Grand Reserve

Jackson-Triggs Grand Reserve Merlot 2012

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
1220 days ago

Alarica scored this wine: 50/100

If I drink another Jackson-Triggs, it would be too soon. Big and bold this definitely was, but no subtle nuances, no lingering flavours, just flat and boring. Not a fan.

7 Year Gran Reserva

Anciano 7 Year Gran Reserva Tempranillo 2007

Valdepenas, Spain

Alarica scored this wine: 50/100

Under $20, medium bodied with a dry palate and a dark berry/vanilla finish, I wish I liked this wine! Unfortunately, this tempranillo was too acidic for me.


Kim Crawford Marlborough Pinot Gris 2014

Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand

Alarica scored this wine: 75/100

I have always been a fan of the Kim Crawford line and this one doesn't disappoint. Crisp, summery and refreshing, this one is a crowd pleaser. It is medium-bodied, with a dry finish with mild acidity. It is versatile and pairs nicely with chicken or fish.

Domaine Darius Chardonnay 2014

Prince Edward County, Canada

Alarica scored this wine: 95/100

Delicious, balanced wine with apple and peach flavours and a clean finish. Richer than most chardonnays, it was a delight with a chicken carbonara.

This wine from the Puglia region of Italy is strawberry/raspberry on the nose, has a nice acidity and is well balanced. Ideal for brunch or lunch with light pastas, vegetarian pizzas or light cheeses. Would be great as an aperitif.
