The wines of Toro, Spain are generally bold and structured with masculine grip, this one is no exception.

Full and structured on the palate with dark savoury concentrated flavours and delicate sweetness on the finish.

4. Gardet Cuvée Saint Flavy Tradition Brut Champagne
VINTAGES#: 924654  SHOP 
A solid, balanced champagne at a reasonable price, simple but authentically toasty, with lively citrus and brioche-yeast flavours. A delicate and refined style, aiming for finesse rather than sheer power. Score: 90. (John Szabo, MS,, July 2016)
5. E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône
VINTAGES#: 259721  SHOP 
A fine intro to the wines of France's revered Rhône region. A classic blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre grapes, with flavours of plum, black raspberry and woodsmoke. A robust red to serve with beef stew, gourmet burgers or grilled tamari steaks.
6. Mezcal Jaral De Berrio
LCBO#: 47464  SHOP 
This mezcal is produced using traditional methods and is bottled unaged off the still which contributes to its fresh aromas of cucumber, floral and white peach. The palate is lightly viscose and spicy, ending with dominant vegetal notes and hints of sweetness.
7. Stroh Original 54 Spiced Rum
VINTAGES#: 433094  SHOP 
Stroh Original 54 Spiced Rum is a very distinct rum distinguished by its fine, flowery fragrance and potent, herbal nose. This leads to a harmonious, inviting taste that is rich with warm and spicy character. Stroh is loved by mixologists for the kick it adds to their cocktails, and by chefs who prize its unique flavour for baking and compotes. 
8. Lustau Los Arcos Amontillado Dry Sherry
LCBO#: 375097  SHOP 
Medium amber colour; aromas of dried plum, almond, caramel and saline; on the palate it is dry and medium bodied, with flavours of salted almond, pecan, caramel and dates.
9. E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2016
VINTAGES#: 290296  SHOP 
The normal blend of Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne, the 2016 Cote du Rhone Blanc tastes like a mini-Condrieu with its white peach, apricot, spice and citrus aromas and flavors. This medium-bodied, elegant, yet textured beauty over-delivers and will keep for 2-3 years. Score: 90. (Jeb Dunnuck,, Jan. 24, 2018)
10. Domaine de Poix Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017
VINTAGES#: 488908  SHOP 
A pretty, floral nose with lemon, grapefruit and a delightful hint of mint. The palate is quite characterful, with more typically grassy Sauvignon notes than the nose, but it doesn't lose that playful minty suggestion. A fun, light, crisp wine that will knock it out of the park as a sipper but also has the freshness and lift for seafood salads or fish main courses.
11. Domaine Roux Père & Fils Saint-Aubin Les Frionnes 1er Cru 2015
VINTAGES#: 527986  SHOP 
The Roux family is one of the two most significant owners in Saint-Aubin. Compared to the likes of Volnay or Santenay, this wine represents considerable value, especially for a 2015. Excellent harmony among the fresh berry, baking spice and savoury tones. The fine tannins offer good grip and help knit the whole package up quite nicely.
12. Muga Reserva Tempranillo Blend
VINTAGES#: 177345  SHOP 
From Spain's famed Rioja region, this ready-to-drink, Tempranillo-based blend features oodles of rich blackberry, cherry, woodsmoke, cedar and vanilla. Serve it alongside rotisserie chicken and roast potatoes or duck confit.
