Pelee Island Monarch Vidal VQA

LCBO#: 393405
Price: $11.45
Made in: Ontario, Canada
By: Pelee Island Vineyard Inc.
Year: 2015

This Ontario Vidal has pear, apple notes with sweetness from the grapes. The taste is quite sweet with the fruits and alcohol is noticeable. A slight dryness comes and help to kill the syrupy aspect of this white wine. Yeast lingers on the tongue. Still, a little too sweet overall to enjoy completely. Exactly like their Monarch Red we did last year, way too rich to be a good one.

Rating: 2.3/5

Beaulieu Vineyard Coastal Estates Cabernet Sauvignon

imageLCBO#: 569871
Price: $10.95
Made in: California, USA
By: Beaulieu Vineyard
Year: 2013

This Californian Cabernet Sauvignon smells like one, but a little milder with leather and berry notes. The taste is even milder, but not so watery. Some decent tannins in the finish. The grapes are felt, but not the typical punch in the mouth we are use to with this grape. Also, some vanilla is present, so not your typical Cab Sauvignon, but a decent red wine for the price to have with food.
