Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Young plums, eucalyptus, vanilla, green pepper, white pepper, spice. Lots going on. The taste is smoother, mainly plum, spices, and vanilla. The finish is plum and vanilla with some soft tannins and a good acidity. This would be a great pizza wine.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Medium ruby colour, with dark ripe fruit, vanilla and spice aromas and flavours. Nice complexity that has some good acid and tannins to balance it all out. Full-bodied red that would be great with slow-cooked ribs on a smoker or some barbequed Italian sausages.
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review: Funky label, flavourful wine! Clear medium ruby colour with aromas of black current(cassis), black plum, cherry, strawberry, violet, cloves, black pepper, cedar, wet earth. Clean, medium+ acidity, medium+ body with flavours of dark cherry,cranberry,strawberry, vanilla, black pepper, cola, wood smoke. Grainy tannins suggest this wine could have some life in it yet! Another 2-3 years. Long, fruit driven finish. XD and good value at $17.95 Pair with grilled red meats or a hearty beef stew. Tasted-July 2014

Our Mark of Passion Cabernet-Merlot explodes with flayers of black fruits, cherries, plum, and spice. It is rich and complex, yet finishes like silk. Available exclusively through LCBO Vintages this September.
