A light and silky white, with refreshing acidity to the soft-textured pear and green apple flavors. A lime hint adds to the finish. Drink now through 2016. 20,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
This is solidly ripe, with plum, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes forming the core, while black licorice and fruitcake details fill in on the finish. Has a good dose of roasted wood for spine, melding nicely with the fruit. Drink now through 2020. 3,750 cases made. —James Molesworth
Big yet deftly balanced, presenting rich blackberry, blueberry and raspberry notes, with toasty and smoky oak, ending with a fistful of chewy tannins. The flavors push past the tannic finish. Should reward short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2023. 258 cases made. —James Laube
