Values Wine Picks July 15, 2008

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: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

Flat Rock Cellars Twisted 2007, Niagara, Ontario VQA, Canada: A blend of 60% riesling, 20% chardonnay and 20% gewurztraminer. An exotic and aromatic white with aromas of lychees and rose petals.
