CREEKSIDE LAURA'S RED 2018 VQA Niagara Peninsula
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CREEKSIDE
A REPEAT of the recommended 2018 (***) that was released on February 4. 2023 at $25. Very deep intense purple colour. Complex, very slightly spicy, ripe, Damson plum nose with some hints of black cherry and gentle woodsy cedar notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, quite well structured, faintly spicy, gently complex, ripe, plum-cassis-cherry flavours with a lingering, bright, gently cedary, fairly youthful albeit harmonious finish. This tasty blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Malbec, 2% Shiraz and 3% Petit Verdot was aged for 9 months in a combination of 1 and 2 year old French oak. Perfect with a rib steak, it has 12.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar with lot number 2020 08 05-10 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Screwcap closure. CSPC 117960
