Red Wine

Ravenswood Vintner's Blend Shiraz 2008, California, United States: A juicy-delicious, full-bodied red with lip-smacking tasty notes of black plums and cherries. Good grip and a savoury note running through the middle. Fire up the barbecue! Drink: 2011-2014. 135350 13.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. July 9, 2011 Full Review

White Wine

Firesteed Pinot Gris 2009, Oregon, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: An intense nose rich with ripe apple, pear and minerality. The palate is a touch off-dry offering a gentle sweetness. Juicy and flavourful with good minerality, apple and citrus tones and an intense finish. Perfect as a sipper, it will work beautifully with a grilled trout with lemon butter. My note: terrific, clean sipper without any heavy oak or alcohol. White melon and grapefruit… a streak of sunlight. Drink: 2011-2014. 568071 13.10% MD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 87/100.
