Red Wine

Lailey Vineyard Merlot 2011, V.Q.A., Niagara River, Ontario, Canada: Savoury rich with expressive notes of black plum, berries and some herbal nuances. Nicely balanced and spice-infused finish. Cool climate merlot, like this one, has a pleasing edge to it. Drink: 2013-2015. 591396 13% XD 750 mL  $25.00 Score: 88/100. December 31, 2012 Best Beef Wine Full Review

White Wine

Cooper's Hawk Vineyards Riesling 2010, V.Q.A., Lake Erie North Shore, Ontario, Canada: A light-bodied, pretty white with white floral and peach notes. Nice acidity on the palate for seafood and shellfish. Balanced and lovely. This wine has won the Gold Medal at the All Canadian Wine Championships for previous vintages. It's steely and focused, like Mosel, Germany riesling. Excellent price. Drink: 2012-2016. 318402 11.20% M 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. December 31, 2012 Terrific Turkey Wine Full Review
