Natalie's Score: 89/100

Creekside Red Tractor 2020 is great value at $18. Produced from 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc sourced from three Niagara-on-the-Lake vineyards, vinified and aged in small lots prior to the final blend. The wine is dry, medium-plus-bodied and concentrated with blackberry, spiced plum, wild herbs, chocolate and well-integrated toasty oak spice flavours juicy on the palate. So good now.

Cabernet Merlot food pairings: burgers, ribs, grilled pepper steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Creekside Red Tractor 2020 is great value at $18. This is a zesty and spicy 50% Merlot red wine blend with the balance in Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc produced from grapes sourced from Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region. Dry, medium-plus-bodied with concentrated flavours of dark berry, sagey and lavender herbs finishing with a kiss of chocolate. - Community Wine Reviews
