680News wine reviews – December 12–14, 2014 

Flat Rock Pinot Noir 2012
Jay Johnston, the winemaker at Flat Rock Cellars in Niagara, has a way with Pinot Noir. His 2012 Pinot – a Vintages Essential product – is ruby coloured with an earthy, raspberry nose and a light note of violets. It's medium-bodied, dry, with raspberry and cherry flavours; nicely balanced and light on the palate. It costs $19.95 a bottle. Great with duck breast or lamb cutlets. That's Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir 2012 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler for 680 News and 680News.com. ($19.95, Vintages # 1545)

Bodega Volcanes de Chile Tectonica Red 2011
I was in Chile for the 1985 earthquake, 8 on the Richter scale, so this recommendation is an earth-moving one for me. Bodega Volcanes de Chile Tectonica Red 2011 from the Central Valley is a blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. Dense purple in colour, it offers a nose of blackcurrant and vanilla. It's a beautifully made wine, elegant, fresh and juicy with spicy black fruit flavours. It costs $17.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with steak or lamb. That's Bodega Volcanes de Chile Tectonica Red 2011. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler for 680 News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages # 389668)
