680News wine reviews – April 3–5, 2015 

Château Vincens Origine Cahors 2011
The Cahors region in South West France is famous for its dense, dark wines made from Malbec with either Tannat or Merlot blended in. Château Vincens Origine Cahors 2011, newly released at Vintages, has 10% Merlot in the blend. Deep ruby-black in colour, it has a minty, spicy nose of plums. On the palate it's full-bodied with a dry, earthy, dark chocolate flavour ending on a tannic note. A wine that would repay five years of cellaring. It costs $17.95 a bottle at Vintages. Serve it with red meat dishes. That's Château Vincens Origine Cahors 2011 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #343400)

Fontanafredda Barolo 2010
If you google "King of Wines" it will take you to Wikipedia's entry for Barolo – the great Piemonte wine made exclusively from the Nebbiolo grape. On the LCBO's general list is Fontanafredda Barolo 2010 that sells for $30 a bottle. This is a great dinner party wine. Ruby-coloured with a nose of cherries and licorice with wood spice, it's medium-bodied, dry and savoury with cherry and blackcurrant flavours. Match it with osso buco or fresh parmesan. That's Fontanafredda Barolo 2010 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($30.00, LCBO #20214)
