Aromas of spicy plum, black and red cherry, and mocha. Balanced with good concentration, ripe tannins, and medium plus length. A very pleasant wine to drink now or wait 2 to 3 years.

Description: Medium dark ruby with a medium intense nose. Pleasant nose with no notes that over state the others. Light oak with raspberry, wild flowers, coco, vanilla notes, sweet cherry and Christmas cake. The taste is dry, medium tannins and acid, medium length, medium to light body and well balanced. Taste is similar to the nose. This wine is easy drinking and can be paired with an array of different food due to the easiness of the fruits, medium tannins and medium acidity. This wine is nice to drink beside the pool and enjoy during the summer days or night. For the sale price it’s a best buy, for regular price it’s a good buy. If it's sold out at the LCBO, please visit the winery.
