Top 10 wines in the US press23rd May, 2013 by Andy Young
Irene Virbila recommends a red wine that is “intense and concentrated, with a seductive tonal palate” while Sandra Silfven picks a “bold wine with power and restraint.”
Writing in the LA Times, Virbila’s choice is “a great red for barbecue season, with the stuff to stand up to smoke and char.”
She added: “Think bistecca or any big old steak, pork chops, sausages and kebabs — any or all with a mess of grilled red peppers, zucchini and eggplant.”
While in the Detroit News Silfven recommends a Zinfandel that is “made off 130-plus -year-old vines planted by Italian immigrants during the Gold Rush. The grapes are from a 20-acre site with shallow, rocky soils.”
She added: “Because of their age, the vines produce less fruit and the juice is highly concentrated and complex.”
