The globe-trotting Matter of Taste walkabout tastings have celebrated different regional themes with every city, but the wine focus of New York’s installment will be “Reviewers’ Choice: Icon Wines of the World.” All eight reviewers on the publication’s expert team – led by Robert M. Parker Jr. himself – have nominated their favorite finds from throughout the wine world to feature at New York’s Matter of Taste and they will be on hand throughout the event to discuss the wines and answer questions. Taste over 150 of the world’s best Icon Wines, spanning a vast range of grapes, regions and styles. Rock star winemakers will be pouring their wines, including iconic names such as: Château Pontet-Canet (Pauillac), Château Haut-Bailly (Pessac-Leognan), Verite (Napa), Cayuse (Washington), Clarenden Hills (Australia), Cullen (Australia), Greywacke (NZ), Kumeu River (NZ), Niepoort (Portugal), Fontodi (Tuscany), JJ Prum (Germany) and Marcus Molitor (Germany) – just to name a few!
This is the perfect chance to compare and contrast wines across winemaking styles as well as terroir to determine what you love the most – all while talking to the winemakers who make the award-winning wines and the critics who review them.
So join us at the Mandarin Oriental on Saturday, February 20th from 2pm-6pm for over 150 wines that have each been rated RP 90 points or higher.

HEDONISTIC WINES CAN BE CRITICIZED BECAUSE IN ONE SENSE THEY PROVIDE SO MUCH ECSTASY THAT THEY CAN BE LABELLED “OBVIOUS”, BUT THEY ARE TOTALLY GRATIFYING WINES THAT FASCINATE AND ENTHRALL. PLEASURE AT ITS BEST.” Robert Parker Read More >
