This was the wine at the ROM VQA event in February that blue me away, WOW and after tasting again tonight June 19th, I remember why. I agree that this is everything the winery describes below. It has many of same characteristics of a classic Loire Valley French Cabernet Franc. The long smoky finish with dark fruit and acidity makes this a classic on its own without food. I can drink this on its own with all of its complexities and this could compliment any meat/game. This is a steal at $24.95. I would buy a few to drink now and a few to drink over 5-8 years. This wine will be great at all stages.
Winery’s TASTING NOTES - Complex on the nose with aromas of blackberries, liquorice and notes of smoke. The palate is fresh and lively with flavours of red currants, spice and
smoke with balancing acidity and ripe yet grippy tannins enveloping the juicy mid-palate on the savory warm finish. Enjoy on release with roasted red meats or pastas with rich, savory sauce. Decant to give the wine a chance to soften with air or cellar for the medium-term.
