Values Wine Picks June 12, 2009

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.

White Wine

O. Fournier Urban Uco Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Mendoza, Argentina: Lovely aromatics of vibrant citrus-lime and some tropical fruit. Not herbal or grassy. Very fresh with good acidity. No oak. 12% XD 750 mL  $10.00 Score: 88/100. June 12, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
