Winemaker: St. Regis
Available at: Canadian grocery stores, including Metro
Look: dark/cherry red
Nose: A bit vinegary off the top; small fruit with strong cherry notes.
Notes: A bit ‘thin’ on the palate. Notes include cherry, concord grape, and cider vinegar; doesn’t linger on the palate, pleasant aftertaste.
Matt’s impressions: If I were still drinking alcohol, this would be something I’d be happy to pay under $10 for, but would get a bit miffed past that price point. As a kit winemaker, this strikes me as being in the same range as a well-made kit. Not a bad wine for a table wine, but nothing to write home about.
Marisa says: “I liked it! It made me think of grape juice, but good, adult grape juice.”
Would we buy it again?: Yes
Pair with: smokey or pastrami seitlans, hearty stews, beans & rice.
