Reply to "LCBO Price Alert"

The Covenant @ $34 is what the price should've been in the fist place instead of the ridiculous $49 that LCBO started with. The Guidalberto is good at $49. This is the 2nd wine of Sassicaia, so it's got good lineage.

Continuing with the QPR theme, the '05 Esporao Reserva is one of the better wines I've had from Portugal and appears to be just silently release. I originally found out about this at Chiado (a Portuguese restaurant) when I had the '04 vintage and loved it. The '05 has the acidic umph to go with hearty meals with a deep blackberry taste and just enough tannins to give it some depth and backbone. I'm buying more.

I found this wine available at 3 locations I visited the past week (Summerhill, Queen's Quay and Leaside). Good value, IMHO, for about $25.
