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.

Super Syrah deal from Washington State and more Taste Ontario

Smokey, earthy, complex wine - black cherries with a hint of pepper - nice balance of tannins and acid. At this price a wonderful accompaniment with dinner, any day of the week - hard cheeses, lamb, pasta dishes.

WASHINGTON HILLS - 2006 SYRAH - WA - $15.00*



More From Taste Ontario - this week value for money - Chardonnay

A well integrated, nuanced wine - apple compote and lemon - lingering finish.

  1. The owners of this vineyard are my old bosses from AA. Did you know that?
