A Mixed Bag in Toronto on a Wednesday (Jay's Place - Toronto, On): Killer showing from this humble wine. It pours deep and opaque with no bricking. From the first pour this was deep, polished and rich with notes of cassis, blackberry, aged sweet balsamic, tar, brown sugar, and hints of caramel. For whatever reason this reminded me of the polish of a Sandrone Barolo or a Tuscan Merlot. The palate is lush with abundant tannin and a medium finish carried on dark fruit. The big caveat here was that after a couple of hours of air this became extremely caramelized and butterscoth driven. A big detractor for most at the table.
