94pointsSer 2017 Wirz Vineyard Cabernet Pfeffer (Cienega Valley)

Editors' Choice

A nearly forgotten grape shines in this bottling by Bonny Doon veteran Nicole Walsh. Light in the glass, earthy aromas of crushed and wet gravel give way to brisk red fruit and pepper. That expression holds true on the palate, where crisp raspberry and cranberry flavors are spiced by cracked pepper and flower petals. The screw top wine is quite ageworthy, maintaining freshness many days after opening. Matt Kettmann
