    September 2, 2014 - This is a beautiful, inexpensive, wine that in my experience never let's you down. I only wish the NLC carried it like the LCBO. Will keep buying this when the opportunity presents itself. Vibrant!

    May 27, 2014 - Just too disjointed with noticeable alcohol on the nose and palate. 14.5%

    January 11, 2014 - Rosemary, thyme, sage, marjoram, and fresh basil, assorted olives, Mediterranean seasonings, and garrigue on the intense bouquet. Drinks like it smells, along with espresso notes. Gripping and acidic.

    January 10, 2014 - Very dusty mineral nose, cassis, tobacco, hint of capsicum. Concentrated but lively cassis fruit. Spicy finish.

    December 27, 2013 - Jammy, simple, and sweet. Pleasant but lacks structure. The bright berry-like flavors remind me of Granache more than Cabernet. The fruit has a tangy quality that I'm not sure I could have identified as Cabernet if I had tasted it blind. A decent sweet and fruity picnic style wine.

    Edit: the second bottle I tried tasted much better after a resealed bottle was refrigerated overnight, with more body to the fruit. So I suspect this could benefit from decanting.
