92pointsBevela 2011 Matela Le Bon Climat Vineyard Teroldego (Santa Barbara County)

Editors' Choice

A must-get for those attracted to obscure grapes, this cool vintage bottling of a northern Italian variety by Marisa Beverly (assistant winemaker at Au Bon Climat, and Jim Clendenen's niece) shows cranberry, strawberry, dried plum, baked earth and sumac-cinnamon spice on the nose. The palate offers strong loamy minerality right away, then settles into dried sage, peppery spice and tangy but dense dark fruits. Matt Kettmann
