This wine was paired with a lasagna on a Tuesday evening; and came as part of the Colio holiday gift-pack from the LCBO that was given to me.
Ripe red fruit quick toward a tart/bitter finish; but easily drinkable.
Not an ideal example of Lake Erie North Shore; but was satisfied with it given the circumstance.
