680News wine reviews – May 20–22, 2011 

Durbanville Hills Shiraz 2008
If you like the fruit-forward Australian Shiraz-style wines, you'll find a good bargain from South Africa. Durbanville Hills Shiraz 2008 costs $11.95 a bottle. It's a deeply coloured wine with a smoky, savoury nose. The initial flavour of sweet blackberries mellows to an earthy, herbal dryness. A lot of flavour and complexity for the price. Serve it with BBQ-ed ribs. That's Durbanville Hills Shiraz 2008 from South Africa. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($11.95, LCBO #22269)

Domaine de L'Arnesque Côte du Rhône 2009
Just released at Vintages is a wine from the Côte du Rhône called Domaine de L'Arnesque 2009. It's a blend of Grenache and Syrah that's well priced at $13.40 a bottle. The wine is deep ruby in colour with a nose of black raspberries and wild herbs. It's soft and full on the palate with cocoa powder tannins that give it a dry finish. It's a wine that works well for any red meat dish. That's Domaine de L'Arnesque Côte du Rhône 2009 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, Vintages #223487)
