OntarioWineReview Video #59: Colchester Ridge 2010 Meritage
The first thing you’ll notice about this wine from Colchester Ridge (CREW) is the label, it’s not the same old sail on the label … and it’s not just the label that has a fancy look, this just might be the best Meritage to come out of CREW – let’s say ever. The nose doles out oaky and smoky notes right from the get go, then the cassis swings in – palate is all about dark fruit: blackberry, black raspberry and cassis with good balancing acidity and a nice lazy tannin structure, meaning they don’t over-power the wine, they hang out but aren’t causing trouble – much silkier than expected with touches of cinnamon and spice. Only 295 cases produced and they should go fast. Price: $20.00 – Rating: ****+
