Fascinating nose on this medium-bodied appassimento, with intermingling notes of balsamic vinegar, butter cream, dark (plum) and dried fruit (fig and raisin); quite hot and velvety in the mouth, with tobacco and cinnamon emerging, though a bit too sweet and a bit too drying on the decent finish, given its youthfulness; overall another interesting and distinctive offering from an excellent producer in Ontario's emerging South Coast region.
