Matt’s review:

13th Street Winery’s 2013 Cabernet Merlot is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc, sourced from vineyards in the Creek Shores and Niagara-on-the-Lake appellations of the Niagara Peninsula. A very expressive wine with dark cherry, spicy plum, vanilla, sweet pipe tobacco, dried herbs and cedar on the nose and palate. Very approachable now, with a soft texture and refreshing mouthfeel. Dark cherry, plum, and spicy brambleberry persist on the finish. Pair this value priced wine with confidence by serving alongside BBQ’d burgers or charcoal grilled tenderloin knowing it will be enjoyed by all. Tasted March 2017. 90 points. Matt Steeves –
