Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: Fabre Montmayou Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009
By Tony Aspler
If you’re a fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, you won’t want to miss this wine from Argentina’s Mendoza Valley. Dense purple in colour, it has a nose of crushed blackcurrants. The fruit is sweet and the balance is perfect. As it retails for just under $15, you might want to cellar a few bottles because this wine will improve in a couple of years when the tannins soften.
Food match: lamb chops, veal parmigiano.
$14.95. LCBO Vintages #261891
