Wine of the Week for June 5, 2006

Cave Spring Gamay Noir VQA 2003 - $12.95
Style: R1
Ontario: Niagara

The challenge was to find a red wine that would go with stuffed peppers and pork tenderloin. This spicy gamay turned out to be an inspired choice. Heady aromas include pepper, raspberry and sweet cherry. It’s quite crisp on the palate, with a firm acidity, pepper and cherry flavours, and a fine rib of tannin. Medium-plus body with excellent length. Given what you'd pay for a comparable beaujolais, they're practically giving this one away. (LCBO 228569)
