WineDiva's Review

Ruby, juicy, slick.
The family heirloom known as Covert Farms, is a 650-acre multi-functional estate that was established in 1959 at McIntyre Bluff.
Ignoring the trend of pale and silvery pinks, Covert Farms delivers their version, which is bright ruby red. Made predominantly from Merlot, it also has 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Syrah in the blend. Organic certified it was soaked on skins for 9 hours and aged on lees in stainless for 4 months. Fresh notes of cranberry juice, raspberries and concord grapes are layered with honey, orange blossoms and cedar chips. It's off-dry, juicy and has a boozy edge, the texture is slick with good intensity. Flavours of charred rhubarb and cherry pit dominate the palate.
