680 NEWS wine reviews – January 22–24, 2016 

Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling 2014
When it comes to white wines Riesling continues to be Ontario's strong suit. Newly listed at Vintages is Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling 2014. The black sheep reference is to the four-legged pruners who wander the Niagara vineyard. Very pale in colour, the wine has a lifted bouquet of lime and crushed stones. It's off-dry with lime and honey flavours, finishing on a fresh note of citrus acidity. It costs $16.95 at Vintages and works well with pork dishes or Chinese cuisine. That's Featherstone Black Sheep Riesling 2014 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($16.95, Vintages #80234)

Indomita Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The reason I keep coming back to Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon is because it's the best bang for the buck. Indomita Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 from the Maipo Valley is dense purple in colour with a herbal, blackcurrant bouquet riding on vanilla oak. It's surprisingly light on the palate for its 14% alcohol. Dry and full-flavoured, the vanillins from the oak show through the blackcurrant fruit, finishing firmly on a plummy note. It costs $15.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it with red meat dishes or mature had cheeses. That's Indomita Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 from Chile. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($15.95, Vintages #434191)
