680News wine reviews – November 2–4, 2007 

Ironstone Leaping Horse Vineyards Chardonnay 2006
Our rampaging dollar is making California wines less costly in our market, which is good news. In fact, you can buy some very drinkable wine under $13. Try Ironstone Leaping horse Chardonnay 2006. It comes from Lodi in California. It's not a complex wine but has loads of flavour. For $12.80 you get a wine with a spicy, oaky, tropical fruit bouquet. It's medium-bodied with sweet pear and pineapple flavours. Try it with BBQ chicken or pork loin. That's Ironstone Leaping Horse Chardonnay 2006 from California. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.80, LCBO #613257)

Vina San Pedro Castillo de Molina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
I am constantly amazed how Chile can produce really tasty wines for the price. Take Vina San Pedro Castillo de Molina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from the Lontué Valley. It costs $13.20 a bottle but it has an elegance and sophistication of a wine twice its price. Deep ruby in colour with a cedar and blackcurrant nose, it's beautifully balanced, firmly structured with good length. An ideal wine for lamb dishes. That's Vina San Pedro Castillo de Molina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from Chile. If you can't write that down, visit 680News.com and click on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.20, LCBO #339176)
