Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer
One of 52 items (49% of 106 releases) not presented for evaluation under new LCBO policies. A THIRD REPEAT of the 2010 that last appeared in Vintages (**+) on August 5, 2017 at $19.95 and was a Recommended Best Buy. Here is my previous note: Extremely deep intense purple colour. Slightly spicy, ripe plum-cherry puree nose with some mineral-tinged, cedary notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, fairly ripe plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, spicy, cedary, fairly high acid finish. This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet has 14% alcohol and now 3 g/L residual sugar (down from 6 g/L) . CSPC 448829

Delicious now but better in 2017. Serious wine from this appellation. About 80% merlot and the rest cabernets. Score - 91 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Oct. 21, 2016) Price $ 19.95
