680News wine reviews – May 16–18, 2008 

Sutter Home White Zinfandel 2006
White Zinfandel has a bad rap. The wine that saved the California wine industry in the 1980s is now disdained by wine aficionados. But this simple off-dry wine is an ideal partner for spicy dishes or as an introductory wine. Sutter Home's 2006 White Zinfandel is pink with a raspberry nose; medium-bodied, off-dry with a candied raspberry flavour, it's well balanced with acidity. Try it well chilled with spicy Thai dishes or Mexican food and it's delicious. It costs $8.90 a bottle. That's Sutter Home White Zinfandel 2006 from Californ1a. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($8.90, LCBO #454355)

Three Thieves Bandit Merlot 2004
You probably guessed by now that I'm not a great fan of tetrapaks. Because generally the wine they put in cardboard deserves to be put in cardboard. Occasionally I find one that's actually drinkable. Like Three Thieves Bandit Merlot 2004 from California. It comes in a litre size for $12.85. It's an easy-drinking, fruity wine that tastes of blackberries with a soft, creamy mouth feel. Try it with braised ribs or mature cheddar cheese. That's Three Thieves Bandit Merlot 2004 from California in tetrapak. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($12.85, 1000 mL Tetrapak, LCBO #668939)
