This is one of 68 items (125 releases) that was not going to be presented for evaluation under new LCBO policies. A REPEAT of the 2015 that last appeared in Vintages (***) on November 9, 2019 at $49.95 and was Recommended. Here is my previous note: Very deep intense red colour. Intense, spicy, baked plum-apple nose with some cedar-sandalwood notes along with a touch of mocha-chocolate. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, quite well structured, slightly spicy, bright, warm, intense, very ripe, rounded, plum-cherry flavours with a lingering, sandalwood-tinged, slightly earthy finish.
