Wandering though the LCBO I saw this one at a price I couldn’t resist. Dark in color with a nice plummy nose, the merlot is definitely present. On the mid palate there’s some nice plum notes to match the nose. No the medium length finish the cab franc kicks in with some nice firm acidity, some tannins and some nice dryness. It’s not a bad wine for the price. I paired it with lamb chops and it held it’s own. I would give it an 87-88. Not a bad wine for the price.

13th Street Red Palette 2017 — VINTAGES#: 249458
13th Street Red Palette 2017
STYLE – Medium-bodied & Fruity
Just about two-thirds Merlot and one-third Cabernet Franc, the 2017 vintage of this perennially popular bistro-style red offers ripe berry fruit, violets, black pepper and a touch of cedar. Not overly hefty, it’ll make a nice warm-weather sipping red and will suit herbed meaty pizza or barbecued chicken. (Vintages panel, March 2018)
