White Wine

Frog's Leap Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Rutherford, Napa Valley, California, United States: Intense lemon vibrancy on the nose and palate, which also offers green apple tartness. Crisp and refreshing.

Red Wine

Château Grand Mayne Grand Cru Classé 2009, A.C. Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, France: Blackberry, tar and toasty oak with a full-bodied weight. Very dark and brooding. This needs cellar time then decant for 2 hours. A towering, well-structured wine that is in every sense muscular and powerful without fleshy ripe fruit. Pair with a rare steak. Drink: 2015-2019. 197848 13% XD 750 mL  $67.85 Score: 92/100. March 30, 2013 Best Beef Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
