Alsace: The 2015s and Late-Released 2014s

Although the 2014 and 2015 vintages posed distinct challenges for growers and winemakers alike, the former year produced some sleek, delicious, brisk whites (especially Rieslings) while the latter vintage yielded many rich, powerful examples, including some of the best Gewürztraminers in decades.

2015 Banshee Pinot Noir Sonoma County, 90 points

Banshee’s 2015 Pinot Noir (Sonoma County) is gorgeous. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice and leather are front and center. Drink this juicy, exuberant Sonoma Pinot over the next handful of years. (AG)

1993 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rosé

The 1993 Comtes de Champagne Rosé has not changed much since I last tasted it three years ago. Soft, aromatically open and super-expressive, the 1993 possesses exceptional balance and class.
