"The 2010 Oliver’s Blend is gorgeous. A deep, intriguing wine, the 2010 is loaded with considerable aromatic and flavor complexity. Smoke, bacon fat, ash, incense, tobacco, plums and black cherries meld together in the glass. There is an intense vein of underlying minerality that gives the wine much of its focus and energy. It is beautiful, even at this early stage. In 2010 the blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot."

2012 Louis Martini Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma

"One of those great values is the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma (87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Sirah and the rest Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Franc that achieved 13.9% alcohol). The wine’s pH of 3.8 probably explains its silky texture. There are 420,000 cases of this dense wine that exhibits lots of black currant and black cherry fruit intertwined with background earth and oak (it was aged in tanks with French and American staves). This medium to full-bodied Cabernet reveals excellent purity as well as lots of flavor intensity." -Robert Parker, Jr.

2011 Skipstone Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Oliver's Blend

"Skipstone’s 2011 Oliver’s Blend shows plenty of the energy and tension typical of Alexander Valley Cabernets. Iron, smoke and graphite provide the backbone for an expressive core of dark red fruit. Overall, the 2011 has a bit less density than the 2010 because of the vintage, but there is plenty of Alexander Valley minerality. The blend relies a little less heavily on Cabernet Sauvignon (85%) and more on Merlot (15%) than has typically been the case."

2011 Peter Michael Les Pavots Cabernet Sauvignon

"The 2011 Les Pavots (3,086 cases) is composed of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Its chocolaty fudge-like notes intermixed with espresso roast, black and red currants, smoky barbecue and underbrush are followed by a deep, rich, full-bodied, outstanding red wine that should drink well for 10-15 years." -Robert Parker, Jr.
