Vintages Wine Picks August 21, 2010

White Wine

Flat Rock Cellars The Rusty Shed Chardonnay 2008, V.Q.A., Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Buttery and round with a peach core that drives me back to this bottle. Minerality even with the plushness of the Chardonnay. Great effort! 1552 12% XD 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 89/100. August 21, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Mendoza, Argentina: Decanter magazine named Nicolás Catena as ‘Man of the Year’ for 2009, crediting the visionary with changing the direction of Argentina’s wine industry. Catena’s Alamos range consistently offers superb quality and value. A berry-cherry nose with soft, supple layers of cassis and blackberry on the palate. Full-bodied with good acidity, judicious use of oak and satisfying flavors. Great value for this quality. 467944 13.50% D 750 mL  $13.95 Score: 88/100.
