Editors’ Choice.

This impressive wine is made in larger quantities than many of the producer’s single-vineyard designates, sourced from throughout the appellation. It shines in spritzy, vibrant acidity that supports a medium-bodied frame of lemon zest, kumquat and plenty of length, dotted in touches of nutmeg.

From the producer’s estate vineyard planted on the Olivet Bench, this sublimely textured white is perfumed, zesty and complex. It delights in voluptuous layers of pear and honey in equal measure, showing both sides of deliciousness, fresh and fruity.

Cellar Selection

This fascinating and extremely appetizing wine is very dry, almost steely, with aromas like cinnamon and lime. These are followed by bracing and bone-dry flavors like lemon and Bosc pear with a touch of tannin in the texture, which is unusual for a white wine. Cellar for the mid-term and drink after 2018.

Stony minerality surrounds sublime texture in this full bodied, balanced expression of the appellation’s Middle Reach neighborhood, an area known for producing wines of great beauty and subtle power. Apple, pear and richer characteristics of stone fruit are succulent on the palate, while a racy spiciness intrigues.

This vineyard-designate from a lovely, coastal site imparts flavors and aromas of golden and green apple along with noticeably juicy apricot and peach. Light bodied, it shows an exuberance of fruit alongside notable minerality and a slight hint of sea spray.

From a hillside spot pummeled by coastal influences, this lovely, light wine opens with a confectionary nose of meringue. Lemony acidity provides a lift of bright, focused tension balanced in concentrated stone fruit and spice with a strong oak backbone.

This elegant, medium-bodied wine has fresh lemon and apple flavors, subtle butter and vanilla accents, good supportive acidity and a polished texture. The mouthfeel turns richer with each sip yet the appetizing balance remains.

A new offering from the Sonoma-based producer meant to recall the estate’s original founding in the Napa Valley, this wine sources from across that appellation and impresses right away in its succulent and soft approach to the variety. With a backbone of cassis and vanilla, it’s expansive and lengthy, velvety in texture and very satisfying.

Loaded with cracked pepper aromas and flavors, defined by a balanced structure and boasting accents of ripe cherry and raspberry, plus smoky licorice. Drink now through 2026.—T.F

Powerfully extracted, this needs long exposure to air before the hard edges relent, moving from mineral oil, heat and black tannins to a smoother, softer feel. The texture becomes round and lush, while the mineral notes in the tannins keep it to an elegant line.
