Niagara Peninsula Red Blend 2017

From the Stratus wine dinner — 3 months ago


Stratus Red Blend 2017

This is a young Shiraz from Israel. Showing more like a young Northern Rhone Syrah.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, oak, licorice, light vegetables, light vanilla, tobacco and peppercorn.

Needs time to open up properly. I had it before and this time I gave it 4 hours to open up properly.

Fruity and dry on the palate. Spicy and interesting.

Nice length on the finish with round tannins.

Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with dried Meats.

Aged for 14 months in Oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Weather Report Chardonnay 2016

Famed California winemaker consults on this Niagara project. A successful example of Chard in a broader style - flowing with juicy orchard fruit flavors - ripe pear and apple skin. LOVE this with the La Riopelle de l’Isle. #i4c18 — 3 years ago
