Just hits the mark for the price point. It’s structured and tannic, but considerably smooth on the palate for such a young Bordeaux blend. Classic Cab flavous of cherry, blackberry, vanilla & smoky/musky cedar notes. A really easy, soft finish that caresses and seduces you with every sip.

A lot of going on there. Complexity is outstanding. Very strong influence of Cab Franc - which is a good thing in Niagara. Flavorful, distinctive. Tobacco, dark currant, meat and acidity streak. Yum. Celebrity equivalent: Allanis Morisette.

Dynamite wine. Nice ruby colour and a nice poished after taste. A nice alternative to the "Essential's" at the LCBO.
Well worth the money in comparison to the Califonia counterpart.
