680News wine reviews – April 6–8, 2012 

La Posta Estela Armando Vineyard Bonarda 2009
You may not be familiar with a grape named Bonarda; originally from the Italian region of Piemonte, it makes some very interesting wines in Argentina. Just released at Vintages is La Posta Estela Armando Vineyard Bonarda 2009. It's dense purple in colour with a bouquet of spicy black fruits. Spicy plum, blackberry and dark chocolate flavours erupt on the full-bodied palate. It costs $14.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with red meat dishes. That's La Posta Estela Armando Vineyard Bonarda 2009 from Argentina. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #261586)

Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2011
Rosé production is a no-brainer for Ontario, where our growing season doesn't always allow red grape varieties to ripen. Most wineries will bleed off a portion of juice during fermentation to concentrate colour and flavour in their red wine. What they bleed off after 24 hours or so of skin contact is a pink wine. One of the best is Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2011. It has soft, fruity dry redcurrant and strawberry flavours with a firm finish. It costs $15.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with roast chicken. That's Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2011 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com.($15.95, Vintages #172643)
