Dark in color with a lovely mild nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely red cherries along with some cassis. The wine has some smooth tannins on it’s medium length finish. We paired it with a rack of lamb and it went perfectly. I would give the wine a solid 89. Yumm. I would consider this a drink now wine.
From the LCBO web site:
Aromas of cassis, cola and woodsmoke with an herbal undertone. Unabashedly Californian, it is round and generous with big fruit and a sensual touch of spice on the close. This calls for some superior cuts of meat, prepared the way God intended – grilled on a barbecue while wearing a Stetson. All joking aside, this is another stellar wine from Frei.
