    A hip of wine from Hidden Bench

    … earlier, June 2014 note: “The richest Terroir Caché to date, making use of its barrel in judicious but never obnoxious ways. Huge Bench wine, needs 10 years for sure. From my earlier, April 2014 note: “No other Niagara red and for sure no alternative Peninsula Bordeaux blend exists in such a vacuum of dichotomous behaviour. Act one is an out…

    NIAGARA’S MOST CONSISTANT ‘SUPER STAR’ RED

    … The Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot) was one of the first red wine successes in Niagara.

The proprietor, Tony Dupre, was known to offer excellent food and great wine. This particular Soave is crisp, pale, with hints of flower – honeysuckle and citrus – lemon.
