Wow. Amazing wine. Had with sirloin and shrimp off the grill, roasted potatoes and salad. Deep purple color a- almost black. Amazing aromas of bluberries, vanilla, oak. Smooth mouth feel with a long finish. No bitterness. A great balance of tannins and fruit. Just a wonderful pairing with the dinner.
A great bottle. Had after dinner. After The Merryvale 2003 Oakville Grade reserve. Maybe a slight downgrade, but not much. Tight. Popped and poured out of the wine fridge. Opened up nicely and should have decanted earlier. Dark purple color. Dark fruit smell of cherries and blackberries. Long finish with no bitterness.
