Well, its officially Fall Yall, so that means red wine. I wish my sink could do that! According to winemag.com, wine enthusiasts are watching for these to take the lead. Nice price point, nice score!
Domaine Dominique Piron 2015 La Chanaise (Morgon); $20, 92 points. A blend from different parts of the Fleurie appellation, this wine is elegant and floral. Crisp red fruits are sustained by acidity and by a juicy character. As often with this appellation, it is a wine to age and will be better from 2018. Baron Francois Ltd. –Roger Voss
T’Jara 2013 Cabernet Franc (North Fork of Long Island); $25, 91 points. Sweet spice, sage and oregano accent this gorgeously complex, penetrating Cabernet Franc. It’s satisfyingly plump with black fruit, but also brambly, herbaceous, and accented by deep, rich soil notes. Brisk acidity and a fringe of fine-grained, persistent tannins lend tautness and structure to the palate. Drink now through 2023.
