Solid Chenin! Aromas of slight toast and white pear leads to a palate of honeyed pear and a touch of candied lemon peel. Coupled with a Cinq à Sept at a wonderful art gallery space (Barbara Edwards Contemporary Project Space). — 2 months ago
Aromas of prune and raisin with a touch of leather dominate. Flavours start in the realm of dark cherry, then move through stewed red fruits. Tannin is a little grippy as it’s still young, but with a bit of air or age, it’ll smooth out nicely. — 10 months ago
The post says Chardonnay, but this is definitely Pinot Noir. Not sure why I can’t find it. In any case, pale ruby colour, and wonderful cherry and plum notes on the nose. Cherry and a touch of spice on the palate, minimal tannin. A great wine to celebrate a final moving-in! — 4 months ago
While I like this wine, my biggest issue is the disconnect between the nose and the palate. The aromas are very barnyard and pyrazine, while the palate carries lovely cherry and blackberry notes. Relatively little tannin, and less peppery than I was expecting for a Lemberger. Still, enjoyable and worth a try for how odd it is in Ontario! — 10 months ago
