2020 Dalla Valle & Ornellaia, DVO, Napa Valley 3x75cl

RP96+
Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot Vintage production: 300 cases A combination of history, innovation, and masterful winemaking have seen DVO firmly establish a ‘Cult’ status among the... world’s collectors and has quickly taken its position on the most exclusive restaurant wine lists. This is the third vintage crafted by Maya Dalla Valle and Axel Heinz, and for us it’s the most expressive, tantalising release to date. There’s a palpable energy to the 2020, driven by the three exceptional vineyards hand-picked by this dynamic duo: Vine Hill Ranch in the southwest corner of Oakville brings intensity and depth; Oakville Ranch in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains in eastern Oakville lends structure and concentration; Farella in cool-climate Coombsville adds elegance and finesse. This is a DVO that was hard to put down when we tried it with Maya last Autumn (2023), and it has everything in place to cruise along beautifully for another 15+ years with ease.

2021 Andremily, No. 10 Syrah, California 1x75cl

Blend: 93% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, 2% Viognier Vintage production: 900 cases The Andremily Syrah No. 10 2021 is a particularly special and poignant vintage for Jim Binns as it’s the 10th vintage of... Andremily, which began with the No. 1 Syrah 2012. It’s a vintage worthy of such a celebration, boasting a beautifully warm (but never hot) season and dry conditions, resulting in gorgeous small bunches which had time to mature slowly on the vines to add even more complexity. It is a masterpiece that “is going to flirt with perfection at maturity” in the eyes of Jeb Dununck (97-100pts). Jim’s own description is worth the admission alone: “This sultry temptress is sure to please with its soaring aromatics and rich full texture. It must be tasted to be believed.” It’s built around of core of Syrah from a line-up of top sites throughout the Central Coast, including White Hawk (Cat Canyon), Larner (Ballard Canyon), Harrison-Clarke (Ballard Canyon), Kimsey, and Alta Mesa (Santa Barbara County), and Slide Hill - Andremily’s first Estate Vineyard, in Edna Valley.

2021 Unwritten, Signature Series Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Howell Mountain 12x75cl

JD100WI97-99
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 51 cases Las Posadas Vineyards is owned by legendary viticulturist, David Abreu. It sits above the fog line on Howell Mountain at about 600m... elevation, surrounded by a protected forest of fir and pine. Red Aiken soils are layered over white tufa, and the rocks that littered the site before it was planted now form walls defining the property. This unique terrain gives the wine an incredibly seductive bouquet of cassis, blueberries, tobacco and rose petals. Rich, concentrated, full-bodied, and structured, it's a brilliant wine that yearns for a powerful pairing. Fruit for the 2021 was harvested from 27th September to 4th October, and the wine spent 23 months in 100% new French oak (Darnajou and Taransaud), prior to bottling on 21st August, 2023.

2021 Saxum, James Berry, Paso Robles 1x75cl

JD95-97+
Blend: 53% Grenache, 31% Mataro, 6% Syrah, 6% Counoise, 4% Carignan Vintage production: 1,390 cases Saxum's James Berry Vineyard, planted by Justin's father, James Berry Smith, in the 1980s, is... renowned throughout California as a true ‘Grand Cru’, and the James Berry Red 2021 is dominated by Grenache of the highest order. This is a hugely energetic and almost ethereal expression of the vineyard, and looks set to be one of the longest lived vintages to date. NOTES FROM WINEMAKER JUSTIN SMITH: “When we tasted the wines side by side to write these notes (I know, hard life!), Heather and I were struck by how elevated this wine was. Yes, it’s the only Grenache led wine in this Syrah dominated release, but it was just singing! These ‘21s have really snuck up on me. I have to admit that early in their lives I found them a little boring for lack of a better term. I now realize they were just late bloomers and their hidden charms are just now blossoming into something quite magical. They carry a weightlessness while simultaneously jam packed with so much substance. Does that even make sense? Anyways, I love them. I could throw some tasting notes out to you about this wine, but really you just have to taste it to understand what I’m trying to convey. It’s good.”

2019 Saxum, Somnus, Paso Robles 1x75cl

JD96-98
Blend: 33% Petite Sirah, 33% Syrah, 17% Graciano, 13% Touriga Nacional, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 610 cases A brand-new cuvée, we tasted the Somnus 2019 from barrel in 2022 (it was... simply label ‘XC’ for extended cellared), and even at that relatively early stage it was a mind-blowing experience. Our notes read: “Off the charts – this will be incredible!”, which almost feels like an understatement now. Named after the Greek God of Sleep, Somnus slumbered for an almost unheard of 44 months in barrel to tame the insane level of power and intensity, and Justin’s judgement was impeccable as it came together beautifully in time for bottling. For Saxum fans, this is as thrilling as it gets! NOTES FROM WINEMAKER JUSTIN SMITH: “I finally get to introduce you to this new cuvée, Somnus, named after the Roman god of sleep, because this wine gets to sleep an extra year in barrel! 44 months it’s been slumbering away. Back in 2019 we had a couple of amazing lots in our cellar that were so unique, and so incredible, I really wanted to showcase them. The problem was they were also extremely structured. The original plan was to give them the 33 month elevage like Bone Rock and Rocket block, but when it came time to bottle it last year it was still too beastly. Think velvet glove in a iron gauntlet. We tucked it back in and let it sleep another whole year, and when it woke up this time, it blew us all away. It is something unique for sure. Still a beast, but something very special. Something that I believe could only happen here on the Central Coast. It is another wine in this line up that has to be tasted to be believed, but understand, it’s not for the faint of heart. It is Paso.”

2021 Saxum, James Berry Vineyard White, Paso Robles 1x75cl

Blend: 44% Grenache Blanc, 29% Roussanne, 20% Chenin Blanc, 7% Chardonnay Vintage production: 347 cases The James Berry White stands as Saxum’s rarest cuvée and has garnered a cult-flowing among... Saxum aficionados. For us, the Grenache Blanc in Paso Robles is the best in the world, so it goes without saying that Justin’s is going to sit at the top of the tree! Always and eclectic blend, this is a rich and deep wine that shimmers with energy throughout. NOTES FROM WINEMAKER JUSTIN SMITH: “I like to think that we are getting better and better at making this wine, or maybe our Grenache Blanc vines are producing better and better fruit, or maybe its just that ’21 was an exceptional year for whites. Whatever the reasons, I’m really enjoying our one and only white. (News flash, we have planted a couple small blocks of whites up at our new York Mountain planting, but that is 6 years away from any release.) If you have enjoyed our past whites I think you will like this one even better. Brought up in huge 600L demi-muid barrels, with 4 of the 6 being new, it spent a full 22 months on its lees before racking clean and bottling. It is full and rich, yet bright and lively. The magical combo I always look for in a white…actually in any wine really.”

2021 Devil Proof, Farrow Ranch Cima Ladera, Alexander Valley 3x75cl

RP98
Blend: 65% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 580 cases The Farrow Ranch vineyard is a unique and distinctive site with two incredible blocks of terroir worthy of adding to the Devil... Proof portfolio. This special wine is a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, making it's debut in 2021. Winemaker Jesse Katz (Aperture) carefully selected individual vines from these blocks to contribute to this blend. Each vine is hand harvested and brought into the winery within hours of being picked. The clusters are methodically and obsessively sorted down to the individual berry. Each vineyard block is separated and will cold soak for 5 days with minimal air incorporation, allowing for optimal extraction, flowed by cooler fermentations with native yeast. Oxygen and temperature are controlled throughout the 21-day fermentation and extended maceration is determined lot by lot as we walk the fine line of full extraction and elegant, silky textures. The Cima Ladera 2021 went through malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and are aged (sur-lees) for 22 months.

The Mount Veeder AVA is an island of ancient seabed, pushed... up in the formation of the Mayacamas Mountains five million years ago, that is unique to Napa. Acquired in 2000 and know as 'Betty's Vineyard', the vines on this steeply terraced site struggle for nourishment and moisture, consistently producing clusters with small berries and intense flavours. 7 of the 22 hectares are under vine, and it’s one of the most remote and breathtaking vineyards in Napa. It's a stunning yet wild terrain covered with forests of redwood, oak, bay and maple, and incredibly steep slopes making the use of machinery all but impossible. This complex, demanding terroir and cool climate is reflected in the wines, as you can see in all of the reviews.

2019 Ad Vivum, Sleeping Lady Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Yountville 3x75cl

WI98
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 350 cases When a winemaker who played one of the most pivotal roles in raising Napa Valley to World Class status hand picks a single-vineyard for... his own project, you know it's going to be something truly special. As the Founding Winemaker at Dominus Estate (1984 to 1996), Chris Phelps is that person, and the wine in question is his Ad Vivum Cabernet Sauvignon. Chris completed his BS in Enology at the legendary U.C. David in 1981, and immediately headed west to study Viticulture at the University of Bordeaux. After graduating in 1982, he was singled-out by Christian Moueix and enologist Jean-Claude Berrouet, for extensive training at Château Pétrus in Pomerol. Such was his unbelievable talent, Moueix appointed him as Founding Winemaker for his new winery in Napa, Dominus Estate. Over 12 years, Chris produced some historic wines, including the revered Dominus 1990, 1991 (his personal favourite), and 1994 vintages. In 1996 he moved to Caymus Vineyard as winemaker before starting in own consulting business in 2003. June 2007 was the watershed moment when he started his own winery Ad Vivum. Having started working in 2005 with fruit from the cooler-climate Sleeping Lady Vineyard on an experimental basis, Chris was convinced this young site could produce world class wines, and knew this was the future site for Ad Vivum. Since the first vintage, all of Chris's fruit has come from two upper blocks that he feels are the best sites in the vineyard. The resulting Cabernet captures the classic richness and depth of Napa Cabernet while harnessing the cooling influence of the nearby San Pablo Bay to bring energy and refinement.

Since its inaugural release in 2012 this Cabernet has topped the charts for this AVA every vintage, and the 2019 stands to be considered the greatest ever wine from Stags Leap District. As Antonio Galloni says in his 100pt review: “This is quite possibly the greatest wine I have ever tried from here. Dazzling.” Four Corners Wine “Wow! The aromatics are captivating from the outset with notes of pure sandstone and exotic sandal wood, building to a really lifted minerality. So refined and pure with the most incredible elegance, with a delicate perfume of spring flowers and an ethereal layer of wood smoke. The palate too is utterly beguiling, stunning, and gorgeous on all fronts, full of elegance and finesse leading to the most delicious core and juicy, impeccably made tannins. This is a phenomenal wine, as good as it gets, and will be a timeless legend of Napa Valley.” (Sept. 2023)
