Dark color with a mild cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely cherry notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice smooth tannins, and acidity along with some nice dryness. A lovely varietal cab. Very food friendly. Not a big wine, the LCBO describes it as full bodied and smooth … I’d agree. I would give it an 88 or so. Ought to be capable of holding it’s own for a year or two as well.
