Star bright straw gold. Abundant and inviting nose of honeysuckle and honeyed citron. Medium light palate yields layers of orange rind, honeysuckle, dried quince, white pepper (especially on the finish), lime cream, and a host of others. All that flavor added to the medium plus acidity makes for a premier white wine for fine dining. Sturdy enough for medium cheeses or roasted poultry/pork, but with enough finesse for seafood, salads, and lighter fare. Want to experience the upper echelons of white wine without breaking $100?

We are celebrating a 21 year old and someone who is . . .uh, older (me!). Pulled out this Italian red to complement homemade lasagna and our family dish called Italian delight. Decanted for over an hour. Modest spice, tobacco, cherry, dry blackberry, and has a slight burn - which sounds bad but it is actually a great finish on this wine. Light red and purple colors that give a slight reminder of a Pinot but tastes much heavier. Loved having this along with a great Bordeaux tonight!! — a month ago
Radiant orange tint on garnet. Meaty with plum and fig, raspberry with pipe tobacco and pine tar with a sweet burnt rye aspect. There are subtle strawberries and black cherry, blood orange flambè, and dried violet on the nose. Dried raspberry and blackberry, cranberry tannin combo, wolf berry, red currant and smoke. Delicious with Bresaola!! .

Outstanding Palmer from a tough vintage. Consistently one of my favorite producers, this Margaux delivers all the goods - perfume of plum and violets. The palate is plush and classic Margaux - graphite, cassis, violets and excellent structure and acidity in balance. Maybe doesn’t have the silky tannins of prime Palmer vintages, but is far more affordable. Just entering it’s prime drinking window now. Happy Friday all — a month ago
