Wine tasting @ Inniskillin, Niagara on the Lake 🇨🇦 — 3 days ago
On this Sunday night I have opened the 2017 Hermann J. Wiemer Cabernet Franc from Seneca Lake of the Finger Lakes in New York.
On the nose I get the red fruits of strawberry, raspberry sauce, cherry, roasted jalapeño, herbs, a vegetable note, smoaky oak and graphite.
On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, red currant, green bell pepper, mint, spice, herbs and minerality.
This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy grippy tannins that leads into a long red fruit finish. I wish everyone a wonderful week ahead and a safe and prosperous one. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 5 days ago

Nose of highway rest areas. ( as in pure diesel). My daughter didn’t even want to try it. But after some mild coaxing she did. Crisp, zesty, expressive- some pineapple and lemon/ lime zest. Touch, just a touch of sugar on the tail end. Marvelous wine for $15. — 16 days ago
Wine tasting @ Inniskillin, Niagara on the Lake 🇨🇦 Very interesting and different flavor while very sweet for me. — 3 days ago
A nice Niagara Chardonnay. Quite full, but not overly rich if that makes sense. You get a bit of sensation from the barrel fermentation but there is no apparent oak, just body. Good acid but one smidge less cohesive on the finish than I’d like. Still nice. — 15 days ago
Complimentary pour by the general manager for us at the end of the evening, cool Cabernet Franc/Merlot/Petit Verdot/Dornfelder blend, would have guessed WA Syrah if blinded. Grapes are ripasso and appasimento in style/production, super cool, love to see Canadian winemakers experimenting like this...
If you happen to be in Cambridge, ON, enjoy a meal at the Cambridge Mill, you will be gastronomically happy you stopped. — 23 days ago
