A quality Ontario wine for under $20
Description: Dark ruby in colour with an intense nose. A fairly complex wine featuring cedar, black & red currants, black raspberry, cloves, cinnamon, dried herbs, mint, cassis, smoked Montreal meat, black pepper, leather and tomato leaves. Medium body with dry tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Note: This shows the world that Ontario red wines can be of good quality at a reasonable price.
Drink now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with Lamb Chops in Moroccan BBQ Sauce.
