Values Wine Picks January 3, 2013

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: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.

White Wine

Ghost Pines Chardonnay 2010, Napa, Sonoma, Monterey, California, United States: Rich and round with lovely aromas of butterscotch, vanilla smoke and ripe peach. Full-bodied and mouth-filling, but not heavy. Solid value for this price. Try it with pasta in a cream sauce. Pair with: buttered popcorn, roast chicken, lobster in butter. Drink: 2012-2015. 308122 14% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. January 3, 2013 Charming Grilled Chicken Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Brotte La Fiole Regional Blended Red 2010, Cote Du Rhone, France: Full-bodied, rustic and tasty with aromas of cedar forest and wild black cherry. This is a syrah and grenache noir grape blend.
