Values Wine Picks August 22, 2007

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: May 14, November 15, October 16 and August 3.

White Wine

Beringer Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay 2005, Napa Valley, United States: A rich, buttery chardonnay with aromatic notes of pear and apple. Full-bodied. Done using a mix of barrel and steel fermentation and aged for 10 months in French oak. 348342 13% 750 mL  $28.15 Score: 88/100. August 22, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Marchesi de Frescobaldi Chianti Castiglioni 2005, Tuscany, Italy: A classic chianti. Full-bodied and well-balanced.
