Another one from my meetup group at Earls. Dark in color with cherries (from the cab) and plums (from the Merlot) coming through. On the mid pallet the cab is dominant with cherries coming through. There’s also a hint of strawberries coming through from the Zinf. On the medium length finish the wine displays some noticeable mint notes along with some acidity and some nice dryness. I would give it an 88-89. Not in the LCBO but $19.95 at the BC liquor store 🙂
From the BC liquor Store’s web site: The 2011 vintage uses varietals (Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot) aged separately before contributing to the blend, aging in oak barrels. Bright and red plums find a nice dark chocolate finish with some cinnamon, black pepper and anise. The wine is dry in style, medium bodied, and has ripe tannins. Enjoy this fruit forward wine alone or with grilled steak.
