Bonterra's 'The McNab' is pretty good if you haven't had the opportunity to try it.Nope. But considering it's labeled as organic I don't hold much hope for it. 99% of the time I'm disappointed in organic and biodynamic wines as I've already stated in this thread.

Not surprised that got your attention! Have you stocked up yet?mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
While I haven't had that specific bottle, I've yet to be impressed by any vintage of any label coming out of that winery so I'll look in other areas.Bonterra's 'The McNab' is pretty good if you haven't had the opportunity to try it.
Yup. It's actually one of the Vintages "classics" or whatever they call those. Quite reliable.Anyone familiar with J. Lohr wines? I was at Ciao Wine Bar and saw a reco for their Cab Sav on Foursquare. It was a 2006. I was impressed, but never really dived into California wines before.
I did the Iniskillin wine club thing. It's really nice, you get some decent wines, sometimes even ice wine that's over the value. They also provide little cards for recipes that would go great with that specific wine.While in Niagara-on-the-Lake, last week - i discovered a new wine.
It might just have become my new favorite Red. My previous go-to reserve for girlled meats was Perrin & Fils' Chateau-Neuf-du-Pape.
however, after trying 30 Bench's 2008 Reserve Merlot .... i am now simply blown away.
We took home a bottle for $27 . This bottle isn't available at the LCBO, and only at their private store. Anybody who has the means to, SHOULD try this red.

I think we're going to sign up to the Peller Estates wine club too. For $40 a month, they send two two bottles of wine a month. Your choice of red, white or combo. It's delivered to your door, shipping included. All wines are select wines unavailable a tthe LCBO.
