Values Wine Picks May 7, 2009

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: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.

White Wine

Rosehall Run Rosehall Vineyard Chardonnay 2007, V.Q.A., Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada: Buttery, toasty, rich and deep: bring it on! Full-throttle Chardonnay with layers of ripe tree fruit flavors. Full-bodied with a luxurious texture. Pair with: cream sauces, lobster in butter, corn dishes, roast chicken. 111914 12.70% D 750 mL  $29.95 Score: 90/100. May 7, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Yalumba Shiraz Viognier 2007, South Estern Australia, Australia: Terrific and consistent producer of lip-smacking delicious and full-bodied reds. Love the way the way that the Viognier lifts and brightens the Shiraz flavors in this blend. Notes of black cherries and plums. Pair with: dark chocolate, bison, veniso, steak. 524926 14.50% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. May 7, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
