rated this wine as 75/100 with the following review:

From jackson trigg website:
The grapes for the Jackson Triggs 2004 Delaine Vineyard Cabernet-Merlot were harvested between November 4th and 11th at 21.5 degrees Brix from the Delaine Vineyard in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Winemaking
The grapes for our 2004 vintage were fermented on the skins for 14 - 22 days. The wine underwent complete malolactic fermentation and was 100% barrel aged for in small oak barriques.

Winemaker's Notes
Brilliant crimson in colour, our 2004 Cabernet/Merlot exhibits a generous, complex bouquet of black cherry, currant and blackberry aromas layered with spicy notes of tobacco and delicate vanilla oak. Firm leather tannins support a profusion of lush raspberry, chocolate and mint flavours.

Food Pairings
The Cabernet-Merlot pairs perfectly with beef tenderloin, venison, prime rib, rack of lamb or aged cheeses.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
