Dessert Wine

Bulas Vintage Port Unfiltered 2009, Douro, Portugal: This rich and full-bodied port makes for an excellent dessert wine after dinner. It offers generous aromas and flavours of ripe black fruit, smoke and dark spices. This is a DO-designated wine, and an excellent value. Great cellar bottle. Drink: 2015-2022. 363119 20% S 750 mL  $49.95 Score: 94/100. February 1, 2014 Top Rated Dessert Wine. Divine Dessert Wine Full Review

White Wine

Mcwilliam's Mount Pleasant Elizabeth Cellar Aged Semillon 2006, Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia: There's nothing like Australian Semillon grape-based wines: you must try this one if you haven't sampled their delights previously. Semillon from Australia also differs vastly from Semillon in other regions of the world: here it has a complex beeswax, dry honey and lanolin bouquet and mouth-filling texture. Terrific balancing acidity for a wide range of dishes and a long finish to make you return to this bottle again and again. Drink: 2014-2020. 724492 10.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 93/100. February 1, 2014 Top Rated White Wine. Voluptuous Veal Wine Full Review
