Parker’s Picks: 2019

by Westgarth Wines February 20, 2019

Consumers have relied on critic Robert Parker for advice on how to buy premium wine. Forty years from when he began, he just released his tips for what to look for in 2019. It includes a focus on Rhône wines--the 2015 and 2016 vintages were great, and Southern Rhône wines like Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Pape will go with anything, even sushi. For Bordeaux, Parker advises checking out the Left Bank—2016 Saint-Émilion is unlikely to disappoint. He also gives some love to 2016 Southern Italy and California Zinfandel blends. Time to pop a bottle and see what he’s talking about.
