STRATUS RED 2013

6

VQA Niagara-on-the-Lake

TASTING NOTE: As fans of Stratus winemaker

J-L Groux well know, when it comes to blending, he

is an unquestioned master. This is the top wine from

Stratus, and the 2013 contains Merlot, Cabernet

Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Sangiovese,

Malbec and Tannat. Savoury and long with great

balance and integration. This is ripe and dense, with

raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, baking spice,

plum, cedar and polished tannins. Enjoy tonight with

rack of lamb or roast beef, or set it aside (if you

can resist it) and follow its evolution for 8+ years.

NOMAD WANDERLOVE 2013

6

VQA Niagara Lakeshore

(Hinterbrook Estate Wines)

TASTING NOTE: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

and Merlot were aged for nearly three years in French

oak prior to this wine’s bottling. There’s a notable

vanilla/spice/mocha aromatic component that tips the

hat to the wood, alongwith core blueberry, plum and

cassis notes. On the medium-plus bodied palate the

oak is a bit less evident, and the wine leans more on

blackberry, dark chocolate, plum and blackcurrant

notes, with a modest leafy component and light tannin

coming through on the medium finish. Score:
