Inniskillin Reserve Viognier 2012

V.Q.A. Niagara Peninsula, Canada
3172 days ago

Mark scored this wine: 91/100

A most supple, round mouthfeel; enticing floral and citrus peel aromas. A touch of sweetness balances the orchard fruit and citrus on the palate, this wine finishes long with notes of cloves and white pepper. A beautiful match for turkey dinner!

This Pinot displays really nice aromas - lots of darker red fruit and earth on the nose. It's medium-bodied with silky mouthfeel, and has loads of raspberry and chocolate with well-integrated oak. Pair this with beef tenderloin.

This juicy pinot has got some body to it! Cherries and raspberries mingle with dark chocolate and herbs, all tied together with a mouth-watering acidity. Finishes long and dry subtly spicy.

Jackson-Triggs Grand Reserve Chardonnay 2012

V.Q.A. Niagara Peninsula, Canada

Mark scored this wine: 89/100

An inviting golden-straw hue in the glass, with a fragrant nose of apples, lemon and spice. The wine supple and creamy, yet nicely balanced by the acidity. Soft yellow apple, pear and a hint of lemon lead to a long, spiced caramel finish.
