Reviews and Ratings

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very attractive nose, and nice on the palate at this price. Fantastic value for a rustic red that's not far from sangiovese.
Carla rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Great value wine! Opened a bottle on Valentine's Day with my husband and we both really enjoyed it. It hits the palate with dried fruit and tea leaves. Herbs and olive oil essences linger and it finishes with easy sour cherry. Yummy.
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This wine is great value. Here in Nova Scotia it sells for $11.99,and you don't often find an easy to drink wine for under $12. I love a wine with flavours of pepper and vanilla, which is probably why I found this wine easy to drink. Young fruit wine at a great value.

Very good wine
Deep in colour. Nose is spicy with notes of dry fruit and ripe berries. Well balanced with a good structure and smooth tannins.
