White Wine

Joseph Cattin Gewurztraminer 2011, A.C., Alsace, France: Superb! Class Gewürz : rose petal, lychee and baking spice aromas. Mouth-watering and dry yet exotically floral. Previous vintages of this wine won the Gold Medal at the coveted Concours Général Agricole in Paris. Medium-bodied and mouth-filling. Perfect for Asian dishes and mild to medium curries. Pair with: ham. Drink: 2013-2018. 224626 13% M 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 93/100. December 7, 2012 Spectacular Spicy Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Veramonte Primus Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah Merlot Carmenere 2010, Colchagua Valley, Chile: Juicy-wonderful! Just dripping with fleshy berry flavor and plums. I love it! This wine is a blend of about a third cabernet sauvignon, a third syrah, and the balance split between merlot and carmenere grapes. Superb craftsmanship; great value. Pair with: brisket, beef ribs, pork chops. Drink: 2013-2016. 712463 14.50% D 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 93/100. December 7, 2012 Plush Pork Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
