Andrea Shapiro scored this wine: 90/100
Wayne Gretzky Estates’ Cabernet-Merlot blend from their Niagara Peninsula location. This wine is also infused in Whisky barrels from their own distillery's Red Cask Whisky. The bouquet is multi layered with cherry, smoke, cocoa and leather. Flavours are also layered, due to the whisky oak-infusions with dark cherry, cassis, plum, cinnamon and fig with savoury elements of sweet smoke and chocolate lingering into the back. Medium plus bodied, with alluring velvety tannins and a solid dark fruit infused finish. This will stand up nicely to minced-meat pie or honey garlic braised beef ribs. Enjoy!
