White grapefruit, lime and white pepper aromas introduce this Chardonnay. The mouthwatering palate is lemony, also offering white peach, green apple and tinges of apricot. Lime-laced acidity keeps things juicy, loaded with zippy acidity. FIONA ADAMS
Richly fruity, with concentrated apple tart, dried peach and fig flavors that are broad and well-defined. Lemon drop accents midpalate lead to a fresh finish filled with sage cream accents. Drink now through 2024. — KM
A deep ruby colour immediately gives away to the dark fruit and savoury spices that mark the near-perfect 2016 vintage in Napa Valley. Blackberry and mulling spices lift out of the glass, with hints of black olive and underbrush. Lucious boysenberry and cranberry fruit...
Ripe, tropical fruit notes of kiwi, pear, lemon and wet slate. This is broad and mouth-filling with zippy, acidity and a generous dollop of sweet, toasty oak and crushed almonds. It finishes long with burnt caramel and a vein of minerality.
Great balance and a refreshing bit of restraint make this medium-bodied wine charming and elegant. It will be easy to come back to for all kinds of meals. Vibrant raspberry and red cherry meet light oak spices on a smooth, lightly tannic texture. JIM GORDON
Opening in divine aromatics of orange peel and raspberry, this cool-climate wine shows a length of brightness and fres acidity amidst a full-bodied style and approach. Ample tannin and oak accentuate its earthier heartier side. -Virginie Boone
This full-bodied, robust wine sports toasted oak and browned butter aromas followed by ripe Bosc pear and toasted almonds flavors on a rich, mouthfilling texture. It is big and well balanced, offering lots of flavor along with appetizing structure. -Jim Gordon
This has lots of steeped plum, warm cassis and mulled blackberry flavors that knit together while flashes of anise, sassafras and black tea swirl around. There's a great mineral underpinning on the finish, while the fruit keeps the upper hands. Best from 2022 through 2036. -JM
A light Sanguine hint leads off, quickly followed by ripe and dense raspberry and blackberry compote flavors. Subtle alder and sweet bay leaf notes dart in, ending with a red tea accent on the finish. Drink now through 2029. -JM
