Paso Robles: Taming the Beast

Recent vintages in Paso Robles have been exceptional, quality-wise, but an extended drought has slashed fruit yields between 25% and 50%, resulting in a classic “good news, bad news” situation that is driving producers and wine lovers nuts. Fans of full-throttle wines will find plenty to like from Paso Robles in 2014, although sourcing the wines may prove to be more of a challenge.

Untitled at The Whitney, New York

I didn’t think it was possible, but Executive Chef Michael Anthony and his team outdid themselves with this spectacular dinner. Over the last few months Untitled has become one of my favorite spots in Manhattan.

Vinous Favorites

2014 Pinot Noir Luli ($24.00) 91

2014 Pinot Noir Luli, 91 points

A superb value, Jeff Pisoni’s 2014 Luli offers intense dark berry and floral character, with silky texture and impressive concentration. It’s a lovely wine to drink now but a few more years of bottle age will bring even greater complexity, assuming one can resist its upfront allure. (JR)
