I'm not a sherry person but wow this was spectacular! Flavours of caramel, raisins, baking spices with this super sweet and flavorful sherry. Pair with coffee cake, French vanilla ice cream, or an after dinner platter of nuts and cheeses. Tasted March 21, 2018

I tasted 9 different wines on a Friday evening at Vineyards in Ottawa and this was my absolute favourite! Nose was delightful filled with pomegranate and cherry. It was delicious....dangerously delicious. Very smooth! Not available at LCBO, but I am going to track it down! (January 6, 2017)

Beautiful nose of barnyard and cherry with hints of smoke. The palette is full bodied, smooth, acidic and well balanced. What an absolutely delicious wine!

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!!!!

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.
