Firm, Youthful, Solid

|TASTING NOTE: Plenty of wineries make a so-called \"Bordeaux blend\" from some combo of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon; with their Laura's Red, Creekside is one of the few Ontario wineries to habitually add Syrah to the mix. This 2016 vintage is floral and toasty with intense coffee, meat, dried herb, blackcurrant and plum notes. Pair it up with peppercorn-crusted burgers heaped with sautéed mushrooms.
