2009 Thirty Bench Red
$24.00 per bottle
Deep purple with a rich bouquet of black cherry, black currant, black pepper, vanilla extract and smoke. This medium-bodied wine has rich, juicy flavours of black fruits, vanilla and cedar. Ripe black fruits and black tea notes linger through on the finish.
90 points - "Mostly merlot, along with cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon, this medium full-bodied blend deals out a full house of flavours, including dark berries, plum, vanilla, cedar and spice. Dry, tea-like tannins find a counterpoint in lively, mouthwatering acidity on the finish." Beppi Crosariol, Globe and Mail on-line, September 29, 2011
