Fiery Reds

Mid priced, middleweight enjoyable wines are the bread and butter of those of us who like to have a glass or two of wine each night with dinner. We'd be in the poorhouse if we drank $50-100 a bottle wines every night. So, here are two perfect examples of daily drinkers. The Marchigue, Tricyclo, CS-M-CF 2005 has a very aromatic raspberry nose with some palate fruit complexity - bright cherries and raspberries. Medium finish. Quite enjoyable, a good wine and good value for $15 or so.
The Echeverria, Carmenere 2004, also from Chile, is a dark purple wine with a very peppery nose. A mixture of brambles and pepper on the palate, it is a rich, fruity effort that slides down the gullet with a long, olive finish. Also a good/good wine at $15. This has also improved with a year of bottle age - I thought it was very average on opening a bottle last year.

Some yes, a lot no - as you know, it is a lot cheaper to buy in ontario or the US...the selection of non-french wines is also better outside of la belle province!
