Vintages Wine Panel: This wine won a Silver Medal at the 2010 Ontario Wine Awards, and swirling, sniffing and sipping shows why. The wine finds a happy balance between the Rhône and Aussie Shiraz styles. Aromas suggest pepper, black raspberry, plum, red licorice and vanilla. Dry, with pretty, lush fruit that is almost instantly refreshed by racy acidity. The tannins act as a complement to the fruit and acid. Enjoy this medium-bodied wine. My note: Chocolate and dark plum aromas on the nose. This supple, full-bodied and tasty wine is a very pleasant quaffer.

Syrah food pairings: grilled gourmet sausages.

Holly Bruns rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby; sweet on the nose with ripe berries and dark cherries, rounded out by a little pepper and some floral notes. Silky on the palate with a long finish.
