LCBO New World Wine- Australia 3/8
This feels like a pinot parading as an old-world cab sauv. It's in your face- stronger than what you would expect from a pinot. Definitely agree that it is well structured but I wouldn't call it delicious.
Has a woody and syrupy smell, discernable tannin, delicate-
