What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Red red wine, stay close to me! These delish red blends will have you crooning like UB40. But seriously though, everyone knows that the best way to stay warm in winter is by drinking red wine.
J. Lohr Los Osos Merlot
Tasting Note: Named for the Merlot-loving volcanic ash and andesite (a volcanic rock) of the vineyard, this remarkable value wine gains additional complexity and depth from the Malbec included in the blend. A rich, approachable and crowd-pleasing wine with smoky dark fruit wrapped in velvety tannins. Perfect for grilled lamb via LCBO.com

Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Tasting Note: The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintner’s Reserve delivers serious quality for the money. Dark cherry, smoke, tobacco, leather and licorice are pushed forward in this super expressive, budget-friendly Cabernet. Drink Date: 2017-2020. Score – 88. (Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, March 2017)

Meiomi Pinot Noir
Tasting Note: A decadent and popular take on Pinot Noir. Loaded with chocolate, dark cherries and berries, it’s a generous wine with soft tannins. Enjoy tonight with baby back ribs, grilled salmon or rib-eye steaks.
