Wakefield Wines Jaraman Shiraz 2017
$24.95 | 377036

The wine has a deep crimson red colour with a vibrant purple hue to the edges. There are lifted aromas of dark berry, dark cherry fruit, plums and spicy overtones of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove aromas. This is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of ripe cherry, plum and blackberry fruit, with attractive oak characters of coffee and chocolate.

“Highly perfumed aromas of roses and violets introduce this fabulous shiraz. An oxymoron that it’s both delicate and powerful, but it is. It’s also medium-full bodied and silky smooth on the palate with fruit-forward flavours of sweet ripe bramble berry melding perfectly with crunchy pie cherry adorned with dark chocolate, grilled savory herbs and espresso roast gliding easily over the palate infusing the finish and aftertaste. It’s all underpinned with a dollop of ripe tannin adding structure and interest. Drink now after a two-hour aeration/decant on its own or alongside this fabulous recipe from the late, great James Beard for marinated filet of beef.” – 96 Pts & Exceptional – Vic Harradine,, September 13, 2020

Susana Balbo BenMarco Expresivo 2018
$39.95 | LCBO# 263517

Gualtallary is recognized for its calcareous alluvial soils. As a result, BenMarco Expresivo is a lineal, fresh wine, with aromas of blackberries and violets. It stands out for its mineral notes, balanced natural acidity and firm tannins. Great aging potential 85% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc
Food pairing: Red meats, roasted pork tenderloin, hard cheeses and most cream-based sauces.

“A beautiful, creamy red with blackberry and cherry aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Polished, caressing tannins. Persistent finish. Always dialed-in. Drink or hold.” 95 Pts – James Suckling, April 2, 2020

Bodegas LAN Gran Reserva 2011
$34.95 | LCBO# 928622

Garnet with ruby hues. Aromas of ripe red fruits combined with spicy notes from the aging in oak (Vanilla, cinnamon, fennel, liquorice root) and tertiary aromas (Leather, cigar box…) from its prolonged bottle aging. Full bodied and round, its mouthfeel is elegant and very well balanced. 96% Tempranillo, 4% Mazuelo & Graciano

Food pairing: roasted meats, lamb, hearty stews and cured cheeses.

“This is an impressive Gran Reserva. It opens with cinnamon, five spice, iodine, vanilla, resin, elderberries, cherry liqueur, blackberries and black raspberries. The palate is plush, full-bodied and very concentrated, but there’s enough depth of field to the tannins to take on the immense, dark-fruit flavors. Some cutting acidity drives this home. Drink in 2024.” 94 Pts – James Suckling, July 26, 2019

Donatien Bahuaud Vouvray Les Grands Mortiers 2018
$22.95 | LCBO# 140889

Pale yellow colour with green hues. Fresh fruit apple, peach. Well-structured wine, nice acid frame typical of the chalky terroir of Vouvray. 100% Chenin Blanc.

Food pairing: Fruit salads, spicy cuisine, Thai specialities.

“A great value off-dry, ultra-balanced and mouth filling Vouvray, zesty with fresh pear, white stone fruit, mouth-watering citrus and mineral flavours on the palate. So good!” 90 Pts – Natalie MacLean, November 9, 2019
