Focus on Washington: The New Normal

Washington has experienced an unbroken succession of six very warm to hot years, but by now the state’s most serious growers and winemakers have proven that they can stand the heat. While there are underperformers in Washington, at the level of the better wineries quality has never been higher than it is today.

Arbor full bottle lineup

Arbor, Hong Kong

Over the years, I have got to know Hong Kong well and made many friends within its thriving wine scene. And it’s a wine scene like no other. Weekly mouthwatering dinners, verticals and retrospectives create an almost frenzied atmosphere on libation.

2017 Benito Ferrara Greco di Tufo Terra d'Uva ($23.00) 92

2017 Benito Ferrara Greco di Tufo Terra d'Uva, 92 points

Vivid straw in color, Ferrara’s 2017 Greco di Tufo Terra d'Uva is laced with suggestions of lemon zest, white peach and ripe apricot. Rich and dense, but very nicely delineated, with vibrant, harmonious acidity providing lift on the long, mineral finish, the 2017 has plenty of early appeal. (ID)


Cellar Favorites

Richebourg 1942 vv label

1942 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg “Vigne Originelle Française”

The magical properties of the time-buckling 1942 Richebourg Vigne Originelle Française Non Reconstitutée defy the laws of mature Pinot Noir. Over the course of 90 minutes, the wine gains substance from the ether.
