Porto

Ramos Pinto Porto 2000

Douro Do, Portugal

Bill scored this wine: 93/100

Nose and palate of dark fruits, blackberry and smoke. Sweet finish that just seems to keep going. This port makes me wish I still smoked cigars as they would be such a wonderful match. Port as port should be. Tasted April 3/16

Le Grand Clos

Oak and vanilla strike the nose. Beautiful citrus palette with full buttery mouth feel. A little spice and tingle on the finish. This wine is a world class chardonnay from Ontario. Tasted Jan 31/16

Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Napa Valley, California, United States

Bill scored this wine: 93/100

Plum, blackberry and dark fruits come through on the nose inviting you to taste. Tart fruits with a wonderful tannic finish. This wine is a fine representation of a Napa cab.

Pirramimma Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia

Bill scored this wine: 93/100

Very full wine and full fruit flavour. Solid tannins with a long fruit finish. The only bad thing about this wine is it is out of stock in Ontario! My Gray Cup wine - tasted Nov. 27/16

Harwood Estates Winery Marquesa 2010

Prince Edward County, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
1449 days ago

Bill scored this wine: 93/100

Beautiful dark colour with a slightly brickish rim. Very rich and full-bodied with long, slow tantalizing legs. Complex aromas of dark fruit, hazelnut and figs. A Velvety mouth feel with a medium length finish of ripe fruit. Tasted it with a fine blue cheese (Castello) and it makes a good cheese great. The cheese pulls the fig and nut out of the wine. A little disappointing with the dark chocolate after the cheese. This quality speaks well for Prince Edward county. Reviews Dec 2, 2015
