The 2007 Alvento Elige is a great example that Ontario can produce a very good Bordeaux blend. I had this wine with John M. He decanted it for 4 hours prior to us trying it side by side with the 2007 Alvento Emilie (which I liked as well). I found the flavors to be well integrated. Medium-full body. typical to the 2007 vintage. great representation of the grapes. pleasant finish. A very good value at $20. needs to lay down for another 2-4 years in the cellar and can be enjoyed for the next 10-12 years.
Alvento Winery Elige Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc 2007, Niagara Escarpment, Canada: This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (33%) and Cabernet Franc (2%) grapes offers savory and cedary notes wrapped around dark fruit. This wine needs cellar time but you'll be amply rewarded for waiting. Intriguing and delicious. Drink: 2012-2018. 226019 13% XD 750 mL $19.95 Score: 88/100. April 22, 2011 Full Review
