Sharon scored this wine: 88/100

Reddish brick brown in colour. Cedar and hint of chocolate on the nose. Astringent tannins and spice on the palate make me wonder if I should have waited another year, but we were eager to open for a special occasion. Long finish. Pair this one with food! A lovely steak or roast would hold up to the structure of the wine. Great gift for long-term storage (e.g. wedding gift to be opened on 3-5 year anniversary). Tasted November 9, 2021

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.
