Interesting wine glad I tried it but would not have again. Lacks robustness and was underwhelming. I dont think think this grape will ever be as favourable as the Zinfandel which is modelled after.

A very nice wine. Purchased in St. Pierre a decade ago, this wine aged well and still has a little gas in the tank. Enjoy!

What a super duper wine. Truly an iron fist in a velvet globe comparison. Beautiful weight, smooth finish and long, pleasing finish. 2005 year wines continue to deliver...this still has a lot of life left yet!

Such a brilliant wine that keeps getting better and better with each passing year. This is one of my favourite Canadian wines and have had a bottle each year for our anniversary beginning with the 2005 vintage. I am only missing the 2014!

Picked up this inexpensive CDP with a pack of eggs in St. Pierre et Miquelon a few years back at a grocery store! Lovely nose and beautiful dark fruit flavors, forest floor roots, brambles and barnyard. Great value!!!!

Another spectacular wine from the Duckhorn Wine Company! I was given this bottle for Christmas in 2016 and I think I hit the perfect drinking window is 2020. Intense dark fruit flavours brambles and chocolate. A bold wine! Will have Canvas Back again!

A lovely wine with lots of depth and character from the Haut Medoc. A great value wine for what you are getting. I paid 20 euros at the CIA in St. Pierre for this a few years back. Will buy it again.

Had this in the cellar for a few years and may have left it to long TBH. Rather thin with muted nose/palate incidence. A little better on Day 2 but I wont buy again. Some raspberries....

My first time trying this wine family and I must say I was impressed. Picked it up in St. Pierre eat Miquelon with my Dad in 2014 at the CIA for 34 Euros and was glad I did. It was a great 2nd wine from this classified growth. Sad to see it go and highly recommended!

This was at the end of its drinking life but still enjoyable. Fruit still present and very smooth. My study smelled like a cherry orchard when I opened it. Saved half the bottle for the next night and it was even better. I have a 2015 also but will drink that sooner I think. Love the Citran though. Bought this with Dad in St. Pierre back in 2014. Good memories!

After slumbering for many years in the cellar this beauty has gone gently into the good night. What a beautiful, sublime wine. This is the 2nd wine for Chateau Tertre and it did not disappoint. Beautiful brick red in colour with no discernible tannins. It opened up right away giving off charcoal, Pepsi and cherry on the nose with huge dark fruit (cherries) and dirt on the palate with hints of petrol and brambles on the palate. Drink up, it wont get any better. Lovely wine!

What a special bottle of wine, BCs finest IMHO! Intense dark fruit flavours on the nose and palate. Love the dirt flavour and rough leather with barnyard on the palate. Long, sumptuous finish! As always, a great drop of wine with a successful partnership between BC and France.

Bought this on a school trip to Quebec City 3 years ago and just popped the cork this evening. Delicious spicy nose and smooth on the palate make for a great wine. Love that it is from Provence also, they dont make that many reds. Will buy again for 25 dollars.
