  1. :

    There is not a lot of malbec grown in Ontario. Here it is blended with merlot to create a lightweight red similar to Valpolicella from Italy; so perfect with pizza maybe chilled slightly. The nose shows raspberry cherry fruit with some earthy tones and a hint of warm spice. The palate is very fruity and light with some soft fresh acidity and very good length. Best 2011 to 2012. Tasted February 2011.

  2. :

    This is a sweet, fairly mild young red with good colour and a fresh, slightly green nose of blackberry, plum and spice. It’s a bit sweet, tart and bitter; but has a juicy freshness that will work with casual food. Good length.

  3. :

    Nose: cedar, currants,
    Taste: dry, lean, firmly structured, lively acidity; tannic finish
