Values Wine Picks July 6, 2012

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: October 16, August 3, June 18 and March 5.



White Wine

Thirty Bench Wine Makers Small Lot Steel Post Riesling 2011, VQA, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada: Incredibly intense yet laser light. Lots of minerality and layers with flavours of Asian pear and why peach. A gorgeous, mouth-watering lime finish. Pair with: creamy camembert and fresh breads; spiced shrimp skewers; sushi; grilled white fish; sautéed scallops with a cauliflower risotto; steamed mussels; lightly spiced curry dishes. Drink: 2012-2017. 319640 11.10% D 750 mL  $30.00 Score: 94/100. July 6, 2012 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  


Red Wine

Doña Paula Los Cardos Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Mendoza, Argentina: Some kind of wonderful, especially at this price! Classic cabernet with terrific structure and balance. Etnicing aromas of cassis and blackcurrant. Wow. Drink: 2013-2014. 633636 14% D 750 mL  $14.30 Score: 89/100. July 6, 2012 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
