Stunning black cherry, black plum and dried blackberry notes with spice, tobacco, dried flowers, black tea, and sassafras. 92 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Very dark garnet with aromas of ripe dark cherries and mocha. Satiny smooth and delicious with echoes of dark berries, mocha and eucalyptus. Enjoy with Prosciutto and Risotto Parmesano. A great example of this varietal.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep purple colour with a ruby hue. Cassis, blueberry, dark skinned plum, blueberry, prune, smoke, blueberry yogurt. On the palate there is lots of dark berry fruit, full bodied, medium minus tannins, vanilla and coffee notes. Full, rustic and delicious. A perfect pair for hard cheeses and braised venison stew.
90 points. July 2017
|Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Lots of ripeness to the dark fruit offered here, noted oak use also. An uncharacteristic level of sweetness. Starts with this sweet note evolves to a dry middle and back to some sweetness on the finish.
