Price: $14.95
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Pelee Island Winery
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Not sure why, but was not expecting much from this one. The label is quite nice though. Does not look like a Pelee Island wine. It does smell decent, but after lots of breathing. Soft leather and tobacco notes. The taste is really the problem. Starts off pretty sweet, but then gets quite acidic with some vinegar taking over. Hard to taste the berries. A little to wet as well, lacking tannins. Gets better with lots of time, but nothing to save this one.
