680 NEWS wine reviews – May 25–27, 2007 

Graham Beck Railroad Red Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz
There are some wines that scream BBQ. Pull the cork and you can almost hear them yelling for the coals. That's the sense I got from Graham Beck Railroad Red Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz from South Africa when I first tasted it. You can almost smell the smoke. The wine is dense purple in colour, with a smoky, cedary, red berry nose; it's medium-bodied, with smoky, tarry, black cherry and dark chocolate flavours. The tannins on the finish are soft and supple. And the price? $12.35. That's Graham Beck Railroad Red Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz from South Africa. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.35, LCBO #665237)

Colio Lily
There's nothing like a chilled glass of dry sparkling wine to refresh you on the patio or on the deck or the dock. And you don't have to spend Champagne prices. Colio, in southwestern Ontario, makes a sparkler called Lily. The wine is medium straw in colour with a minerally nose showing apple and citrus notes. It's medium-bodied with a dry, apple flavour, good lively acidity that sustains the flavour on the palate to a clean, citrus finish. Its a very well made wine for $15.15 at Vintages outlets only. That's Colio Lily sparkling wine from Ontario. You can serve it as an aperitif wine or with Caesar salad. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.15, Vintages #509083)
