It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

It's been a few years since this Crasto bottling has been on the LCBO shelves. This used to be a go-to quality value wine. Now, it's up $2 in prices since we last saw it and the product, while still good, certainly is not up to the 2011. The '15, while still with some pleasant darker berry fruit, is lighter and leaner than prior vintages and finishes with a bit of sharp acidity. Still, a good wine, but not the compelling value it once was. Tasted May 2018.
