I am not sure if it is a mistake or not, but the wine I tried was a 2007 vintage. LCBO has not carried 2005 even though they post it, nonetheless I am reviewing the 2007 vintage. This light bodied wine has integrated notes of cherry and vanilla. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 1 hr or longer) and the finish is medium to long. It has the potential to evolve for a few more years at least. My impression: very NICE. Tasted Mar/10.

If you would like to see wines I recommend and that are still available at the LCBO, please visit this link (listed in my profile):
