The Liquor Control Board of Ontario features a California promotion from July
24 to August 17. Having tasted many of the California wines listed, here are
my picks for value:
Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc 2000
Greenish lemony colour; soft and spicy with a flavour of pears and white chocolate.
Turning Leaf Chardonnay 2000
Straw colour; toasty, smoky nose – evident oak; sweetish tropical fruit
Fetzer Eagle Peak Merlot 2000
Ruby colour; blueberry nose with a floral note; elegant, sweet blueberry-blackberry
fruit; good balance of acidity; well made.
