680News wine reviews – October 8–10, 2010 

Little Yering Pinot Noir 2008
To get a Pinot Noir under $20 that actually tastes like Pinot is no easy task. But here's an Aussie candidate that is delicious for $14.95. Little Yering Pinot Noir 2008 from the Yarra Valley is tawny ruby in colour with a high toned nose of cranberries and raspberries; the fruit is sweet balanced by lively tangerine acidity. It's a versatile food wine that you could drink with grilled salmon or roast duck. That's Little Yering Pinot Noir 2008 from Australia at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #188094)

Château Le Peyrat 2006
Château Le Peyrat is a small winery in the Côtes de Castillon, one of the lesser-appreciated satellite regions of Bordeaux. Which means their prices are not as elevated as the neighbouring St. Emilion. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small percentage of Cabernet Franc is worth cellaring for a year or two – especially since its price at Vintages is $14.95 a bottle. The wine has that characteristic cedar, red berry and vanilla oak nose. The flavour is dry with well extracted fruit and gripping tannins. When you get around to opening it, give it an hour or two in the decanter and serve it leg of lamb. That's Château Le Peyrat 2006 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #171090)
