This has nice sweet fruit notes, with black cherry, black currant and cedar aromas and flavors matched to dense, grainy tannins and earth and tobacco accents. Pretty overall, with spicy length.

There's a fleshy appeal to the ripe melon and Asian pear flavors, with elegant hints of white flowers and lime zest. Finishes with intensity on the broad, spicy finish.

Fragrant, with a honeysuckle grace note to the sleek pear, apple and lemon zest flavors. Robust and intense, this echoes a spice accent on the long, juicy finish.

Dense and dark, with a savory, beefy core to the wild, juicy blackberry, brambly sage and white pepper flavors, supported by muscular tannins. Plenty of black olive tapenade accents emerge on the long finish.

Sleek and mouthwatering, this harmonious red features creamy tannins and layers of flavor, with black currant pâte de fruit, dried marjoram and smoky mineral notes accented by abundant ground white pepper, star anise and graphite details that play out on the finish.

Dark, minty and fiery on first take, this folds in aromas of licorice and oaky lemon peel along with spicy berry fruit. Firm and tightly built, this is spicy, peppery and chocolaty on a canvas of berry and cassis. Powerful, toasty and a touch hot on the finish.

Bright and fruity with touches of wood, this is a complex wine with good acidity, a crisp texture and a strong mineral strain.

Composed, mossy aromas of fern, black fruits and cedar are more subtle than the palate, which is intense and a bit grating. Dark flavors of chocolate, wild berry and mocha finish with depth, integrated tannins and chocolaty richness.

A seamless, supple expression of Earl Grey tea, plum pudding and huckleberry flavors, with tannins providing some traction on the finish. Vanilla and clove details linger.

Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Calcaire 2014
September 30, 2016 92 Points Wine Spectator

Though the aromas and flavors of dried apricot, papaya and orange peel are rich and ripe in character, this broad white is dry and lip-smacking overall, focused by intense acidity. The pronounced minerality echoes smoke and saline notes, with almond skin and paraffin hints lingering on the finish
