680News wine reviews – January 14–16, 2011 

Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Cousiño Macul is one of the oldest wineries in Chile, dating back for 1856. Their earliest wines were made by French-trained vintners and that tradition remains to this day. Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 tastes very much like a red Bordeaux but with New World ripeness. Notes of cedar, blackcurrant and black cherries tantalize the taste buds. The tannins are ripe and supple. It costs $15.45 a bottle at the LCBO. Match it with lamb or duck breast. That's Cousiño Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($15.45, LCBO #212993)

Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010
Given the vagaries of Mother Nature, consistency from year to year is difficult for a winery to achieve. But somehow, each vintage, Oyster Bay in New Zealand manages to produce good quality wines with a recognizable personality. The 2010 vintage of Oyster Bay is quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon with its grassy, guava and passion fruit flavours carried on lively acidity. It costs $18.95 and is perfect with seafood – and, as you'd expect, oysters. That's Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2010 from New Zealand. If you miss any of these reviews you can find them by going to 680News.com and clicking on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($18.95, LCBO #316570)
