Vintages Wine Picks January 4, 2014

White Wine

Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier Dom Riesling 2011, Qualitätswein, Mosel, Germany: Beautiful! Floral with honeysuckle and apple blossom. Try it with glazed ham or roast turkey. Drink: 2013-2016. 359596 10% M 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 90/100. January 4, 2014 Smart Buy Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

La Pieve Barolo 2009, D.O.C.G., Piedmont, Italy: This full-bodied red wine offers enticing aromas of dark fruit, tar, toasty and spice. Barolo wines are rarely priced this affordably, so give this this Piedmont, Nebbiolo-based grape wine a try. The tannins are firm and there will be plenty of fruit here to bring balance. A real gripper but I like it! Big, black with a tarry streak through the middle. Black cherry resistance and some dark spices. Perfect for black magic nights. Pair with: beef stew. Drink: 2014-2018. 213132 15% XD 750 mL  $21.25 Score: 92/100. January 4, 2014 Best Beef Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
