Natalie's Score: 90/100

Superb! Strawberry rhubarb aromas with a gorgeous depth and complexity. This wine is a blend of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and syrah. Lovely long finish. What a treat!

Icewine food pairings: strawberry-rhubarb pie and vanilla ice cream.

Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Icewine is always a treat. Super sweet with strawberry, cherry syrup, alcohol, cake spice. It packs a punch on the palate. i like to pair icewine with opposites. Sweet/salty or sweet/bitter. That being said Stilton cheese or 60%+ dark chocolate. It would be difficult to find dessert equally sweet. But that would be half the fun!
Lovely, appetizing aromas of wild strawberry jam, ripe raspberry and a hint of red pepper jelly. Sweet and mouthfilling yet delightfully lithe, with lifted tangy and savoury flavours adding to the allure. Complex, balanced and beautiful Icewine with a long finish. Chill and sip for a sweet treat this Valentine’s Day. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012
