Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lively Gamay from Niagara Peninsula, with aromas of cranberries, beet root, and rose bush, that carry through to a tart cranberry finish on the palate.
Beautiful paired with goat cheese appetizers, or turkey dinner with all the fixings.

Great value under $20, perfect for stocking up several bottles for that large family holiday meal!
Drink now or cellar for a few more years.
Tasted October 2019.
A great value dry and medium-plus-bodied Gamay under $20 from the Niagara Peninsula wine region, 13Th Street is vibrant with tart red berry, cherry, earthy herbs, cracked pepper wrapped up in a smoky veil. Pair with roast beef. - Community Wine Reviews
