680News wine reviews – January 27–29, 2012 

Sister's Run Shiraz 2008
One of the best values in Vintages' January 21st release is a rich red wine from Australia's Barossa Valley called Sister's Run Shiraz 2008. It's dense purple-black in colour with a fruitcake nose tinged with sweet herbs. It's full-bodied and dry with a fruity, blackberry flavour and very classy for its $15.95 price tag. Try it with roast lamb or a pork chop. That's Sister's Run Shiraz 2008 from Australia, available at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, Vintages #222018)

Château La Croix de Queynac 2009
Claret is what the British call red Bordeaux – a wine generally blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. And here's a tasty claret at an even tastier price. Château La Croix de Queynac 2009 is dense ruby in colour with a nose of cedar and sweet red berry fruit; it's medium-bodied, nicely balanced, with a dry currant and blackberry flavours. It costs $14.95 at Vintages. Match it with lamb stew. That's Château La Croix de Queynac 2009 from Bordeaux. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #138636)
