88 • Dr. Konstantin Frank 2012 Rkatsiteli, Finger Lakes $14.99. Best Buy.
Pale silvery straw color. Attractive aromas of peach and apple pastries with a dryish light-to-medium body and a tangy melon, lime, and a dusty mineral driven finish. Great Old World style and structure for the table, especially shellfish. (tasted on Dec-30-2013)
86 • Château Élan 2012 Muscadry, Georgia $14.95. Best Buy.
Bright aromas of Concord grape jam and raisin cakes with a crisp, fruity-yet-dry light body and a cream puff and kiwi skin finish with nice minerally tannins. Different and fun; try with spicy coconut shrimp or Pad Thai. (tasted on Dec-30-2013)
81 • Coda Rossa 2012 "Neve", New Jersey $12.|Find-a-Wine|
Pale golden color. Mild earthy nut shell and linen aromas and flavors with a bone dry light body and lean, grassy, gravely, lemon pith finish. Not much fruit here and rather severe stylistically. (tasted on Dec-30-2013)
