Red Wine

Marziano Abbona Terlo Ravera Barolo 2008, Piedmont D.O.C.G., Italy: As brooding as Bach, as dark as Heathcliffe: this is a towering monument to all dark forces that move us to delight. Tannic, yes so it could use cellar time and certainly decant 1-2 hours when opening it. Dark fruit, tar, violets and truffles comingle and delight. Drink: 2014-2022. 67918 14% XD 750 mL  $49.95 Score: 91/100. May 24, 2014 Best Beef Wine Full Review

White Wine

Konrad Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Love the profusions of aromas on the nose of this zippy New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! This is a very consistently good producer of kiwi savvy, and this particular vintage brings with it aromas of spring peas, limes, lemongrass and that summertime favourite of a freshly mowed lawn. Marlborough is a go-to region for Sauvignon Blanc. Try it with spinach quiche tonight. Drink: 2013-2016. 616243 13.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 92/100. May 24, 2014 Top Rated White Wine.
