Taste it Again : Rockway 2012 Meritage, Small Lot20 Apr 2018
- Category: Lost & Found / Taste it Again
(November 17, 2017) ... A great year for reds in Ontario, but maybe it's time to start pulling them out and giving them a go, just to see what is really happening in those bottles. This Rockway blend started off with nice spice and dark fruit on the nose and developed oak and spice to compliment on the palate; but those tannins seem to be quite aggressive and even at a respectable 13.8% the alcohol seems a little hot on the nose ... In the glass the fruit degrades quickly leaving behind oaky and spicy character ... is this a feature of 2012 wines? More research is necessary.
