Single Vineyard Chardonnay

2015 Argentina Mendoza
92 Points

Woody aromas of apple and pear are what a quality Chardonnay should smell like. From one of Mendoza's coolest spots (San Pablo), this is a fleshy, well-built wine with a mix of baked apple, popcorn and woody flavors. A slight hint of white truffle and oxidation on the finish suggests that this at peak or just slightly past it. Drink now.

Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo

2014 Italy Tuscany
91 Points

The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is a very good wine, especially within the context of the vintage. Not surprisingly, the 2014 is a bit youthfully austere today, but it makes up for that with fine persistence. Expressive floral and savory overtones add perfume to the dark red stone fruit flavors. Give the 2014 another 6-12 months in bottle to allow the tannins to soften further.

Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo

2014 Italy Tuscany
90 Points

The 2014 Chianti Classico Riserva Ser Lapo is a lovely wine that does a great job with the presumably reduced fruit selection available in this challenging vintage. This is a single-vineyard blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. The wine shows red fruit, spice, tobacco and dried cherry over a smooth and silky mouthfeel. It would make a fitting companion to fire-grilled T-bone steak.
