Reviews and Ratings

Love this fresh, fruit-driven and zesty Niagara red wine blend of Cabernet Franc , Merlot and Shiraz, rich with ripe plum, dark berry, savoury herbs, meaty and toasty oak spice flavours with a kiss of chocolate on the finish. Enjoy with veggie burgers or a rich mushroom and leek risotto. - Community Wine Reviews
