680News wine reviews – February 20–22, 2009 

Barefoot Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
In January I recommended a wine from California called Barefoot Cellars Chardonnay. This label of non-vintage wines made by the folks at Gallo has seven varietals at the LCBO, line priced at $9.95. The newest addition is Barefoot Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is plum coloured with a nose of currants and tobacco with a vanilla oak note. It's medium bodied with sweet, jammy fruit with a minty finish. Easy drinking and no chess problem. A good hamburger wine. That's Barefoot Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon from California. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($9.95, LCBO #97113)

Bouchard Père & Fils La Vignée Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2007
Red Burgundy can be pretty costly these days but if you're looking for a good introductory wine from the region at a reasonable price try Bouchard Père & Fils La Vignée Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2007. It's light ruby in colour with a bouquet of raspberries, violets and beetroot with a mineral note. It's light, dry and elegant with a fine spine of acidity. A versatile food wine, you could match it with chicken, light meat dishes or salmon. The cost: $16.95 a bottle. That's Bouchard Père & Fils La Vignée Pinot Noir Bourgogne 2007 from Burgundy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($17.95, LCBO #605667)
