Kylie scored this wine: 88/100

This Burgundian style Pinot Noir is an easy drinking and well priced Pinot. Medium red brick in colour with notes of blackcurrant, raspberry, black cherry and a hint of Brett on the nose. Palate is smooth with a nice mouthfeel of dried plums and medium tannins that finish nicely. Would pair well with duck or gamey meats. Available in Nova Scotia at Harvest Wines & Spirits for $19.99

This fresh, fruity light wine is a classic Vinho Verde. Citrus and crisp apple aromas on the nose, notes of pear, apple, and lemon give this wine a refreshing mouthfeel. The spritzy finish is a treat! Would pair well with seafood. Purchased at Bishop's Cellar in Halifax for $12.00

This simple, easy drinking California Zinfandel is a fruit bomb of cherry, plum and candied strawberries. Deep ruby red with hints of cinnamon and clove. Good balance, soft tannins and a touch of warmth gives this wine great mouthfeel. Improves with good company!
