CATTAIL CREEK SERIES CABERNET MERLOT 2012, VQA

“Cattail Creek is a reliable Niagara Peninsula producer that’s under the radar for too many people.  Try this well made Cabernet-Merlot blend, which is built for food, with lighter red-meat dishes, pork, chicken and turkey.  the flavours are solid right through, the acidity is well-balanced and fresh, and the tannins light.”

SMALL LOT SERIES RIESLING ICEWINE 2012, VQA

“Liquid gold from one of Niagara’s premium, family-owned Riesling producers, it’s their first Riesling icewine. Fabulous and in limited supply; only 25 cases produced. Buckwheat honey, grilled pineapple and wisps of truffle on the nose, it bathes the palate with a glorious gusher of treacle-coated nectarine and lemon yoghurt garnished with good acidity. This is creamy, dreamy, fully flavoured and textured, balanced and beautiful. Not cloying, the warming, monumental finish is stunning.  4.5 Stars”

CATTAIL CREEK SERIES CABERNET MERLOT 2012, VQA (LCBO NUMBER 344135)

“This nifty red blend—42% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon—jumps from the glass with aromas of sprigs of savory herbs interwoven with field berry fruit and tobacco. Rich ripe fruit—black and red currant—coat the palate along with a lick of still-resolving tannin. There’s a solid line of acidity throughout and it ends with a flourish of red cherry and lip-smacking tang.   4 Stars”

CATTAIL CREEK SERIES CABERNET MERLOT 2010, VQA (LCBO No. 344135)

“From Niagara Peninsula’s Four Mile Creek sub-region, this is a very attractive red blend, in which the flavours are consistent and persistent right through the palate. It’s well balanced, deep-textured but refreshing and has moderate tannins.  Drink this with many red meat dishes, from roasted beef to grilled lamb.  12.5 percent alcohol; $14.95 (344135)”
