LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: Sourced from the clay, shale and limestone of the South Bay Vineyard, which was first planted in 2011, this offers up a wealth of ripe fruit. Look for black plums, blueberry and blackberry in particular, alongside peppery spice notes. Juicy and still a bit tight - lots more to come from this one - it will be perfect for grilled meats or (if you can wait) a hearty meat stew this fall. (Vintages panel, March 2018) Price $ 29.95
