Category: Red Wine
Location: LCBO Vintages
Format: 750 mL
Alcohol: 14% Alcohol/Vol.
I don’t know if I should like this or not as if I’m looking for a Merlot, this is atypical. However, if I’m searching for a Primitivo, this fits the taste profile.
Positives: Full body, oak driven featuring raisins, plum, dried prunes, figs, cherry, mocha, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and Christmas cake.
Negatives: Some heat from the listed 14% alcohol
Interesting Point: The bottle label has this as 14% alcohol, however LCBO web site puts it at 15%. I would lean more towards the 15%.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next 5-7 of years.
My Opinion: Not Recommended
Tasted: November 23, 2018

Why “not recommended”? Your general comments don’t indicate anything particularly negative about this wine, and it would therefore be helpful to explain “Not recommended”. Thanks.

Thanks Steve for your observation and comment. I went back and revised my opinion to being “On the Fence”.
