Natalie's Score: 90/100
This terrific, robust Niagara red wine blend over-delivers against its price point. Balanced, elegant and full-bodied: a beautiful blend of Cabernet and Merlot from this Niagara winery. Decant 1-2 hours. Pair with hearty meat dishes.

Reviews and Ratings
|Samer Forzley rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Closed in the beginning, but opens up with a pretty nose. Cassis, cherry, cedar, pine, oak, vanilla, plums,
On the pallet: Loads of cassis, vanilla, cherry, blueberry, plums/prune
Well structured, long finish and well balanced with high acid, nice tannins. Should be paired with food, maybe a braised beef dish?
Good value for the price.
|Andrea Shapiro - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Reif estates Meritage - Cherry, smoke, dark chocolate, stewed fruit and light vanilla. Flavours are very full revealing black cherry, graphite minerals and sweet juicy pie filling notes. A good burger and beef wine. 90 points - tasted November 2018
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of cherry and tobacco notes here, with black fruit skin, a touch of capsicum, spice, oak and crushed rock. A light nose of mushroom after being open for 30 minutes. 90 Points.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of dark fruit, smoke, tobacco and oak. Full bodied, with medium + acidity, and lots of peppery and smoky notes on the palate. More fruit forward on the palate particularly on the finish. Enjoy with grilled meats.
|Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
The nose is greeted by cigar box, clove and dark cherry. This is a fine introduction for the palate-cleansing acidity encompassed by flavours of sour cherry, vanilla and raspberry. A medium-bodied wine with a medium long finish that would pair well with medium rare venison steak.

|Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A solid red with noted Cab Franc influence. Some obvious oaking here with smoke and vanilla fully supporting the power level of the fruit. A touch of tannins here but I still think of this as a "drink-now" wine as the overall power of the fruit is declining as always is the case. Drink now - 2020
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Cherry, plum, tobacco, and basil. Tangy and savoury. would go well with herb and garlib rubbed roast pork loin.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A nice rich, balanced, bordeaux blend made in Niagara. A bit too sweet for my palate, med structure and med finish.
