Natalie's Score: 90/100

The Merlot (55%) and Cabernet Franc (45%) grapes in this robust red wine blend are kiln dried which concentrates the flavours in the grapes, resulting in a highly flavour-packed and intense wine that is very difficult to achieve in Ontario's cool climate otherwise. Terrific, rich notes of black fruit, toasty oak and dried tobacco and herbs. This is a smoking jacket kind of wine for contemplative after-dinner, world domination discussions.

Cured leaves are stripped from the tobacco sticks on which they grow and sorted according to quality. The best are then used in the kilns to dry the grapes for this appasimento style. - Winery
