Red Wine

Ramirana Gran Reserva Syrah 2004, Maipo Valley, Chile: Layers of plum, chocolate, spice and blackberry aromas waft out of the glass. Dry and flavorful with fine mid-palate tannins and a pretty sweet spiciness on the finish. My note: A rich, full-bodied and chocolatey wine. 41715 14.50% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 88/100.

White Wine

Casa Lapostolle Chardonnay 2006, Casablanca Valley, Chile: The Marnier-Lapostolle family, of Grand Marnier fame, has been involved in winemaking for generations. The same uncompromising approach to quality that has made their liqueur a world-wide success is applied to this winemaking endeavour. The exotic fruit and mineral aromas lead to a palate that is crisply dry, fresh and fruity. My note: A big old, oaky chardonnay is as comfy as your favortie jeans - buttery, round and accepting. 396986 14% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. August 4, 2007 Best Value White Wine. Full Review
