Wine Reviews

169 recommended wines from 8 countries, including 15 delicious sparkling wines; the best ’98 California Chardonnay we have tasted; 14 high end California Cabernets; and 6 excellent 1998 Pinot Noirs from California. There are plenty of imported discoveries as well: 6 higher priced Argentinean reds (that will certainly alter your opinion of Argentina’s ultimate potential); 23 of the best new releases from Australia; exceptional French wines (Chablis, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Anjou Rouge, Pouilly-Fume); 21 German Rieslings from the excellent 1999 vintage; 18 exemplary Italian red wines, from Sicily to Tuscany; and exceptional Sauvignon Blancs and Pinot Noirs from New Zealand.
