680News wine reviews – February 8–10, 2008 

Peninsula Ridge Fumé Blanc 2006
One of the best dry white wines from Ontario I've tasted in a long time is Peninsula Ridge Fumé Blanc 2006. Fumé Blanc was a term coined by Robert Mondavi in the 1960s to describe a Sauvignon Blanc that had been aged in oak. Peninsula Ridge's celebrated winemaker, Jean-Pierre Colas, has brought all his Burgundian experience to produce a super wine. The nose is all smoky, cut grass and vanilla oak, the flavour rich and spicy with lively green melon and gooseberry notes. The price is $26.95, available only on line through www.winerytohome.com. That's Peninsula Ridge Fumé Blanc 2006 from Ontario. If you're driving and can't make a note of this or my other wine selections you can visit 680 News.com and click on my link for the reviews. For Post City Magazine. I'm Tony Aspler. ($26.95)

Coyote's Run Bob Izumi Red 2005
If you're a fisherman or a fisherlady you probably know that Bob Izumi, host of TV's Real Fishing Show, now has his own wine. It's made by a small Ontario winery called Coyote's Run, who produce Bob Izumi white, which is available at the LCBO, and Bob Izumi Red, which you can only get at the winery or online through www.winerytohome.com. I really like the red – a firmly structured, medium-bodied dry red wine with flavours of currants and dark chocolate. It costs $22.20 a bottle. With the sale of each bottle, $1 will be donated to the Fishing Forever Foundation. That's Bob Izumi Red 2005 from Niagara available at www.winerytohome.com. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler.
