Ripe and somewhat exotic, offering boysenberry, candied cherry and floral flavors singed by chocolate, coffee and tar notes. The fruit carries the day, trumping the burly tannins and layer of new oak. For fans of the style. Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2028. 6,000 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
A distinctive white, with a lovely interplay between the razor-sharp acidity, salinity and ripe, aromatic flavors of black raspberry puree, macerated peach, almond skin, fresh herb and floral. A concentrated white that stays light on its feet. Will shine with food. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases imported. —Alison Napjus
