 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Cookoothama Shiraz 2005
  • Fat Bastard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
  • St. Francis Chardonnay 2005
 

Cookoothama Shiraz 2005 (Australia)
$14.20 (LCBO #619460)
Cookoothama is Nugan Estate's second label. This is a slap-you-on-the-back wine with oodles of flavour. Deep purple in colour, it has a fresh brambleberry nose. Savoury and sweet at the same time it has lively acidity, a touch of spicy oak and a floral grace note. Ideal for red meat dishes. ***½
Food match: braised ribs; beef stew

Fat Bastard Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 (Pays d'Oc)
$14.95 (LCBO #28506)
A Cabernet Sauvignon called Fat Bastard has got to be better than its name, otherwise it's a mere conversation piece. You get real varietal character here – that telltale blackcurrant and cedar flavour with a tannic lift on the finish. ***½
Food match: lamb chops; old Cheddar

St. Francis Chardonnay 2005 (Sonoma County)
$22.95 (Vintages #317131)
A quintessential Sonoma Chardonnay. Straw coloured with an oaky, spicy nose; full-bodied, richly extracted, sweet pineapple and toast flavours. Great length. ****½
Food match: Pork tenderloin; grilled lobster
