4353243531ItalyThis simple wine has subdued aromas of black-skinned berry and a whiff of wildflower. The easy, diluted palate offers black cherry alongside soft, fleeting tannins.Cala de' Poeti848TuscanyMorellino di ScansanoKerin O’Keefe@kerinokeefeCastellani 2013 Cala de' Poeti (Morellino di Scansano)Red BlendCastellani
4353343532ArgentinaReduced, jammy aromas of blueberry and bacon turn gritty with airing. This feels heavy, chunky and struggles for balance. Stewy, medicinal blueberry flavors finish sticky, with a mix of green, candied berry and caramel notes.Phebus Reserva8416Mendoza ProvinceMendozaMichael Schachner@wineschachFabre Montmayou 2012 Phebus Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza)Cabernet SauvignonFabre Montmayou
4353443533FranceThis is a basic Chablis, soft and fruity. Apples and pear skin flavors have a burst of acidity, a light mineral texture and a juicy aftertaste. It is ready to drink.8426BurgundyChablisRoger Voss@vossrogerLouis Jadot 2013 ChablisChardonnayLouis Jadot
4353543534USMusky, herbaceous tones juxtapose against candied fruit flavors in this dry, sprightly wine. It's peachy, forward and simple, but fun for its carefree, flirtatious nature.8411New YorkNew YorkNew York OtherAnna Lee C. IijimaMerritt NV Seyval Blanc (New York)Seyval BlancMerritt
4353643535USWith aromas like Bartlett pears and butter cookies, and rich flavors that almost turn sweet, this is a full-bodied, soft-textured confection. The crispness factor is rather low to support that richness fully.8416CaliforniaCaliforniaCalifornia OtherJim Gordon@gordone_cellarsBaron Cooper 2013 Chardonnay (California)ChardonnayBaron Cooper
4353743536FranceShowing acidity and a structured, dry character, this is a lean wine. Its tannins are dominant, along with vivid red currants and and an austere texture. Drink from 2017.8440BurgundyChassagne-MontrachetRoger Voss@vossrogerChâteau de Chassagne-Montrachet 2011 Chassagne-MontrachetPinot NoirChâteau de Chassagne-Montrachet
4353843537FranceHerbal aromas give a grassy wine that is textured and tangy. This seems to miss out on real fruitiness, although the final acidity is attractive.Cabaret8414ProvenceCôtes de ProvenceRoger Voss@vossrogerChâteau Maupague 2014 Cabaret Rosé (Côtes de Provence)RoséChâteau Maupague
4353943538FranceRipe, very soft and missing out on zesty freshness, this wine is full-bodied and on the heavy side. It does have attractive strawberry fruitiness and some acidity that comes through at the end.8416ProvenceCôtes de ProvenceRoger Voss@vossrogerPure Provence 2014 Rosé (Côtes de Provence)RoséPure Provence
4354043539ItalyThis simple white isn't very expressive, but the palate eventually reveals unripe yellow apple and green pear. It's diluted, with a short finish.8412Central ItalyTrebbiano d'AbruzzoKerin O’Keefe@kerinokeefeSan Lorenzo Vini 2014 Trebbiano d'AbruzzoTrebbianoSan Lorenzo Vini
4354143540ArgentinaThis is a rough, leathery and stalky Cabernet. Horseradish and leather aromas set up a lightly green, herbal and peppery flavor profile. While the wine feels pretty good, there's no escaping its green-leaning, stalky character.Reserva de Familia8434Mendoza ProvinceMendozaMichael Schachner@wineschachSottano 2010 Reserva de Familia Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza)Cabernet SauvignonSottano
4354243541USSour cherry and underripe watermelon show on the nose and palate. A 15% addition of Merlot gives a slight impression of weight to this otherwise light-bodied sipper.Rosato di8420VirginiaVirginiaAlexander PeartreeIngleside 2014 Rosato di Sangiovese (Virginia)SangioveseIngleside
4354343542FranceThis herbal wine offers green fruits as well as red berries. Plenty of fresh acidity brightens the mineral texture along with a crisp aftertaste. Perhaps less of the freshness would have been an advantage.Les Papilles8416ProvenceCôtes de ProvenceRoger Voss@vossrogerLes Vignobles Gueissard 2014 Les Papilles Rosé (Côtes de Provence)RoséLes Vignobles Gueissard
4354443543USSharp red cherries, a touch of cola and a wisp of forest floor comprise the nose of this affordable bottling. Cranberry skins, orange peels and pine sap sourness prevail on the palate.8411CaliforniaCentral CoastCentral CoastMatt Kettmann@mattkettmannCupcake 2012 Pinot Noir (Central Coast)Pinot NoirCupcake
4354543544FranceThis is a stalky, tight and dry wine. Maybe that's because it's young, but the fruit is way behind the dry, tannic and tough exterior. It's hard to see this softening enough.Cuvée de l'Aubigue8415ProvenceCôtes de ProvenceRoger Voss@vossrogerDomaine les Fouques 2012 Cuvée de l'Aubigue Red (Côtes de Provence)Red BlendDomaine les Fouques

4355043549ArgentinaThis is a heavily oaked brew of 50% Viognier, 40% Chardonnay and 10% Riesling. The nose is woody to the max, with herbal notes of parsley and white flowers. A full, heavy, resiny palate is home to barrel-driven flavors of spice and clouded white fruits. On the finish, this tastes mostly of wood and resin.Gala 3 Viognier-Chardonnay-Riesling8420Mendoza ProvinceMendozaMichael Schachner@wineschachLuigi Bosca 2013 Gala 3 Viognier-Chardonnay-Riesling White (Mendoza)White BlendLuigi Bosca
4355143550FranceLight and bright, this fruity wine has a more bitter element that gives a sharper character that will hopefully round out. At the back, plenty of acidity leaves a crisp aftertaste.8425BurgundyMâcon-VillagesRoger Voss@vossrogerDomaine Saumaize-Michelin 2013 Mâcon-VillagesChardonnayDomaine Saumaize-Michelin

4355543554FranceDried raspberry, strawberry and cherry aromas flesh out the bouquet of this rosé. The medium-weight mouthfeel is ripe and round, with soft lift from the light acidity.
