What does Napa stand for? For some, it conjures up images of five-star resorts and world renowned restaurants, but everyone agrees Napa Valley represents the pinnacle of great wines; one of the world's great wine capitals. Napa Cellars embodies the classic Napa Valley style - ripe, rich, balanced and collectible. Most importantly, the wines of Napa Cellars taste of the depth of this great wine region as much as the grapes themselves. In the valley's warm days and cool nights, our vineyards produce seven primary varieties for which Napa Valley has become famous. Try one of our classic wines, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed making them. Read less

Another nose that remains somewhat tight with medicinal cherry, leather, and garrigue aromas framed with a little spice, and a little floral nuance. With a lovely combination of liquory, plump, rich fruit, and a bit a bit of bitterness this fills the mouth that drops off quickly on the backend this is a bit short, but the black berry fruit and plum fruit is just so pretty you can help but seeing this as a fun wine. 89pts

Leathery and a little bit of spice.

From .375 this wine is pretty intense- there's a TON of oak here that is completely absorbed by the fruit, which is incredibly dense and rich. The nose started with a sulphur blast, followed by that sweet oak vanilla thing that I can't stand. Once that blew off, it was all black raspberry. The palate is almost overwhelming now- all texture and robust fruit. excellent with steak. Good now with some air, great in 10-15 years.

Dense ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, underbrush and licorice. Supple and quite suave, with palate-coating dark berry flavors. Spicy and sweet on the finish, with the berry and licorice notes repeating. This fruit bomb will be delicious young.

Blended in roughly equal proportions of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and 80-year-old Cinsault grapes. This wine is rich and concentrated, with aromas of dark fruits, ink and spice. Firm tannins suggest a bit of time in the cellar, but there is enough fruit present to enjoy this now.

The blockbuster 2007 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet, always one of the best bargains from the south, may be the finest Coudoulet ever produced. A blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, and the rest Syrah, Cinsault, and a few other authorized varietals, is incredibly opulent and rich, with sensational notes of black currants, licorice, smoked herbs, and meat juices, a full-bodied mouthfeel, savory tannins, and good acidity as well as length. This outstanding wine can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years.

Produced from vines just outside the boundaries of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The Coudoulet Rouge 2007 is the second wine of the legendary Beaucastel Estate. Full-bodied, with juicy raspberry and slightly bitter black cherry flavors. A little time in the glass opens up this fruit bomb and allows the earthy, peppery spiciness to come forward. Impeccably balanced; you can drink this now or lay it down for a decade.

Ripe but well focused, with a beam of fig and ganache running through the middle, while licorice, mulled spice and incense notes fill in the edges. A tarry hint frames the finish. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Drink now through 2011.

The 2000 Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet is a luscious, richly fruity offering with considerable fat as well as texture. Revealing a dense purple color along with terrific aromatics of licorice and cassis, this full-bodied, low acid effort will no doubt be bottled earlier than usual to preserve its fruit and freshness. Although it will not be long-lived, it will provide delicious drinking for a decade.

Distinctive, traditional Rhône red that excites, with an interesting combination of mineral, wet earth, faded flower petals, black truffle and - surprisingly - red brick aromas. These decadent notes continue in the aftertaste. It's structured, and turns silky in the midpalate from good concentration of fruit. Best from 2003 through 2010.
