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: November 15, October 16, August 3 and June 18.

White Wine

Rosehall Run SZ White 2011, V.Q.A., Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada: A pretty floral white with aromas of lime blossom. A zesty, crisp acidity makes it a versatile food companion. This blend of seven grapes leads with riesling, ehrenfelser and chardonnay musque. Pair with: crab cakes or light seafood dishes, summer sipping. Drink: 2012-2014. 214478 11.50% MD 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 87/100. June 18, 2014 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Villa Maria Private Bin Pinot Noir 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand: The consistency of Marlborough Pinot Noir is remarkable, and especially for Villa Maria. This winery has a signature Pinot that comes through each year yet reflect the vintage differences.Plush and voluptuous: you'll want to dive head first into this wine (or your glass) and never come out. Fleshy cherries balanced with a nervy acidity that makes it dance with many dishes. Yes please! Drink: 2013-2018. 146548 13.50% D 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 92/100.
