Vintages Wine Picks June 25, 2011

White Wine

Balthasar Ress Riesling Spätlese 1998, Q.M.P., Hattenheim Nussbrunnen, Rheingau, Germany: Truly a benchmark, best in its class! Sweetness yes, but its so seductive with the mouth-watering acidity to balance it and the peach essence that makes you close your eyes in its sunshine brightness. Drink: 2011-2015. 160762 8.50% MS 750 mL  $20.95 Score: 90/100. June 25, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Altocedro Año Cero Tempranillo 2009, La Consulta, Mendoza, Año Cero, Argentina: Vintages Wine Panel: Argentina has a strong Spanish culture, so it’s not that surprising that Tempranillo has been grown here for decades. For example, the vines used to make this wine are 47 years old. My note: Want big oak? Here you go. Plus there’s big, black fruit and a smooth texture. Drink: 2011-2014. 232678 13.90% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 88/100. June 25, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
