Jackson Triggs Cabernet/Merlot 2002 (Niagara Peninsula)
$29.95 (available at the winery, 905-468-4637, toll-free 866-589-4637, or at Wine Rack stores)
This is one of the best wines I've tried from the J-T portfolio, a Bordeaux-style red of elegance and charm.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (25%). Deep ruby colour; redcurrant, blackcurrant and cedar nose; medium-bodied, firm structure with sweet currant and plum fruit with a floral note; mellow tannins with a good finish. ****
Food match: rack of lamb, cheddar

Delaine Vineyard Pinot Noir 2002 (Niagara Peninsula)
(Price to follow – available at the winery, 905-468-4637, toll-free 866-589-4637, or at Wine Rack stores)
The second vintage of this wine shows more maturity. Medium ruby colour; leather and raspberry nose; dry cranberry, earthy plum and prune flavours. Good acidity. ****
Food match: salmon steak; duck breast

Hudelot-Noellat Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Murgers 2001 (Burgundy)
$74.26 (available only at www.wineonline.ca, by the case lot)
This is a superb Burgundy. Get a group together and share a case. Light ruby colour; smoky, struck flint, minerally raspberry nose; richly extracted fruit with flavours of raspberry and violets; very elegant; beautifully made with great balance and style. Needs time. *****
Food match: veal chop; grilled quail
