Vintages Wine Picks August 19, 2008


White Wine

Markus Molitor Kabinett Riesling 2007, Q.M.P., Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: A true visionary, Markus Molitor is driven by an uncompromising devotion to quality at all stages of the winemaking process and believes that each vineyard and vintage should express itself through his wines. In the Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard, only organic materials are used, yields are kept low, and grapes are hand-picked. Keeping with his philosophy of authenticity, Molitor ferments his wines using only wild ambient yeasts. This world-famous vineyard site is known for producing wines that are impressive for their juicy fruit, unique balance, nuance interplay and piquant acidity. My note: Great complexity and layers in this lushly ripe Riesling. Apricots and pears compete for your attention and delight the senses. Medium-bodied and persistent. Perfect for casual get-togethers. Pair with: various cheeses. 115634 11% M 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 91/100. August 19, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  


Red Wine

RavensWood Old Vine Zinfandel 2006, Lodi, California, United States: A richer, darker Zinfandel than in the past with more of a bite: love it! Complexity and layers are growing yet it holds true to the traditional signature of blackberries, brambleberries and a lick of dark spices. Jammy cherries and raspberries. 942599 14.50% D 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 92/100. August 19, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
