Peninsula Ridge Cabernet Merlot VQA

imageLCBO#: 261305
Price: $14.95
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Peninsula Ridge Estates Winery
Year: 2013

This red wine blend is composed of Cabernet and Merlot, and it shows in the red colour… being not as dark like Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet notes are present with tobacco and leather, but much milder. Lots of berries all around. Raspberries, cherries, blackberries, etc. Medium-light tannins and dryness. Goes down well and is nice with food. A pretty good blended red wine with a classy look.

Rating: 3.6/5

Mike Wear The Underdog White Wine VQA

Price: $13.95
Made in: Beamsville, Ontario, Canada
By: Mike Weir Wine

This blended white wine from Canada’s golf player Mike Weir gives out aromas of white grapes, light alcohol and hints of pears. The taste is much more milder, as in watery. Gets better as it warms up, so if you like warmer white wines, you might like this, as nothing is really offensive. Decent fruity sweetness, alcohol, dryness and sourness. All light, but there. Very nice label and an average light blended white wine. Just hard to pay full price for it.

Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon

This blended white Ontarian wine has aromas of pears, white grapes (sourness), with notes of alcohol and burnt wood. The sourness does show in the beginning of the taste, but the sweetness does come in to help things. Alcohol is still present here, but nothing too offensive. An overall easy-drinking white wine for get-togethers with friends. Fruity and refreshing for summer.
