Vintages Wine Picks September 29, 2007

White Wine

DR. Pauly-Bergweiler Riesling Kabinett 2006, QmP, Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg, Estate Btld., Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: A dense, rich yet delicate wine filled with apricot, orange and nectarine aromas and flavors. It is medium in sweetness with a long, concentrated finish that is ably balanced by a streak of acidity. My note: Gorgeous concentration of ripe pears and peaches. Has an underlining silver thread of acidity. Pair with: spiced seafood dished, chicken vindaloo. 912220 9% M 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 90/100. September 29, 2007 Favorite White Wine.

Red Wine

Valdivieso Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2004, Chile, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: This single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is made by New Zealander Brett Jackson from hand-picked grapes. Jackson’s influence is one of the primary reasons that Valdivieso has picked up many awards at international wine competitions of late. With its dark red color and its ripe, juicy flavor, this wine is an excellent example of a Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. My note: Gorgeous and vibrant aromas of ripe, red fruit. A touch tannic so decant for 1-2 hours. Pair with: grilled steak, roast beef. 32110 13.50% D 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 89/100. September 29, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
