"US"
"Dusty tannins make for a soft texture in this wine that's subtle in dried fruit, Christmas spice, chocolate and clove. It delivers flavor and complexity without attitude, a savory expression of the grape from a relatively cool climate."

"California"
"Merlot"
112,217
"US"
"Sweet-tart Maraschino cherry and bitter bramble notes meld in this punchy, primary red wine. Cranberry acidity hits the midpalate with a spine tingling force and lingers through a moderately long finish. Drink now."

"New York"
"Pinot Noir"
114,216
"France"
"A lightly orange-colored rosé that is made by macerating the grapes on the skins for 72 hours. The result is a soft wine, very dry while also showing a rounded character that gives richness. Ripe red fruits and a touch of grapefruit are sustained by a mineral texture. Drink now."
92
90
"Champagne"
"Champagne Blend"
37,808
"France"
"A ripe wine that is almost off dry, this has a ripe cherry character, rich in the mouth and with a full texture. The aftertaste brings out spice and tannins. Bordeaux Clairet lies between rosé and red in color and in taste."
85

"Bordeaux"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
31,157
"US"
"Crisp and very floral, this is a beautiful showcase of Anderson Valley's cool climate and commitment to Alsatian varieties. There's a great depth of flavor here—fig, grapefruit, lime and orange peel—not to mention tremendous minerality. This is a wine that can be sipped all day long or enjoyed with fish, poultry or an onion tart."
92

"California"
"Pinot Gris"
85,860
"Italy"
"This bright Riserva Merlot offers chewy cherry flavors followed by elegant notes of spice, tar and cola. The mouthfeel is rich and velvety. Pair this ruby-colored wine with duck confit seasoned with ginger and orange."
90
35
"Veneto"
"Merlot"
70,196
"US"
"The nose on this bottling shows just enough of everything to please all sorts of Chardonnay fans: yellow apple flesh, sea salt, a touch of butter and jasmine-laced honeydew aromas. The palate starts soft and then slowly sizzles with acidity, presenting flavors of butter, lemon rinds and key lime. It's a down-the-middle wine."
91
38
"California"
"Chardonnay"
88,649
"Italy"
"Crisp and refreshing, this lovely sparkler offers sensations of white wild flowers, green apple, citrus and Bartlett pear. Vibrant acidity balances the creamy, elegantly foaming palate and gives it a dry, invigorating finish."
91
26
"Veneto"
"Glera"
52,675
"US"
"This is from a fantastic vineyard site in the Laguna Hills neighborhood of the appellation, and the second vintage of this particular selection from this producer. Generous lemony oak meets toast within a robust body of complex layers and salty caramel."
92
45
"California"
"Chardonnay"
69,926
"France"
"This 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc blend is very fruity and fresh, balancing dry tannins and attractive red fruit flavors. It is light, still tight with its structure. Drink from 2016."
83
10
"Bordeaux"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
9,693
"Spain"
"Begins with muddled, murky, syrupy aromas of caramel and berries. The palate is more high-toned, with lemony accents to tomato, baked fruit and savory flavors. Finishes solid albeit lightly damp and bitter. Comes around with time but always seems a bit murky."
86
13
"Northern Spain"
"Tempranillo"
7,913
"Italy"
"Made with 65% Nebbiolo, 20% Vespolina and 15% Uva Rara, this polished red from Piedmont offers aromas and flavors of dried red cherry, clove, baking spice and rust. It's well balanced, with silky tannins and fresh acidity while a graphite note closes the finish."
90
30
"Piedmont"
"Red Blend"
32,134
"Italy"
"Delicately scented, this inviting sparkler offers light aromas of white and yellow stone fruit along with a whiff of bread crust. The creamy, slightly sweet palate tastes of white peach, candied citrus peel and ripe apple set against a soft, frothy mousse. Bright acidity refreshes the rich flavors while a glazed-almond note graces the close."
88
21
"Veneto"
"Glera"
35,072
"US"
"There's plenty of ripeness in the red plum and cherry on the nose and palate of this everyday Finger Lakes Cab, but it's a little dusty and tired overall, with hints of tomato sauce."
83
23
"New York"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
71,605
"US"
"The chilly vintage has given this wine a toughness of tannins and acids that makes it difficult to appreciate now. And the toasty, sweet oak has not meshed yet with the fruit, which is rich in black currants and cassis liqueur. All signs point to the cellar. Hold until 2018, at least."
90
85
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
38,543
"Italy"
"A firm, classic upstanding wine, with dry, firm fruit tannins that support generous ripe fruit. Aromas of violets and toasty wood are followed on the palate with flavors of herbs and dark chocolate. The finish is concentrated, firmly dry with a good backbone of rich fruit. Age for at least 10 years before drinking."
91
60
"Tuscany"
"Sangiovese"
62,342
"US"
"Sometimes less is more, and sometimes more is more, as in this 68,000-case offering from A to Z. It's a leesy, pretty, highly gulpable wine, loaded with apple, pear and melon fruit. Hints of cucumber and stone add freshness to the lingering aftertaste."
90
15
"Oregon"
"Pinot Gris"
110,219
"France"
"The entry-level wine from Sacha Lichine's Château d'Esclans. It is soft, broad, with more caramel and spice than fruit. It is definitely a food, not an apéritif, wine."
87
20
"Provence"
"Rosé"
48,029
"France"
"The mix of tannic texture, perfumed strawberries and tight acidity in this wine works well. The wine is tight, steely and offers raspberry and red-currant flavors. Drink from the end of 2016."
87
15
"Bordeaux"
"Rosé"
54,696
"US"
"Here's a strong, ripe Cabernet, made in a popular style meant to appeal to fans of fruity colas. It's oaky and slightly sweet in blackberry jam, although it's technically dry. Drink now."
86
20
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
25,183
"US"
"An attractive floral, appley aroma and generous, ripe apple and herb flavors give this medium-bodied wine plenty of personality."
88
10
"California"
"Sauvignon Blanc"
81,931
"US"
"That vintage is not a typo. This 10-year-old wine is as lively as ever. The aromas draw you into the glass, with notes of candy corn, pumpkin spices, candle wax, lemon pith and almond butter—all completely captivating. The palate is lightly creamy in feel but still sleek with zingy tart high-wire acidity and a lingering finish. It's an accomplishment."
92
23
"Washington"
"Chardonnay"
20,961
"US"
"Not a dry table wine, but sweet and dessert-like, although it's not classified as late harvest. Shows apricot, peach, pineapple and honeysuckle flavors set off by crisp acidity."
84
14
"California"
"Riesling"
22,196
"US"
"This opens with a strong scent of herb and bud; it's sharp and aggressively leafy. The wine follows with similar flavors. The light fruit flavors of plum and berry are quickly suffocated with leaf, herb, earth, spice and tannin. Time may be the answer."
85
30
"Oregon"
"Pinot Noir"
84,468
"US"
"Swirls of honey melt into ripe, rich pink grapefruit and peach in this decadently fruity Riesling. Off dry in style, it's lip smackingly sweet-tart, anchored by a zesty streak of tangerine acidity. Drink now–2016."
90
16
"New York"
"Riesling"
17,849
"US"
"This lavishly oaked, opaque Zinfandel sports a dense nose of blackberry with pronounced toasty and menthol shadings. The mouthfeel is full and smooth, there's dark fruit and plenty of espresso, bitter chocolate and tar on the palate and finish, with tannins to lose on the back end. The wine may open up and the fruit ascend more in a year; lovers of heavy toast can eagerly drink it up now."
85
18
"California"
"Zinfandel"
85,998
"Italy"
"A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon, this aromatic white opens with a deeply-floral bouquet of rose, honeysuckle, salvia and white peach. Crisp acidity helps pull it together in the mouth."
88
25
"Northeastern Italy"
"White Blend"
39,713
"Italy"
"Meaty aromas lead on the nose of this hearty wine supported by notes of black cherry, raspberry and espresso. These carry over to the palate along with toasted coffee bean, vanilla and black pepper. It's a tad shy on freshness and still tightly wound with bracing tannins that leave a drying finish."
87
26
"Tuscany"
"Red Blend"
102,451
"US"
"Blended with small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec, this is an austere, unfussy red made in modest quantities that has crisp red currant and cranberry flavors interwoven with cedar and dried herb."
86
36
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
71,582
"Italy"
"Made with air dried grapes, this fruity blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Corvina (a native grape of Veneto, northern Italy) opens with raw notes of cherry, blackberry and exotic spice. It's smooth and rich with a powerful blast of cherry on the close."
88
20
"Veneto"
"Red Blend"
71,114
"US"
"Big and bold, a Chard that shows off its terroir in the crisp, citrusy acidity and clean purity of fruit. The flavors veer toward pineapples and green tropical fruits. Oak plays a very prominent role, perhaps a little too much so, in this dry wine."
86
25
"California"
"Chardonnay"
39,405
"France"
"This Bayle-Carreau wine, one of five fifth-generation family estates, is balanced between the dry core of tannins and the ripe black fruit. With acidity and a fine structure, it has great potential. As it develops the wine will show richness as well as concentration. Drink from 2018."
92
45
"Bordeaux"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
60,506
"US"
"Varietally designated Pinot Noirs are an extreme rarity from this warm region. This one brings notes of cranberry, copper penny and herb, although the aromas not in sync. The flavors are plump and sweet, showing a sense of elegance."
84
35
"Washington"
"Pinot Noir"
77,768
"US"
"An unusual wine with notes of milk chocolate, green olive and arugula. It's light in style and seems hard to put a finger on any particular variety or place."
86
19
"Washington"
"Syrah"
17,201
"US"
"Oaky and smooth, this is already drinking well and is likely near or already at its peak. The Sangiovese fruit is lightly peppery and somewhat insubstantial, but the wine is harmonious and perfectly sound."
86
23
"Washington"
"Sangiovese"
95,332
"US"
"Luscious red cherries and raspberries abound from nose to finish in this buoyantly fruity yet dry, elegantly structured rosé. Made from Cabernet Franc and Lemberger, it's nuanced by faint whiffs of blossom and bramble. Revitalizing acidity makes it temptingly quaffable."
91
16
"New York"
"Rosé"
28,018
"US"
"Powerful, dark syrupy flavors and strong salt and pepper spices vie for attention in this full-bodied wine. It has heady fruit aromas, savory, spicy accents and a lingering finish."
86
20
"California"
"Zinfandel"
13,356
"US"
"A delicious Cab, polished and supple, with ripe black and red currant, raspberry, violet, cedar and mocha flavors. Feels soft and velvety in the mouth. Drink now."
85
20
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
16,635
"US"
"This wine's distinct and intriguing nose pairs cola and cinnamon with cranberry, chopped chaparral scrub and wildfire smoke. That scrubby character of green sage and mugwort extends to the palate, spicing up the beet juice, ripe raspberries and a pencil-lead backbone."
93
64
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
66,775
"Italy"
"Rustic aromas of barnyard, game and overripe fruit follow through to the brawny palate along with powdered sage, violet and a hint of game. Full-bodied but lacking fruit richness, it and ends on a bitter note."
85
62
"Piedmont"
"Nebbiolo"
107,073
"US"
"Pretty threadbare in fruit, with watery pineapple flavors covered with lots of toasty, sweetly caramelized oak. Will satisfy Chardonnay fans who like this sweet style."
83
20
"California"
"Chardonnay"
50,181
"US"
"Tropical fruits, flowers and citrus lead this appetizing Chardonnay from Peconic. On the palate, the wine has some depth, with lemon/grapefruit citrus, pear and apple. A good everyday white."
84
22
"New York"
"Chardonnay"
59,424
"France"
"A dense wine, with black fruits that go in one direction, and tannins that go in another. Maybe this is because it's young. There is some good, ripe acidity and blackberry flavors, so in six months, this may well integrate."
85
15
"Bordeaux"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
85,731
"Italy"
"Dark berry, baking spice, herb, tobacco and a menthol note lead the nose along with a whiff of oak. The linear palate is still all wound up, showing more dark spice than fruit richness. Racy acidity and astringent tannins provide a firm backbone."
89
55
"Piedmont"
"Nebbiolo"
110,840
"Italy"
"Very pretty aromas of rose, violet and perfumed berry lead the nose on this concentrated wine. The juicy palate offers blackberry, black cherry, licorice and white pepper alongside lithe, polished tannins and bright acidity. The succulent finish closes on a mineral note."
92
30
"Sicily & Sardinia"
"Red Blend"
40,436
"Italy"
"A bold blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, this opens with soft and luscious fruit tones of cherry and blackberry jam. Leather and tobacco add a savory, masculine quality, and there's a tart red-fruit flavor that adds a touch of refreshing acidity."
92
56
"Tuscany"
"Red Blend"
85,402
"US"
"This is one of those old-style field blend types of wines, with some other varieties besides Zin. A big, tannic, juicy, fruity wine, potent in jammy blackberry, blueberry, currant, dark unsweetened chocolate, coffee and pepper flavors that cry out for gilled beef, poultry or pork."
89
30
"California"
"Zinfandel"
100,139
"US"
"DuBrul Vineyard is best known for its Bordeaux varieties but Syrah shines there too. Aromas of smoke, brown spices, coffee, herbs and earth lead to a lithe palate that puts a premium on elegance."
90
65
"Washington"
"Syrah"
92,768
"US"
"This is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Aromas of barrel spice, herb and coffee lead to easy-going vanilla and coffee flavors. Barrel notes are dominant but it brings appeal."
87
12
"Washington"
"Red Blend"
83,810
"US"
"A strong black-pepper character on the nose of this bottling by veteran Rick Longoria also works dark elderberries and a woody spice into the aromatic mix. It's tightly wound and very young on the palate, where blackberry paste, black plum and roasted fennel barely peek out. The firm structure will reveal much more spice and fruit in the future. Drink 2018–2034."
93
50
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
14,395
"US"
"A pretty good Cabernet for this everyday price. It's very dry and rich in tannins, with sweet-and-sour flavors of cherries, herbs and mint. Fine for an inexpensive, by-the-glass program."
84
8
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
17,192
"France"
"Firm tannins don't completely hide the bright red berry flavors of this full wine. Red cherries dominate, giving a broad feeling even while the tannic structure is still in charge. Good acidity at the end adds to the sense of aging potential. Drink from 2017."
89
38
"Burgundy"
"Pinot Noir"
30,675
"US"
"Not a lot of stuffing in this Pinot Noir. The raspberry and cherry flavors hit fast and disappear quickly, with a mushroomy finish. But the wine does show a certain flair and elegance."
85
24
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
31,618
"Italy"
"This wine opens with slightly rustic, leafy aromas that blow off in the glass to reveal mature black fruit and spice. The soft palate offers up ripe black cherry, blackberry and cinnamon. It's round and ready so enjoy soon."
89
35
"Tuscany"
"Red Blend"
42,687
"Spain"
"Chunky, earthy lead aromas have a hint of floral raspberry, but the palate is creamy and lactic, with milky cherry and plum flavors followed by a mildly bitter, peppery finish. Fairly solid for the most part, but its burnt and lactic notes don't elevate it."
84
27
"Northern Spain"
"Tempranillo"
93,377
"US"
"Aromas of herbs, tar and plum lead to sweet, plush blue fruit flavors. It's not a particularly serious wine but brings plenty of appeal."
87
19
"Washington"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
10,092
"US"
"Summerland's new crop of Pinot Noirs is quite good, and while this is their least expensive and lightest, it shows their signature. Crisp and silky, its cherry, spice and sandalwood flavors make for nice drinking now."
88
24
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
84,158
"France"
"There is a distinct tannic edge to this 100% Pinot Noir Champagne. It gives a firm character and with spice as well as red fruits and citrus. These elements, not quite integrated, show the wine needs to age further. Drink from 2019."
89
100
"Champagne"
"Pinot Noir"
66,072
"France"
"Citrus fruits shine in this wine that offers attractive acidity along with lemon and crisp apple flavors. Bright, fruity and ready to drink soon, the wine has a nervy texture that will be delicious. Drink from 2017."
87
32
"Burgundy"
"Chardonnay"
69,871
"US"
"A remarkable wine for under $20, well made and varietally defined in cinnamon, white pepper and gamy red fruit."
86
18
"California"
"Syrah"
112,118
"Argentina"
"Gritty, rubbery plum and berry aromas are also a touch smoky. This is solid in mouthfeel, with plum, cherry, spice and mild salty flavors. A dry finish with plenty of woodspice character is a bit hot."
86
9
"Mendoza Province"
"Malbec"
22,924
"France"
"This is a full-bodied rosé, with rich fruit and spice notes. Its ripe apricot and strawberry flavors are lifted by balanced acidity. Drink now."
88
23
"Provence"
"Rosé"
85,694
"US"
"This blends 76% Cabernet Sauvignon with 12% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. Bright and mellow on the palate, it shows black raspberry, cola and brown sugar flavors offset by earthy undertones. The oak is integrated and supportive."
90
65
"California"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
126,972
"US"
"This is almost entirely Syrah, done in a high-acid, citrusy style. Flavors are sharply etched and tight—pomegranate, raspberry, baking chocolate and espresso. Straightforward and well-balanced despite its 15% alcohol."
87
20
"Washington"
"Red Blend"
11,046
"US"
"All five red Bordeaux varieties are represented here, providing velvety tar and raspberry liqueur, remaining bright and fresh in a medium-bodied package. The brightness of acidity remains through the finish, assisted by a lift of cranberry and cassis."
89
38
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
93,645
"US"
"Crisp and clear, this reserve-level white is sweet and salty in equal measure, offering a smooth taste of melon and peach. With a bite of oaky vanilla and a build-up of body, it finishes with a richness of more fruit."
90
28
"California"
"Sauvignon Blanc"
38,093
"Italy"
"This classic Barolo delivers a lovely rose and violet fragrance and rich cherry flavors accompanied by hints of truffle and tobacco leaf. Still tough and tannic, this may soften a bit, but isn't structured for lengthy cellaring."
89
35
"Piedmont"
"Nebbiolo"
40,932
"Argentina"
"Burnt popcorn and some ammonia make the nose fairly harsh. Time softens it a bit as it yields to green-fruit flavors. Finishes dry as a soda cracker, with some Old World touches. Not an easy wine to enjoy; it's very lean and underdeveloped."
82
10
"Mendoza Province"
"Sparkling Blend"
26,609
"Italy"
"This is an interesting and potentially very beautiful wine that probably needs many more years of cellar aging before it is fully formed. At this young stage it shows raw notes of rhubarb, cola and spice backed by dark licorice overtones. It's drying and tight with jackhammer tannins."
89
70
"Piedmont"
"Nebbiolo"
124,445
"US"
"It's impossible to imagine this wine could have existed even five years ago, even though it hails from the extraordinary Nielson Vineyard that for many years has yielded Byron's best Pinot Noirs, as well as Chardonnays. The ripeness level is something only modern techniques could achieve, and the 2007 vintage was great. Ultrarich in blackberries, cherries and dark chocolate, the wine retains a silky texture and is imposingly full-bodied. Drink now–2013."
94
60
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
47,951
"France"
"Crisp and steely, touched by white perfumes and intense acidity, this is a wine with a sharp blade of flavors that cut through the texture. Apples, citrus and kumquat all blend attractively together."
88
13
"Alsace"
"Riesling"
29,124
"Italy"
"Aromas of mature berry, aromatic herb and fragrant iris lead the nose while the ripe palate offers mature black cherry, licorice and pipe tobacco. Firm, velvety tannins provide the framework. Showing the heat of the vintage, the fruit is already evolved so drink this sooner rather than later."
89
45
"Piedmont"
"Nebbiolo"
46,723
"US"
"Highlighted by forward, pretty, cherry-candy flavor, this is an appealing vintage for D2—DeLille's second-label Bordeaux-style blend. Accented with integrated notes of herb, nougat and milk chocolate, this finishes with a streak of minerality that provides a bit of gravitas."
91
40
"Washington"
"Bordeaux-style Red Blend"
83,789
"US"
"Ripe and bright flavors emphasize cherry fruit, deftly highlighted with touches of orange peel and fresh herb. New wood is lightly applied, just a couple of barrels out of 15, and adds a touch of chocolate to the finish."
89
60
"Oregon"
"Pinot Noir"
118,025
"US"
"It seems as if this pure Sangiovese was left to hang as long as possible, and it's got extra color and power. The fruit flavors are edging into a pruney character, with some noticeable heat in the finish."
86
19
"Washington"
"Sangiovese"
88,439
"US"
"This is the winery's first commercial release of this varietal, all aged in neutral French oak. It offers nuanced aromas of spice, tobacco, vanilla and savory notes that are followed by plentiful, palate-coating red and blue-fruit flavors that extend out through a long, fruit and spice-filled finish. Firm tannins provide the structure. It needs time still but possesses a delicious factor that is impossible to ignore."
93
28
"Washington"
"Tempranillo"
124,708
"Portugal"
"From the producer's own vineyards in the Douro, this is a rich wine with plenty of firm tannins and a strongly mineral character. It has juicy red fruits that are balanced by acidity. The structure and dense tannins promise aging. Drink from 2018."
90
16
"Douro"
"Portuguese Red"
56,227
"US"
"This bold and full-bodied wine has vivid smoke and spice aromas, with rich blackberry and espresso flavors. A healthy wrapping of tannins add an appetizing bite and a lingering, lightly spicy finish. Overall, the tasty oak nuances are well blended with the ripe fruit."
91
30
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
74,734
"US"
"A 100% varietal wine from a light-handed producer, this captures a sense of muted, yet juicy red cherry around structured tannins, making for an elegant experience. Integrated oak ensures a layered, medium-bodied wine, with a leathery, coffee-like finish. Cellar through 2020."
90
30
"California"
"Syrah"
42,494
"US"
"Whispers of smoke and flint on the nose of this intensely minerally Sauvignon Blanc blow off to reveal a bright, elegantly balanced wine with hints of fresh green grass and stems. It's brisk and refreshing, with an easy drinking feel."
85
28
"New York"
"Sauvignon Blanc"
18,924
"US"
"Though reserved on the nose at first, this bottling begins to show dense blueberry, coffee and soy with patience. There are boisterous flavors of squeezed elderberry and blackberry fruit once sipped, along with beef char, black coffee, dark chocolate and purple flowers on the finish. This still needs a little time to open, but shows lots of potential."
89
65
"California"
"Cabernet Sauvignon"
561
"US"
"In the big, ripe and saturated school of winemaking, this wine has a deep color, oodles of black cherry and blackberry flavors and full body. It also has enough firm tannin and acidity to keep the structure lively and the finish fresh, so it's a lot of fun to drink and can take on all kinds of rich proteins at dinner."
93
50
"California"
"Pinot Noir"
48,161
"US"
"Light in color, this offers alluring peat, white pepper, herb, earth and raspberry aromas. It dances on the palate, showing elegance and sophistication and bringingplenty of intrigue."
91
45
"Oregon"
"Grenache"
93,818
"Italy"
"This rosé opens with a pretty shade of pink and offers aromas of forest berry, cherry, herbs and a touch of ash or white mineral. There's firm, crisp acidity that really keeps the palate refreshed. Shows loads of cheer and brightness in the mouth."
87
38
"Sicily & Sardinia"
"Rosé"
58,943
"US"
"Cranberries, raspberries and black cherries are in the fruit bowl here, with a hint of wet hay. Still sharp and spicy, it's astringent and offers a light hint of dried tobacco. As with many of the winery's reds, the basic material is excellent, and shows great potential as the vines mature."
88
35
"Oregon"
"Tempranillo"
74,076
"US"
"This famous vineyard supplies the fruit for this excellent, limited selection. Ripe, well-rounded cherry fruit is highlighted with a rich mix of spice, herb and bark. The AVA's characteristic notes of cola and moist earth are there in proportion as well. A fine effort in a difficult vintage."
91
68
"Oregon"
"Pinot Noir"
113,158
"US"
"Tobacco leaf and dried herb dot the landscape of this velvety wine, made from the producer's estate-grown grapes. Blackberry and dusty mocha are girded by bittersweet tannin and toasted oak."

"Half of this year's Poet's Leap Riesling is sourced from The Benches, one quarter from old-vine plantings at Dionysus, and the rest from Yakima's Phil Church vineyard. Marvelous concentration and a panoply of lush orange, apricot, peach and papaya flavors carry this beautifully balanced wine through a long and satisfying finish. Delicious young, it could also be cellared for a decade or longer."

"Earthy and doughy aromas lead to subtle, crisp apple and bright lemon flavors in this very good, go-to wine that has lasting fine-beaded bubbles. It tastes dry and refreshing and feels crisp and lively on the palate."

"With juicy acidity and tart flavors of cranberries and sour-cherry candy, this is a Pinot Noir to drink now. It's dry and a little austere, but rich beef and lamb dishes will coax out the fruit."

"The deep, dark-red color and jammy fruit aromas signal a bold, friendly style that develops in the ripe blackberry, maple and strawberry flavors. It has a rich, soft texture and lingering finish that is almost sweet."

"Gritty, wild aromas of leafy, herbal citrus fruits and compost lead to a foamy palate with solid acidity. Gritty, spicy citrus flavors are slightly bitter, and the wine falls off on the finish."

"Minty, roasted berry aromas open this well-built Cabernet that's packed with plum, raspberry and wood-spice flavors. There's nothing complicated about this lively, oaky wine that runs long on the finish."

"Dark colored and powerful, this is a great expression of the more massive side of Gevrey Chambertin. The wine is dense, dark, with black plum and fig flavors, leavened with attractive juicy acidity. Tannins thread through the acidity. Age for 2–3 years."

"Light and creamy in lemon meringue with a shake of salt, this 100% varietal white has full-flavored intensity and a floral aromatic streak that invites. Dry, it spent time aging in both new French oak and stainless steel, riding both waves with graceful ease."

"This wine shows the rich, exotic flavors of tropical fruits, peaches, green apples and honeysuckle characteristic of Viognier. The finish is dry and crisp, ending with a hint of spice."

"Sporting a big burst of juicy cranberry fruit, this young wine, one of the first Pinots to be released from the 2014 vintage, is easy to like. There's nothing too fussy here, just tangy red fruit set against balanced acids and light tannins."

"Flirts with being too Porty, with superripe currant flavors that are almost raisiny. But it's dry, and the tannins are soft and yielding. Drink now."

"This is a whole different critter than the winery's quaffable '99. It is tart and resiny, with a strong scent of licorice. The rustic flavors are earthy and rough, with a bitter, alcoholic finish."

"A blend of Syrah, Zin and several other Rhône varieties, this is a soft, lusty wine, likeable for its array of ripe, forward fruit flavors. Cherries, blackberries, raspberries and licorice flood the mouth, finishing with a peacock's tail of dusty Asian spices."
