Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.0

The Paring’s 2019 Red is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend from the team at Jonata and The Hilt. It soars from the glass with wild flowers, herbs, blood orange and red-fleshed fruit. Elegant and nuanced, the Red is also a tremendous value. $20.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2022) — a month ago

Hahn Winery

SLH Santa Lucia Highlands Estate Grown Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine

Mineral- and spice-accented citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by floral and tarragon suggestions in the 2019 Hahn Chardonnay SLH. Meyer lemon, pear and white peach flavors unfurl and take on a spicy ginger note with air. This finishes tight and long, with a touch of vanilla. $21.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2022) — 2 months ago

Tatomer

Hinter der Mauer Central Coast White Blend 2021

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2021 Hinter der Mauer, 80% Gruner and 20% Riesling, is a white of uncommon depth, especially at its price point. Scents of pear, jasmine, mint and lemon confit lend nuance to a classy, polished wine that overdelivers big time. A long, clean finish rounds things out in style. $18.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2022) — a month ago
