  • Malivoire, Gamay, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, 2013, 12.5% abv, C$17.95

    … Gamay. This wine is pretty with a medium ruby shade and light legs; it looks like pomegranate juice. On the nose it’s young and full of ripe red fruit – pomegranate, field berry, strawberry and raspberry – with sweet clove and cedar frond. The palate is dry but offers an off dry feel with medium minus soft tannins which would make this simply…

  • Cabernet Sauvignon, Mount Veeder Winery, Napa Valley, 2011, 14% abv

    … shipping costs and thus, the price of the wine. Sounds good to me. The wine is deep ruby with big legs and on the nose it’s loaded with blackberry, currant, black cherry, cedar and tobacco leaf, baking spices and strong minerality. The blackberry fairly leaps from the glass. On the palate it’s dry but offers an impression of residual sugar. The acidity…
