 WINES OF THE WEEK

More Wines of the Week  

  • Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc Estate
  • Vina Carmen Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon
 

Last week I attended a tasting in Toronto featuring 16 Chilean wineries. The overall quality of the wines was very good, especially in terms of price/value. For this week's Wines of the Week I've selected three that offer the best value. Be sure to check the vintages at the LCBO so you're trying the same year I did.

Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc Estate 2002
$10.95
Straw colour; grassy, passionfruit nose with some tropical fruit top notes; richly extracted, passionfruit and citrus flavours; clean, well balanced and lively with great length on the finish.
Food match: grilled trout, seafood salad

Vina Carmen Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
$15.95
Deeply coloured, opaque purple-ruby; vanilla, blackcurrant bouquet; well structured, full-bodied, minty black cherry, blackcurrant and chocolate flavours with a hint of tobacco leaf.
Food match: rack of lamb, duck breast

Cousino Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
$15.00
Deeply coloured; spicy, smoky, toasty nose with a ripe redcurrant bouquet; well structured, medium-bodied, minty, redcurrant flavour with a touch of tannin on the finish. Best in a year or two from now.
Food match: tomato-based pasta dishes; veal casserole.
