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: October 16, August 3, June 18 and March 5.

White Wine

Rosenblum Cellars Viognier 2007, Clarksburg, California, United States: Beautifully floral and aromatic with lychee and rose petal aromas. I'd wear this as perfume if it didn't make sticky! It's such a lovely white wine that would complement so many dishes, from medium curries and Asian dishes to seafood, pasta and chicken. Stunning! Give it as a gift to a woman you're trying to woo. Drink: 2010-2013. 13.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 92/100. April 28, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Kenwood Vineyards Pinot Noir 2008, Russian River, California, United States: A silky-smooth Pinot with beautifully integrated barrel maturation. Terrific balance and structure with a mouth-wateringly dry finish. Fleshy ripe cherries dance across the palate. Seductively slippery. I often order this Pinot when I see it on a restaurant list. Drink: 2010-2016. 943225 13.50% D 750 mL  $25.95 Score: 90/100. April 28, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
