LAURA'S RED 2016 VQA Niagara Peninsula
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CREEKSIDE
Very deep intense purple colour. Complex, spicy, intense, ripe, plummy, black cherry purée nose with some cedary notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, well structured, slightly spicy, tangy, intense, ripe, gently complex, plum-cassis-black-cherry flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, gently cedary finish. Ripe and quite ready-to-drink, this has 13% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with a screwcap closure. This THIRD REPEAT of the 2016 is is not much more attractive than when it was last released on August 17, 2019 at $25.00. CSPC 117960

TASTING NOTE: From the Niagara wine region in Ontario, Creekside's Laura's 2016 is a full-bodied Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon with 2% Syrah added into the mix and showing a lot of promise. On the nose field berries, wet stone, chocolate, earthiness and hint of vanilla. There's plenty of acidity for food and some warming alcohol on the palate. Long toasted oak and cherry finish. Decant and drink now or hold in cellar for three to five years. Food pairings: tourtière, lamburger, pork pies. Drink 2019-2023.
