2012 Luna Beberide Art

2012 Luna Beberide Art

92 points Medium violet with compelling aromas of slate, spiced blueberry, anise, and mint followed by a wisp of smoked jerky, adding allure. With svelte body, a density of flavor persists, followed by unflagging, gravelly tannins. A stimulating experience. Still wound tightly. Drink now—2022+. (MW, December 2016) Price $55 Varietal: Mencía Region: Bierzo, Spain Alcohol: 14%

2012 Avalon Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

2012 Avalon Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

88 points Dense purple with glass staining power. Plush plum declaratively takes center-stage, while a hint of raspberry and graphite linger in the background. Medium-plus in body with medium acidity, and firm, fine-grained tannins. Black cherry and barrel spice on the palate give way to a slightly misaligned finish, with alcohol overstaying its welcome. (MW, December 2016) Price $20 Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon Appellation: Napa Valley Alcohol: 14.5%
