680News wine reviews – November 9–11, 2012 

Château Lestruelle 2009
2009 was one of those Bordeaux vintages that comes along every 50 years. I'm always on the lookout for drinkable claret under $20. I wasn't expecting to find any given the quality of the year. But Château Lestruelle 2009 from the Médoc is worth your attention. For $18.95 you get a medium-bodied wine with that characteristic nose of cedar, red berries and a leafy note. The fruit is sweet and firmly structured with a tannic lift on the finish. Look for it at Vintages outlets and serve it with lamb. Because the day God created the Cabernet Sauvignon grape he also created sheep. That's Château Lestruelle 2009 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com.
($18.95, Vintages #295840)

Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2007
Come November my thoughts turn to port, the ideal drink of winter. The next best thing to vintage port is LBV – Late Bottled Vintage port, which you don't have to hang around for 15 to 20 years before you open it. Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2007 tastes of sweet mulberry, dried figs, milk chocolate and vanilla oak. It's rich and full on the palate, giving warmth to the body and solace to the soul. It costs $17.95 a bottle. Try it with blue cheese or chocolate desserts. That's Taylor Fladgate Late Bottled Vintage Port 2007 from Portugal. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, LCBO #46946)
