White Wine

Vavasour Sauvignon Blanc 2012, Awatere Valley, Marlborough, New Zealand: Grassy great and refreshing with lots of acidity. Medium-bodied without oak. The cool climate and porous soils of this region show in the expressive nature of this zippy wine. It's not easy being green, but it's delicious! Drink: 2013-2015. 713958 13.80% XD 750 mL  $18.95 Score: 90/100. May 10, 2014 Best Value White Wine. Venerated Vegetarian Wine Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Quails' Gate Estate Winery Merlot 2011, Okanagan Valley, BC VQA, Canada: A spectacular BC merlot with enticing aromas of fleshy dark fruit and smoke. Quail's Gate is what I'd call a merlot specialist, having elevated the whole varietal for the country. Love the cedar brush finish that leaves a wispy trail right back to the bottle. Superb craftsmanship. Pair with: Angus steak, cheddar cheese, beef quesadillas. Drink: 2014-2020. 169961 15.47% D 750 mL  $26.95 Score: 92/100. May 10, 2014 Top Rated Red Wine.
