The Foreign Affair Pinot Noir 2013

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, V.Q.A., Canada
32 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 89/100

Lovely nose of stewed plums, berries and cherries. Lots of flavours going on here including anise, cedar, and well balanced tannins here. If you're not normally a person that likes pinot noir, I encourage you to give this one a try! This would pair well with ribs or stew. Or try with a warm desserts that bring in some of the fruit and spice flavours like mixed berry pie or crisp! Tasted September 18, 2018

Sharon scored this wine: 93/100

Um, more please?! I don't normally drop $35 on a bottle of wine unless it's a special occasion. But. you. must. buy. this. wine. Now see, I like my red wine to go down smooth, so smooth that it's like drinking juice. Delish!!! Oh right, the aromas and flavours and such...well.....cherry, pine, mint, cedar with very well balanced acidity and soft taninns. Normally I give away the wines I get to sample (can't possible drink them all!) but I'm hanging onto this one! There's no bad luck in Road 13. Pair with...uh...a Friday night alone binge-watching Netflix?! Yup you deserve it after a hard week! Spoil yourself! You're worth it! p.s., HEY LCBO! Please bring this one to Ontario!!!!

Campofiorin

Masi Campofiorin 2014

Verona, Italy
32 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 88/100

Can't go wrong with a classic like Masi! A classic celebrating 50 years (1964-2014). Aromas and flavours of cedar, cherry and smoke. Medium to full bodied with a long finish. Would fair well in the winter with a roast or in the summer with a steak on the BBQ. Tasted September 18, 2018

Organic

Frogpond Farm Organic Cabernet Merlot 2016

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
32 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 85/100

Sour cherry and cedar on the nose. Flavours of tart cherry, mint and eucalyptus. As it's more medium-bodied, I'd pair with BBQ ribs or pork tenderloin. Tasted September 18, 2018

Odyssey

Gray Monk Estate Winery Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia V.Q.A., Canada
32 days ago

Sharon scored this wine: 89/100

Leather and cherry aromas with a hint of smoke. Full bodied with flavours of cherry and cedar and a long lingering finish. Would pair well with a Friday night, a large wedge of Beemster cheese and great conversation. Tasted September 18, 2018

Memorable Wine

Shiraz or CabSauv from Black Opal Winery. Can't get the wine in Ontario, but my aunt always set a bottle aside for me when I'd come visit her! Great memories!

First Wine

Probably a sip of my mom's sauvignon blanc when I was in my late teens.

Unusual Wine Experience

A wine tasting class that paired different wines with potato chips.

Current Fav Wine

I'm branching out from my usual CabSauv and Shiraz and exploring Zinfandel and CabMerlot wines.
