NAM-1029. 17 RODNEY STRONG SONOMA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Wine & Spirits 92 - BEST BUY: ‛A youthful, structured, savory red, it's hard to believe this wine is priced at $22. (At W&S, we assign scores with no knowledge of prices unless they are $20 or under). We opened this wine on a Thursday and by Saturday, it was still tight and firm, with juicy black-currant flavors and scents of herbs. As of Monday, it felt sumptuous and rich. Paige Dana of Cut in Beverly Hills tasted it that day and described the flavors as ‛a bowl of super-juicy, dark, yummy fruit before it goes overripe.‛ This is not a complex wine with a lot of depth, but it is pretty extraordinary to find such delicious drinking for a third of what you might be asked to pay for a cabernet of equal stature.‛

NAM-1036. 16 RODNEY STRONG ESTATE KNIGHTS VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
2015: Wine & Spirits 91: 'Lean and electric, this is a racy cabernet with rainwater coolness to its cherry-scented fruit. A spark of acidity brings out some green-plum flavor while the wine's light tannins remain in the background, adding savor without getting in the way of its drinkability.

NAM-1043. 13 ROBERT CRAIG AFFINITY NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Parker 93+: 'The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Affinity has an inky purple color that is much more saturated than its two predecessors. This is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc aged 18 months in 80% new French oak. This is a richer style of wine with much greater density, power and intensity. Opaque to the rim with more tannin, extract and muscle, this is more of a long-term proposition, so I'd suggest giving it 2-4 years of bottle age, and drinking it over the following 20 years. $75.'

NAM-1056. 15 SMITH-MADRONE ESTATE SPRING MOUNTAIN CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Tasting Panel 94: 'An exquisite bouquet of lavender, dried violets, and jasmine arises in tandem with sweet black and red fruit. This is a silky and statuesque wine with a fruit-forward bent, but echoes of graphite and chocolate add complexity of character; its freshness and concentration of fruit is perceptible.

NAM-1058. 17 RIDGE ESTATE MONTE BELLO VINEYARD SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Vinous 94-97: ‛This blend of the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Bello comprises about 85% of what will be the final wine. At this early stage, the 2017 is distinctly medium in body, with a compelling interplay between the tannin profile and structural feel of a cold year and the ripe fruit of a warm vintage. That natural contrast is both highly unusual and alluring. Analytically, the 2017 has a level of tannin that is inline with vintages such as 2013 and 1996, but the expression of fruit is much more exotic. The 2017 is embryonic and not fully formed, it also clearly has the potential to develop into a truly special wine.‛

Palate-coating red and blue fruit, mocha and spicecake flavors show very good depth and take on a spicy aspect with aeration.

Vinous 90: 'Bright, full ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate and spices; less expressive and wild than the 2015 version was at the same stage. Concentrated, silky and fine-grained, displaying sexy spice and violet lift to the concentrated dark berry and licorice flavors. I find more sweetness and primary fruit character--and more generosity of texture--than in the 2015 version of this bottling. The long finish hints at chocolatey ripeness but also shows lovely violet lift and a fine dusting of tannins. This needs aeration or a year or two in the cellar to shed its reductive quality.

It will be best consumed after 2026. $25.' Bob Swain drew on two of the Parducci estate's benchland petite blocks planted in 1985 and 1999 near Ukiah, both farmed under biodynamics.

NAM-1360. 17 BLACK STAR FARMS ARCTUROS OLD MISSION PENINSULA GEWURZTRAMINER
Double Gold Medal - Michigan Wine Competition. My notes: Pure, brittle, crystalline varietal clarity. Rose and light glycerol./ Yes, awesomely pomaded, perfumed. Splashy, spicy, peppery, gingery. Oh, boy, balanced by great northern MI acidity too. And gewurztraminer's inherent bitter trace on the finale. Ultra gewurz. 93/100.

NAM-1366. 17 DR. KONSTANTIN FRANK FINGER LAKES GRUNER VELTLINER
2016: Wine & Spirits 91: 'Salty and green, with a scent of lime blossom and a savory suite of flavors that are both floral and leafy, this wine runs parallel to the variety as it's grown in Austria but manages to glance off those attributes…green, but in a different way, angular, but not quite the same angle. Uncork for sweet-pea risotto.'
