Values Wine Picks March 28, 2011

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: July 12, May 14, November 15 and October 16.

White Wine

Woodbridge Winery Moscato 2009, California, United States: Perfumed lilies waft from the glass in a dance for your senses. There's some sweetness here but it's the delight orange blossom kind, not cloying. An amazing bring-on-summer wine! Pair with: glazed ham, fruit-based desserts. Drink: 2011-2013. 199216 9% MD 750 mL  $11.95 Score: 88/100. March 28, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Negrar Classico Cantina Sociale Valpolicella Amarone Della Valpolicella 2007, Veneto, Italy: Juicy, full-bodied and loaded with black fruit goodness. Some tangy sundried tomatoes dance along the background yielding to supreme satisfaction. This is such a superbly well-made wine. 44784 14.50% XD 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 90/100.
