(2014) Dense, crimson stuff from Ontario with lots of ripe black fruit appeal - cassis and plum with a touch of tobacco. The palate has sweetness and juiciness - this is like a big spoonful of blackcurrant jam, dipped in a pot of espresso, finishing with sweetness and still enough structure.
(2006) A Bordeaux blend produced only in exceptional vintages, this has minty black fruit and a touch of silage on the nose, with real spice, flesh, grip and structure on the palate.
(2006) Aged in American oak and with 15% Cabernet Franc in the blend, this is a big, spicy, crushed velvet style of wine, with masses of raisiny sweetness and a liquoricy, mouth-filling finish.
(2006) Spice, cracked pepper and schisty minerals join with a cherry bubblegum character in an intriguing wine. Finely honed blue/black fruit in the palate is lip-smacking and delicious.
(1999) Big, fat, smoky-bacon nose with very rustic but powerful earthy berry fruit. There's a hint of sweetness on the nose, but this wine has a robust and chunky character with a liquorice and chocloate depth. On the palate it is slightly disappointing, the depth and concentration of the nose not quite following through, but that is relative: this still has a rugged, fruity, very forceful personality that shines through. The finish is a little short, cut off abruptly by a lemon acidity, but all-in-all this unusual wine delivers a lot of pleasure, power and interest. This bottle was a gift from a Canadian visitor so I'm not sure of availability - but well worth looking out for.
