680News wine reviews – January 23–25, 2015 

Henry of Pelham Baco Noir 2013
Baco Noir is a hybrid variety largely being phased out of Ontario vineyards, but Henry of Pelham makes Baco Noir perform like a noble variety. Their 2013 vintage, currently at the LCBO, is dense ruby-purple in colour, offering a bouquet of blackberries with a note of toasted herbs. Medium to full-bodied, it has a touch of sweetness enveloped in smoky, charred oak. It costs $14.95 and is the kind of knock-back wine to serve with hamburgers or pizza. That's Henry of Pelham Baco Noir 2013 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($14.95, LCBO #270926)

Joseph Cattin Gewurztraminer 2012
I don't know if there are lumberjacks in Alsace but their Gewurztraminer always reminds me of a lumberjack dousing himself in after-shave. It's a big strapping wine that announces itself on the nose the moment you pull the cork. The nose on the Joseph Cattin Gewurztraminer 2012, currently at Vintages outlets, is all rose petals and lychees. It's off-dry with a soft mouth-feel and sweetish flavours of rosewater and Turkish Delight. It costs $17.95 at Vintages. It's amazing on its own or matched with Thai dishes. That's Joseph Cattin Gewurztraminer 2012 from Alsace. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #224626)
