This red wine is a staple in most Montreal deps. It’s usually available in both a 750mL and 500mL bottle. To be honest, it often gets poorly rated on professional wine review websites, but I actually like this wine.
This wine is made from a blend of grape varieties from different harvests (from different years). It’s a bit spicy, so I wouldn’t call this a sweet wine by any means– and it also doesn’t taste like rubbing alcohol, so that’s a bonus. On the label, they describe the wine with aromas of raspberry and plum. I find this accurate, but they’re subtle aromas.
Ultimately, I think this wine is good for people who like a little kick. For me, the first glass took a little getting used to, but really, it’s not a bad wine. I lost my other notes on this wine, so I don’t remember if it was a “short finish”, or if it was “medium-bodied” or anything like that … Sorry! Would I drink this again? Yes, but I wouldn’t drink it alone – I’d probably eat it with a heavy lentil or bean dish (or some other dish that typically needs a bit of spicing up).
