Vintages Wine Picks July 21, 2007

White Wine

Kim Crawford Sp Tietjen Chardonnay 2006, Gisborne, North Island, New Zealand: Vintages Wine Panel: This wine is bold with upfront aromas of ripe peach and pear fruit and toasty oak. It’s dry, medium full-bodied with lush fruit flavors and layers of nuts and creamy oak notes. My note: A gorgeous chardonnay that is not too heavy with buttery notes. 948166 13% D 750 mL  $31.95 Score: 90/100. July 21, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Clos Du Val Cabernet Sauvignon 2003, Napa Valley, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon has generous aromas of ripe cherries and blackberries with a mild smoky/spice weaving its way through the fruit. Ripe tannins and balanced acidity keep the wine lively. My note: A terrific, balanced wine with Old World finesse and New World flair. Pair with: grilled steak, sauteed mushrooms. 325779 13.50% D 750 mL  $35.95 Score: 90/100. July 21, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
