2018 Dr. Loosen Graacher Himmelreich GG

Graach is a small village in the Mosel valley. It’s steep slate slopes produce wines that combine elegance with rustic strength. Grosses Gewächs (GG) is the designation for an estate’s best dry wine from a Grosse Lage (grand cru) vineyard. This limited-production wine was fermented with indigenous yeasts and kept in the barrel, on the full lees, for a year before bottling. The extended maturation time allows the wine to develop greater texture and a deeper natural harmony.

J. Christopher 93 points 2017 Abbey Ridge Pinot Noir (Dundee Hills). This delicious bottle includes fruit from the original 40-year-old vines, which shows through in the delicacy and detail across the palate. Rhubarb, pomegranate, raspberry and cherry fruit flavors are in play, along with a trail of cola and cocoa. Excellent texture and length complete this gulpable charmer. Editors’ Choice. —P.G.
