It's an all round player - fruity, full-bodied and smooth with little acidity and tannin. It pairs well with pretty much everything, including beef, chicken and salmon. It's a good wine to bring to any gatherings. The price point is reasonable for a vintage wine - C$22.

Not as dark as most cabs; tastes like a fruity blend.

Raspberry, blackberry, mulled spices with a hint of white pepper. Finished nicely with more berry flavors.

Nose is slightly pungent. Mellow black fruit and leather with medium acidity in the finish.
