RESERVE RED 2019 Icel Vineyard, VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer ICELLARS
This delicious perfectly-ripe estate-grown blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec has a fairly deep intense garnet red colour. The nose shows lots of elegant, ripe, strawberry-cassis fruit with fine complexity including a touch of sandalwood and some gently toasty, faintly savoury notes. Dry, medium bodied, nicely structured, ready-to-enjoy, harmonious, ripe, plummy, crancherry-cassis flavours that show excellent balance with a very faintly smoky, lingering, bright finish. Only 250 cases produced, it has 13.5% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar. CSPC 19742
