Rich berry flavors are complemented by pepper and cassis, followed by waves of elegant tannins. Round, full-fleshed left-bank-inspired Cab blend, with 15% Merlot and small proportions of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. 136 cases made. $38

Round Pond Sauvignon Blanc, 2012, Rutherford, California

15 Oct

044Gorgeously perfumed, the aromatics are vibrant yet delicate, with white peach, apricot, citrus zest and a confectionery meringue. The palate offers mouthwatering flavors of honeydew, lemongrass, and kiwi with an acidic pop that lingers for days. Great by itself on a hot afternoon, even better with tuna tartare. $22
