Red Wine

E. Guigal Gigondas 2009, A.C., Rhône, France: This savoury, juicy blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah grapes is stunning! Aromas of fleshy black fruit, pepper, dark spices and some smoke. Underbrush and black raspberry weave through the long finish. Full-bodied weight yet perfectly balanced. Drink: 2013-2017. 331900 14% D 750 mL  $31.95 Score: 92/100. April 13, 2013 Top Rated Red Wine. Best Beef Wine Full Review

White Wine

Cloudy Bay Vineyards Ltd Te Koko Sauvignon Blanc 2009, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Clementine and lemongrass on the nose. Very intense and concentrated wine with full-bodied weight. Yet it's still clean, crisp and refreshing with terrific mouth-watering acidity for a wide range of dishes. Finishes with more lemon zest. Drink: 2012-2016. 84897 13.50% D 750 mL  $47.95 Score: 91/100. April 13, 2013 Scrumptious Seafood Wine Full Review
