680News wine reviews – April 20–22, 2012 

Vineland Estates Chardonnay Musqué 2010
Chardonnay Musqué is an aromatic clone of Chardonnay, a variety that does very well in Ontario. Because of its fragrance it's usually not given any oak treatment to allow its apple blossom-like bouquet to be as pure as possible. A good example is Vineland Estates Chardonnay Musqué 2010, currently at Vintages and selling for $17.95. This medium-bodied wine has spicy flavours of apple, peah and lemon with a touch of sweetness on mid palate. Try it with a runny Camembert. That's Vineland Estates Chardonnay Musqué 2010 at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #996793)

Fabre Montmayou Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
If you're a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon you won't want to miss this wine from Argentina's Mendoza Valley: Fabre Montmayou Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is terrific value at $14.95 a bottle at Vintages outlets. Dense purple in colour, it has a nose of crushed blackcurrants. The fruit is sweet and the balance is perfect. At $14.95 you might want to cellar a few bottles because it will improve in a couple of years when the tannins soften. Try it with lamb chops. That's Fabre Montmayou Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 from Argentina at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, Vintages #261891)
