A Plethora of Ontario Wines (Ontario)
Tonight I had an Ontario wine tasting. I pulled out 8 new Ontario wines to sample for future reviews. I won't tell you about all of them, but I will say that the Peller 2007 Private Reserve series reds are pretty outstanding. Receiving top marks was the 2007 Meritage and the 2007 Cabernet Franc; the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Merlot were also very good. Look for reviews of these four wines in my newsletter and on my website. Usually after a tasting like this I pull out something from another region or country to have a glass of, but I have to admit I finished the Cab Franc, it was truly a wonderful wine, good job Lawrence (Lawrence Buhler winemaker at Peller Estates). Cheers.
