Five enjoyable wines under $20

With the wide array of Vintages at the LCBO, it's often a daunting task to find an affordable bottle of wine under $20. 

Here are my go-to picks that will result in someone asking, is there any more wine?

Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet Sauvignon, Washington $19.95

This wine is bold on flavors including cherries, blackberries, currants with a touch of vanilla and finished with mineral notes. It's a great option to serve with powerful flavors such as blue cheese, duck, beef, veal and dark chocolate.

Mission Hill Five Vineyards Rose 2013, B.C. $15.95

Rose isn't just for patio season. The wine's combination of wild strawberries and floral notes will create a refreshing palate when paired with seafood or ham. 

Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay, California $17.95

This chardonnay is great for everyone, including people who don't like chardonnay. Tasting notes include tropical fruit with a hint of coconut. Serve this with cheese, poultry or a creamy pasta. 

La Vieille Ferme, Cotes du Luberon 2011 $11.90

This light wine is easy to drink with it's fruity flavours creating a balance and deliciously aromatic taste. Serve with lobster, poultry and asian dishes. 

The Grinder, Pinotage, South Africa 2012 $13.95

This wine is the perfect gift for any coffee lover you have in your life. It's loaded with toasty oak, coffee, black pepper and dark spices. Executed best when served with a hearty chili, stews and grilled meats.
