Deep ruby in color; on the nose I detected strawberry, oak, and something else I recognized but can't quite pinpoint. In the mouth it's smooth, well balanced and full bodied. It does benefit from a few minutes of air in the glass. Winemaker's tasting notes suggest pairing it with spicy food... I found it paired very nicely with Cajun-style shrimp alfredo.



Tasting Notes:

Our 6.330 blend 2008 harvest has an intense and deep red colour. Complex to the nose, this wine combines fruity aromas such as cranberry, cassis and plum with sweet spices such as vanilla and finishing with some toasted notes. When in the mouth, it is full-bodied with an intensely fruity flavour and a long persistent ending.
