680News wine reviews – August 5–7, 2011 

Baglio di Pianetto Shymer Syrah/Merlot 2008
Sicily is producing some top-flight red wines these days at very affordable prices. Currently at Vintages is a wine called Baglio di Pianetto Shymer Syrah/Merlot 2008. It's deep ruby-purple in colour with an expressive bouquet of blackcurrants, toasty oak and herbs with a floral grace note. It's full and generous on the palate, well-structured with nicely integrated oak. Baglio di Pianetto Shymer Syrah/Merlot 2008 is a serious wine at a not so serious price: it costs $15.95 at Vintages. Just the wine for your barbecue nights. That's Baglio di Pianetto Shymer Syrah/Merlot 2008 from Sicily. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, Vintages #219501

Catena Zapata Alamos Torrontes 2010
Another terrific summer wine is Catena Zapata Alamos Torrontes 2010 from Argentina. The Torrontes grape is similar in style to a dry Muscat from Alsace. It has a delightful bouquet of carnations, orange and cardamom; it's medium-bodied with lychee and rose-water flavours. Great length and great value at $13.95. You'll find it at Vintages outlets. That's Catena Zapata Alamos Torrontes 2010 from Argentina. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, Vintages #81539)
