This wine is one of the house wines available by the glass at the Keg. I have had it many times and enjoy it. I picked it up at the LCBO the other day. The wine is made in the “drink now style”. No decanting needed. Not a hint of bitterness. I would not expect this to keep a long time, nor would I expect it to age overly well. Lovely deep cherry and some vanilla off the oak. All well integrated. The finish is medium with tannins well under control. This is not a fruit forward wine and not as lively as some. This bottle went quickly as so often seems to be the case when it is a good one. We paired it with a pork tenderloin done on the bbq of course! I would give this wine an 89-90. Quite enjoyable and always consistent! This is now an essential so you can get it anytime! No need to rush …

Every time Vintages released this wine, it disappeared from store shelves at lightning speed! So we decided to make it an Essential to ensure that it’s always available and you’re never disappointed. Aged in oak for more than a year, this densely coloured red is packed with intense aromas of black cherry, blackcurrant, cedar, vanilla, and spices. Full-bodied and sweet-centred, this Cabernet will pair beautifully with roasted or grilled red meats.
