Wine list

This week's picks (prices are retail; restaurant markup varies):

<b>Husch, 2012 Anderson Valley Gewurztraminer,</b> 13.9 percent alcohol, $14. A floral gew?rztraminer with a range of flavors. Notes of grapefruit, nectarine and honeysuckle. Lovely.

<b>Loring Wine Company, 2012 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir,</b> 14.7 percent, $32. A lush pinot dripping with fruit. Has depth. Lingering finish. A knockout.

<b>Dry Creek Vineyard, 2011 Dry Creek Valley Old Vine Zinfandel,</b> 14.5 percent, $30. A sexy zin with bright cherry and black raspberry flavors, with notes of herb and white pepper. Racing acidity. Gorgeous.

<b>Palmeri, 2011 Sonoma County Red Wine,</b> 14.8 percent, $54. Really good. Complex with aromas and flavors of black raspberry, black cherry, cedar and dark chocolate. Firm tannins. Deep and brooding? Absolutely.
