Amazing poise in this wine. Gorgeous layered nose of raspberry and blackberry and earthy spice with a touch of vanilla. The palate is silky but with concentrated berry, herb, and spice. It's very nicely balanced with a warm, lengthy finish of fruit and spice. The tannins are a bit green but it's drinking very well. I enjoyed with venison and pork tourtière and it was synergistic match. Great to see reasonably priced Canadian wines achieving this level of sophistication.
