Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay
Pioneer Burgundian in the cool Santa Cruz Mountains for 60 years, Mount Eden climbed higher in ‘07. Lush and lemony, tinged with signature hazelnut, this is a rare keeper that will improve for up to 15 years.
Italian and Argentine partners turn the Bordeaux meritage blend upside-down to emphasize local malbec. It‘s big, dark and sophisticated, with cedar and spice behind the berries and cherries. Long finish.
Larressingle Armagnac VSOP
Fie on Cognac. Try a brandy with the character of Gascon musketeers to put extra character into after-dinner savoring. It has smoke and spice, as well as vanilla. If you like this, you’ll love the X.O.
