Franschhoek Cellar Statue de Femme Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Pale in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice grassy notes along with some citrus. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity and the green grassy notes linger nicely in the mouth. This is a softer more gentle sauv blanc. I would give it an 88 or so. Sadly not in the LCBO. This is from Paaarl South Africa. we had it at Hot House Cafe during Summerlicious. It was reasonably priced at $9 a glass.

From the winery’s web site:
TASTING NOTES
Our Franschhoek Cellar Statue de Femme Sauvignon Blanc has tangy cool climate tropical and citrus centred aromas with a pure graceful core of gentle ripe fig, grapefruit and pineapple fruit balanced by a lively acidity that follows through to a frisky finish of pleasing length. A hint of Semillon adds breadth and fills the mid palate.

2012 Meridian Cab sauv

Dark in color with a nice red cherry nose. On the mid palate this is a fruit forward cab displays lots of nice red cherries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some soft tannins and acidity. Definitely a juicy fruit forward cab. I would give it an 88 or so. Very food friendly. Sadly not in the LCBO, but available from Treasury Wine Estates. I would guess around $20 a bottle. If your ever looking for who reps a winery in Ontario you can search for it on Drinks Ontario database. You can contact the distributor and buy the wine by the case for wines not in the LCBO.

2015 Ara Pathway Sauv Blanc

Sauv Blancs are best enjoyed why the fruits are vibrant and young. Ara Pathway has consistently been a very good Sauv Blanc for a number of years, it is a general list product so readily available. This is my first hit at the 2015. Pale in color with a nice grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice grassy notes to match the nose along with some pink grapefruit and some citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice lively fresh acidity. A very food friendly wine. We paired it with a bacon fettucine alfredro and it went well. I would give it an 88+

2014 Kacaba Jennifer’s Pinot Gris

Ok, quizzie time … what’s the difference between a red wine and a white wine (or Rose for that matter)? In the case of the Pinot Gris, and many others, the outside of the grape is red and the inside is white. So the difference is how long the crushed juice is left in contact with the skins of the grape. Skins provide color as well as depth and complexity. This wine was left in contact with the skins for 3 hours and the resulting wine is more like a rose in color. Crisp and dry on the nose. On the mid palate the wine has a nice refreshing crispness to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice lively acidity. This is a very food friendly wine. Perfect for the summer. We paired it with a BBQ sausage and it went well. I would give it an 88 or so. $17.95 at the winery.

From the Winery’s web site:
JENNIFERS PINOT GRIS 2014
Details
All fruit for this colourful wine was hand harvested at optimum ripeness. Then the fruit wine was permitted to cold soak for twelve hours to achieve its bronze / coper hue before undergoing a gently hole berry pressing. The juice was then slowly cool-fermented for approximately two plus weeks to retain fruit intensity and enhance complexity. To ensure this wine retain its acidity and crispness, malolactic fermentation was not performed.

Food Pairing
Delicious on its own or match with chicken, pork, spicy Asian food or succulent seafood dishes such as prawns and other shellfish.
Tasting Notes
A colourful wine of delicate copper pink hue. An elegant floral noise leads to a palate of soft flavours highlighting ripe juicy red fruits and pink grapefruit. A well-balanced fruit forward wine with refreshing acidity.

2014 Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre

Sancerre is a region in France where the white grape is 100% Sauv Blanc. No country is as legislated as France. Their laws are the tightest ranging all the way from controlling grape production all the way to labelling of the bottle and and everything in between. The highest level of certification in France is AOC. If the wines does not qualify for AOC (or not yet) they they are Vin de pays, table wine. This wine is AOC.

Pale in color with a lovely grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely rich edgy grassy notes. This can hold it’s own with a New Zealand sauv blanc. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice citrus notes along with some lively acidity. It’s nice and dry and crips. This is a very food friendly wine. I would give it an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
Henri Bourgeois Les Baronnes Sancerre — VINTAGES#: 542548

Bruna Maje Bianco Riviera Ligure di Ponente Pigato 2014

Italy is one of those places that have a positively dizzying array of unique grapes. A number of them are only grown in a very specific area of Italy. A number of them are never grown anywhere else. Interestingly enough, genetic testing is confirming that these are in fact unique grapes, rather than different names for the same grape. The Pigato grape is one of these unique grapes. A search of the LCBO does not even find one Pigato … We had this wine at Terroni’s, one of my favorite Italian restaurants. The food, service and wine list are all excellent. They bring in a number of unique wines in just for the restaurant. Pale in color with a slightly sweet almost honey suckle nose. At the very front of palate there is a brief hint of sweetness but that passes super quickly and you are left a crisp dry wine. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice herbacious notes along with a hint of greenness. The wine has some nice lively acidity. It’s a very food friendly wine. I would give it an 88 or so. The wine seems to be worth around $15 a bottle, at Terroni’s they charged a whopping $43 for a half liter, that’s quite the extortionate markup . Ouch. I honestly think this is EXACTLY what motivates restaurants to bring in wines not in the LCBO, so you have no idea how much they have marked them up by.

Two Sisters 20111 Eleventh Post mini review

Inky dark in color with a nice nose of dark fruits. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark fruit to match the nose. On the long finish this is another big wine from this new winery. There’s lots of firm tannins, some nice acidity, dryness and complexity. The dark fruits live on long in the mouth. I would give it an 89 or so. Another very nice wine from these folks. $39 a bottle at the winery. I can only imagine this is a very ageable wine. The winery’s web site says Now through 2015? I tasted it in 2016 and it’s still a big wine with lots of potential. I can’t wait to see future releases from this winery!

About the Wine
Named for a very special place in our vineyard, our Eleventh Post blend is a tribute to a moment in time. We had always known that this place was special and one perfect day while walking in our fields we were compelled to leave our personal mark on the Eleventh Post.

To my sister and I, it seemed appropriate to give our Eleventh Post blend a name that symbolized the beginning of our family history in Niagara.
– Angela Marotta, Proprietor

Tasting Notes
Made from premium fruit cropped for low yields, Eleventh Post is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot. This is a wine with exquisite elegance and balance.

The individual varietals for this wine were harvested at optimal ripeness and barrel-aged separately in a combination of French and American oak before assemblage.

The result is a wine with lovely aromas of cocoa, vanilla bean and toast oak. Flavours of cassis, black cherries, blueberries arrive early on the palate and are followed by hints of strawberries. Toasty oak, sweet chai spice and cardamom linger on the finish; silky tannins round out the mouthfeel.

Best Enjoyed
Now through 2015 or longer.

Another one from the general list. Pale in color with a nice grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely green tartness to match the nose along with some nice pink grapefruit notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lively acidity. It has a very nice mouth grip lingering for a bit. Another very food friendly Sauv blanc, albeit a bolder one than some. I would give it an 88 or so, which for the price is a good deal!

2005 Château Beauregard

This is a merlot/Cab franc blend. It’s dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some deep rich fruit, plum is coming through (from the merlot) as well as some nice dark berries (from the franc). This wine has held up very well. On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins along with some nice pepper and spice. A beautiful wine. I would give it an 89-90. We paired it with fillet mignon and it went splendidly and made the meal! Yumm. A birthday gift from my best bud Jason! Thanks Bro! It’s been in my cellar for a number of years, is not currently in the LCBO, but was worth $39.95.

Pale in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice grassy notes along with some nice citrus.

2008 Clos Le Jordanne Pinot Noir Village Reserve

I’ve had this one in the cellar for a while now. Interestingly enough I had it as a best before 2012 🙂 Ooops. Lovely garnet in color with a nice nose of soft red berries. On the mid palate the wine is still showing well with some nice gentle red fruits, raspberry and the like along with the usual rustic suspects. On the medium length finish there are some fine tannins and acidity. At this point this is a smooth elegant food friendly pinot. We paired it with bbq salmon and it went very well. I would give it an 88-89. I paid $25. A very varietal wine that has held it’s own for a very long time!

Two Sisters 2012 Merlot mini review

I had the pleasure of attending the iYellow Winetario event where Ontario Wine Award winners showed up with some of their best wines. The event was an awesome showcase of some incredible Ontario wines. This wine was by far one of the most distinctive, it really did stand out.

Two Sisters was planted in 2007 in Niagara on the Lake and their first vintage was 2010. For such a young winery I am shocked how far they have come. This wine is dark in color with a lovely nose dark berries and hint of plum. On the mid palate there’s dark berries to match the nose along with a hint of plum, but where this wine lives is in the finish. This is a big bruiser of a wine, with lots of nice chocolate, firm tannins and some nice acidity. The alcohol is well under control. The wine has some lovely dryness and complexity that builds in the mouth as it coats the palate with the black fruit notes. Given the tannins I would say this wine has some very nice ageing potential. Wow, for such a young winery an excellent wine. And lot bigger than I am use to from Niagara on the lake. Yum. I would give it an 88-89 or so. $48 a bottle at the winery!

The wine was produced with a full berry ferment, and they captured and recycled the carbon dioxide as it came off the wine

From the weinery’s web site:
About the Wine
2012 was another incredible growing season in Niagara, giving us fruit at optimal ripeness. Premium farming and attention to detail in the winery ensure that our 2012 Merlot is the expression of our vineyard site.

Tasting Notes
This Merlot is a beautiful garnet colour, core to rim. Medium-bodied and elegantly structured, if offers mouth-coating, velvety tannins, which are certain to give this wine longevity if you have the willpower to resist drinking it for the next year or two.

The palate is rich and juicy with the flavours of dark red/black fruits and sweet oak up front. On the mid-palate, blackberries take over before a long, textured finish.

Best Enjoyed
This wine is drinking beautifully right now and will continue to evolve and change through 2023. It can benefit from decanting.

Ryder Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Dark in color with a mild dark berry nose. On the mid palate this is a rich juicy dark berry mid palate to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some firm tannins and acidity. It’s a bit young. I would give it an 88 or so. We paired it with a striploin, and it went well. A friend at work Semion pointed this one out to mr … Thanks!

From the LCBO web site:

Le Grand Noir 2014 Chardonnay

I had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of the Wine Academy, Toronto’s latest offering for storing your wine and is also a social club. The facility has an onsite kitchen and entertaining space as well!

This wine was one of the ones served. Pale in color with a nice nose of apple/pear. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice apple/pear to go along with the nose along with some nice mild vanilla notes along with some nice acidity and dryness. It’s a softer gentler chard and would be very food friendly. If you like your chards with lots of oak, or creamyness, then this isn’t the wine for you. I would give it an 88 or so. I have to say I didn’t notice anything on the nose from the Viognier. Not in the LCBO, looks like around $17 CDN. I couldn’t find the current rep.

Elephant Hill Pinot Noir 2014 Mini review

Another one from the New Zealand wine festival. I’ve had this one before and enjoyed it. Garnet in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate this wine displays some nice varietal soft red berries and rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some soft tannins and acidity. If you like your Pinots then this is a softer, gentler, varietal one, very food friendly!

From the LCBO web site (for a different year)
Elephant Hill Pinot Noir 2013 — VINTAGES#: 309583
STYLE – Medium-bodied & Fruity
The aromas here are quite inviting, suggesting ripe, dark fruit and rich vanilla. Bright acidity lifts things an octave or two on the palate, with lovely red fruit flavours taking the lead. There’s very nice balance to the wine, and good purity. Nicely done. (VINTAGES panel, Oct. 2014) $24.95

Colio estates Bricklayers Cache Small Lot Syrah mini review

Inky dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild dark fruits, but where this wine lives is in the finish where it displays some strong coffee notes. There some nice dryness and complexity from the firm tannins and acidity. I would give this wine an 88 or so. Not available at the LCBO but $29.95 from the winery. The wine is made from 100% Syrah and 100% Lake Erie fruit. It saw 20 months in older French and American Oak. They only made 330 cases of this wine.

Verdejo is the white grape in the Rueda region of Spain. I recently attended an event hosted by the Spanish Wine Society in Toronto focused on this varietal. This was one of the stars of the night. Pale in color with mild nose. On the mid palate the wine is crisp and dry. There are some nice green flavors, and herbaceous notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice green tartness and acidity. A very food friendly wine. I would give it an 88 or so. Sadly, not yet in the LCBO.

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some mild plum notes backed almost immediately by some firm tannins and acidity. The wine is medium in length.

Pale in color with a mild grassy nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice grassy and citrus flavors coming through. On the medium length finish the citrus lives on nicely in the mouth along with some nice lively acidity and some pink grapefruit. I would give it an 88 or so, which for the price is a bargain.

Heitlinger Baden 2013 Pinot Noir

Last year I attended the German consulate’s wine event and was thrilled to discover some German Pinot Noirs. Locally they are referred to as Spatburgunder. This is one of those, but from this years event. Garnet in color with a lovely varietal rustic nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice rustic notes to match the nose along with some soft red berries. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice acidity and dryness. A very nice pinot indeed and it would be very food friendly. Sadly not in the LCBO yet, $21 a bottle.
