Strawberry jam nose with a hollow mid palate featuring sweet red licorice. Not worthy of the price. Tasted June 2011.

used to drink this wine 2x a year at the Keg... as they had special priviledge and it was a great light wine for a otherwise heavy meal.

In BC only $10-$12/bottle and always on the shelves. In Ontario almost $18.00 and up until recently you had to pre-order. Lots of other wines that are more reasonably priced that are just as nice.... but this is still a good wine.

A sexy name for a thoroughly unsexy wine. In fact this is maybe the worst wine I've tried in a while.

Green on the nose, green in the mouth, I didn't much like this at all. Everything out of whack: smelled and tasted of green pepper and funky prune juice. Under-ripe and over-extracted is my guess. This odd blend sounds like it was designed to make use of leftovers.

An off-bottle? Maybe. Roll the dice and see for yourself.
