Old Vines

Nichol Vineyard Old Vines Syrah 2020

Naramata Vineyards, British Columbia, Canada
3 days ago

Jennifer scored this wine: 93/100

Lovely Syrah from Canada's oldest Syrah vines. Aromas of bright red cherry and ripe raspberry, along with hints of lilac, black pepper, and a slight note of salinity. Full bodied, robust and rounded, with bright acidity, vibrant red and black fruit notes, and a gamey, salami hint. Lovely! Enjoy with charcuterie or roasted rack of lamb.

The Walking Fool

Caymus-Suisun The Walking Fool Red Blend 2020

Suisun Valley, California, United States

Jennifer scored this wine: 90/100

Deep and robust. This is a blend of Zinfandel and Petit Sirah, with aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cedar, and a hint of cigar box. Medium + bodied, with moderate acidity, smooth tannins, and rich, rounded berry notes, slightly jammy but brightened with that hint of acidity. Smoke and mineral hints on a lengthy finish. Enjoy with grilled pork tenderloin or gourmet burgers.

Queenston Mile Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

St. David's Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
8 days ago

Jennifer scored this wine: 91/100

Gorgeous Chardonnay! Aromas of golden apple, pineapple and pear, with a hint of honeyed spice. Medium bodied, smooth and silky on the palate, with nice body, but also a lot of freshness. Lovely tropical and apple notes and a lengthy finish, with a bit of apple pie spice. Enjoy this with halibut or any other white fish, and this would also stand up to rich, creamy sauces.

Bourbon Barrel Aged

Stave & Steel Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

California, United States

Jennifer scored this wine: 88/100

Bold and robust. Berry, smoke and spicy aromas on the nose. Full bodied and smooth, again with those berry and smoky notes on the palate with just a hint of caramel. Enjoy with prime rib or braised beef ribs


Creekside Iconoclast Syrah 2020

St. David's Bench, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
8 days ago

Jennifer scored this wine: 90/100

Wonderful example of cool-climate Syrah, with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, tobacco, dried herbs, and black pepper. Full bodied, bold with some firm tannins and a great hint of acidity. Fruit and berry flavours are rounded and ripe, but not overly so. Hints of pepper and herbs on the finish. Perfect to enjoy with any barbeque meats.
