This is the first of several benchmark wines I will be trying over the next several months. Lots of pepper and spice. Well integrated tannins with a lingering finish. Lovely.

I expected a lot more from this one... albeit I'm consuming it in bed at a bed & breakfast in northern Quebec, at 8:30 pm and trying not to fall asleep after a long day of skiing. Just a bit too light, too tart, too acidic.

Drinkable but uninteresting CH. Inexpensive and wasn't expecting more.

Dark fruit, wintry spices, roasted meat, stony minerality, full body, young tannic bite. Delicious with lamb.
