(N0501-101) 14 AIRFIELD ESTATES YAKIMA VALLEY RED  $17.99

Wine Enthusiast 90: ‘This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (56%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc (10%), Malbec (4%) and Petit Verdot. Aromas of freshly hewn wood, cherry and herb are followed by plentiful black fruits that linger on the finish. The oak plays prominently at times but it works.'

(N0501-103) 13 DUCKHORN NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $69.95
U.S. Newly Available 05/01
Wine & Spirits 95: ‘The top cabernets from 2013 continue to develop well—this relatively late release from Duckhorn has benefitted from its time in bottle, feeling vibrant, with a dynamic interplay of tart cherry flavors and brisk, refreshing tannins. Renee Ary, who was promoted to lead winemaker at Duckhorn in 2014, blended this wine from estate-grown cabernet and purchased fruit; 45 percent of the lot aged in new French oak barrels, adding to the savory black-olive richness of the tannins, while the purple fruit drives past any direct impression of oak. Instead, there's a sense of cherry bark, a fruitwood aroma, or a woodland mushroom fruitiness. That integration allows the wine to present its energy unfettered, revealing a mouthwatering Napa Valley cabernet that's ready to decant and set to develop further in the cellar. $72.'

(N0508-105) 13 STAG'S LEAP WINE CELLARS CASK 23 STAGS LEAP DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON  $269.95
U.S. Newly Available 05/08
Wine & Spirits 96: ‘Marcus Notaro came to SLWC from Col Solare in Washington State. He blended the 2012s and worked on the 2013s with Kirk Grace, who manages the two estate vineyards-S.L.V. and Fay-that come together in Cask 23. Fay is an alluvial wash on the valley floor below the Stags Leap escarpment, with some blocks higher up the hillside, where the soils share more of the volcanic rock of S.L.V., a less fertile and faster draining colluvial mix fallen down from the hills above. Notaro uses those upper blocks of Fay and S.L.V. to build structure in Cask 23, as well as selections from vines on the lower, silty soils that offer a lighter, more fragrant cabernet. What's remarkable about this 2013 is how those elements combine in a wine with the textural richness and polish of great Stags Leap District cabernet and then expand into fragrance. It's a wine with forward motion, what senior editor Luke Sykora described as ‘a torrent of fruit in the middle, propulsive fruit that pushes the oak to the side.' The lasting impression is savory and bright, a wine that looks up to the future, one that will live long among the greats of the 2013 vintage in Napa Valley.'
