Burnt Ship Bay 2013 Cab/Merlot

Dark in color with a mild nose of dark berries and dark cherries. On the mid palate the wine displays some black berries and black cherries to match the nose. The wine reminds me more of a cab franc. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice firm tannins, some acidity and some dryness. The firm fruit lingers nicely in the mouth. I would give it an 88 or so. For $14.95 it’s a good deal. Available in the Feb 15 Vintage release LCBO number 404939

From the winery’s web site:
This classic Cabernet Merlot blend is loaded with ripe raspberry and cherry characteristics.
A delicious fruit forward, nicely balanced wine with soft and well integrated black cherry, cassis and hints of licorice.
Pair this wine with your favourite grilled and roasted meats: beef, lamb, venison and game are all great matches with this easy going red wine. Big enough mouth feel to match a rare steak and gentle enough on the tannins to handle grilled vegetables.
