Mission Hill 5 Vineyards Cabernet Merlot 2011


Is Canada is warm enough to produce good cabernet merlot blends?  If this wine is indicative, yes.  It has classic cabernet sauvignon aromatics of bay leaf and dark fruits.  The palate has flavours reminding of dark fruits and cloves, while there is medium length and textural extract on the finish.  Ready to drink now, this is a balanced and good value cabernet blend displaying varietal typicity.  Good
