Natalie's Score: 89/100

Big honkin’ purple plums and blueberries with kirsch liqueur running right the heart of this whopper wine. Supple and pow!

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

This wine has really hit its stride in 2013. Blackberries, linzer torte, black licorice and a hint of coffee wrap beautifully around its warm, toasted core. 94 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

I am so glad LCBO re-released this wine on May 29/10, had no choice but to get a case. I made new review notes as soon as I purchased it, and they coincide with what I wrote below. Tasted again May/10. Recommended buy - get few bottles/case while there are some left.

I have tried the 2006 (released Aug15/09, 974394) alongside the 2007 (released Nov21/09, 145920). The 2007 vintage is smooth, aromatic, light to medium bodied with notes of cherry, black currant, coconut, oak, vanilla and smoke. It is tannic (needs at least an hour to open) and hence it can still benefit from aging for 5 to 10 years. The finish is nice and long and unfortunately I was only able to get a single bottle :-(. I would definitely like to try this wine again. My impression is somewhere between BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE. Tasted Dec/09.
Brad rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

this wine was a bright purple colour, loaded with fruit aromas, sweet licorice, black cherry and an all around fruit loaded wine, this is a nice drinkable wine
