Wow! Wow! This is definitely entering the race for my wine of the year… absolutely NO DOUBT about that. I have been obsessed with this wine for days now. This is as close to a Grand Cru Burgundy as it gets. Rich but with finesse, powerful but delicate, precise and balanced, this incredible wine seems to be everything at the same time, in a very good way. The earthy nose announces the Old World approach early on, followed by aromas of raspberry jam, leather and pipe tobacco. The palate offers concentrated flavours of cassis and plum, violet and mushrooms. The finish is incredibly long and complex with notes of minerality, baking spices, dark cocoa, and a splash of caramel. This wine is slowly entering its prime but will get even better over the next five years. Expect to hear about this one for a long time, this is truly a "World Class" wine. One of the best wines in Canada for $36. 96 cases produced.
