Peninsula Ridge Sauvignon Blanc 2006
Many of the best Ontario wines are not found on LCBO shelves. You have to either drive down to the winery or go on line to order the wines for home delivery. Each winery has its own website, but if you want to get the big picture of what's available online, visit winerytohome.com. One of the wines you'll find these is Peninsula Ridge Sauvignon Blanc A. J. Lepp Vineyard 2006 from the Niagara Peninsula. Winemaker Jean-Pierre Colas is well known for his Chardonnays but he's also making terrific Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is medium straw in colour with a minerally, grassy, green fruit bouquet. The flavour is fresh, lively, green plum and green apple – zesty on the palate with lingering grapefruit acidity. Good value at $19.15. It's only available at the winery or through www.winerytohome.com. That's Peninsula Ridge Sauvignon Blanc A. J. Lepp Vineyard 2006 from Niagara. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.

Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Chilean reds are generally fruit-forward and table ready when you buy them. But there is one Chilean producer who makes wine the old fashioned way. Wines to last. Cousiño Macul on the outskirts of Santiago, founded in 1856 and is still in family hands. They believe in wines that can age. Currently at the LCBO is their Antiguas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, which is about as French in style as you can get out of South America. Blackcurrant and chocolate on the nose, it's dry and full-flavoured with cassis and red pepper notes. It costs $15.15 a bottle and makes a great accompaniment to lamb chops. That's Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.15, LCBO #212993)
