    NIAGARA’S MOST CONSISTANT ‘SUPER STAR’ RED

    …The Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot) was one of the first red wine successes in Niagara.

    Wine to drink when the power goes out, 2014 edition

    …. • Cote Mas Rouge Intense Mediterrannee 2012 ($10 for a 1-liter bottle, sample, 13.5%): This red, like the Cote Mas white, comes from Paul Mas, who knows a thing or two about quality cheap wine.
