Alana scored this wine: 92/100
Another tasting from the Montreal 'A Taste of Napa Valley' wine event, this complex yet easily drinkable wine was my showstopper! Medium-bodied, dry, without overbearing woodiness this beautifully coloured red has a complex nose (spice, smoke and ripe fruit), a broad texture and a medium finish. Notes of both vanilla and spice round this wine beautifully. I could see this pairing with a simple roast chicken, roasted vegetable dishes or smoke cheeses such as gouda and aged cheddar. Shall be purchasing a case of this for certain as would likely age beautifully over a couple of years!
