Dark in color with a lovely nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some deep lovely red cherry and cassis flavors. Quite intense. There’s even a little black berries coming through likely from the Malbec. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice tannins, dryness and acidity that linger nicely in the mouth. I would give this a solid 89-90 and for the $$s this is a good deal!

Smooth, dark, and generous Cabernet (with 12% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot in support) gushing with cassis, smoky oak, and spice. Big-boned and packed with flavour, it’s got the stuff to stand up to pepper steaks or bison burgers. (VINTAGES panel, Oct. 2013) $15.95
