Boundary Breaks 2012 Single Vineyard Single Clone No. 90 Late Harvest Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $30
Intensely tropical on the nose with notes of honey-glazed mango and peach, this silky sweet wine is stunningly complex yet unabashedly tasty. The palate is unctuous with layers of rich marmalade cut with bright acidity and sprays of blossom and tea leaf that linger endlessly on the finish.  — A.I.  (7/1/2014)

  • Editors' Choice

The No. 110 is another compelling introduction to the Boundary Breaks collection of wines. Smoky mineral and spice tones lend an exotic flair to freshly pressed apple and tea notes in this nervy semi-sweet Riesling. It finishes long with sweet touches of spice and honey struck with lemony acidity.  — A.I.  (3/1/2014)

Boundary Breaks 2011 No. 239 Dry Riesling (Finger Lakes)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $22
Boundary Breaks is an exciting new project from the Finger Lakes, and the No. 239 is one of its best. While ebulliently fruity, almost tropical, on the nose, it’s elegantly dry on the palate with a rich, creamy palate full of ripe grapefruit and peach flavors. Vibrant lemon-lime acidity, it finishes long with a hint of lime-skin pith.  — A.I.  (3/1/2014)

Bouza 2004 Special Barrel Tannat (Uruguay)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $50
They call it Special Barrel, and one sniff tells you that this is a Tannat raised in pricey French oak barrels. And that’s not a criticism; the wine is toasty, with alluring charcoal and smoke aromas. The palate is up to it as well, as it exhibits bright, elevated dark-fruit flavors. Nicely balanced for the most part, with plenty of cassis, berry and plum character.  — M.S.  (11/1/2006)

Boëté 2005 Saunders Vineyard Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon (Carmel Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $36
This single-vineyard Cabernet is softening and mellowing, with flavors of cherry, mocha and oak that are picking up sweet, mushroomy, gamy notes. Carmel Valley is a small appellation in a warm part of inland Monterey County that specializes in Bordeaux red wines. It’s drinking well now.  — S.H.  (3/1/2013)

Brancaia 2002 Sangiovese (Chianti Classico)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $32
Seriously well made, with a few years of cellar potential. The nose is rich and full, displaying molasses, coffee, bacon and cedar. Fine fruit on the palate, especially black plum. Long on the finish, with vanilla, marzipan, espresso and earth notes. Excellent balance, with tannins that show themselves before disappearing into the woodwork.  — W.E.  (4/1/2005)

Brancott 2008 B Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $26
One of Brancott's best Sauvignons in recent memory, the 2008 B is intensely herbal on the nose, featuring green tomatoes and bell pepper, but only mildly vegetal on the palate--well within the bounds of acceptable varietal character. It's on the full-bodied side of the spectrum, with a long, mouth-tingling finish. Try with sole Basquaise.  — J.C.  (7/1/2009)
