A tough lean fairly tannic red with some greenness and earthy tones. It is midweight with dry cherry cranberry fruit...

A tough vintage for sure in Ontario. With cherry, sour plum, and some menthol/herbaceous notes, the nose is fairly true to the palate. The wine opens up with some time (or decanting). There's lots of acidity and decent tannins through the short, tart-cherry finish.
