680 NEWS wine reviews – March 24–26, 2006 

Gonzales Byass Tio Pepe Extra Dry Palomino Fino (Jerez, Spain)
The best way to stimulate your appetite is to have a glass of dry sherry before a meal. And they don't come any drier than Gonzales Byass Tio Pepe Extra Dry Palomino Fino. It's white gold in colour with a nose of camomile, green nuts and sag. It's delicate and light and very dry with flavours of green tea and nuts and an amazingly long finish. Serve it chilled with salted nuts or cubes of ham or shrimp. Iy costs $14.75 a bottle. That's Gonzales Byass Tio Pepe Extra Dry Palomino Fino Great value. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
$14.75 (LCBO #242669)

Vina Tarapaca Merlot 2004 (Maipo Valley, Chile)
If you're looking for a tasty Merlot under $10, check out Vina Tarapaca Merlot 2004 from Chile's Maipo Valley. It definitely is Merlot and not Carmenere, the grape commonly mistaken for Merlot in Chile. The wine is dense purple colour in colour with a smoky, blackcurrant and minerally nose; it's medium to full-bodied, dry and chunky in the mouth with a blackcurrant flavour and an earthy note. It finishes with soft tannins. You won't find a better Merlot at the price. Try it with shoulder of lamb or beef stew. That's Vina Tarapaca Merlot 2004. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
$9.45 (LCBO #558668)
