680News wine reviews – November 6–8, 2009 

Viña Seña Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
If you think that all Chilean red wines are ready for drinking, you'd be surprised how well some of them cellar for four or five years. A prime example is Viña Seña Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 from Chile's Aconcagua Valley. It's available at Vintages outlets for $17.95 a bottle and really will repay a few years of laying down. Dense purple colour with a rich bouquet of blackcurrant, cedar and vanilla oak, it's full on the palate with spicy black fruit and chocolate flavours and a firm tannic finish. Match it with pepper steak or aged cheddar. That's Viña Seña Arboleda Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($17.95, Vintages #606764)

Southbrook Whimsy Fumé Blanc 2008
There are many Ontario wines that you don't find at LCBO outlets. You either have to order them from the winery or go to an on-line service like winerytohome.com. It's worth the effort to secure a bottle of Southbrook Vineyards Whimsy Fumé Blanc 2008. Whimsy is the label for winemaker Ann Sperling's small-lot production of wines that she has a whim to make. This Sauvignon Blanc costs $19.95. It's straw coloured with a lime tint and has evident oak on the nose; the flavour is grassy, green plum and tart gooseberry – very Bordeaux in style with great length. That's Southbrook Vineyards Whimsy Fumé Blanc 2008 from Ontario available through the winery or winerytohome.com. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler.
