A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan. Deep ruby in colour with a savoury nose of black raspberry, oak and a herbal-floral note; medium-bodied, lean and sinewy on the palate with expressive mid-palate fruit and lively acidity.
Opaquely dark garnet. Mature, medium-strength nose of raisins, treacle toffee and a nice bit of barnyard. Medium-bodied, tasting of blackcurrant and other dark berries, an elegant, clearly Old-World wine. Tannins are still prominent but the fruit may be thinning. Drink soon.
Shows dark fruit with evident note of plum, subtle cinnamon and a deft hint of oak. Solidly structured with firm, dry tannins and dark chocolate culminating in a firm, well-integrated finish.
From the winery’s Osoyoos estate, this Côte-Rôtie salute was co-fermented with 5% Viognier. Upfront, lifted dusty red and black fruit with vanilla notes before a mocha toned palate, underpinned by approachable, well integrated tannins, with cassis, dark plum and peppery notes through the close.
If your tastes align with reds such as Tannat or Sagrantino, then this wine is for you. Opaque black colour; the tannins will melt the cement that holds your filling place. Plum, cherry, spice, earth and dark cocoa carry long on the finish. This wine needs protein, preferably on the medium-rare side of the spectrum.
Gold-medal winner at this year’s Ontario Wine Awards, this wine packs a lot of punch for the price. Mid-weight, the fruit and work in tandem to produce a profile of pear, apple, citrus, cream, spice and honey. It lingers with a crisp edge, making for a beautiful partner with salmon or halibut.
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive backward wine that requires another 2 years in the bottle before being enjoyed. The nose is still a tad shy at this early stage, but cassis, black raspberries, menthol, plums, cherries, spice and cocoa are discernible. Medium- to full-bodied, the tannins are distinct and strong, so when the time arises, serve it with some medium-rare steak with a char on the outside. Drink it from 2014 to 2021.
