The June 25th Wine Spectator Insider showcases a late harvest botrytized wine from d’Arenberg and 2012 Shiraz from Jasper Hill.
92 pts d’Arenberg The Noble Wrinkled Riesling 2010
Sweet and lush, with a honeyed range of pear, vanilla and cream flavors, finishing smooth and seductive. Drink now through 2018. H.S.
92 pts Jasper Hill Georgia’s Paddock Shiraz 2012
Spicy, peppery, earthy overtones add interest to the lithe core of black fruit, picking up a gamy note as the finish persists. Has depth and complexity in a harmonious frame. Best from 2016 through 2024.
