680News wine reviews – October 5–7, 2007 

Flat Roof Manor Cabernet Sauvignon/Sangiovese 2005
In the Chianti region some producers blend some Cabernet Sauvignon with their Sangiovese wine. A South African producer, Ate Cake – which incidentally is spelled Uitkyk, pronounced Ate Cake – has taken up the idea and produced a kind of reverse concept: Cabernet Sauvignon with some Sangiovese. The label is Flat Roof Manor Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2005 – which speaks to the form of Dutch architecture of the eighteenth century in the Stellenbosch. The wine has a smoky, tarry, blackcurrant nose with flavours of currants and cherries. A well made dry, medium-bodied wine for $13.95. That's Flat Roof Manor Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2005 from South Africa. Good for red meat dishes. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.95, LCBO # 27110)

Vina Miguel Torres Santa Digna Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Miguel Torres has wineries on three continents – in Spain, California and Chile. And some of the best bargain wines come from Torres' Chilean operation in Curico. In Vintages is a first-rate Cabernet Sauvignon that comes on like a red Bordeaux. Torres' Santa Digna Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 is dense purple-black in colour, smoky blackcurrant nose; medium-bodied, firmly structured with richly extracted blackcurrant flavour, it finishes with mellow tannins. A wine that punches well above its weight. The price at vintages stores, $14.95. Try it with lamb. That's Miguel Torres Santa Digna Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95, Vintages #177451)
