On the eighth day of the Olympics, we raise a glass, in honour of our athletes, of Dan Aykroyd Wines Discovery Series 2007 Cabernet Shiraz. Today we have curling, ski jumping, hockey, cross country skiing, figure skating and skeleton to choose from for our sports and given the diversity in the sports, it just makes sense to have a glass of wine that has won many, many awards for someone who has involvement in many, many areas of life. This Cabernet Shiraz displays a rich bouquet of dark berry fruit and peppery notes. The palate is smooth in texture, showing concentrated flavours of plum and cassis complemented by an undercurrent of spicy layers. Winner of the All Canadian Wine Championships 2008, bronze medal in the Red Vitis Vinifera category, the Canadian Wine Awards 2008, bronze medal, and the prestigious Cuvee Wine Award. Available at the winery or through your LCBO store at $14.95 a bottle.
