Wine Review: This dark purple wine opens with a spicy blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, easy to drink, and has fruit forward black current flavors along with a little black licorice and spice. The finish is dry, but brief. This would pair nicely with your favorite burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 Memsie red has a dark cherry/purple colour. There are obvious blackcurrant, plum and spice characters dominating the nose. The palate is fresh with voluminous and forward, spice, berry and plum flavours obvious. These flavours are complimented by hints of sweet oak. The wine has great length with a persistent, smooth and clean finish. Ready to drink now to 2010 with a variety of food styles including risotto and red meats.
