|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
The iconic Canadian band, The Tragically Hip, teamed up with Stoney Ridge head winemaker Jeff Hundertmark to produce a premium Ontario (Bordeaux-style) red blend worthy of carrying the bands name and legendary album artwork and title that millions of Canadians fell in love with back in the 1990s and to this day hold dear to their hearts. Fully Completely Grand Reserve Red is a blend of 48% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon all from a single vineyard on the Niagara Peninsula. The nose shows dark cherry, plum, pepper, clove, cedar brush, and graphite. Great structure and acidity, with firm tannins that benefit from a two hour decant to soften. The palate shows great texture whilst retaining that refreshing characteristic of a food-friendly Ontario (Bordeaux) blend. This fine wine would be terrific when paired with grilled flat iron steak, beef rib eye roast, or venison tenderloin. Decant two hours and enjoy 2016-2025. Pre-order your bottles winery-direct and receive them in time for holiday gifting to all those Hip fans in your life. Tasted November 2016. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
PS: Also available in 1.5L magnums...the ultimate collectors gift!

This wine does not stay on the shelves at the LCBO. It sells out within hours.
Produced at Stoney Ridge Estate Winery in Niagara, it is a collaboration between head winemaker Jeff Hundertmark and the members of the well known iconic Canadian band, The Tragically Hip.
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Fruity, plum, dark cherry, oak, created in the traditional Bordeaux style with a medium, dry cherry finish. Age for 5 years or decant now to even out the tannins and serve with steak or burgers.
