Flat Rock Cellars Riesling 2010, V.Q.A., Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Soooooo lovely! Apricot and honeysuckle, but not sweet (just a touch balanced by acidity).

Cono Sur Viognier 2009, Chile, Chile: Everything’s coming up daisies with the 2009 Cono Sur Viognier, a lovely wine with notes of field flowers, peach and dried apricot.

Rodney Strong Wine Estates Pinot Noir 2008, Russian River Valley, Sonoma County, CA, United States: A full-bodied Pinot Noir with lusciously ripe black raspberries and black cherry liqueur running through its core. This wine has a lot weight for Pinot due to its alcohol level (14.9%) but that doesn't diminish its hedonistic pleasure. Velvet texture and a long finish. Decant for an hour. Drink: 2010-2013. 954834 13.90% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 90/100. July 20, 2010 Full Review
