Arceno 'Il Fauno di Arcanum' Toscana, Italy
Readers rated this wine:
A Super Tuscan blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cacernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot it shows bruised strawberries, savoury spices, and iodine aromas which morph into a lean palate with tealeaf, cedar and spice. With age, the fruit has dissipated leaving secondary flavours.
Disappointing compared to previous renditions of this wine.

Brewer~Clifton Chardonnay, Santa Rita Hills, California
Readers rated this wine:
Fleshy, singular, golden.
Harvested from four separate vineyards and matured in neutral oak barrel to add complexity and weight but not oakiness, this is a truly memorable bottle.
It is golden and resinous offering aromas of yellow apples, pineapple chunks, spiced butter, vanilla and acacia flowers. Fleshy and ripe but with excellent acidity to balance--fresh weighty and the finish is nutty and spiced.

Brewer~Clifton Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills, California
Readers rated this wine:
Powerful, supple, fragrant.
A pretty yet powerful Pinot boasting alluring aromas of sunwarmed raspberry, vanilla, anise, cedar chips, muddled blueberries and a field full of violets. Generous sweet blueberry and raspberry flavours are layered with baking spice, bittersweet cocoa and tealeaf flavours. It has suppleness and density, but also levity and length. At 14.5% alcohol, it's a bit warm on the finish, but the fruit here really shines.

Powerful, singular, memorable.
Harvested from four separate vineyards and matured in neutral oak barrel to add complexity and weight but not oakiness, this is a truly memorable bottle.
It is resinous, bordering on opulent with golden apples, honeydew melon, vanilla and acacia flowers, straw and lanolin. Potent and ripe with excellent acidity to balance. A singular powerful wine.

Copain 'Les Voisins' Chardonnay, Anderson Valley, California
Readers rated this wine:
Juicy, slick, creamy.
Flying under the Jackson Family Wines umbrella (Kendall-Jackson et al) this Chardy, was sourced from multiple vineyard locations, the Ferrington Vineyard, which comprises the majority of the fruit, incorporates separate lots crafted from the Robert Young and Wente clones. It was barrel fermented and aged in 98% neutral (French 95%, American 3%) oak; 2% was new French.
Golden fruits and toasted nuts, vanilla, browned butter and baking spice aromas lead to a sensual, creamy palate. Slick and concentrated it tasted of apple butter, warm buttered biscuits and toasty spice, which trails on the finish.
Excellent.
