The 2018 Carl Roy Stag’s Leap District is a wine that was never supposed to be poured anywhere but the finest steakhouses from SF to NYC. But that all changed in March. Even so, when I got the call asking if I would like this Stag’s Leap Cuvée from Carl Roy, I thought it was a mistake. From the most storied AVA of Napa and somehow just $35/btl? Hurry because this one won’t last!
Drawn from two choice spots in the Columbia Valley where Washington’s high desert land meets the Columbia River – the 2018 Cascade Heights is a juicy, inky purple, full-bodied Cabernet. Despite the bright tannins that argue for a successful drinking window of over 10+ years, this big, juicy cab is drinking excellent right now. The ‘X’ factor though is the price. At just $15/btl on bottle 1, this is unrivaled value territory.

It’s rich, yet elegant with refined tannins and a long seamless finish. Meant to be drunk young, you could also tuck a bottle or two away for up to 10 years. This is a full-bodied super-tuscan that delights on the nose with aromas of black and blue berries accented with a bit spice (cinnamon/anise) and a hint of vanilla from the percentage of new oak barrels.
If you haven’t yet had any of the wines from Castello di Volpaia, you are missing out big time. This one, their most affordable is their bid for Nicholas the ultimate Super Tuscan Bargain of the Year. A predominantly Sangiovese blend that also features Cabernet, the “Citto” is made in 100% stainless steal vats to properly showcase the intense and vibrant youthful fruit. The perfect compliment to pizza, this is one to drink now while it’s fresh, silky and oh so juicy.
Get in quick before the scores! One of the most beloved brands in American wine has graciously allocated us another ten cases of their explosive 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is absolutely killer. In the textbook 2018 vintage in Napa, where sunny days were a staple from April to October, the Wagner Family crafted a big, powerful Cab with a dark ruby color, with ripe red fruits and silky smooth tannins.
Chad’s latest release is the 2018 Napa Valley Proprietary Red Wine. This Cabernet-based blend, a rich, teeth-staining wine, delivers way more power, fruit and finish than any other $25 Napa Valley red that I have tasted all year. It features aromas and flavors of black currant, plum, mocha and cigar box, leading to a packed middle core of black fruit. The ’18 Chad Prop Red displays the concentration and length generally found in bottles twice its price (that’s because what’s in the bottle IS twice the price!).

As much as customer’s raved about last year’s Double Canyon, the 2016 blows it away. The 2016 Horse Hills comes roaring right out of the gates. On the attack, the wine offers intricately woven youthful tannins that give the wine a delicious and slightly chewy taste with beautiful bright red fruit. A ‘Best Buy’ designate from Wine & Spirits Magazine and a matching score courtesy of Decanter who called out the wine’s “wonderful, bright cassis fruit” and “velvety, soft tannins”.

Don’t let the price tag fool you. The 2018 Fabre-Montmayou Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely gorgeous. Purple/black in hue. The nose is California-like, filled with black fruits, cassis, both hedonistic and refined, the tell-tale marker for old-vine sourcing. Ripe and long, it drinks like wine that is twice its price, a quintessential Nicholas Wines Tuesday nighter. Drink all summer long with grilled burgers and steaks or just by itself, it’s a delicious glass of wine
In the excellent 2016 vintage in Napa, winemaker Kian Tavakoli (Opus One, Clos du Val) had little work to do. With ideal weather conditions throughout harvest, clusters came in dark and juicy from both the Coombsville and Rutherford Vineyards where this delicious Napa Valley Cab was crafted from. Deep ruby to the rim with excellent concentration, notes of Bing cherries, raspberry pie and hints of vanilla. On the palate, big wonderfully jammy fruit with young but impressive tannins and great length. The finish leaves notes of black cherry, and baked blueberry pie. This is a steal for the price.
The Gravelly Loam cuveé comes from two well-placed sources on the eastern valley floor that has the porous, gravelly soil that is home to some of the greatest Cabs in Napa. Roots dig deep in the poor soil, drawing mineral groundwater for fresh, vibrant grapes. The vineyards’ position on the valley floor guarantees excellent sun exposure providing for superb concentration. The result is knocked-out Cabernet, loaded with juicy black fruit and a finish that lasts a minute.
A Restaurant Nicholas customer favorite! Seamlessly woven in black cherry and cocoa, Frank Family Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 is sumptuous and seductive in structure and complexity. The palate offers flavors of hazelnut, baked plum, and cloves while brilliant acidity on the finish balances the concentration of flavors and tannins.
A super approachable, fruit forward Cab with rich dark fruits, a hint of cocoa with a dash of herbs and spices. Clean and impressive length and depth add to this wine that finishes fresh and bright, a great sign of a Cab that is made to drink now, and drink often. This one is a case buy for sure.
