680News wine reviews – April 18–20, 2008 

Celliers des Dauphines Carte Noire 2005
Red wines from the Rhone Valley have always been good value. They work well with virtually all red meat dishes. The wines of the Cotes du Rhone in the south can be a blend of up to 13 varieties. The main ones are Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. A typical inexpensive example is Celliers des Dauphines Carte Noire 2005. Ruby colour with a sour cherry nose, it's medium-bodied and minerally, with cherry and cranberry flavours and lively acidity. It costs $10.85. That's Celliers des Dauphines Carte Noire 2005 from the Rhone. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($10.85, LCBO #110197)

Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell'Amore Moscato
If you want to make summer come a little quicker, try a bottle of Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell' Amore. This Muscat-based sparkler comes from Veneto. And it only has 6.5% alcohol. The nose tells you all about the taste: honey, orange blossom, so it's sweet and easy drinking. It costs $12.75 at the LCBO. That's Bottega Petalo Il Vino dell'Amore Moscato from Italy. If you didn't have the opportunity to make a note you'll find this review by visiting 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.75, LCBO #588780)
