Got this red wine at the SAQ as the wrapper around the bottle caught our eye. Had a pirate kind of feel, tied up around the neck of the bottle with an elastic. Smells like nothing at first, as really too mild. After breathing half-an-hour, it does release cherries, black berries and some mild leather. The mouthfeel is a little too tarty with the yeast. The nose started milder than the taste, but eventually beats it. Still, nothing really good, but a nice packaging. Inked blood along the cork. That’s nice.
