This six bottle collection includes two bottles each of the following wines:

Dalla Valle Proprietary Red Napa Maya 2016 - 100 RP
“The 2016 Maya Proprietary Red Wine is blended of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple colored, it's a little reserved to begin, soon unfurling to reveal the most incredible array of floral and red fruit layers—kirsch, redcurrant jelly, black raspberries, lilacs, red roses and lavender—with achingly beautiful wafts of cigar box, pencil lead, camphor, cinnamon stick and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and with fabulous elegance and poise in the mouth, the palate delivers layer upon layer of perfumed black and red fruits with a very firm, finely grained texture and an epically long, mineral-laced finish. Give this knock-out beauty another 5 years in the cellar and drink it over the next 30+.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele 2010 - 100 CWA
“The Araujo Eisele 2010 has become a truly ravishing wine, benefiting immensely from a few years of cellar time. Built like a thoroughbred, this Cabernet blend is a remarkable experience now and will continue to delight for another decade. Intense notes of voluptuous dark fruit are deftly balanced by plush tannins and perfectly integrated oak. The majestic finish lasts a full minute now with tantalizing notes of espresso, truffles, and exotic herbs. This is one of the finest Napa reds we’ve sampled!” - California Wine Advisors 

Spottswoode Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2016 - 100 RP
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is still very tight and youthful, slowly unfurling to reveal a multifaceted wine with tons of black, blue and red fruit sparks—plums, cherries, black currants and red currants—with dark chocolate, cedar chest, black tea and red roses in the background plus wafts of pencil lead and prosciutto. Medium-bodied and firmly textured by superbly ripe, grainy tannins, it has a fantastic core of intense, complex layers, finishing on an edifying mineral note. Wow!” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
