Wine of the Week for April 12, 2010

Cusumano Syrah 2008 - $9.95
Style: R2

Italy: Sicily
Not A native grape, but an excellent result. The nose offers up subtle dark berries, with nuances of caramel and smoke. Quite juicy with soft tannins, showing a hint of dark chocolate atop black raspberry. Very good body and length and great for the price. Try with Tandoori chicken, BBQ wings, or beef teriyaki. (LCBO 145490)

Rutini Trumpeter Malbec 2007 -$12.95
Style: R2

Argentina: Mendoza
The LCBO  has rolled out a number of yummy Malbec-based wines in the past few weeks. Here’s one to get started. Look for aromas of dried cherry, prune, barnyard and dark chocolate. Rich and juicy, with a cool acidity, soft tannins, blueberry, black berry and dried fruit flavours. Very good body and length. Awesome and age worthy 2-4 years or open now to serve with steak and kidney pie, cabbage rolls or hard cheeses.. (LCBO 139063)
