Red Wine

Gallo Family Frei Ranch Vineyard Zinfandel 2009, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California, United States: Very juicy and purple plum rich with succulent blueberries and full-bodied smooth roundness.

White Wine

Marc Brédif Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2009, A.C., Loire, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Aromas of peach, apple, mineral, lanolin and citrus fruit lead to a palate that is off-dry, with very good depth of flavour and a fine core of acid. The whole package is wrapped up with a nice long finish. A great wine for a vast array of Asian fusion cuisine. My note: Lemongrass and lime zest with terrific mouth-watering acidity. Clean and crisp: ideal for many dishes from seafood to vegetarian dishes. Drink: 2011-2014. 685362 13% MD 750 mL  $20.95 Score: 88/100. October 29, 2011 Full Review
