Inky dark in color with a black berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with black berries screaming through. While this is a blend with Cab, the shiraz is the dominant flavor. You could easily close your eyes and not know there was any cab … On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins, and some acidity. There’s no pepper on this one at all. Alcohol is well under control. This is a good, softer, fruit forward shiraz. The LCBO describe it as full bodied and smooth, I think that’s pretty accurate. I would give it an -88.
