680News wine reviews – May 13–15, 2011 

Kangarilla Road Charlie's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2008
The jazzy red label of Kangarilla Road Charlie's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2008 mimics the Age of Aquarius hairstyle of the winemaker's son, Charlie. This Aussie blend is deep purple-ruby with a high-toned bouquet of blackberries and smoke. It's full in the mouth with flavours of black cherries and plums carried on lively acidity and ending with supple tannins that give the wine structure. It costs $12.95. An ideal wine for BBQ ribs or hamburgers. That's Kangarilla Road Charlie's Blend Shiraz Cabernet 2008 from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. ($12.95, LCBO #212720)

Fun Beaujolais 2009
Beaujolais has always been a fun wine. But nobody has ever actually labeled the bottle "Fun." That was, until George Duboeuf, the acknowledged king of the Beaujolais region, created an easy-drinking version. Fun Beaujolais 2009 has a whiff of oak on the nose, the flavour of cherries and a hint of sweetness balanced by sour cherry acidity. It costs $10.95 a bottle and you can chill it or drink it at room temperature whichever you prefer. A pizza wine if ever there was one. That's Georges Duboeuf Fun Beaujolais 2009 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($9.95 until May 22, then $10.95, LCBO #228155)
