    February 7, 2020 - My last bottle of many since 2016...already great but even better!! An excellent vintage...delicious! Not too sweet, not too heavy, not too powerful...smooth and perfect balance of fruit and spices. Really enjoyable. Well-done with an excellent QPR. 92+

    June 29, 2017 - Garnet-crimson; dark chocolate, black cherries, blueberries, earth, floral; off-dry, cherry/berry, cocoa, toffee, medium body, good acidity, nice heat, grainy tannins, nice finish.
    Fruity, cocoa and toffee flavours with noticeable Cab Sauv component. Light with not a lot of structure but balanced and enjoyable. Would buy again.

    December 17, 2016 - This fortified wine is made with Merlot, Cabernets, and Shiraz grapes for Niagara Peninsula barrel-aged for six years. It is not your classic red Porto style dessert wine; rather it is a lighter, fragrant style on its own.

    Aromas of red fruit jams, pecan pie, and oxidized wine. The mouth feels surprising crisper than expected due to a good acidity, and the Bordeaux blend structure shows through the silky sweet flavours of caramel toffee, roated nuts, and fruit cake.
