Vintages Wine Picks November 7, 2009

White Wine

Schloss Reinhartshausen Erbacher Schlossberg Riesling Spätlese 2003, Q.M.P., Rheingau, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: This single-vineyard late-harvest Riesling is hitting its prime. Juicy, with tropical fruit and a stony finish, it’s an inspired choice alongside charcouterie. My note: Apricot-delight! Gorgeous aromas of ripe peach and pear. Mouth-watering. What a revelation. 129858 11% M 750 mL  $28.95 Score: 93/100. November 7, 2009 Favourite White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Castell Del Remei Gotim Bru Tempranillo Cabernet Merlot Grenache 2006, D.O., Costers del Segre, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: Tempranillo, Cabernet, Merlot and Grenache blend that has resulted in a pretty, fruity wine with aromas of red currants, raspberry, strawberry and a hint of earth. Dry and flavourful, this wine is brought nicely into line by a good seam of acidity. My note: Plummy, rich and delicious with full-bodied roundness and flavor. Blackcurrant and blackberry roll to the finish. Pair with: roast beef and mashed potatoes, top-grade smoked meat sandwiches. 982736 14% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100.
