Ottawa, ON

Matt’s review: An expressive red blend from one of Ontario’s premium boutique wineries, Icellars Estate Winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Reserve Red brings together estate grown Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Malbec to produce a beautifully balanced, silky smooth wine that’s sure to be enjoyed by all. Fragrant sweet spices, plum, dark cherry, cacao, and fresh herbs on the nose and palate. Velvety smooth, with a refreshing finish, Reserve Red is primed to enjoy now and over the next five years. Enjoy with garlic-and-herb-crusted leg of lamb, or pork tenderloin with roasted strawberry-red wine sauce. Only 225 cases produced, so look for this winery direct. Tasted April 2020. 90+ points.
