“This rich, medium- to full-bodied white is buoyed by vivid acidity, with flavors of kiwifruit, green pear and mandarin orange peel accented by fine details of fresh tarragon, salted almond, lemon curd and honeycomb. Well-meshed, with a pleasing, raw silk–like texture and a long, minerally finish. Pinot Bianco, Friulano and Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030.”

“Merry Edwards has been making Pinot Noir in Sonoma for many years. She has been a beacon of quality and complexity and influenced many winemakers after her. This bottle is a perfect representation of how this winery rolls. It is deep, soft, and heavy while at the same time supple, elegant, and structured. The nose is heady and welcoming with earthy cherry notes. The palate is the gem here. It has a beautiful subtle weight with just the right amount of depth and acidity. The balance of this wine is wonderful. A classic Russian River Pinot Noir.”

“A hidden little gem of a wine, the 2020 Vacqueyras Domaine Des Genêts has ample darker berry fruits as well as some peppery, garrigue, and spicy nuances that develop nicely with time in the glass. It's beautifully balanced, medium-bodied, has outstanding purity, and a great finish. It's perfect for drinking over the coming 7-8 years.”

“Aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries, hints of graphite, wet earth, and lavender. Sandalwood. Full-bodied with an impressive and refined structure that runs deep and vertical in the wine. Chewy. Hints of chocolate and hazelnut at the end. Needs five or six years to soften.”

“Aromas of currants, blackberries, fresh mushrooms and flowers. Medium-bodied with compacted fruit and integrated, fine tannins. Ripe fruit with reserve. Attractive and alluring. Excellent structure. 88% cabernet sauvignon, 7% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Give it at least five years to open and soften, but very attractive now.”
