Ever since my Europe trip, I couldn’t stop my love of wine, so I started making my own wine kits and drinking/collecting more ever since.
Grey Cup Sunday!! Bought this Icewine last year in Ottawa while there to watch the Grey Cup, so I brought it out to celebrate having the Stamps in the Grey Cup again this year. Apricot, peach, honey, absolutely superb Icewine, especially including the lower price point. Totally recommend if you’re a fan of Icewines, cause it is definitely sweet! Go Stamps Go! 🐎 🇨🇦 — 4 months ago
Carmen Gran Reserva Merlot. This isn’t a typical Merlot. Kind of a herbal, smoky nose. Very silky and smooth, can’t get much off of it other than blackberry. Got this bottle close to my friends cabin we’ve spent a few summers at, and since he was in town, I opened it to celebrate! — 3 months ago
Five Vineyards by Mission Hill. Trying a wine my friend bought while downtown. Quite smoky, barrel aged quite nicely. I think I’m mainly picking up notes of Cabernet Franc between that, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. First few sips caught me off guard, it just wasn’t what I was expecting at first, but I feel it got better every sip I took. Very smooth with a nice warm finish. — 4 months ago
Vignamaggio Monna Lisa Chianti Classico. Had to try this because I am a big fan of Leonardo da Vinci. That usually doesn’t end well as a reason to choose wine, but this time it lived up to the name! It’s earthy on the nose with a juicy red fruit palate. Perfect for tomato sauce on pizza, or pasta. Deliciously smooth and full bodied. This wine is well worthy of the classic art on its label. — 3 months ago
Palm Cove Moscato. Just wanted a nice cheap sweet wine to have tonight at my friends new apartment. Quite sweet, getting a lot of pear vibes. Would be great alone as desert or with spicy foods. Must say, I am definitely a fan of drinking out on a balcony though! 😂 — 4 months ago
