Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lovely black plums and berries roll through your senses with this full-bodied red. Rich and smoothly textured with good grip and structure. This is a consistently good producer year after year; one you can trust. Cabernet Blend food pairings: rare to medium grilled red meats, meat pies.

Andre reviewed this wine as follows:

This is one of my "go to" Ontario wines. I think it's funny that after speaking to several wine makers and wineries many were unhappy with the 2008 year. That being said this is an excellent Red blend and I think for many people the benchmark for what a great Ontario blend should be.

I called this a party wine, because you could bring this to a party and satisfy even the pickiest (snobbiest) of red wine drinkers as you get a perfect matching of Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Merlot.
