What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
We’ve noticed that September chill creeping slowly into the air this week, and as such all we’re craving is red wine! Find some of our favourites from Summer Wine Jam below & sip on.
Lakeview Cellars Merlot Reserve 2013
Tasting Note: This Merlot from Lakeview Cellars is a full-bodied Niagara wine that shows rich blueberry and almond notes, with a hint of chocolate covered espresso beans (via: Lakeview Wine Co.)
Find it at the winery / order it online for $29.95 here!
Guilty Men Red
Tasting Note: clear ruby with garnet rim; cherry and cranberry with earthy note and a touch of spice; dry, medium body; savoury berry and spice flavour, balanced acidity and medium/ long finish (via LCBO.com)
Find it for $15.95 at the LCBO here!
Candor Lot 7 Zinfandel
Tasting Note: This Candor Lot 7 Zinfandel is a bit of a throwback in that it’s crafted using the now almost-forgotten tradition of multi-vintage blending. The result is a wine with black fruit, fig, dates, cherry and blackberry aromas, and with melted chocolate tones adding complexity. Soft and generous with excellent balance and structure, and a long, spicy finish. (Vintages panel, April 2016)
