Vintages Wine Picks April 12, 2008

White Wine

Casa Santos Lima Casa Santos Lima Touriga Nacional 2005, Vinho Regional Estremadura, Portugal: Vintages Wine Panel: This stylish take on Portugal’s indigenous Touriga Nacional variety won a Silver Medal at the Concours Mondiale de Bruxelles 2007. Intensely colored and richly flavored, look for loads of ripe berry fruit, floral and chocolate flavors balanced by subtle tannins and medium acidity. My note: Good value for this full-bodied red with black raspberries and cherries. Pair with: roaster pork, barbequed ribs. 67074 13% D 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 89/100.

Red Wine

Viniterra Viniterra Syrah 2005, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina: Vintages Wine Panel: A superb value, this deep-purple-hued Syrah has layered raspberry, blackberry and sweet vanilla aromas and flavors along with notes of coffee, chocolate and spice. It’s dry, rich and smooth and very attractive. This is one to stock up on for the summer barbecue season. My note: Tremendous value for this simple but delicious red. 57927 13% XD 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 88/100. April 12, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
