Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is Black Widow winery's signature blend, comprised of 67% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in French oak barrels (about 40% new) for 21 months. Aromas of black currant, plum and black cherry on the nose, mingled with warm oak, smoke and a hint of vanilla and spice. Full bodied on the palate, with firm, yet structured tannins, bold, deep berry notes with a note of balancing acidity. Lovely, enjoy with a grilled steak.
Our signature red is once again a blend of Merlot (67%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (33%),
most of which is Estate grown. Harvested late October at 23.3 Brix. Barrel aged in
French Oak barriques, of which 50% were new, for 21 months. Many awards over the
years, including Best in Class – Double Gold at the All Canadian Wine Championships.
Generally rated 92 points or higher. Non-fined, non-filtered – decanting is
recommended. - Black Widow Winery Winemaker Notes
