Ripe grapy aromas are more chunky than mammoth. Saturated and muscular on the palate, this tastes of roasted salty blackberry, while the finish is full and meaty in both flavor and texture.

This is a medium-bodied red, supple and immediately approachable, filled with cherries, plums and vanilla and graced with a subtle floral note.

Rich and robust with berry and currant fruit, this wine is rounded and fullbodied, with tannic weight and spicy layers of toasted oak.

This sports rich blackberry and blueberry confiture notes, picking up light chocolate and licorice snap hints through the slightly gutsy finish.

Forward in feel, with warmed blackberry and boysenberry jam flavors laced with singed vanilla bean and mulling spice hints. Delivers a good shot of tobacco at the end.

Dark in profile, offering mulled raisin, cinnamon and toffee notes, but this is relatively fresh and open-knit in feel, with a hint of hazelnut husk adding cut on the finish.

Fun, forward and brimming with blueberry and blackberry cobbler notes, laced with a hint of bramble that keeps this fresh enough, ending with a hint of Black Forest cake.

A light singed alder accent frames a fleshy core of blackberry and blueberry reduction flavors, followed by baker's chocolate and black licorice notes on the finish.

Focused and fresh, with hints of green tea and ginger flittering in the background, while date, toffee, cinnamon and warm fruitcake notes form the core. Stylish finish.

A restrained style, with gently mulled cherry and blackberry fruit flavors that meld into cinnamon, black tea and anise notes. Offers a pretty, lingering wood spice accent.

This sports a plump core of strawberry and red currant notes, flanked with high-pitched rose water and floral accents. A pretty wet stone accent adds refreshing cut on the finish.

This exceptional vineyard, more than 35-years-old, brings a wealth of subtle details to a wine that has both grace and power. There’s truffle, earth, mocha, plum, spice, coffee and on and on it goes, all well integrated already.

If anyone can elevate Oregon’s already excellent Chardonnays to the next level, it’s Jacques Lardière, who makes Résonance for Louis Jadot after four decades at their winery in Burgundy. This nutty toasty chiseled wine has impeccable breeding, power and elegance. White peach, pear and apple fruit is wrapped in lush barrel flavors of caramel, buttered toast and vanilla wafer, with firm acids for a foundation.

Tart and sappy, this compelling wine wraps its bright raspberry and cherry fruit in a veil of citrus and caramel. The various flavors entwine gracefully, with excellent balance and length.

Floral raspberry and loamy mineral aromas open to complex and precise cherry and orange zest flavors that finish with refined but steely tannins.
