680 NEWS wine reviews – June 16–18, 2006 

Mad Dogs & Englishmen "Posh"
There's a wine from the Spanish region of Jumilla that has the longest name I've come across: Bodegas y Vinedos de Murcia Mad Dogs & Englishmen "Posh" Monastrell Cabernet Sauvignon Tempranillo 2002. It's only available at Vintages stores. This homage to the Noel Coward song is dense purple-black in colour with a nose of blackberries, sage leaf and vanilla oak; it's full-bodied and chunky on the palate with flavours of sweet blueberries, rose petals and dark chocolate; thick and viscous, it's a wine to serve with barbecued steak, and it costs $17.95. That's Mad Dogs & Englishmen for short. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (Vintages stores #673616)

Southbrook Cabernet Merlot 2002
Southbrook Farm Winery, located at Bathurst & Major Mackenzie, sources its grapes from the Niagara Peninsula. They intend to build a winery there next year. Currently at the LCBO is Southbrook Cabernet Merlot 2002. This wine is very well priced at $14.95. It's ruby-purple in colour with a bouquet of cedar and raspberries with a whiff of oak; it's medium-bodied, reminiscent of a red Bordeaux with its flavour of dry currants, vanilla oak with a firm tannic finish. Great for serving with lamb dishes. That's Southbrook Cabernet Merlot 2002 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. (LCBO #669333)
