Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays expressive dark cherries along with some plummy notes. On the medium length finish the wine is nice and dry with some nice complexity lingering in the mouth along with noticeable oak. This is a lovely wine. The complexity and dryness are subtle and best appreciate with food. That said this is a very food friendly wine. We paired it with meat lasagna and it went well. I would give it an 89 or so. Not in the LCBO, we bought it at the winery for $35. Fielding are continuing to do some great wines, if your in Niagara, be sure and stop by to get some of these great wines that never make it to the LCBO.

Deep red/purple in color with complex aromas of dark chocolate, dried plum, toasted nuts, smoked bacon and blackberries. Well balanced with great weight and richness on the palate, good mouthfeel and a long finish.
