Thomas & Vaughan Cabernet Franc Estate Reserve 2000 (Ontario)
$26.95 (winery only – 905-563-7737)
One of the most interesting Ontario Cabernet Franc I've tasted in some time. Medium ruby colour; a nose of cedar, oak and red berry but without the off-putting green pepper note in many of these wines. Well extracted fruit, harmonious, with a soft mid-palate of redcurrants and pencil lead; good length. ****
Food match: roast beef; duck

Yellow Tail Merlot 2004 (Australia)
$11.45 (general list – #625350)
This is the Krispy Kreme of red wines. Ruby colour; spicy plum with a touch of minerality on the nose; medium-bodied, sweet jammy fruit; not much Merlot character but soft and gulpable. The perfect red wine for people who say they don't like red wine. ***
Food match: lightly curried dishes; baked ham

Concha Y Toro Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 (Chile)
$11.10 (general release)
Consistently one of the best buys at the LCBO. Deep ruby colour; defined blackcurrant, black olive and coffee bean nose; medium-full-bodied with a dry, savoury flavour, firmly structured and well balanced. ****
Food match: leg of lamb; veal chop
