2007 Konzelmann Estate Barrel Aged 4th Generation MerlotMy sister brought me this bottle of wine as a gift last year.  She lives in Ottawa for the time being and thought I needed to expand my horizons and learn about some Ontario wines.  For the record, she is right.

According to the Konzelmann Estate Winery website (click HERE), this wine is a Bordeaux style red aged 18 months in French oak barrels.

And it’s good!

Deep, pure red in colour, it has aromas of plum, blackberry, and oak.

Taste was smooth, not too dry, and more fruity than I expected.  Slight spice to it.

Overall, very good.  Not too heavy and well-rounded.  Great wine to relax!
