Weekly Wine Picks 6/26/05

Monte Xanic 2003 Guadalupe Valley Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon (Mexico) $9.99

This fresh clean wine shows a deep straw gold color. Characterized by its aromas of citrus, pear and waxy fruit, the medium-bodied, thirst-quenching wine is filled with a potpourri of spices, citrus fruits and delicate notes of vanilla, caramel and butter.

Drink well with fresh oysters, smoked salmon or Caesar salad

The Black Chook 2004 Langhorne Creek Shiraz/Viognier $16.99

A beautiful black purple color gives stunning presence to this wine. Wonderfully seductive aromas of cherries, blackberries and dark spices with subtle floral hints lead into a mouthful of flavors from blueberry to coffee to pepper. Rich and full bodied with a fine knit tannin finish.

Drink with your favorite grilled steak
