Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MATCHBOOK
Deep intense purple colour. The nose is quite attractive with gently spicy, ripe and plummy fruit along with some cedary notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, quite well structured, slightly spicy, tangy, fairly intense, ripe plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, gently cedary, bright finish. Has 13.9% alcohol and according to the LCBO 6 g/L residual sugar with number 21-2012009Z on the lower part of the glass bottle. This crowd-pleaser is quite ready-to-drink. Previously the estate grown grapes (a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot) were fermented in small temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks and aged for 12 months in French, Hungarian and American oak.

TASTING NOTE: This potent and rather compact wine shows excellent concentration and a quiet strength that comes out with time in the glass, as velvety tannins wrap around blueberries, dark chocolate and tobacco notes. A bit tight in texture, this wine should drink best from 2024-2030. Editors' Choice. Score - 93 (Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast, July 1, 2022) Price $ 21.95
