94-pts Wilfred Wong | “Pretty amazing stuff, still young at this date, but just beginning to reveal its ultimate potential and star power. On the international stage, the 2009 Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet is a big time player. Loaded with plenty of bold black fruit, yet smart enough to keep it all in check. This wine has it all to go a long time in the cellar. Yet this one is friendly enough to serve now...” | Photo By: Wilfred Wong
92-pts Wilfred Wong | “How about some exploding berries out of the glass? Well, that is precisely what the refreshing and brilliant 2012 Laetitia Brut Rose does when the hood is untwisted and the cork is pulled. Bright cranberries and strawberries are all over this wine as it livens up the palate with a persistent and refined steady stream of effervescence. This may be a great time to have a plate of ikura or some other briney sashimi.” | Photo By: Wilfred Wong
90-pts Wilfred Wong | “So it has come to this! After decades of drinking and savory the excellent Duckhorn Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc as their big play in the white wine world, they bring us Chardonnay...Rich and textured with plenty of core fruit goodness, the 2013 comes up a great balancing of the elements. Yes, oak and they did it so well. This is both a pretty and a serious wine. It may be time for grilled halibut, I believe I do here the dinner bell ringing.” | Photo By: Wilfred Wong
