Dark in color with a lovely red cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the finish with some lovely red cherry fruits, but hang on this wine lives in it’s finish. On the medium to long finish the wine displays some firm tannins, bright acidity, some nice dryness and a hint of pepper. There’s a good amount of complexity in this wine. It’s a bit young and there is even a hint of greenness to the wine. I could give it an 89-90. Very nice indeed and I would suggest it will age nicely too. Yumm. For now be sure and serve it with hearty meals or you won’t be tasting them. The LCBO say the style is full bodied and firm and I would heartily agree!

Victor Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 — VINTAGES#: 438515
STYLE – Full-bodied & Firm
From the Victor (to you) go the spoils. This is a big, chunky, fruit-forward Cabernet showing cassis, blueberry, cedar and vanilla with a suggestion of spun sugar. The tannins are ripe yet substantial and supportive, and lend a chewy, savoury quality to the palate. (VINTAGES panel, May 2015) $21.95
