Vintages Wine Picks June 26, 2010

White Wine

Flat Rock Cellars Seriously Twisted 2007, V.Q.A., Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula,Ontario, Canada: Lovely nutty enriched aromas with green apple goodness and fresh peach. I love this style. Get out of your white wine rut with this lovely number. 87783 11.70% D 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 89/100. June 26, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Rodney Strong Wine Estates Merlot 2006, Sonoma County, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Medium ruby hue. Lovely bouquet brimming with scents of blackberry, plum, sour/red cherry, mineral and hickory. Good aroma replays on the dry, medium-full bodied, plush yet elegantly fruity palate. Gentle tannins, bright acidity, and great harmony here. Terrific barbecue wine, especially with steak, or cellar for 2-3 years. My note: A Silver Medal winner at the 2010 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition in San Diego. Savoury and juicy with lovely balance. Fleshy dark plums and some spices and dried herbs. Absolute yum! Pair with: steak. 497933 13.80% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100. June 26, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
