Values Wine Picks December 16, 2012

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: July 12, May 14, November 15 and October 16.

White Wine

Colio Estate Wines Girls' Night Out Riesling 2011, VQA, Lake Erie North Shore, Pelee Island, Ontario, Canada: A pretty, floral, light-bodied white with delicate notes of lime blossom. Terrific as an aperitif or with light seafood dishes. Pair with: grilled garlic chicken breasts, sauteed shrimp and scallops with Thai dipping sauce, lemon pepper ocean perch.. Drink: 2012-2014. 134197 11.60% MD 750 mL  $12.95 Score: 87/100. December 16, 2012 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Vineland Estates Winery Pinot Meunier 2011, VQA, Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada: A peppery, spicy, medium-bodied red with lovely aromas of damson plum and red currant. Wonderfully different. Supple and smooth with some dried herbs on the finish. Get out of your merlot rut with this wine. Drink: 2012-2017. 779327110050 13% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100.
