Wine Spectator
95 Points

Piercing aromas of black currant, blackberry, violet and stone are augmented by earth, tobacco and underbrush flavors. A powerful red, with a muscular structure and a long finish. All the elements are there, but this needs time. Sangiovese and Mammolo. Best from 2023 through 2040.

Balifico, Toscana IGT – 2016

Wine Spectator
94 Points

A rich, fluid style, boasting black cherry, black currant, violet and leather flavors. Supple, yet firmly structured, with dense tannins emerging on the long finish. This needs a year or two to come together fully and should age beautifully. Best from 2021 through 2035.

Schramsberg Vineyards
J. Schram Rosé, North Coast – 2011

Wine Enthusiast
97 Points Editors' Choice

This tightly balanced wine is laser-focused yet full-flavored in a way that's very enticing. Vivid acidity binds together extraordinary peach, ginger and baking spice flavors that start out crisp and then blossom on the palate and linger on the finish. Made from 69% Chardonnay and 31% Pinot Noir, it's delicious now but will be even better alter 2025. Editors' Choice.

Reserve, North Coast – 2010

Wine Enthusiast
96 Points

This is an extraordinary wine, both mouth filling in texture and intricate in flavor. A light amber color leads to a profusion of subtle spice and apricot aromas backed by enticing ginger, raspberry and citrus nuances on the palate. The flavors grow richer and deeper with each sip, carried by a very fine bead of effervescence and subtle acidity. Editors' Choice.

This opens with heady scents of honeysuckle and tropical fruit and a whiff of Mediterranean brush. The racy, refreshing palate doles out yellow peach, pineapple and grapefruit alongside a saline note.

Intense soy-sauce and cooked-plum nose that won’t be for everyone, but on the palate this is rich and silky. Good length. Drink now with mature hard cheeses.

Domaine de Beaurenard
Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2017

Vinous
92 Points

Deep bright-rimmed ruby. Deeply perfumed, smoke-accented aromas of cherry liqueur, boysenberry and garrigue are complicated by potpourri and allspice flourishes. Juicy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated red and blue fruit and spice cake flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Supple tannins build slowly on a long, focused finish that leaves floral and spice notes behind.

Vinous

Shimmering violet. Ripe red and blue fruit and floral qualities on the highly perfumed nose. Stains the palate with sweet Chambord and blackberry flavors that take on baking spice, cola and candied lavender nuances as the wine stretches out. Shows wonderful energy as well as depth and finishes impressively long and smooth, with subtle tannins making a late appearance.

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG – 2015

jamessuckling.com
95 Points

The power but also vibrancy of the fruit on the nose is very impressive. Dark plums, incense, tar, dried meat and elderberry compote are out in full force. The soft fruit would be enough in itself, but its enveloped in meaty, chewy tannins that give this imposing structure and form. The finish is long and powerful and the hints of earth give a savory edge to this robust Amarone. Drink from 2023.

Pale orange. Fresh red berries, citrus fruits and a hint of spicy white pepper on the nose and in the mouth. Dry and energetic in style, showing good clarity and repeating florality on a nicely persistent, focused finish.

Montegrilli Nebbiolo Langhe DOC – 2017

Vinous
91 Points

The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Montegrilli is a very pretty wine. The warm, dry vintage has give Cogno's Nebbiolo an extra kick of richness, but without robbing the wine of its personality. Sweet dried cherry, mint, tobacco, crushed flowers and anise all flesh out in an expansive, inviting Nebbiolo that will drink nicely for at least a number of years.

The 2016 Barbera d'Alba Bricco dei Merli is one of the highlights in Elvio Cogno's range of entry-level offerings. Pilant, deep and seductive, with tremendous overall depth, the 2016 is all class. Bright red cherry, plum, rose petal mint and licorice build into the creamy, voluptuous finish. What a gorgeous wine this is.

A pale-pink rosé, this has shades of raspberries, rosehips and rhubarb touching the earthy limestone scent of Champagne. It’s concentrated and lasting, with a clean quinine bitterness that will pair well with sashimi.
