Derek's Picks


Play Applause  Canada

Tasting Notes: This bold wine with breakbeats of berries, heavy bass lines of dark chocolate and high notes of tobacco is sure to get a standing ovation. An experienced trio of Cab Sav, Merlot and Cab Franc deliver on the structure, colour and taste of a classic bordeaux style blend. Pair with strong cheeses, beef short ribs, meatballs in hearty tomato sauce, Portabello mushroom burgers, and rare sirloin steak.

Price: $19.99

Veuve du Vernay Brut Rose  France

Tasting Notes: Nice rose color with a persisitent mousse followed by numerous fine bubbles. On the nose there’s red fruit scents combined with citrus fruit aromas. Well-balanced and fleshy, this beautiful rose shows on the palate the same fruity flavors as the nose. Some pungent notes on the finish give it a pleasant freshness. It's a good candidate to pair with a fruit dessert or to serve as an apéritif.

Price: $18.99

Game Of Thrones Chardonnay  USA

Tasting Notes: This robust Californian white wine is a blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Riesling from the Central Coast region. The wine underwent a partial malolactic and barrel fermentation. Aromas of toasty oak and golden apples. Pair with roast chicken and family entanglements. As the back label reads for this marketing-driven wine branded with the HBO series "Game of Thrones": From the arid climate of Dorne to the lush vineyards of The Reach, the topography of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is as diverse as the wine we produce. Against the backdrop of the ever evolving struggle for the Iron Throne and amidst the howling winds of winter, nobles raise their glasses and toast to luck in the wars to come. This was priced at $30.99 but with an amazing discount from the company representing it here in Alberta we can offer it at $15.99. Wow!

Price: $$15.99

Gran Emotivo Rosso  Italy

Tasting Notes: This is an everyday kind of wine with a blend of merlot and corvina grapes. Flavours of ripe fruits, such as plums and raisins with pleasant notes of spices and vanilla. Rich and bold palate with very ripe, red fruit flavours. A solid structure and beautiful balance between soft tannins and lifted acidity. This is a great wine for roasts, red meats and hard cheeses. This wine will improve over the next four years with further bottle ageing.

Price: $21.99

Quevedo Rose Port  Portugal

Tasting Notes: To make this delicious rose port grapes are crushed, and within a few hours, the juice is decanted to limit contact with the skin to avoid too much color extraction; it fermented at a cold temperature for 10 days. The grapes used are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão. Quevedo's pink port shows a modest but fresh - floral nose. On the palate, spicy, fresh , integrated notes and round finish. A pleasure to drink.

Price: $24.99
