Vintages Wine Picks September 18, 2010

White Wine

Featherstone Winery Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling 2009, Niagara Escarpment, Canada: This is such a pretty Riesling! Lovely ripe melon and white peach with field flowers. Light in alcohol but packed with flavour. Perfect for a spring day, or a summer day, or a fall day ... 80234 10% MD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 91/100.

Red Wine

Wayne Gretzky Estates No. 99 Pinot Noir 2007, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Gretzky’s 2007 Pinot Noir could double as a good quality Bourgogne. The medium ruby color is followed by aromas of black cherry, earth, strawberry preserves and cedar. It’s dry with surprising tannic grip and bright acidity providing ample structure. Medium-bodied with a solid core of cherry fruit, earth and beetroot notes. Enjoy over the next 3-4 years with rare roast beef, veal tenderloin, or grilled portobello mushrooms. My note: Tart and juicy with lip-smacking delicious aromas of tangy cherries and dark spices. Supple, smooth and clean with great refreshment value. Score another one for the Great One. 129056 12.50% D 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 89/100. September 18, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
