Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of wine-makers aromas here; cigar box, leather, vanilla, herbs and spices as well as black cherry. The taste is cherry and vanilla with some soft tannins and a long cherry and spice finish. An excellent wine with roast beef.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Red fruit and oak on the nose. Flavors of raspberry, red currant, earth, dill and tobacco.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very distinct oak barrel notes on this meritage blend. There is rich berry aromas and flavours with a lift of eucalytus and the smokey-vanilla finish from toasty oak barrel. Silky. Would go well with tender beef tenderloin medallions.

Good example of what sort of wines can be made in the Ontario climate. With aromas and flavours of: raspberry, blackberry, tabacco and some white pepper this Meritage from Pelee Island will not disappoint.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A clear garnet red wine with aromas of cedar and red berries. The palate give blueberries and tobacco flavours. Medium-bodied.
Great to serve with beef stir-fry.
Tania Thomas CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This delicious blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc comes from Canada’s southernmost point of Pelee Island. The island’s unique microclimate with a few frost days and plenty of sunshine year round allows for full ripening of these Bordeaux varietals. Full bodied, rich and juicy, it is bursting with aromas and flavours of black raspberries and blackcurrants. Great structure and bold tannins, just starting to soften. Hints of tobacco and chocolate on a long lingering finish. Excellent paired with grilled beef or lamb.
