Values Wine Picks January 6, 2010

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

Caliterra Caliterra Vineyard, Estate Grown Caliterra Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2009, Curicó Valley, Chile: Loaded with fresh mango and tropical fruit notes. This is exceptional value and quality for the price. Some pink grapefruit and green melon on the finish. Mouth-watering a dn delicious as an aperitif or versatile food companion. Drink: 2009-0. 275909 13% D 750 mL  $8.95 Score: 88/100. January 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Creekside Estate Winery Life Is Good Cabernet Merlot 2007, Niagara Escarpment, Canada: Bursting with black cherry-plum goodness, this smooth, full-bodied is a pleasant quaff. It's terrific for the price. Pair with: grilled burgers from your local diner, meatloaf, tomato pasta, Nana’s Beef Stew, 100% Wisconsin Cheddar or a roast beef hoagie. Drink: 2009-2012. 146860 12.50% MD 750 mL  $12.95 Score: 86/100. January 6, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
