Susana Balbo Signature Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2016

Wakefield Jaraman Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 
LCBO #142398 $24.95

At release, the wine has a deep crimson red colour to the centre with a youthful purple hue to the edges. There are lifted aromas of dark cherry fruit along with subtle choc-mint and a hint of eucalypt.  On the palate, this is a rich, full-bodied wine with intense flavours of cassis and blackberry fruit along with attractive oak characters of cigar box and tobacco leaf.  Overall, the wine is well balanced with complex, well-integrated, elegant tannins providing structure and an intense, persistent length to the finish.

91 Pts & Gold & Exceptional – tastings.com, June 11, 2019

“Ruby color. Aromas and flavors of menthol-mint, kirsch, dark chocolate, wild berries, and wet stone with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and an effortless, interesting, medium-long finish displaying notes of blueberry, vanilla, and cinnamon with light oak flavor. A feisty and herbaceous cabernet with style for days and instant appeal.”

Chateau de Nages - Vieilles Vignes Rosé 2018

Chateau de Nages Vieilles Vignes Rosé 2018 
LCBO #496919 $19.95

Peach skin colour.  Nose of lively, fresh red fruits (strawberry, grenadine, currant), floral notes and subtle soft spices.  Taste is velvety and rich, with vivid fruit flavours and a remarkably refreshing mineral finish.

91 Pts – Jeb Dunnuck, March 27, 2019

“The flagship rosé of the estate is the 2018 Costières de Nîmes Vieilles Vignes, a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, and 10% Cinsault. Light salmon-colored, it has a Bandol rosé-like bouquet of salty seabreeze, fennel, citrus, and light cherry characteristics. It’s geared for the dinner table with its salinity and minerality as well as its focused texture. It’s a beautiful, serious rosé to drink any time over the coming 6-12 months. “
