Vintages Wine Picks December 10, 2011


White Wine

Carmen Wines Reserva Chardonnay 2010, Chile, Chile: The 2010 Carmen Reserva Chardonnay wins the Best Brie Wine award! It’s caramel, toffee depths are a perfect backdrop for such a rich cheese. The green apple and citrus notes give the wine a mouth-watering vibrancy. Top me up! Pair with: lobster in butter, rich pasta dishes, lemon chicken. Drink: 2010-2013. 235663 12% D 750 mL  $10.00 Score: 87/100. December 10, 2011 Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  


Red Wine

Alamos The Wines of Catena Malbec 2009, Mendoza, Argentina: Vintages Wine Panel: Catena’s Alamos Malbec is always a fine ambassador for Argentina’s signature grape. Be prepared for a rich, full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavours of raspberry and cassis blessed with heavenly doses of chocolate and sweet spice from the light oak ageing. My note: A pleasant sipper with lovely blackberry aromas. Medium- to full-bodied and smooth. A solidly made wine with terrific balance. Ripe blackberries and pepper. Perfect for barbecue and movie night. Pair with: lasagna. Drink: 2010-2014. 467951 13.50% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 88/100.
