I am not an expert, just a discerning wine lover or amateur de vin (as the French say), but everyone has a different palate, likes and dislikes so it must be understood that any of my recommendations are personal. I just hope that you find them useful or at the very least - interesting. I also hope you enjoy my photos. It is more fun sharing then keeping them backed up on a hard drive.

More from the vault...

Good value - nicely balanced medium+ bodied wine, fall-winter BBQ perhaps?

Ortas Tradition Rasteau (Cotes du Rhone) 2008 (D) $15.00
Spicy, wild herbs, blackberries, raspberries - warming @ 14%



Excellent value - although this Bordeaux-style blend is not VQA it is very tasty and very well-priced.

Eastdell (Beamsville, On) 2007 Cabernet Merlot (0) $12.95
Dark berry fruits with subtle vanilla and oak spice
