Vintages Wine Picks July 24, 2010

White Wine

Featherstone Winery Old Vines Riesling 2008, V.Q.A. Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada: This wine won the bronze medal at the 2009 Canadian Wine Awards. It’s an absolutely delightful Riesling bursting with fresh lime, dry apricot, lemon zest and white peach. There’s a deep vein of minerality running through the core that comes up sunshine on the finish. This wine is perfect as an aperitif. Bring it on! Pair with: seafood, salads, chicken. 64584 10.20% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 91/100. July 24, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

Tinhorn Creek Vineyards Tinhorn Creek & Diamondback Cabernet Franc 2007, South Okanagan Valley, BC VQA, Canada: Terrific aromas of blackberry, sage, cloves, dried herbs, red currant and pomegranate. The wine was aged in two and four-year-old American oak barrels. Don't think of Cab Franc as the poor cousin to Cab Sauvignon: this wine proved different! Drink: 2009-2016. 530717 14.30% D 750 mL  $17.99 Score: 88/100. July 24, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
