680 NEWS wine reviews – July 14–16, 2006 

Dog House Checkers' Cabernet Sauvignon (California)
I have to tell you I'm getting a little tired of critter wines. That's wines that take their inspiration from the pet store rather than the vineyard. But a new release from California's Kendall-Jackson caught my attention. Dog House Checkers' Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 is deep ruby-purple in colour with a spicy blackcurrant nose and a hint of oak. It's medium-bodied and well extracted with a sweet cassis flavour and a firm finish. It costs $14.85. Try it with barbecued lamb. That's Dog House Checkers' Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 from California. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.85, LCBO #619478)

EastDell Summer Rosé 2005
Ontario can make some very tasty rosés. The vintners make their rosés by draining off the fermented juice from a tank of wine to concentrate the colour and flavour of their red wines. And rosé is the ideal summer wine because it looks great in the glass. EastDell Summer Rosé 2005, listed on the LCBO website at $8.05, is pink with an orange tint; strawberries on the nose and medium-bodied, it has a sweetish strawberry and cherry flavour, a soft mouth feel and a note of orange on the finish. Try it with chicken salad or cold ham. That's EastDell Summer Rosé 2005 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($8.05, LCBO #560243)
