Vintages Wine Picks January 9, 2010

White Wine

Wild Rock Elevation Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Crisp, refreshing notes of lime, green apples and lemon. Terrific mouth-watering acidity. The dashes of viognier (5%) and riesling (4%) round out the flavours and give the wine more dimensions. Wonderful companion to many dishes. 142828 13% D 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100.

Red Wine

Grove Street Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Sonoma County, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Grove Street Winery has been producing superb wines for over twenty years in the picturesque town of Healsburg, in the heart of Sonoma. This is truly an exceptional value for Cabernet from Sonoma. Opaque ruby in colour, it’s bursting with layered aromas of ripe cassis, raspberry, plum, cocoa and vanilla. It’s dry, with ample body and intense black fruit and spicy oak flavours supported by supple tannins, all culminating in a long, smooth finish. Very easy to love. My note: A full-bodied, exuberant red with loads of blackberry and black plum aromas. Decant for two hours and then sit back and enjoy the hedonistic tide of pleasure. 161190 14.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. January 9, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
