Vintages Wine Picks August 20, 2011

White Wine

Cattail Creek Estate Winery Riesling 2009, V.Q.A., Four Mile Creek, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Lovely Riesling! Lime vibrancy with lemon mouth-watering juiciness. Drink: 2011-2015. 241547 12.50% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. August 20, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Lafond Srh Pinot Noir 2009, Santa Rita Hills, Santa Barbara, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: Medium ruby in the glass with layered spice, along with red and black fruit aromas. The palate is dry, balanced, well structured with some tannic grip working superbly in conjunction with the rich and full fruit. My note: Big acidity up front, but I like it! Black cherries and smoky oak with a plus texture and full-bodied weight. Very satisfying wine. Pair with: grilled salmon, grilled lamb with mushrooms and green onions. Drink: 2011-2015. 998666 14.50% XD 750 mL  $26.95 Score: 90/100. August 20, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
