Château La Nerthe Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2016
December 31, 2019 92 Points Wine Enthusiast

Blackberry and black-cherry flavors are opulent in this rich, ample-bodied wine. It's intensely fleshy in fruit character but muted by hints of earth and savory spice as well as a whisper of violet.

This is a luscious, creamy wine that's full of rich black-cherry and berry flavors edged by piquant hits of anise and black pepper. A concentrated wine structured by firm, taut tannins, it maintains lively freshness on the midpalate.

A beautifully juicy wine, packed with firm tannins and with great black fruits already in balance. The wine has style, never hinting too much at power, but instead going for complexity.

The wine's fine perfumed black plum fruits give a wonderful jammy character while bringing out a fresh edge. These are balanced by the dry core of this beautiful wine with its rich, generous tannins.

The wine's fruitiness is impressive. Generous black fruits show well against the background of major tannins and a solid, dry structure.

Taylor Fladgate Classic Vintage Porto 2017
December 31, 2019 97 Points Wine Enthusiast

The structure is currently very dominant in this wine. Its dark tannins are concentrated, waiting for the masked black fruits to come through.

Campo al Mare Bolgheri DOC 2017
December 31, 2019 92 Points Wine Spectator

Aromas of Mediterranean wild herbs accent the blackberry and black cherry flavors in this rich red. Mellow, with hints of tobacco and iron emerging as this winds down on the finish.

Rich and juicy, sporting plum, black currant, leather, earth, wild herb and iron aromas and flavors. A solid layer of tannins offers support, while the spicy finish kicks into overdrive. Shows fine varietal character, balance and length.

Opulent and densely structured, this red is monolithic today. Offers ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum fruit, with wild herb, tobacco and spice notes. The finish is compact and dusty.

December 31, 2019 90 Points Wine Enthusiast

The Beaune negociant house has produced a ripe and structured wine. It offers plenty of black-cherry flavors from the ripe Gamay as well as acidity and a touch of tannins.

Taittinger Prestige Rosé N/V
December 15, 2019 92 Points Wine Spectator

Dried and macerated raspberry and cherry fruit flavors are accented by a thread of aromatic spice, smoke-tinged toasted brioche notes and chalky mineral scents in this fresh and focused rosé, with a fine, satiny mousse.

It has a firm vertical palate with very fine tannins, a subtle mix of herbs and spices and lots of dark fruit waiting to come out. Long and concentrated finish. An elegant expression of the terroir.

This is a magnificent, opulent wine, with rich tannins and equally rich black fruits. While it has plenty of ripeness that gives it a generous character, it never wavers in its firm structure. It will have an immensely long, impressive life.

Julianne Laks blends this wine from two western benchland sites, one in Rutherford, the other in Oakville. Its time in French oak barrels, most of them new, shows in the rich notes of espresso-roast coffee that dominate the wine for its first two days open.

Michele Chiarlo Cerequio Barolo DOCG 2015
December 01, 2019 91 Points Wine & Spirits

This wine aged in tonneaux for two years, gaining notes of sweet spice and toasted vanilla that enrich the warm strawberry and cherry flavors. It feels plush and ripe, ready for a rich braised lamb shoulder.

There's a pleasing viscosity to this elegant Champagne, with sleek acidity creating a mouthwatering frame for the flavors of wild cherry, toast point, preserved lemon and honeycomb. Offers a lingering, creamy finish.
