Reviews and Ratings
|Tom Vigeant rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:|
Odd dill, white pepper, licorice and pencil lead on the nose. Full body, medium plus tannins, fleshy, aggressive oak (vanilla and mocha) on the finish.
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Light cherry-garnet colour, this wine is chalked full of fresh summer herbs, cherry, and pepper. Dill and sweet plum on the palate. A funky wine that really stands out. For a Meritage, it doesn't seem to fit the bill, however, the taste and aromas are unique and given its lighter, fruiter, style, would be lovely with cedar plank salmon and fresh dill. Tasted November 2014. 87 points. Matt Steeves - www.nataliemaclean.com
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe dark cherry, pomegranate, strawberry, warming spices, and slight herbaceous notes carried in the medium body and firm tannins. The length is long on the refreshing finish - a true price performer!
Pair with well-dressed sliders or gourmet pizza.
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 2014.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Interesting mix of flavours and aromas. A bit of cooked fruit, raspberry jam, and a bit grassy on the nose. A green, herbaceuos flavour comes through on the palate along with some red fruit and soft oak. Longer finish. Would try this with a mushroom dish or pizza.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:|
Nov 16, 2014: Medium ruby, intensely fragrant with odd floral geranium/grapefruit notes, red berry, vanilla and green pepper. Sweet on the palate, with grapefruit zest, toasty oak, red berry, vanilla, geen pepper and soapy/floral notes - very good length. Interesting wine to say the least, but not quite sure what to make of it.
