Wine glasses filled with red and white wines

In this column, published about once a quarter, David shares his passion for and expert knowledge of fine wines. In each post he offers several selections that provide great value.

He identifies wines for drinking now, which ones to put away for several years, and those that are worth enjoying now and laying in a supply for future enjoyment.

Enjoy David's Wine Picks, and let us know if there is something you'd like David to review in a future column.

2014 California Pinot Noirs

Pinot Noir has identified itself as a wine that works well in several parts of California. The 2014s have power and elegance with the best vintages since 2004 coming from the appellation of Santa Lucia Highlands.

Here are a few of my personal top price values:

Wine maker & Region..............................................................................Year.....Rating....Price

Testarossa - Santa Lucia - Highlands, Rosella Vineyards..........................2014.......93........$64

Kosta Browne - Santa Lucia Highlands - Rosella Vineyards......................2014.......94.......$90

Arista - Russian River Valley - Longbow.....................................................2014.......94......$60

Roar - Santa Lucia Highlands - Rosella Vineyards.......................................2014.......93.....$64

Testarossa - Santa Lucia Highlands............................................................2014.......90.....$48

Pick up a few of the 2014s and enjoy my favorite wine. You can drink it now or lay it down for a few years for an even better taste experience.

Guide to Ratings, From Wine Spectator:

  • 95 - 100 Classic, a great wine
  • 90 - 94 Outstanding, a wine of superior style and character
  • 85 - 89 Very good wine, with special qualities
