Like a smaller Versailles, this is one of the most beautiful and historic palaces in Europe. Just visited it with Lisa and Ashley. Culture, history and splendor.
Wow, you can have a BEER here. This location is across from the Opera and beside Hotel Sacher.
An astoundingly popular varietal, this wine is less austere than many PGs. It displays enjoyable fruity tones of fresh, ripe honeydew melon, smoky pear and a hint of apple on a crisp finish. Enjoyed it at Allens Restaurant on Danforth in Toronto. My favourite English Pub.
($20) RATING: 90.
A charming Bordeaux with fruity, earthy and subtle spicy aromas. A very nice nose. A light wine with nuances of black and red berries, subtle cherries, raisins and vanilla. Many of the aromas continue in the flavours with additional notes of ultra ripe strawberries. Light tannins. Smooth finish. It’s a round wine. Delicate, lively and easy to enjoy. Joe called it “An elegant silky seductress!” 60% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc, 30% merlot. Not oak-aged.
