This is an alltime fav of mine, easy drinking, everyday wine!
Okay first I must tell you this was my last bottle of this wine and the LCBO doesnt have anymore (believe it was released around this time last year), so I was a bit sad to be drinking the last one, I didnt really want to share with Jayme!
So to describe this wine....the nose is amazing! slightly confected, raspberry, cherries, plum, with a slight hint of tobacco and cigar.
The palate doesnt disappoint, the oak comes through a bit stronger in the mouth, stewed cherries and other red berries. Very juicy mouthfeel, medium tannins, firm acid but so well balanced.
This wine is so great to just have on its own, as I did (didnt go to well with the wings and fries we had for dinner....that where the beer came in handy)
This wine is a fav of mine so hopefully the LCBO will carry the product again so you all and myself can partake!
