Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A ruby red blend of Cabernet and Merlot varietals from famed Prince Edward County. Medium bodied and tart, with juicy mouthfeel. This wine flows like a French kiss. Lively acidity, tart red field berries. Well balanced and integrating 13% ABV. Pair this wine with cottage time, comfort foods, or a night in with a loved one. Perhaps sneak a kiss or two to confirm the label has it right. Tasted 2014 vintage in May 2017. 87 points
