5400254001USBold and very woody, this full-bodied wine takes charred oak, pine needle and aromatic cedar aromas through to ripe plum, licorice and black-cherry flavors.

5400354002PortugalThe wine is rich and dense. It has plenty of black fruits although it does suffer from some bitter extraction notes. There is power here, with high toast flavors and a dark, spicy character. The final taste of pepper comes from the high alcohol percentage.Tinto8720DouroRoger Voss@vossrogerMaçanita Vinhos 2012 Tinto Red (Douro)Portuguese RedMaçanita Vinhos

5401354012ArgentinaSpicy, rubbery aromas of plum and berry fruits feature a coating of heavy oak.

5401454013USWhile not overly intense in grapefruit, gooseberry and pea-shoot aromas, the palate brings a bit more frivolity into play, with guava, peach and flint. There's some weight behind this wine, which takes it beyond a simple apéritif.8725VirginiaMonticelloAlexander PeartreeVeritas 2015 Sauvignon Blanc (Monticello)Sauvignon BlancVeritas

5401654015ArgentinaWhile this Cab may be a touch soupy and heavy on the nose, aromas of coffee grounds and berry fruits are good.

5402254021USJust out, this is quite young and tart, tightly wound with green apple and green pear fruit. It's the sort of wine that may well improve considerably with an extra year in bottle. A light touch of cinnamon comes up in the aftertaste.8718OregonWillamette ValleyWillamette ValleyPaul Gregutt@paulgwine Portlandia 2015 Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley)Pinot GrisPortlandia
5402354022USFresh fruit flavors of red apple and raspberry carry the wine into a light, fairly brief finish. The tannins are thin, almost stripped feeling, and there isn't enough weight to make a strong varietal statement.8735OregonApplegate ValleySouthern OregonPaul Gregutt@paulgwine Quady North 2012 Cabernet Franc (Applegate Valley)Cabernet FrancQuady North

5402754026BrazilA stewy nose includes notes of mashed leaves, herbal berry fruits, prune and black tea.
