Reviews and Ratings

Michelle rated this wine as 100/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Delicious aromas of cassis and blackberry with gentle spice on the nose, followed by a rich palate of ripe dark cassis, blackberry, vanilla and baking spice. Smooth and velvety, well-balanced with just the right touch of acidity; everything you want in a Cab Sauv. Long silky fruit finish. Perfect with a steak. Try it and you'll see why this is one of the LCBO's favourite Cabs.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

A deep ruby colour with rich purple hues. The aromas are of blackberry and plum with a hint of blueberry, and some chocolate and toasted oak overtones. On the palate, expect berries, chocolate and smoky toasted oak. The flavours are rich and full, with a soft, supple texture and a lingering finish.
