OTTAWA -- L.A. Cetto Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Guadalupe Valley, Baja California, Mexico

Incredible value on this smooth, silky and juicy red. Look for juicy, fleshy dark fruit, blueberry compote and savoury fine herb flavours on the palate. L.A. Cetto is the best-known wine producer in Mexico. Founder Don Angelo Cetto, of Italian origin, settled in Mexico in 1926. The Guadalupe Valley provides a great climate for viniculture: the Pacific Ocean’s cool winds result in chilly nights to maintain fresh acidity in the grapes while the days are very warm to ripen them.

Cotnari Grasa de Cotnari 2017
Cotnari, Moldavia D.O.C., Romania

Cotnari is a Romanian white wine from the Moldova wine region and produced from the Grasa grape. There is less than 1200 acres of Grasa planted in the world and all of it in Romania. Although Grasa is used to make both dry and sweet-style wines, this wine is a dessert wine made with botrytis-affected grapes to produce a semi-sweet style. Ripe apricot, marzipan and walnut flavours on the palate is matched by vibrant acidity. Chill and pair it with a dark chocolate mousse or creamy blue cheeses.
