Pelee Island ‘Vinedresser’ Cabernet Sauvignon – Petit Verdot 2014
VQA Ontario $19.95 13.0% alcohol
This 85% Cabernet Sauvignon / 15% Petit Verdot red blend rips from the glass with peppery spice and grilled herbs drenched in fresh red berry fruit aromas. It dazzles the palate with a firm and balanced wash of tang-laced red currant and pie cherry with wisps of kirsch liqueur and blueberry appearing on the dry aftertaste. Medium-plus bodied and nicely textured, it benefits from a two-hour decant served alongside grilled beef tenderloin. (Vic Harradine)

Rosehall Run ‘Hungry Point - Unoaked’ Chardonnay’ 2015

VQA Prince Edward County $19.95 13.0% alcohol
This value-laden, dry-farmed Chardonnay saw not a splinter of oak. It showcases creamy-smooth mouth feel and gorgeous fruit flavour that’s pure and persistent from cork pop to last drop. Aromas of orchard fruit—peach, pear and apple—and floral notes morph into fresh lively flavour with crisp green apple balanced with white nectarine, yellow plum and flinty/mineral notes. Its medium weight with gorgeous texture and lip-smacking aftertaste. (Vic Harradine)
