This wine is at its peak and showing beautifully now
Positives: A smooth wine with a long finish featuring strawberry, cranberry, oregano, Champagne mushrooms and leather.
Interesting Point: The Nebbiolo vines were planted in 2001 with their last vintage 2012. Unfortunately, the polar vortex that hit this region in 2014.Nebbiolo is a rarity for Canada, and even more rare as these vines are no longer here, so value for the money it’s worth the cost.
Ageability: Drink now or over the next couple of years.
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
