680News wine reviews – June 6–8, 2008 

Harvey's Orange
Harvey's Orange is not the title of a new movie but a new concept from a very conservative part of the wine world. It's a sherry that has been flavoured with orange peel and it makes a delicious aperitif when served chilled. Think of a nutty off-dry sherry with candied orange peel and you get a sense of the flavour. Serve it neat or with ice cubes. It costs $15.95 a bottle. That's Harvey's Orange. If you miss these reviews you can read them by visiting 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.95, LCBO #74039).

Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
If you're looking for a New World Cabernet Sauvignon made in Old World style, try Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from Chile. It's not as fruit-driven as most Chilean Cabs but more elegant and stylish. It has a deep ruby colour with a mature rim; the nose is blackcurrant and eucalyptus with a note of leather. The mouth feel is velvety and full on the palate with a sweet and savoury flavour; well balanced with soft tannins. It costs $15.35. A wine for lamb chops or mature cheddar. That's Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($15.35, LCBO #212993)
