How do you pick a favorite? The oldest vines in the cellar produced the most compelling wine in the cellar. Aromatically almost naughty -- it just smells so good! Rosemary blossom shades mouthwatering crushed raspberry, all woven together with Temperance Hill's signature indescribable complexity. Wonderfully elegant while also superbly dense, it is this tension that makes this wine, Walter Scott, and Pinot noir shine. Only 125 cases made, of which 15 are available. - Marcus & Andy

95 points Vinous:"Suave, smoke-accented aromas of raspberry preserves, pungent flowers, incense and cola, along with a hint of allspice in the background. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense red berry, allspice and floral pastille flavors that are sharpened by a jolt of zesty acidity. Shows superb clarity and spicy bite on a long, penetrating finish shaped by silky, even tannins. The interplay of power and finesse here is really something."

My new go-to white wine, this offers a lovely perfume of sea breeze, white flowers, aromatic herbs, and soft fruit. Mouthwatering citrus combines with a saline minerality that works so perfectly with food: fantastic with fish and seafood, great with salads, and even held its own with my version of a quick cassoulet. - Marcus

Fantastic Barolo. Deeply aromatic -- one sniff and you'll be thirsty. Brown spices and savory umami elements combine with a beautiful finesse and fullness, delivering Morello cherry and blood orange. Seamless and surprisingly elegant in tannin but with superb flavor cling, you will thoroughly enjoy this today if, like me, you can't resist young Barolo. Drink now through 2026. - Marcus

Silky-rich layers of black and red fruits, purple flowers, this is a wine that bounds with energy. When I think L'Orage I think velvet, which rolls from moment one through the awesome finish of mocha, sweet tobacco and licorice. Irresistible at this early stage and supremely age-worthy -- I don't thing you can go wrong with either choice. Never has L'Orage been so refined and so texturally brilliant. If it doesn't receive a massive score, the critics need to be fired! Ships March 1. - Marcus
