Blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 3% Syrah, 2% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot. Medium intensity nose showing smoke, earth, black cherry and red currants. Medium+ bodied palate with nice complexity showing vanilla, mint, licorice, currant and cassis flavours. It has mouth-watering acids and a lingering finish. Delicious! Tasted June/2015.

A quality Ontario wine for under $20
Description: Dark ruby in colour with an intense nose. A fairly complex wine featuring cedar, black & red currants, black raspberry, cloves, cinnamon, dried herbs, mint, cassis, smoked Montreal meat, black pepper, leather and tomato leaves. Medium body with dry tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Note: This shows the world that Ontario red wines can be of good quality at a reasonable price.
Drink now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with Lamb Chops in Moroccan BBQ Sauce.

I'll go with the consensus on this one. Benefits from a bit of decanting. Excellent with roast beef.
