Vintages Wine Picks October 24, 2009

White Wine

Max Ferd. Richter Riesling Spätlese 1992, Q.M.P., Mülheimer Sonnenlay, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: This medium-in-sweetness wine offers an excellent opportunity to taste a Riesling from the Mosel that’s in the mid-swing of its evolution. Look for fresh grapefruit, lime and elderflower notes co-mingling with secondary nuances of citrus rind and a hint of petrol, in addition to mineral notes. This gently sweet wine makes a yummy sipper. My note: Pretty and floral with light notes of ripe peach and pear. Soft acidity. Great aperitif. Pair with: fresh fruit platter, soft cheeses. 140780 9% M 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 88/100. October 24, 2009 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Toasted Head Merlot 2006, North Coast, California, United States: Vintages Wine Panel: This big, round, mouth-filling Merlot features exuberant black cherry and raspberry aromas plus complex hints of spice, licorice, lavender and chocolate. My note: Mocha-rich, dark and round with full-bodied layers of blackberry and spices. Pair with: lamb, beef, chicken kebabs. 969816 14% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100.
