Peach, pear and pineapple flavors are fresh and juicy in this white, with accents of honeysuckle and fresh ginger that linger on the smooth and refreshing finish

Michel Redde et Fils Pouilly-Fumé La Moynerie 2017
May 31, 2019 91 Points Wine Spectator

Pretty, with a rounded frame but zingy spine, as lemon curd, white peach and white asparagus flavors glide through, backed by a lingering flint note on the finish.

This rich, almost creamy white shows maturing aromas and flavors of wild herbs, butter, spiced apple and lemon cake. Subtle and intense, with lively acidity driving the long, mineral-tinged finish.

This is starting to mellow, with warm ganache, espresso and tobacco notes emerging from the core of well-steeped plum and black currant fruit flavors. A licorice snap detail streaks through on the juicy finish.

Precise and tightly focused, but with a spirited core of minerality wrapped in densely layered cherry, slate and smoky green peppercorn flavors.

A rich, black cherry–flavored red, gaining support from tangy acidity and light tannins. Earth, tar and spice flavors add depth as this cruises to a fine finish.

A broad, powerful red, this features ample cherry and blackberry fruit, shaded by earth and spice notes, backed by a firm structure that leaves a firm edge of tannins on the finish.

A floral aroma introduces this red, with plenty of meaty and Asian spice notes to the decadent roasted plum and dark cherry flavors. Slate and hot stone accents come in on the muscular finish, with hints of baker's chocolate.

This wine bursts with aromas of lime, pineapple, peach and apple, followed by the variety's characteristic green bell pepper and nettle aromas. The palate is viscous but balanced by focused acidity. Less fruity than the nose, the herbal, vegetal nuances get the chance to shine here. It is a classy, even elegant Sauvignon from the bottom of New Zealand's North Island.

This is an approachable drop now, but could happily cellar for another seven to eight years. The fragrant nose offers ripe red cherry, floral, cinnamon, clove, damp earth and a lick of oak spice. Medium bodied, the palate is slippery textured and laced together with savory, grainy tannins.

This rendition is on the mark. A saturated black color and jammy aromas of blackberry, minerals, licorice root and raisin lead to a fleshy palate that's a touch loose in structure, with tannic backing. Toasty oak, herbal blackberry and gamy flavors are complex, while ripe berry and oak flavors offset a minty green note on the finish.

Aromas of cedar, tobacco, blue flower and spiced plum fuse together in this elegantly structured, stunning red. One of Italy's most iconic wines, the smooth, compelling palate delivers flavors of black cherry, cassis, licorice and a hint of wild herb. Taut, polished tannins provide seamless support while fresh acidity lends impeccable balance. A savory saline note lingers on the finish.

Bouvet-Ladubay Saphir 2016
May 01, 2019 92 Points - Best Buy Wine Enthusiast

This fragrant wine is ripe with hazelnut and peach flavors. Crisply textured, the wine is balanced, taut, mineral and still young. Its tightness suggests the aging potential while also hinting at the wine's inherent fruitiness.

May 01, 2019 91 Points Wine Enthusiast

This wine is ripe, full in the mouth and packed with white fruits. Underneath all this richness, a crisp, mineral character gives a great lift of herbal acidity.

Tenuta San Guido Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2017
May 01, 2019 93 Points Wine Enthusiast

Subtle aromas of cedar, cassis, tobacco and a whiff of camphor slowly take shape in the glass. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the tightly knit, elegant palate delivers dried black cherry, red currant, blood orange and licorice while fine-grained tannins provide tight support. It closes on a coffee-bean note.
