Millbrook Winery Proprietor’s Special Reserve 2013 Tocai Friulano (SRP $20): I did not expect to find Tocai Friulano in the Hudson Valley, but proprietor John Dyson grew fond of the variety during his travels to Italy, planted some, and has been producing it since 1985. This wine is well-balanced and delightfully fresh with vibrant flavors of juicy pear, melon, orange blossom, and touches of tropical fruit. It is medium-bodied and nicely streamlined, with crisp acidity and a fruity medium-long finish. Overall, this is a wonderful food wine that is also a very enjoyable refresher on its own. Approximately 1060 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Hudson Valley, New York. (Other info: ABV 13%, all stainless, cork enclosure) – www.myvinespot.com

Y. Rousseau Russian River Valley 2012 Tannat (SRP $35): A Russian River Valley grown Tannat is a rare find for me. Winemaker Yannick Rousseau, a native of Gascony (southwest France), has crafted a robust and delicious example. Deep in color, nearly opaque, this wine is firm and focused opening with an impressive concentration of dark berry fruit flavors followed by anise seed, spice, and subtle earthy tones. It is fairly full in body, with well-balanced acidity and firm structure, backed by generous tannins that melt into the lasting finish. This wine opens up nicely with 45 minutes+ decanting and should develop additional complexity with bottle aging. A well-marbled ribeye would be an ideal partner. Yannick’s experience in Madiran shines through in the finished product! Region: Sonoma County, California. (Other info: ABV 13.9%, 5% Merlot 5% Cabernet Sauvignon 1% Syrah added, matured 13 months in 33% new French oak barrels, natural cork enclosure.) – www.myvinespot.com

Paul Blanck Grand Cru Schlossberg 2010 Riesling (SRP $34): This gorgeous wine opens with luscious tropical fruit, citrus blossom, a hint of brine, and honeysuckle flavors that are anchored by a firm acid spine. It combines muscle with elegance and has good length on the finish. Quite delicious now but has the potential to develop in the bottle for years. Region: Alsace, France. (Other info: ABV 13%, matured on lees in large oak barrels for 12 months, bottle aged 2-3 years before release, natural cork enclosure.) – myvinespot.com

Schloss Schönborn Erbacher Macrobrunn 2011 Riesling Kabinett ($20): Inviting aromas and flavors of ripe apple and apricot preserve alongside soft tropical notes with a delicate drizzle of honey. A kiss of sweetness is balanced by a lively acid lift, which extends to the fruit-driven, honeyed finish. Overall, this is a delicious Riesling that offers good depth, plenty of freshness, and a vibrant personality that shines throughout. Region: Rheingau, Germany. (Other info: ABV 9.5%, natural cork enclosure.) – myvinespot.com
