Where It's From

Region / California

View more wines from 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

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.

Ripe and mellow character of dark berries, plum skins, blue flowers and sweet spices. Full-bodied, deep and succulent with powdery tannins and a fruit-forward, supple finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

Another stand out in this set of new releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful and deep, but very much in the mid-weight style that defines the Peirson Meyer wines. Tobacco, cedar, smoke, leather and licorice add savoriness and nuance to this super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. This is an especially bright and elegant style for Kenefick Ranch.

Bond Melbury 2016 / 750 ml.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 92549

VN9898 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2020
The 2016 Melbury is powerful and yet medium in body, with layers of exotic spice, dark red cherry, blood orange, leather, licorice and star anise that give it an exotic character I don’t remember seeing in the past. Despite its mid-weight profile, the Melbury has plenty of supporting structure. Over the last year, the Melbury has gained a bit of weight, but remains quite focused. Sometimes the Melbury suffers by being the first vineyard-designate poured at Bond. Its remarkable allure is evident nonetheless. This is an impressive showing.
RP97+97+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Sep 2019
Overlooking Lake Hennessy up on Pritchard Hill, Melbury vineyard has produced a beautifully elegant and vivacious signature in 2016, which clearly reveals the personality that this incredible site tends to want to give. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Melbury comes bounding out of the glass with expressive black and red currants notes followed by wild blueberries, warm plums, pencil shavings and wild sage plus wafts of lavender and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is practically electric with energetic fruit, framed by firm, grainy tannins and invigorating freshness, finishing long and minerally.
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 16, 2020
Featuring currant and fig notes, this offers a juicy, slightly rounded feel, revealing melted licorice, sweet tobacco and warm gravel accents along the way. Shows most of its muscle on the finish and shuts down a bit in the glass, indicating that cellaring is required. Best from 2022 through 2040. 370 cases made. (James Molesworth)

Darioush Darius II | Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 / 1.5 L.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
2016 / 1.5 L.

Item #: 95202

RP9999 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Oct 2018
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Darius II sparks both hedonistic and cerebral appreciation by exuding profound scents of preserved plums, blackberry compote, blueberry pie, kirsch and warm cassis with suggestions of candied violets, cigar box, Indian spices, fragrant earth, truffles and licorice. Full-bodied, bold and decadently fruited in the mouth, the palate delivers rich black fruit and spicy layers with a firm yet velvety frame and an epically long, earth-laced finish.
JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, November 19, 2018
Big and rich Napa red with layers of soft, lavish tannins and ripe fruit with a dried-berry and cedar undertone. Full body. Flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

Bond St. Eden | Napa Valley Red Wine 2016 / 750 ml.

Napa Valley Red Wine
2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 92550

VN9898 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2020
The 2016 St. Eden is a real powerhouse. In so many vintages St. Eden is a showy, voluptuous wine, but the 2016 is decidedly closed down. There is very clearly tremendous depth and intensity in the glass, along with a good bit of sensuality that starts to appear with a bit of air. The 2016 is vivid and classy, qualities that will become even more apparent over time. Today, though, the 2016 is mostly a wine of potential, and it has tons of that. Of all of the Bond 2016s, the St. Eden appears to be the most affected by bottling.
RP9898 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Sep 2019
The 2016 St. Eden has a deep garnet-purple color and gives up vivacious notes of crushed blackberries, warm plums and cassis plus hints of dried leaves, forest floor, tapenade and truffles with a touch of unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features taut, muscular black and blue fruits, framed by firm, ripe tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long with loads of savory sparks.
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2020
This offers waves of steeped fig and blackberry paste flavors, laced with chocolate, warm tobacco and tar notes. The tarry edge emerges steadily through the tightly knit finish, but this retains good energy despite the dark and hefty profile. Will need time to resolve the grip. Best from 2023 through 2040. 565 cases made. (James Molesworth)
