Values Wine Picks July 6, 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: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.



White Wine

Quinta do Vallado 2008, Douro Valley, Portugal: Good aromatics of field flowers, citrus blossom and some hazelnut. Refreshing yet rich and full-bodied.
