Wine to Look for at the LCBO This Weekend! - COMING TO VINTAGES! Click on the bottle image or product name below for LCBO stores near you.

TintoNegro Finca La Escuela La Piedra Malbec 2016

TintoNegro Finca La Escuela La Piedra Malbec 2016 – Wine of the Month - $24.95
LCBO #10443

Piedra means “Rock” in Spanish and it refers to the patch of rocky, limestone driven soil in the middle of the vineyard.  These white stone soils produce Malbec with black fruit flavors and salty minerality.

95 Pts – Tim Atkin, Argentina Special Report 2018

“This wonderful Malbec comes from a stony, limestone-influenced block and was fermented with 50% whole bunches in 2016 because of its riper stems.  Grippy, saline and refreshing, with some white pepper spice, succulent berry fruit and a lovely bite of acidity. 2020-28.”

J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 1500ml - $47.95
LCBO #16915

“The 2016 J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and dense to the rim of the glass.  Layered aromas of black currant, blueberry and cherry are accentuated by an authentic barrel bouquet of hazelnut, cocoa powder, and dark roasted coffee.  High-toned red berry fruit strikes the fore-palate, and follows with bright acidity and a full structure that is both dense and soft at once.” — Steve Peck, red winemaker.

95 Pts & Gold – California State Fair, April 10, 2018

Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 - $20.95 
LCBO #260919

Deep red colour.  This wine has vibrant aromas of black fruit, tobacco and pepper with spicy-floral hints.  It has an intense and well balanced acidity.  The oak is beautifully integrated with elegant and fine grained tannins.  A subtle minerality provides freshness and good length. 

Food Pairing: Beef, pork, lamb, quail and other game birds. Also it pairs well with cream-based sauces.

93 Pts – James Suckling, March 27, 2019

“Pretty cabernet with blackcurrant and green-tea aromas and flavors.  Medium body. Hazelnut, dried-flower and cedar undertones.  Fine finish.  Racy.  Drink or hold.”

Segura Viudas Heredad Reserva Cava

Segura Viudas Heredad Reserva Cava - $32.95 
LCBO #558825

Straw yellow in colour, with a small, fine, plentiful mousse.  The opening aromas are of the ageing on lees, slightly smokey, with touches of biscuit or bread, which are followed by hints of honey, fruit and flower petals.  The palate is excellent, fruity and full of flavour, with dried fruits from the lees ageing, but very elegant, giving the drinker a delightful sense of abundance.

92 Pts – Natalie MacLean, June 9, 2018

“Here's your sparkling wine for the summer (and year round)!  Terrific value in this well-made, toasty and refreshing bubbly from Spain that's a third of the price of Champagne.  Segura is one of the most respected producers of Cava, the Spanish name for sparkling wine.  Terrific earthy aromas mingle with toasted almond and some green apple.  Great aperitif or try it with roast turkey, fried chicken, or yes, even potato chips.  Elegant, layered, refreshing.”


Grevepesa Clemente VII Trio - Wood Gift Box - $82.95 
LCBO #577908

Chianti Classico Riserva 2015

Intense ruby red coloured wine with a flavour marked by hints of wild berries well integrated with a note of spices and vanilla.  The taste is powerful, warm, full bodied, balanced and harmonious with a persistent aftertaste.

94 Pts – James Suckling, June 16, 2019

“Another beautiful Chianti Classico from the 2015 vintage.  This one shows just the right combination of dark plums and cherries with an overlay of hazelnuts, vanilla and baking spices.  The deft palate carves out a real sense of agility, thanks to the combination of structured tannins and forthright acidity.  Drink in 2021.”

Chianti Classico 2016

Intense ruby red coloured wine with a strong wild berry flavour, well integrated with a hint of spices and toasted vanilla.  The taste profile is a perfect harmony with sweet tannins that make it velvety and well balanced.

91 Pts – James Suckling, September 11, 2018

“A gorgeous red showing sliced strawberries, dark plums and crushed walnuts.  Medium to full body, juicy and fine young tannins and a bright finish.  Drink now or hold.”

Settimo Rosso Toscana 2015

Bright, intense, ruby red coloured Supertuscan wine with a rich and sophisticated bouquet.  Perfect balance between grape tannins and wood tannins that make it tasty, full bodied, with a persistent aftertaste. Noble wine.

91 Pts – James Suckling, September 11, 2018

“Aromas of dried berries and lemons with hints of spices following through to a medium body.  Licorice and berry flavours, too.  A clean and fresh finish.  A beauty now.  Drink and enjoy.“

Domaine de la Bazillere Muscadet Sevre et Maine sur Lie 2018 - $13.95
