Vivanco Blanco

Peaches give way to Valencia oranges, then lemon, on the palate. This is crisp and energetic. Drink with fried oysters. Recommended. 89 points.

Gascon Reserve Malbec

Blackberries lead on the palate, followed by chocolate and espresso. This will need a well-marbled New York Strip to allow all the fruit to come through. Recommended. 89 points.

Troon G*S*M

Flat-out juicy, with the sensation of biting into cherries and plums and letting the juice run down your chin. Drink with braised short ribs. Highly Recommended. 92 points.
