Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Canadian Golf Legend, turned Ontario wine ambassador and winery owner, Mike Weir, produces some very accessible and tasty VQA wines. The 2010 Cabernet Merlot is a blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc sourced from the Niagara Peninsula. The nose shows sauteed peppers, plum, dark chocolate, clove, and dried herbs. Dry with fine integrated tannins, refreshing acidity, and a dark fruit and pepper finish, this aged red is in its prime and ideally suited for enjoying with lamb chops with Moroccan sauce, garlic-rosemary pork tenderloin, or baked goat cheese dip. Decant 30 minutes prior to service and enjoy over the next year. Tasted April 2016. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
