A weekly look at what’s on LCBO shelves
WHAT: Casa Lapostolle Merlot 2008 (red) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Rapel Valley, Chile
WHY: They’re turning up the heat because it’s getting Chile in Vintages this weekend. Amidst the flood of Chilean wines hitting the shelves, this is a standout. To say it’s a crowd-pleaser understates the wine’s quality. Given its deft, delicious balance of flavours and textures, it will quickly disappear at your next dinner party.
PRICE: 750 ml/$16.95
AVAILABILITY: At most Vintages outlets as of May 6 (product #405712)
