This was my weekend pick. I went for a Portuguese red wine from the beautiful Douro region to celebrate Easter with the family. Nice deep purple colour with flavours of dark cherry and blackberries. Paired it with a typical Easter Portuguese dinner: roasted goat with roasted potatoes and rice. This is a traditional Portuguese wine with a mix of Portuguese varietals: 35% Tinta Roriz, 25% Touriga Franca, 25% Tinta Barroca and 15% Touriga Nacional. Beautiful classy label portraying a “papa-figos” (an oriole). 14% alcohol. $16.95 at the SAQ and $15.10 at the LCBO.

This was my weekend pick. I tried this great Cabernet Sauvignon from California. I purchased a bottle at a SAQ as I was walking towards the cashier as the name and beautiful label caught my attention. Nice purple colour with flavours of plum and dark cherry, this red was great on a Saturday evening with beef stew. 13% alcohol

This was my weekend pick. I tried this great rosé from Josh Cellars in California. I purchased a bottle through the private import option at Montreal’s annual SAQ event La grande dégustation. Nice light red colour with flavours of peach, this rosé was great on a Sunday evening after a sunny spring day with a gourmet pizza. 12,5% alcohol

Of course I had to stop by Tawse’s table at the Taste Ontario event in Ottawa April 3, 2019. I discovered this sparkling wine which was very pleasant. I would pair it with soft cheeses.

Paula scored this wine: 96/100
I discovered this winery at the Taste Ontario event in Ottawa April 3, 2019 and really like their labels and the names of the their wines. Their Apologetic red is 100% cabernet franc and is simply… wow! Amazing! This is their high-end red at almost $60/bottle. So I would pair it well with a filet mignon and mashed garlic potatoes.
