The wine is deep ruby-purple. Aromas suggest ripe to over-ripe cherry, blackberry and plum fruit, with notes of violets and dry herbs. It is dry, with firm acidity, slightly elevated alcohol, a medium-full body, and ripe, slightly chewy tannins. The red and black berry fruit is ripe and plummy on the palate, heat is evident but constrained, with a menthol lift and a subtle cedary undertone. Overall there is lots of life here: the fruit retains an element of freshness, and the wine is in good balance. A pleasant barbeque wine. • Tasted 2017-06-10 • LCBO id#489948 • Find it at your nearest LCBOWINE GURU SELECTION INC (Agent)
