Vintages Panel: “Sue-Ann Staff, a fifth-generation grape-grower, is the winemaker and 'Fancy Farm Girl' behind this lifted, perfumed wine. Expect to find suggestions of red plums and currants, with spice notes adding depth and complexity. A fruity, dry, easy-to-enjoy wine. This is a VQA wine”.

4 Stars ...drink now...Oh Canada! – Susan Desjardins, winecurrent.com   
"Grilled herb and red pepper aromas mingle with berry fruit on the nose. The palate offers tasty flavours of ripe berry, cherry and plum, the roasted red pepper replaying with a dash of black pepper. This is a flavourful, approachable red, dry, medium bodied with a pleasing round texture, good balance and tasty finish - stock up. Bring on the crowd and serve with BBQ back ribs"
