Vintages Wine Picks March 28, 2009


White Wine

Colio Estate Wines Musque Chardonnay 2007, V.Q.A., Lake Erie North Shore, Ontario, Canada: Chardonnay Musqué is a clonal cousin of Chardonnay, but it tends to be more redolent of honeysuckle, orange peel and apricot. This wine has that lovely bouquet plus a succulent medium-bodied richness and a honey-infused finish. Pair with: baked ricotta on toast, stir-fried vegetables, turkey scaloppini, kugel, raw oysters, crab cakes with a spicy tartar sauce. 116509 14% D 750 mL  $15.55 Score: 89/100.

Red Wine

Colio Estate Wines Colio Cev Merlot Barrel Aged Reserve 2002, V.Q.A., Lake Erie North Shore, Ontario, Canada: This wine won the Best Merlot at the 2005 Cuvée Wine Awards. A full-bodied beauty with saturated aromas of blackcurrant, coffee and cassis on the nose and a follow-through of violets, truffles and smoke on the palate. Good structure and nice length. Pair with: roast beef with gravy, meaty stews, goose, romano cheese, french baguette, lasagna. 500447 12.70% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100.
