Vintages Wine Picks September 29, 2007

White Wine

Kim Crawford Dry Riesling 2006, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Vintages Wine Panel: This dry Riesling is made in a distinctively New Zealand style. It has zesty lime and grapefruit characters with an underlying minerality. The palate is clean and vibrant, with good depth of flavor and acidity. My note: Refreshing and bone dry. A little austere, so it's best consumed with food. Sealed with a screwcap. Pair with: shellfish like clams, scallops and mussels.. 626408 12.50% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 88/100.

Red Wine

Bodegas y Viñedos o Fournier BLASÓN DE SAN JUAN CRIANZA 2002, DO Ribera del Duero, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: The Ribera del Duero appellation is quickly establishing a reputation that is probably only second in quality to that of Rioja. This rustic red shows earthy and gamey notes followed by big tannins. There is a core of cherry fruit on the mid-palate. My note: A full-bodied wine with aromas of black fruit. Pair with: olives, grilled chorizo with hearty bread. 40790 14% D 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 89/100. September 29, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
