Dark ruby in colour with a medium intense nose.

Positives: This easy drinking wine features oak, Allspice, tar, blackcurrants, blackberry, plums, tamarind, arugula and tarragon. Full body with medium tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: Some tartness on the finish

Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with veal parmigiana.

Tasted: 23 Feb 13

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5+

Dark ruby color. Somewhat unbalanced. This wine's smokiness and spice dominate, making it a good match for bbq'd fare. LCBO's current $3.00 off sale brings this wine into good value territory, so Grip it n' sip it! May 2013.
