Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

After this wine was featured on Jay Leno, and it was made right here in Nova Scotia, I had to give it a try. And I was pleasantly surprised. A blend of 4 grapes that I had never tried before, Castel, Lucien Kuhlmann, Marechal Foch and Millot were all grown in Nova Scotia and made by Jost wines. Together they made a nice medium bodied wine that was very fruity and easy to drink.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Full-bodied and lusty, with a hint of impulsiveness, 4 SKINS combines a care-fully selected blend of four grapes to create a one-of-a-kind wine. Castel, Lucie Kuhlmann, Marechal Foch, and Millot grapes are blended to a rich, ruby hue, deep in colour and intensity. Paired with barbequed prime rib, roasted venison, hearty Italian cuisine or enjoyed on its own. This is a deeply satisfying wine with a long and pleasurable finish.
