Cave Spring

Estate Beamsville Bench Riesling 2017

First time trying ice wine, and though they pick the grapes before the first frost so not technically ice wine this really impressed it was sweet and had some natural bitters like tannins from apples and pears — a month ago

Inniskillin

Vidal Icewine 2021

Very strong sake, plum, lychee aroma. Guava and lychee flavor, full bodied the entire time, extremely sweet. Hints of agave in the aftertaste. This has been my favorite wine of the semester but it’s probably just the sugar, sorry Stoler have fun in Hawaii — a month ago

Black Hills Estate Winery

Carmenere 2018

The nose on this wine is incredible with lots of dark, ripe black fruits, leather, and black tea leaves. Dark and milk chocolate are also both present. Lots going on and this will continue to age well. We’re going to pair this with venison strip loin! — 5 months ago
