Vintages Wine Picks March 6, 2010

White Wine

Wynns Estate Riesling 2008, Coonawarra, Australia: an attractive petrol, flint, mineral nose followed by lusciously ripe apricot on the palate. Medium-body. Very distinctive. Pair with: salt and pepper squid. Drink: 2010-2013. 528216 13%  750 mL  $16.95 Score: 88/100. March 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Kaiken Ultra Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, Mendoza, Argentina: Vintages Wine Panel: Kaiken is the Argentine venture of renowned Chilean winemaker Aurelio Montes, and the Ultra line is made with the best grapes from his vine-yards east of the Andes. This full-bodied Cabernet is ripe and concentrated, with bountiful black fruit, seamlessly integrated oak and fine structure. Expect it to improve further still over the next 2-3 years in bottle, or enjoy it tonight. My note: Great depths of delectable flavour. Warming and satisfying with fleshy blackberries and blackcurrant. Pair with: herbed roast beef served rare. 135202 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100.
