Tenuta di Biserno Biserno 2016
February 29, 2020 94 Points Wine Spectator

Black currant, violet, mint, bell pepper, tobacco and spice aromas and flavors permeate this red. Lean and taut, with fine overall balance and plenty of reserve in the tank.

Michele Chiarlo Reyna Barbaresco DOCG 2016
February 29, 2020 92 Points Wine Spectator

Menthol and eucalyptus aromas and flavors mark this intense red, picking up cherry, plum and sweet spice notes as this builds to a lingering finish. Dusty tannins and a cocoa accent line the aftertaste.

Zind-Humbrecht Gewürztraminer Roche Roulée 2017
February 29, 2020 92 Points Wine Spectator

A rich, dry version, with a powerful frame of finely honed acidity and a streak of spicy mineral, this shows a well-meshed range of baked peach and persimmon fruit, lemon thyme and grated ginger flavors. Long and creamy on the mineral-driven finish.

Broad and creamy, this medium-bodied white features a silky palate of baked pear and apricot fruit, orange peel, honeysuckle and blanched almond flavors, backed by sleek, well-knit acidity. Minerally notes of smoke and stone play on the creamy finish.

Tenuta di Biserno Il Pino di Biserno 2017
January 16, 2020 93 Points Wine Spectator

Intense, displaying concentrated dark fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and cassis, with a hint of cedar. Polished, balanced and hard to resist now due to the expressive profile of ripe fruit.

Zind-Humbrecht Zind 2017
January 16, 2020 91 Points Wine Spectator

This mouthwatering, medium-bodied white is rich, featuring juicy nectarine, melon, jasmine, star anise, graphite and slate notes. Finely knit and silky, with a light, refreshing spritz up front that quickly integrates with air.

Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Merlot 2017
January 10, 2020 90 Points VinousMedia.com

The 2017 Merlot is deep, fruity and quite expressive. Black cherry, plum new leather, dried herbs and spice are nicely layered in a deep, resonant Merlot.

Cakebread Cellars Dancing Bear Ranch 2017
January 10, 2020 93 Points VinousMedia.com

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Dancing Bear ranch is a gorgeous Howell Mountain red. Succulent black cherry, plum, licorice, spice, new leather, rose petal and blood orange all run through this deep, resonant, unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon from Cakebread. This is a very pretty wine.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Benchland Select is another expressive wine in this range from Cakebread. Iron, smoke, cedar, tobacco, licorice and sweet spice all shape this attractive, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon.

Louis Jadot Côte d'Or Burgundies Santenay Clos de Malte Blanc 2018
January 09, 2020 90-92 Points VinousMedia.com

It has a light, airy bouquet of wet limestone and fragrant orange blossom scents, more mineral-driven than the Santenay Blanc. The well-balanced palate provides peach, mandarin and light spicy notes on the entry, good focus and a razor-sharp line of acidity.

The palate is taut on the entry, focused and full of energy, offering tangy marmalade and peach notes and veins of passion fruit and star fruit that segue into a spicy, persistent finish.
