Private Reserve True North 100% Canadian 2017 750ml

As always the term reserve, in Canada, has no specific designation … This one is dark in color with a nice dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice dark berries, some mocha and the like. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice soft velvety tannins and some vibrant acidity. I struggle with this wine, it’s not a bad wine, in a lot ways a good wine, but for the price? Ya that’s where I have an issue. I would give it an 87-88 maybe even lifting to a level of an -88. We paired it one night with a strip long, and the second night with a bacon wrapped filet and it was fine. I guess your getting the overall impression … Would I buy another, well I guess you figured that out too … I can figure out better wines for $26.95, this was an impulse buy on the way out of the grocery store. From the winery’s sales shop:

Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc from Canada

A medium to full bodied red blend with plenty of dark fruits, spice and oak aromas and flavours.$26.95
