Reviews and Ratings

Jay Denney rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I tasted this wine beautifully paired with a dark chocolate flan. A liquid version of granny's homemade jams - lush with berries, sweet up front, tangy in the back.
From the Niagara Peninsula wine region, Lakeview Cellars 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Icewine is a medium-bodied, juicy, sweet and spicy bright plum, dark cherry and ripe red berry flavours on the palate. Chill and sip with dark chocolate studded with dried red berry and cherry fruit. This vintage was awarded Gold in the 2019 All Canadian Wine Championships. - Community Wine Reviews
