2014 Bordeaux: It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

After a series of lackluster vintages, Bordeaux comes through with shining colors. The best 2014s offer exquisite aromatics, finely sculpted fruit and polished, silky tannins, all signatures of a late-ripening year. There is little doubt 2014 is the finest Bordeaux vintage since 2010.

2012 Domaine de Montvac Vacqueyras Arabesque, 92 points

Deep ruby. Pungent, smoke-tinged aromas of blackcurrant, cherry compote, licorice and a sexy floral overtone. Expansive and sweet in the mouth, but with zesty acidity giving spine and lift. Long and smooth finish, with subtle tannins coming in late and melding with the wine's plush dark fruit. (JR)

One question that I am often asked is whether Riesling is better dry or sweet? The answer is seldom black or white. This is not to say that it is about shades of grey, but rather that Riesling is one of the few varieties that excels in more than one discipline.
