Natalie's Score: 90/100

This blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 27% Franc is incredibly dark and concentrated with a rich core of fleshy black fruit, smoke and dark chocolate notes. This wine was aged in small French oak barrels for those smoky, vanilla spice aromas: delicious! You can order this wine directly from the winery at www.tawsewinery.ca.

Méritage food pairings: rare steaks, beef.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

With a velvety texture and well-integrated oak spice, this seductive wine offers a rich palate of cassis, black cherry, plum and dark chocolate. Share it with someone special. Enjoy now through 2017. Tasted Dec 2013.
This 2009 comes across like a fine St-Julien. Aromas suggest cured meat, cassis, raspberry, cinnamon and smoky cherry wood. Perhaps the richest, ripest nose of any of the Ontario 2009 red wines. Quite dry on the palate with the generous fruit given a great lift by a bright and lively acid backbone. This wine is still incredibly youthful. A monumental wine made for cellaring (3-4+ years). It can also be enjoyed tonight, decanted. Source: VINTAGES Wine Panel, Nov. 2012
