My favorite Red and White from the LCBO shelves

Red Wines – drink on a Friday night or bring to a party but never hesitate to open one of these wines if your spouse says “Is there something tasty to drink tonight?” 

  1. Eastdell Black Cab 2007 – Cabernet Franc, Baco Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon from Niagara
    LCBO 609875  | Price: $ 12.95 – you could also try the red cab from Eastdell but the Baco Noir is a grape that is one of Ontario’s best.
  2. Malivoire Red 2008 – Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Gamay  from Niagara LCBO 141523  | Price: $ 14.95 – this wine flew off the shelf at Red Brick Café and not just because of the cute ladybug on the bottle. I will write about Malivoire shortly – it’s a very cool winery
  3. Jackson Triggs Proprietors’ Reserve Cabernet Franc / Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 LCBO 560680 | Price: $ 12.95 – because I love Ontario’s Cab Franc
  4. Long Flat Cabernet Shiraz 2008 LCBO 212373 | Price: $ 10.95 – my house wine for the past year

White Wines – we don’t usually drink white but whenever we drink these wines we ask ourselves “Why don’t we drink more white wine?”

  1. Inniskillin Riesling 2008 LCBO 83790 | Price: $ 12.45 – a great Ontario winery. Riesling is the most versatile grape in the world. This one is dry and crisp like the apples at the farmers market.
  2. La Vieille Ferme 2008 LCBO 298505| Price: $ 11.45 – a nice mix of several Provencal grapes. From the Cotes du Luberon. Drinking it reminds me of my favorite BBC series A Year in Provence
