Le Roselle Ripasso Valpolicella Classico 2001 (Veneto)

A Valpolicella with lots of body and flavour. Purple-ruby colour; spicy, raisiny nose with a sweet note; medium-bodied with a rich sweet cherry and raisin flavour; well balanced. ****

Rioja Campo Crianza 2001 (Spain)
$13.95 (General list)
A well-priced mature red from Rioja. Ruby colour; sandalwood and strawberry nose; medium-bodied, dry, lean and sinewy but harmonious fruit, acid and oak. Drinking well now. ****

Not really the time for port yet, but this is so well priced it might be gone before the LCBO has time to send for more. Dense ruby colour; vanilla, chocolate and sweet blackberry nose; full-bodied, intense, sweet; carries well to the finish. ****
