SEMI-EXPENSIVE, DAMN GOOD LOCAL REDS!
Here’s a few local reds that are worth the splurge. Something to consider for the Holidays, or gift-giving. All at Vintages.
Henry’s Big Baco . . . shades of a Rhone Red, but uniquely local. Warmth, and a little mystery. For fans of adventure.
HENRY OF PELHAM 12 Baco Noir Reserve, VQA Ontario 461699 Vintages $24.95
Local Merlot . . . solid, almost rich and pretty too. Very Merlot. Very dinner party.
FEATHERSTONE 12 Merlot ‘Red Tail’, VQA Twenty Mile Bench 131540 Vintages $19.95
For the ‘French’ palate . . . Lailey has crafted an intriguing, peppery, Syrah that could easily be something special from the North Rhone.
LAILEY 12 Syrah, VQA Niagara 184523 Vintages $27.20
Cabernet Franc . . . the hallmark dusty dry, savoury characteristics that make Franc so different from today’s popular reds. A little earthy richness adds to the appeal. Another ‘French’ experience.
REDSTONE 10 Reserve Cabernet Franc, (Tawse Winery), VQA Lincoln Lakeshore 381244 Vintages $29.95
