Vinous Favorites

2016 Bishop’s Peak Pinot Noir - San Luis Obispo County ($24.00) 91

2016 Bishop’s Peak Pinot Noir - San Luis Obispo County, 91 points

The 2016 Pinot Noir from Bishop’s Peak, Brian Talley’s entry-level range, delivers the goods for a great price. From a superb vintage, it’s balanced and energetic, deftly playing ripeness off of finesse and showing pure red fruit and floral character, seamless texture and spicy persistence. (JR)


Cellar Favorites


1945, 1966 & 1982 Gruaud Larose

I recently participated in two tastings connected with one of the most famous dynasties in Bordeaux: the Cordier family. Amongst Cordier’s acquisitions is Gruaud Larose, which came into their hands in 1917 and 1935, since back then, the estate was divided.
