Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Henry of Pelham 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
A lovely, refreshing blend of ripe apricots, peach and pear. Delicious, zesty and nicely balanced. Great as an aperitif or with many dishes.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Like three good friends out on the town this wine is Merlot + Cab.Franc + Cab.Sauvignon: dark, juicy and delicious. Lots of lush berry flavours. The savoury flavours from oak aging add ambiance, like dinner by the fire in the den or the backyard.|
Released in General List at the LCBO
