Don't cook with anything you wouldn't drink.

Along with the notes from OP, Wine Enthusiast rated it 85 points with the following tasting note: "This wine has soft tannins and juicy red fruits. It is ripe, with a gentle texture, bright fruitiness and enough tannins to give the fruit their support. Drink this attractive wine now."

I'll likely grab a few. Always easy to return things to LCBO.

Thanks OP.

Not sure which wine you are referencing, but I can vouch this is a great wine for the $. Very smooth, full bodied, light spice, and oaky.

This is a great value wine. Not worthy of a 4.0 on vivino but not too far off. I’ve only tasted the 2016. I’d recommend it, at $12 it was an amazing value. Someone mentioned to me the 2017 may not be as good but I haven’t tried it myself and would appreciate opinions here. I’ll probably pick up a few more to keep on hand.

Will be giving the 2017 a try this evening. Hopefully just as good!
