2 great choices available from Cristall Wine Merchants

Cristall Wine Merchants in the Sunnyside Mall, Bedford, carries two red wines from Mossback in California, including a 2009 Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon and a 2010 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (both $25.90).

The Cab wins out, well-structured with stone fruit, chocolate, and leather notes; tannins are firm and ripe–this is well worth drinking now but will hold up in the cellar for several years as well.

The Pinot follows close behind, and is once again well-rounded and very drinkable, perfect with lamb, trout, or salmon. There’s excellent blackberry and cherry flavours, without being too jammy.

Trout Point Lodge and other top Nova Scotia restaurants have both featured on their lists.
