June 18, March 5, February 26 and September 11.

White Wine

Averill Creek Vineyard Pinot Grigio 2008, Vancouver Island & Gulf Islands, BC, Canada: Incredibly mouth-watering, with great acidity to complement many dishes. Notes of white peach, tart limes. Cries out for food! Pair with: halibut, fresh scallops, summer salads. Drink: 2010-2013. 142463 12% MD 750 mL  $18.00 Score: 86/100. April 22, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Alvento Winery Aria Nebbiolo 2006, Niagara Escarpment, Canada: This is an absolutely fascinating wine, especially coming out of Niagara! Nebbiolo grapes are native to northern Italy, so it's interesting to see the wine they produce in quite a different region. This wine is mouth-watering with stunning aromas of violets, tart cherries and leather. Good grip; maximum pleasure. Pair with: lamb roast spiced with herbs and garlic with reduced wine sauce. Drink: 2011-2020. 167874 12.50% D 750 mL  $25.95 Score: 89/100. April 22, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
