Vintages Wine Panel: Flat Rock Cellars does not voluntarily divulge which varieties make up their Twisted blends. But if you visit their website (www.flatrockcellars.com) and hazard a guess by clicking on the “Get Twisted” link, you will find out if your suspicions were correct. Here’s a hint: they’re not all red grapes. The latest incarnation of Red Twisted is medium ruby in colour with aromas of cedar, strawberry, black cherry, earth and pepper. It’s dry, medium-bodied with fresh red fruit flavours balanced by bracing acidity and culminating in a medium-length, spicy finish. A lively, crowd-pleasing red to enjoy. My note: This is such an exciting winery! Every year their wines get even better, and they started off strong. I adore this red with dark red berries and fruit wrapped in a smoky oak blanket. Comforting notes of espresso and dark spices. A terrific finish. I can’t wait to see what they do next!

Food pairings: grilled salmon, baked herbed chicken, thick-cut pork chops.
