Natalie's Score: 89/100
An incredibly great price for such a juicy, full-bodied, full-flavoured red wine blend of Cabernet and Merlot! Fleshy ripe black plums and berries on the nose of this robust, dry Niagara red wine. Pair with grilled meats and barbecued anything.
Cabernet Merlot food pairings: Italian-style pastas, grilled meats, pizza, grilled vegetables, stuffed peppers.

Ripe red fruits with hints of wood. Earthy and spicy on the palate with smooth tannins. Licorice and leather flavours on the finish. Pairs well with hard cheeses and red meat.
|Andrea Shapiro - Andrea's Wine Cellar rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby colour, medium plus intensity aromas of dark cherry, super ripe red strawberry, chocolate covered cherries and toasty oak notes. Flavours of grilled cherries, dark plums, roasted red peppers. medium plus acidity, body and tannins with a full body. There is some tannin added by the wood. Some interesting and evolving flavours present with a bit of layering. Pair with grilled beef ribs, pork chops and lamb chops. 89 points. Team tasting November 19, 2017

|Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Red fruit on the nose. Medium bodied (lots of Merlot here) and dry on the palette. Would be a crowd pleaser as would be a good balance between the light-bodied and full-bodied crowd.
