elaborate layers
of buttered toast and caramel. Drink now–2015. —S.H.
Retail: $75 | Wine Club: $60

92 2008 Fortuna Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)
Scores high on the deliciousness factor, with waves of blackberries,
blueberries, currants, dark chocolate and smoky oak. A little on the
soft side, which might limit ageability, but it sure is opulent. —S.H.
Retail: $75 | Wine Club: $60

91 2009 Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)
Softly delicious, this Cabernet is perfect for drinking now. Its blackberry,
currant and cocoa flavors are housed in wonderfully ripe,
accessible tannins. Shows the elegance of a superior Napa Cab. —S.H.
Retail: $40 | Wine Club: $32
