Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2005 (Chile)
$13.95 for 1500 mL (LCBO #613224)
Ideal for BBQs. The wine is dense purple in colour, with a nose of cedar, vanilla and blackcurrants; it's full-bodied and dry with a flavour of red and blackcurrants. You can't beat it for value. ***½
Food match: red meat BBQs; pizza

Escudo Rojo 2002 (Chile)
$16.90 (LCBO #613224)
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Cabernet Franc is dense ruby in colour with a smoky, vanilla, chocolate and black fruit nose. It's medium-bodied, chunky on the palate with earthy, blackcurrant and black cherry flavours. ****
Food match: lamb shanks; steak

Mission Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2003 (British Columbia)
$20.95 (LCBO #553321)
We don't see a lot of wines from British Columbia in our market, but the reds grown in southern part of the province around Oliver and Osoyoos are impressive. This Cabernet is deep purple in colour with a bouquet of vanilla, cedar and blackcurrants with a grace note of rose petals; it's medium bodied, dry, well balanced with nicely integrated oak. ****
Food match: rack of lamb; grilled quail
