Mouton-Cadet 2002 (Bordeaux)
$13.40 (general release)
The new blend of this old workhorse is a great improvement over past vintages. Heavier on Merlot and vinified more in New World style to highlight the fruit. Ruby colour with a nose of cedar and spicy blueberry and currants; medium-bodied, fruit-driven with supple tannins. ***˝
Food match: lamb cutlets, cheddar cheese

Cave Spring Cabernet/Merlot Reserve 2002 (Ontario)
$29.95 (from the winery or through www.winerytohome.com)
Merlot 45%, Cabernet Sauvignon 35%, Cabernet Franc 20%. Dense ruby colour; cedar, vanilla and blackcurrant nose, nicely integrated; medium-bodied, firm structure, well extracted blackcurrant and cranberry flavours. Well made. ****
Food match: duck breast, beef tenderloin

Henry of Pelham Barrel-Fermented Chardonnay 2003 (Ontario)
$19.95 (from the winery or through www.winerytohome.com)
The new vintage of this reliable chardonnay is one of the best I've tasted. Straw colour; smoky, toasty, barnyard nose with lively flavours of oranges and apples; well made, spicy citrus, nut and apple taste in the mid palate. Will reward the patient – hold for a year to eighteen months. ****˝
Food match: grilled salmon, seared tuna
