Dessert Wine

Reif Estate Winery Vidal Icewine 2009, V.Q.A., Niagara River, Ontario, Canada: Spectacular! Rich and unctuous with layers of peach and pear preserves. A honeyed essence tickles the senses right through to a long finish. Glorious dessert wine. Drink: 2012-2020. 544791 10% S 200 mL  $46.95 Score: 92/100.

White Wine

Quails' Gate Estate Winery Stewart Family Reserve Chardonnay 2009, VQA, Okanagan Valley, BC, Canada: A heavy-hitter Chardonnay firing on all sensual cylinders! Loaded with generous butter, oak, pear and pear notes. This wine was made using full barrel fermentation in French oak and then aged another 10 months in oak. Try it with lightly smoked sablefish with potato brandade or veal chop with sunchoke puree. Bring it on! Drink: 2011-2014. 639641 14.50% XD 750 mL  $32.99 Score: 93/100. January 3, 2012 Full Review
