Southbrook Vineyards Triomphe Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario VQA, Canada: Juicy and savoury, yet with a deliciously attractive note of fleshy sweet blackberry on the nose and palate. This full-bodied, dry red wine is Ontario's leading organic and biodynamic winery hands down. Beautifully supple and rich with a long finish. Pair with a rare juicy steak from grass fed cattle. Drink: 2014-2019. 193573 12.60% D 750 mL  $22.95 Score: 91/100. September 15, 2015 Top Rated Red Wine. Best Beef Wine Full Review
Veuve Clicquot Non-Vintage Champagne, Champagne A.C., France: This classic, well-known Champagne is a traditional blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Lime zest, green apple and freshly baked bread aromas on the nose, with a terrific persistence of bubbles on the palate. Try the ultra-shabby chic combo here between French Champagne and a bucket of KFC chicken. Why wait for New Year’s or a wedding before you pop open bubbly when it’s so tasty? The bonus is that it’s just about the best partner for fried food on the planet: it’s mouth-watering acidity and bubbles wash away the fat, making you want more of course. Drink: 2017-2022. 563338 12% D 750 mL  $70.60 Score: 92/100. July 5, 2018 Top Rated Sparkling Wine. Fantastic Fried Chicken Wine Full Review
