  • A stunning 92 point Cabernet from Creekside

    Tastes like
    Black fruit (blackberry, plum) and complex tones of earth, leather and spice. Concentrated and smooth, with medium tannins and a long fruity finish. A beautiful wine.
    Pairs with
    A fruity wine with solid structure and good tannins… a good match for serious steak, lamb grilled over open flame, wild boar and venison. A mushroom cheeseburger would be a good call, too.
    Good for
    Brushing the snow off the charcoal grill (or gas, if you must) for that first grilling of 2017. (Or, depending on where you live, the tenth.)

    Why we're drinking this
    A Cabernet Sauvignon like this comes along maybe once in a decade. The 2012 vintage was just about perfect across Niagara and Creekside’s Queenston Road Vineyard — one of the warmest areas on the St. David’s Bench — delivered particularly exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes were picked in mid-October, after enjoying some extended “hang time” as the evenings turned cooler, ensuring fully ripe and vibrantly fresh fruit. Creekside’s reputation for creating big, bold reds carries on with this Reserve Cab, a wine of considerable concentration balanced with elegance and finesse. One of their best yet.

    Tasting note
    You can taste the purity of that pristine 2012 fruit in this seductively powerful wine. Fragrant with black fruit and a hint of spice and soft leather. Though it was aged 32 months in oak, only one of the five barrels making up this wine was new; the others were either one or two years old. So the fruit is in full expression, without being overly tuned by the wood. Flavours of black berries, ripe plum, black olive and pencil lead dance on a velvety texture. Medium, ripe tannins. The finish is long and fruity. Drinking very well now, but will improve and evolve through 2022.
