Irony Small Lot Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Dark color with a dark cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark cherries to match the nose. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins along with some nice acidity. This is a nice cab, not as fruit forward as some, not as long in the finish as others. I would give it an 88 or so.

From the LCBO web site:
Irony Small Lot Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 —VINTAGES#: 25106
STYLE – Full-bodied & Smooth
This trusted producer of good-value, balanced, flavour-filled wine doesn’t disappoint here. Aromas of dark berry fruit, spice, notions of anise and mint spill from this medium-bodied, heavenly textured gem. There’s a salad bowl of palate-bathing flavours – black bramble berry, ripe mulberry and spice-infused dark, juicy Bing cherry – interlaced with sweet vanilla and toasty bits from seven months in French and American oak persisting through the balanced, complex, lingering aftertaste. Great value, great wine. Score – 4 1/2 Stars (out of 5). (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, May 23, 2014) $21.95
