Pelee Island Merlot Cabernet 2006

Date October 12, 2008 | Chuck | Canada & Red Blend & Red Wine

This VQA wine has a medium bodied palate with moderate fruit from the merlot, but leans toward the oak barrel with prominent notes of vanilla.  The menthol is a nice addition from the cabernet side of the blend.
If you were wondering, the bird on the label is the American Goldfinch.

Misterio Malbec 2007

Date August 2, 2008 | Chuck | Argentina & Malbec & Red Wine

The destination (Argentina) was right, but this wine wasn't really what I was expecting. The heavy violet aroma and tastes were overkill and not very characteristic, they also tell us the grapes could have used more time to ripen.
The plum and oak notes were nice but the bitter floral finish put me off.
Tip: tulip glass, slightly chilled
At a Glance
Taste violet (bitter floral), black plum, oak
Smell violet, black plum, oak
Food bbq red meat
Sweetness extra dry
