Vintages Wine Picks March 31, 2007

White Wine

Chardonnay 2006, Twenty Mile Bench, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: We’re told that the previous vintage of this wine blew out the winery doors and it looks like the 2006 vintage is poised to do the same. It’s bursting with youthful aromas of sweet apple, cinnamon, melon, peaches and cream as well as perfumed floral notes. Dry, medium bodied, it’s fresh and youthful with the apple and melon flavors. Delicious and refreshing. My note: Lovely orange peel aromas with exotic floral notes. Pair with: shellfish, seafood, salads, tuna, fried chicken. 37879 D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100.

The Leeroy Reserve shows layered aromas of blackberry, creme de cassis, cherry, tobacco, and vanilla It’s packed with ripe dark berry and cherry flavors balanced by soft tannins and enough acidity to keep things harmonious and refreshing. My note: Stunningly rich and full-bodied. Pair with: lamb kebabs, beef tenderloin, beef stew, cheddar cheese, dark chocolate. 20578 13% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 92/100.
