WineDiva's Review

Unabashed, potent, muscular.
This organic blend of Merlot with 9% Petit Verdot was grown on sandy clay and gravel soils in the Bordeaux and suggests unabashed aromas of Kirsch and concord grapes, lilacs and chocolate shavings, sarsaparilla and orange zest. It is juicy yet equally opulent with generous purple fruits, oak spices and vanilla. A muscular structure is softened by sweet potent fruit, the finish trails leather and baking spice flavours.
Impressive concentration--delicious.

WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
