Ontario does make exceptional red wines and this one is expressive, complex, powerful & delicious

Positives: Firm tannins follow dark cherry, blackberries, blackcurrants, turn tamarind, cassis, star anise, mocha, vanilla, dried herbs, eucalyptus, cinnamon, cloves, leather, turmeric, pencil shavings and tobacco leaves.

Negatives: None

Thanks to the winery’s resident sommelier; Juan Nunez-Sanchez, for selecting this wine for my beef tenderloin steak dinner.

Ageability: Drink now or over the next 7-10 years on its own or pair it with medium rare beef tenderloin steak.

My Opinion: Highly Recommended
