|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of currant, berries, and a hint of mint. Tart, flavours include berry, smoke and some herbaceous notes. Try with a roast or short ribs.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Dark fruit, tobacco leaf, pepper, leather. Not overly expressive wine. Maybe some decanting would open it up?
|Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:|
Intense ruby/garnet red colour. Complex aromas of cherry, cranberry, blackberry, plum, prunes, bell peppers, cedar, baking spice, and smoky notes. Rich flavours on the palate, mainly plum, cherry, black pepper, green bell pepper, a hint of vanilla and some dusty earth. Grippy tannins, tart acidity, and medium finish of plum, green bell pepper and spice. Serve with grilled lamb (add lots of garlic and olive oil to your grilling pan). Decent valued wine.

|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:|
This generic Bordeaux has a humble nose of dried leaves and green pepper. The mouth is honest. Nothing spectacular but ok.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:|
Des notes de cedres et de cassis,et un soupcon de notes empyreumatiques,au nez. Astringence et acidité se jettent sur vous, comme des filous au coin d'une rue.Un fruité certain,se révèlent ensuite, Moyen long. Peut-etre en crise d'adolescence...à réessayer dans un an.
It has an interesting nose, of fog in the woods,but the mouthfeel is almost an assault, with its tartness and astringency.It has a certain fruity character,but i would try in again in a year,to be fair with it. There is a sale at the LCBO, now,so it makes it a better deal.

A low price Bordeaux blend, that offers tart fruit, with herbal notes. Dry, not overly complex, but would make a good partner with a roast beef meal. Enjoy now. Tasted February 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
