Herold by Mark Herold | Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 / 750 ml.

Item#: 79055

RP8989 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Oct 2013
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Herold by Mark Herold is a significant step down in quality from the 2010, simply because of the vintage conditions. Although much lighter, it displays a dark ruby/purple color, attractive ripeness, and notions of berry fruit, black raspberries and blueberries, bouquet garni, and earthy notes. Medium-bodied with a good but uninspiring finish, it is a successful wine for the vintage, and is best drunk over the next decade.

Where It's From

District / Napa Valley

View more wines from Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

Region / California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

Country / United States

View more wines from United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.

Bettina Bryant 2011 / 750 ml.

2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 78573

VN92+92+ pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a bit closed in on itself. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, smoke and tobacco emerge over time. Today the 2011 is a bit compact, which is not surprising considering the vintage. With time in the glass, the 2011 starts to find its typical explosive, dark personality, but today some slightly angular contours remain. The blend is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.
RP90+90–92 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st Oct 2013
The 2011 Bettina is a strong effort in this challenging vintage. Notes of licorice, black olives, black and red currants, spicy wood and underbrush are all present in this medium-bodied, fleshy, open-knit, charming wine. Drink it over the next 10–12 years.

Sloan | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82047

VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Dec 2014
The 2011 Sloan Estate has turned out beautifully. Readers will find more of an Old World flavor profile and sense of structure in the 2011, yet all the elements are very nicely balanced. Savory herbs, crushed flowers, lavender, mint and mocha all add lift to the perfumed dark red cherry fruit in this gracious, super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine. The great sites always come through, even in the most difficult of vintages. I remember visiting Sloan Estate during the 2011 harvest and seeing first hand the attention to detail here. It’s no surprise the 2011 has turned out quite nicely.

Asterisk | Napa Valley Red Wine 2011 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82048

VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2013
The 2011 ASTERISK is a drop-dead gorgeous wine, especially for a year that was so challenging. Freshly cut flowers, mint, super-ripe red berries and crushed rocks are totally alive in the glass in a wine that stands out for its energy, vibrancy and delineation. Fine grained tannins support the polished, impeccable finish. The 2011 Asterisk is a bit medium in body by Sloan standards, but it is notable for its balance and class. Sweet tobacco, licorice and savory herbs linger on the intensely aromatic, high-toned finish.
