I had promised a wine review and WOW this one is a WINNER!
I'll let you read what the LCBO had to say about it first:
Tasting Note - Rich and polished, with almost gushing raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit that's harnessed by suave toast, spice and licorice notes. Long, well-rounded finish has nice buried acidity. Drink now through 2010. Score - 91. (James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com, Web Only, 2008)
OK, leave right now and get a bottle (or two) of this wine. We have a great guy that works in the Vintages section of our local LCBO. My Big Man really wanted to try a "Malbec" and so he recommended this wine. Ugh, fantastic, the taste, smell, everything! After each sip I swear could hear Susana softly singing my name begging me to take another sip!
This wine would be fantastic all on it's own just as a treat while spending some quality relaxo time by yourself. Would be perfect split between friends.....save it for the one's you really like!
