680News wine reviews – September 21–23, 2012 

Red Rock Winery Malbec Reserve 2010
I don't come across Malbec from California very often but there's an E. & J. Gallo wine at the LCBO called Red Rock Winery Malbec Reserve 2010. It's deep ruby in colour with a smoky, truffle, barnyard nose; the fruit is ripe and sweet with jammy blackberry and blackcurrant flavours, ending with a spicy, dark chocolate note. It's full on the palate with supple tannins. The price: $16.95. An ideal red for barbecued meats. That's Red Rock Winery Malbec Reserve 2010 from California. For Post City Magazines I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.95, LCBO #284315)

Château des Charmes Aligoté 2010
If you're looking for a change from Chardonnay try another Burgundian grape called Aligoté. Only this Aligoté is grown in on our back yard – at Château des Charmes in Niagara. Their 2010 Aligoté is a pale lemon colour with an earthy, apple and peach bouquet and a citrus note. The wine is crisply dry, full on the palate and mouth-filling. Just the job for seafood dishes. It costs $13.95 a bottle. That's Château des Charmes Aligoté 2010 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com ($13.95, LCBO #296848)
