Dark in color with a lovely nose of dark berries. On the mid pallet the wine matches the nose with some nice black berries coming through along with some nice chocolate and mocha. On the medium length finsih the wine displays some nice tannins, dryness and peppery notes. I would give this wine a 90. it`s a varietal Bordeaux at a good price.

By the way if you hate the new LCBO search function like I do. You can use the old site info from the old link.

Tasting Note
A big, ripe and juicy wine packed with black fruit notes and laced with acidity. The tannins offer a contrast to the fruitiness, bringing balance and structure. This is an impressive wine, the smoky aftertaste bringing out the wood aging. Special Designation: Editor’s Choice. Score – 91. (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, May 2013)
