Reviews and Ratings
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Intense, ripe flavours of black berry, cassis, black pepper and cloves with an opulent yet refreshing mouth-feel. This wine is judiciously oaked and is a great example of New World Syrah.
Enjoy today, or cellar for 3 - 5 years.
Pair with braised meats.
Date tasted: August 2014.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Deep purple. Sweet plum and cassis aromas, with vanilla and baking spice. A touch of pepperiness to keep it grounded. Very plush and lingering wine with cassis and anise. Not a lot of acidity. I would pair this with blue cheese burger.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
August 17, 2014: Deep ruby, plummy, smoky, toasty, vanilla and spice on the nose. Some sweetness on entry, plummy, toasty with soft tannins and medium acidity. Lacking varietal characteristic, this comes across as a commercial/generic wine for mass appeal. Good for an outdoor BBQ party.
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby color!
that's a woody full body wine with aromas of plum, blackberry, cigar box and spice.
This wine is long on the palate.
Serve this wine at 15-17 degrees.
This wine can be aged 6 to 8 years.
Pair it with elk, caribo or Bison burgers.
|Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:|
Cherry, some moka and light spice on nose. Fleshy, full bodied, ripe plummy and black cherry flavours. Intense (a little off balance) oak and alcohol characteristic of commercial shiraz, lacks a bit of acidity. Lingering finish. BBQ/pizza/burger wine.
