Natalie's Score: 89/100

The reference to a painter's palette here alludes to winemaker J-P Cola's artistic blending of mostly Merlot and Gamay grapes, along with smaller amounts of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah grapes, all grown in Niagara. Medium-bodied and mouth-watering. The result? A great palette wine for your palate pleasure. Aromas of black fruit and toasty oak. Try it with grilled pork chops.

Food pairings: thin-crust pizza, charcuterie, cheese boards, rustic stews, grilled veal steaks.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine is a medum bodied blend from the Niagara Peninsula - Flavors of sour cherry and smokey oak dominate the palate, quite enjoyable and very well balanced - definitely a great buy!
From the Niagara Peninsula wine region, 13Th Street Red Palette (2016) is mouth-watering with ripe red berry and black fruit, mocha and smoke from oak ageing. This medium-bodied juicy wine is a collage of 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Franc harvested from 13th Street's Lakeshore and June's vineyards in the Creek Shores. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
