Farmhouse California Red
California, USA
LCBO#: 15751, $16.80 SHOP »»
Farmhouse Wines are part of the Cline portfolio of wines from Sonoma, California. The winemaker uses blending to highlight the best fruit and does not over-oak the wines. A smooth blend of Zinfandel, Shiraz and Carignan, with cedar, chocolate, cassis and toast notes. Serve with charcuterie, appetizers or a cheese board.

Longford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
California, USA
VINTAGES#: 20725, $18.95 SHOP »»
In Monterey County, foggy mornings, plentiful sunshine and a long growing season allow for the development of fruit with great ripeness and intensity. This Cabernet gracefully shows off the elegance and generous, bright fruit tones for which the area is so loved. A wine that will enhance mid-week dining but has the substance and character for a more formal evening featuring grilled lamb.

Score: 94 Pts. - James Suckling,, January 2021.
