“The 2014 Barbaresco is a beautiful wine.....
..... that encompasses the important qualities that we look for in fine Nebbiolo. Ultimately, this is the kind of vintage that transfers best to the delicate grape. It saw a long growing season (Nebbiolo loves a late harvest) and steep diurnal temperature shifts to lock in the freshness of aromas. The mouthfeel is a bit thinner in texture, but it delivers plenty of beautiful length and endurance instead. It offers crisp tones of cherry fruit with licorice, wet earth and blue flowers. The line of Barbaresco Riserva wines from the various single vineyards will be made in 2014 (and will be released in early 2018).”

“A big, ripe and spicy wine, this is packed with woody notes as well as powerful fruit. It has solid tannins and dark flavors of bitter chocolate and black cherries. It's rich and concentrated, with good aging potential. Drink from 2018.” ($55)

“This is a powerful and rich red with black truffle and blueberry character. Sweet tobacco, too. Full body, tannic and flavorful. Yet open and polished. Fantastic finish. Great ageing potential. Drink or hold.”

A steal of a cab at this price....
"Columbia Crest has had this bottling firing on all cylinders for several vintages in a row, and once again it's a solid value Cabernet. For the money you're not likely to find a more generous Washington cabernet. It shows excellent varietal character with supple tannins and a long, expressive finish."

“Minerally and rich-tasting, with finely crafted flavors of apple, citrus, pear and spice that are supported by fresh acidity. Crunchy dried savory notes power the finish. Drink now through 2021. Smart Buys!” ($20)

"..... deftly balanced and elegant, with a nice complexity....."
"Johnson Family is a value driven private label produced for one of our Fine Wine Distributors by a few their great winemakers from selected vineyard sites in California. In each case, the producer’s have requested that their identity is not disclosed. What we can tell you is that these wines over deliver for their price. They are made utilizing the same exacting standards as much more expensive wine. The proof is in the bottle as you will see when you taste this Pinot Noir.

This is deftly balanced and elegant, with a nice complexity. It finishes with a dash of fruit and ripe flavors with pleasing suppleness. This is an easy-to-enjoy, complex, ready-to-drink style of Pinot Noir."
