WHAT: Le Clos Jordanne Village Reserve Pinot Noir 2006 (red) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Niagara Peninsula
WHY: This acclaimed local usually lasts about three hours on the shelf when released through the LCBO, but you can always try their website, provided you're thirsty enough for a six-pack. Le Clos's entry-level Pinot shows a lot of dignified conviviality. Warm, smooth, gentle but with depth: the sort of wine you'd like to marry.
PRICE: 750 ml/$30
