  1. I love Ravenswood wine – I visited them in California and was super (interesting – my favourite at the time was their chardonnay!) – we can always get their “normal’ Zin here for less than $20 – is this single vineyard version worth the price?

  2. I have had Cuma Torrontés before, I used to buy it by the box when I lived in Brazil. Excellent value! Cuma Malbec is also excellent value, maybe the LCBO will bring that as well!
