Thirty Bench 2007 Red
You’ve heard about the 2007 vintage in Ontario, so I won’t inundate you with all the accolades like “wow”, “best ever”, and “blockbuster” … but I will tell you that I have found another for you. This Thirty Bench is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Cabernet Franc (55%) and Merlot (5%) aged one year in both French and American oak. Now that we have the technical details out of the way, we can focus on the important part of this wine – the taste. Hold it, before we rush to the taste, bear with me for a moment, let’s give it the old sniff test: blackberry, licorice, cranberry, black cherry, raspberry and vanilla oak – now that really does sound inviting, so let’s dive right in. Supple and smooth with plum, blackberry, cassis, chocolate, lovely fruit flavours with tasty vanilla notes … it’s a wine that keeps you coming back for sip after sip after sip. It’ll also makes you wonder how many bottles you can get through in one sitting, if you pace yourself correctly I mean. Another awesome ’07. Price: $24.00 – Rating: *****
