Cuvée 13

13th Street Winery Cuvée 13 Rosé

V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
2717 days ago

Rachel scored this wine: 92/100

Strawberries, crisp raspberries, tart cranberry, and a hint of toasty brown bread. Lovely red-pink colour in the glass, with smooth medium-fine mousse. Great sparkling for charcuterie, blue, or other sharper cheeses.

Konzelmann Estate Winery Pinot Noir 2014

V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
2719 days ago

Rachel scored this wine: 89/100

black cherries, blueberries, (honeycomb?) and raspberries on the palate; supple tannins and medium-light bodied with a medium length finish. Drink now or within the next 2 years. Would pair well with blueberry pie.

Kacaba Vineyards Merlot 2011

V.Q.A., Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada
2720 days ago

Rachel scored this wine: 86/100

Black plum, raspberries, blackberries on the nose; ripe cherries, blackberries, tea leaves, clove?, medium-full bodied. This is a perfect wine for a Sunday roast. A little young right now, but will open up in the next 2 years. Would benefit from decanting. Drink 2014-2017

Voga Italia Pinot Grigio 2012

Trentino, Veneto, Italy
2721 days ago

Rachel scored this wine: 80/100

Great everyday wine, paired table wine, or for those looking to gift. Flint, quince, and pear on the nose; pear and fresh apple on the palate. Light, crisp, and juicy. *** One note: once the inner cork has been removed from the bottle, the closure cap WILL NOT keep the wine from spilling. DO NOT lay the bottle on its side. ***
