Wine Reviews

Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

A classic style of Napa Cabernet. I really love the cardamom, black olive, and eucalyptus notes here. Medium-bodied and restrained, this works very well with grilled beef tenderloin and caramelized Brussel sprouts.

Rating: 92 Points

Bersano “Nirvasco” Barolo

The tension between the flinty acidity and the raw tannins is delightful. The flavors are captivating, like smoking a cigar next to a burning rosebush. An age-worthy bottle that would make any wine collector smile.

Rating: 92 Points

Chateau Hyot Castillon Castillion

The Côtes de Castillon region of Bordeaux is an underappreciated region just east of Saint-Émilion. Cedar and cherry on the nose and flavors of black cherry and Asian five-spice. A full-bodied and fruit-forward bottling.

Rating: 90 Points

Bovale Bobal, Utiel Requena

This is one of those wines that are both exotic and eminently drinkable. Big jammy black fruit and a touch of smoked vanilla, this is a bottle that Zin and Petit Sirah drinkers should love. The tannins are so soft and plush it’s like drinking happiness itself.

Domaine Vetriccie White, Corsica

Is it blasphemous that I want to serve this French white wine at the Feast of the Seven Fishes? After all, it is an Italian island, even if it has been a French territory for a few centuries—vibrant flavors of clementine and peach. There is a fantastic note of seashore in here as well.
