  • 2014 Dr Konstantin Frank Gewurtztraminer
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href=''>2014 Dr Konstantin Frank Gewurtztraminer</a></b></font><br>The 2014 Gewürztraminer is mostly from Seneca Lake terroir. It comes in at seven grams per liter of residual sugar. Showing just a touch of sugar on opening, this youthful Gewurz gets drier as it airs out. Typical and classic, it drinks beautifully. If it lacks that mid-palate concentration and intense finish that some top Alsace Gewürztraminer achieves, you might also note that this is all of $15. It's a nice value, with all of the classic characteristics, including the floral nose, the spice and the lychee nuance. In its youth, you may like it even more than I did.<br> Rating: 89  <a href= >Estimated Cost: $12-$18</a>

  • Michel Rolland rants about the post-Parker world
    <p>Michel Rolland, the consultant wine maker based in Pomerol, really likes the 2015 Bordeaux vintage, which is currently being shown off en primeur in Bordeaux. When a journalist asked him if the vintage was an antidote to “Bordeaux bashing” it set him off. Here is his rant (my translation): “There’s no antidote for stupidity.
