White Wine

Inniskillin Niagara Estate Legacy Pinot Gris 2009, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Canada: And now for something completely different and lovely: aromas of melon and exotic white flowers with a little honeysuckle blowing in the breeze from your glass. Great mouth-watering action in this medium- to full-bodied white. Pair with: turkey with all the trimmings, spicy Thai cuisine, creamy soups, flavourful seafood dishes with rich sauces. Drink: 2010-2013. 80002627 14% D 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 90/100. May 8, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Plunkett Fowles Stone Dwellers Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Strathbogie Ranges, Australia: Plush black plums waft out of the glass wrapped in a subtle smoky spice. This is pure liquid luxury. Full-bodied and smooth with aromas of blackcurrant and cassis. Beautifully structured and balanced. An amazing dinner party wine. Pair with: AAA New York striploin steak with a creamy mushroom sauce. Drink: 2011-2019. 212761 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 92/100. May 8, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
