LCBO Text Status A Vintage Assessments Explorer's Selection!
TASTING NOTE: Earthy, leafy plum and berry aromas are spicy, while this cool-vintage reserva feels dense and grabby. Flavors of tobacco, spiced plum and oak out muscle the wine's fruit, while this is mouthfilling but plodding on the finish. Drink through 2022.
