Airport lounge wines are usually disappointing. However right here in Los Angeles within the American Airways lounge at Terminal four I discovered some wines I truly actually needed to drink.

Zarate Albariño 2018 Rias Baixas, Spain
Benchmark Albariño with a barely smoky edge to the candy citrus and apricot fruit, with some generosity but in addition eager acidity conserving issues contemporary. That is actually tangy and brilliant with some citrus peel notes and a little bit of fleshiness. Actually refined with good focus. 90/100

Talley Chardonnay 2016 Arroyo Grande, California
A wealthy, daring, mealy Chardonnay, however not overblown, with candy ripe pear and peach fruit and a touch of caramel and vanilla within the background, with contemporary fruit dominating. Has a pleasant spicy framing. Loads of quantity right here, however with adequate steadiness, in a basic California fashion. 90/100

Tenute de Terre Nerre Etna Rosso 2017 Sicily, Italy
There’s a tiny little bit of fading on the rim right here, with what looks as if a little bit of early improvement. However it’s truly contemporary and scrumptious, with a savoury, stony, mineral edge to the marginally stewed crimson cherry and berry fruits. Has a touch of mint and cedar, too. Finishes with some grip. 89/100

Zuccardi Concreto Malbec 2017 Altamira, Mendoza, Argentina
Entire cluster ferment and aged in concrete eggs. Intense, vivid color with a brilliant, floral blackcurrant and black cherry nostril. The palate exhibits good focus and freshness with pretty texture to the black fruits, with a seamless core of ripe fruit but in addition good construction and acidity. A stupendous main, fruit-forward wine. 93/100

Emily’s Miner Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Napa Valley, California
14.2% alcohol. This exhibits pretty steadiness. There’s ripe blackcurrant and berry fruit, but in addition a pleasant stony, gravelly, chalky construction, with some savoury complexity in addition to clean, candy fruit. Fairly harmonious with good weight and steadiness. 91/100
