Pondview Estate Winery Gewürztraminer Riesling 2009, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Pale lemon-yellow, this offers up notes of lime, white roses, citrus zest and mineral. Off-dry with nice balancing acidity, it has fresh and pretty citrus and floral notes with a gentle touch of spice. The finish is quite refreshing. My note: clean, crisp and clear with lovely lychee, rose petal, white melon and light spices. No heavy oak and alcohol here. Great aperitif. Drink: 2011-2014. 234625 13.10% MD 750 mL  $14.20 Score: 87/100. July 9, 2011 Best Value White Wine. Full Review
Château Castegens Meritage 2006, A.C., Côtes De Castillon, Bordeaux, France: Full-bodied with incredible concentration and black cherry aromas. Some tannins so decant 1-2 hours. Terrific quality for the money. Drink: 2009-2014. 125856 12.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 90/100. July 23, 2011 Best Value Red Wine. Full Review
