White Wine

Hermanos De Domingo Molina Hermanos Torront├ęs 2011, Cafayate Valley, Salta, Argentina: The grapes in the Cafayate vineyard are planted at an altitude of 5500 feet which gives them good acidity, yet there's a splendid floral character here too that lovers of the Torrontes grape have come to appreciate. Medium-bodied, refreshing and dry, with a solid finish. Great price. Drink: 2013-2015. 303685 14% XD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 88/100.

Red Wine

Brigaldara Valpolicella 2011, D.O.C., Veneto, Italy: Mouth-watering aromas and flavours of tart cherries with a touch of smoky oak and mocha. Terrific food wine, especially for meat dishes. This wine is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. There is some anise and pepper on the finish. Medium-bodied and satisfying. Pair with: meatloaf, lentil patties, Italian style pizza, salami, veal shanks, charcuterie, soft cheeses. Drink: 2012-2015. 917864 14.50% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100.
