Med+ intensity of purple to ruby in colour. Highly aromatic showing purple lilacs, dark cherry, vanilla, Christmas cake, Bramble fruit pie, cloves & pine, sambuca & sandalwood . On the palate; medium minus tannins, med acidity, med to full body, balanced with a med+ length. Similar to the nose, there‘s Bramble fruit, Christmas cake, pine, vanilla, dark cherry, fig and plums. I simply love this wine as it’s easy to drink, very pleasant too on the nose and the taste, you can drink on its own or pair with grilled pork chop with sautéed shallots and oyster mushrooms, and it’s only $11.95! (LCBO has it often on sale for $10.95).

If you have any of the 2006 vintage still in your cellar, try it now. The added eight months in the bottle has made an amazing difference, smoothing the fruits and tannins and lengthening the finish. The 2007 vintage, now on the shelves, reminds me of the 2006 vintage a year ago...8 or 10 months in your cellar should bring it to the same level.
