White Wine

Passaggio Wines New Generation Unoaked Chardonnay 2009, California, United States: A delightfully fresh and vibrant Chardonnay with the pure essence of green apples and limes. Mouth-watering and delicious. This is a lovely wine when you want the taste of Chardonnay, but not the heavy oak or alcohol. Terrific! Pair with: antipasto salad, salmon, chicken and seafood dishes. Drink: 2011-2013. 13.20% D 750 mL  $16.00 Score: 88/100. April 22, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Painted Rock Estate Winery Ltd. Merlot 2008, Okanagan Valley, BC, VQA, Canada: Smooth, rich and full-bodied with succulent aromas of fleshy dark berries and plums. Some savoury, meaty notes on the mid-palate. This wine has 5% Malbec in the blend and was aged for 18 months in French oak. The result is a superbly craft wine, with a long finish and a pleasant bite through the richness. Pair with: filet mignon, prime rib. Drink: 2011-2021. 242768 14% XD 750 mL  $40.00 Score: 93/100.
