A blend of Pinot Noir and St. Laurent grapes from a Prince Edward County winery that is fully off-grid solar-powered. Signature County Pinot with its pleasant notes of cranberry and sour cherry. Medium-bodied and silky with great acidity for seafood.

Harwood Estate Vineyard’s Admiral’s Blend is a delightful medium-bodied red wine with aromas of cherry, coffee and cardamom. As a blend of estate Pinot Noir and St. Laurent, it has a complex palate of Asian spice and chocolate. My favorite paring is with BBQ-grilled salmon, on a warm summer night.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
I was pleasantly surprised with this wine. It is pale clear red and vibrant in the glass. The aromas are lovely raspberry, cranberry, white pepper and some floral notes. The body is light and the acidity is vibrant, making this a good food pairing wine. Would go nice with roasted herb chicken and potatoes, pizza, burgers, pasta with tomatoes, or lentil salad.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Pale ruby in colour, this wine has flavours and aromas of strawberry jam, raspberry, red cherry, cinnamon and black pepper. The light body and soft tannins are balanced with refreshing acidity while the youthful flavours linger on the palate.
Enjoy with your favourite grilled seafood such as shrimp or calamari, and summer salads.
Date tasted: June 2014.
|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This very light pinot and st. Laurent blend is low in alcohol, so lighter body, with cranberry, cherry and vanilla aromas. Not overly complex but would be a nice pairing with trout or salmon on a cedar plank. Not off-dry but still some sweetness, that would contrast a spice infused rub.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
A clear light garnet red wine with earthy, woodsy, red plum aromas. Palate shows tart red plums, earth and a hint of milk chocolate.
|Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Earthy cherry / tart cranberries / herbal / light body with bright acidity
Salmon cakes anyone?
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
A pretty pale ruby wine with the aroma of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and a little new leather and vanilla. The taste and finish are not as sweet at the note would lead you to believe, adding tart cherry to the mix. Nice with a mixed fruit platter or soft cheeses.

June 22, 2014: Pale ruby, cranberry, cherry, allspice with a floral and vanilla notes. Medium light body, sour cherry, cranberry, strawberry flavors with light tannins and juicy acidity with a medium finish that turns slightly bitter. This would work well with cedar planked salmon with a salty herbed crust - 86+.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Cherry and earth on the nose with cranberry and sour cherry candy flavors on the palate.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Pale red in colour, nose showed pleasant mixture of herbs, cranberry, cherry, a touch of green. Very light bodied, noticeable tannins. Medium length cran-cherry-apple finish.
|Susy Domenicano rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Pin cherries and cranberries with a slight new-leather aroma. Bright and tart--almost to a bitter finish--it would be a great compliment to the richness of lobster, or a fried calamari appetizer.
|Chris Coughlin - WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Medium aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and some underbrush (which reminds me of some 'old world wines' simular on the palate with a little plum added. Enjoy with bbq salmon steaks
