680News wine reviews – February 6–8, 2009 

Château Pey La Tour 2006
I came across a very stylish claret for the price at the LCBO. Claret is what the British call red Bordeaux. Okay, so I was born in London. Anyway, this wine is Château Pey La Tour 2006. Pey is spelled P-e-y. It's deep ruby in colour with a fragrance of red berries and forest floor; it's medium-bodied with well extracted sweet fruit with an earthy, cedar note. It costs an affordable $14.95 at the LCBO. Try it with roast lamb or aged cheddar That's Château Pey La Tour 2006 from Bordeaux. If you missed this or any of my reviews you can read then by going to 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($14.95, LCBO #264986)

Creekside Pinot Grigio 2007
Knowing my feelings about Pinot Grigio, I was not overly enthused about trying one from Ontario. But what a surprise. I'm here to tell you that Creekside Winery Pinot Grigio 2007 is well worth picking up. Lots of flavour here for the price, with lively peach and citrus tones. It has a medium straw colour; it's dry on the palate and medium-bodied. More tasty than most Pinot Grigios in this price range. It costs $13.95 a bottle at the LCBO. I had it with grilled salmon and it went very well. You could also try it with a nice runny Camembert. That's Creekside Pinot Grigio 2007 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($13.95, LCBO #83196)
