    January 1, 2011 - this was superb, much better than the previous bottle I had of the same vintage before. Subtle spices, dark fruit, not too impressive bouquet, but excellent length and soft tannins. Kept improving even after being open for 3+ hours. A real hidden gem of a vineyard. Unfortunately my last bottle of this and likley no more to be found anywhere.

    March 2, 2010 - Improved after being open for about an hour.Leather, cherry aroma. Palate of black currant, cherry, some spice on the finish. Nice body and decent finish. I have it on good authority it can age well over 10+years. Have 1 bottle left so I will let you know in a few years.

    August 18, 2009 - Very impressed again. I cannot think of a Ontario producer who I have been as impressed with as much as these 02 Bordeaux Blends. Better with food, popped and poured. Some time left.

    January 11, 2009 - One of the best value new world bordeaux-style blends I have tasted. This vintage was held back and only recently released. It is drinking beautifully right now - a much more restrained old-world style but still plenty of heft. Deep purple color with lots of plum, earth and spice. Alcohol much more balanced then many other new world wines.
