Values Wine Picks April 28, 2010

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

White Wine

Robert Mondavi Winery Private Selection Chardonnay 2008, Central Coast, California, United States: Lovely rich texture with green apple, white peach and butter notes. Full-bodied but not heavy. Terrific balance with panache. Drink: 2010-2014. 379180 13.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100. April 28, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Paul Dolan Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Mendocino, California, United States: Dark chocolate mingles with black plums and berries on the nose. This gives way to a richly textured, full-bodied weight with smoky dark fruit and a long finish. Beautifully structured and balanced. Drink: 2010-2016. 135152 13.50% D 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 90/100.
