Values Wine Picks August 3, 2012

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: August 3, June 18, March 5 and February 26.



White Wine

Baron Phillippe De Rothschild Mouton Cadet Blanc Sauvignon Semillon Muscadelle 2011, Bordeaux, France: Generous and yielding with plump tree fruit aromas and flavours yet still beautifully structured, especially for this price. Aromas of lemon zest and chives. Great dinner party wine. Pair with: GRILLED FISH, SOLE MEUNIÈRE, SALMON WITH FRESH PASTA.. 2527 12.50% XD 750 mL  $13.45 Score: 89/100.

Red Wine

O'Leary Wines Vineland Estates Cabernet Merlot 2010, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Smoky with mocha richness that wraps around fleshy black plums. Shows pride of place along with a jubilant P/T multiple (price: taste). Pretty darn amazing really for the price. Drink: 2012-2016. 779327110067 13% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100.
