I tried this wine about a year ago, I was truly amazed at its quality
and overall uniqueness of flavours. Boasting light chocolate and lots
of raisins, this is a very plumy, chewy wine, with a very long finish.
Right now, it is not available within the L.C.B.O. system, so it would be prudent to (via my large web database) to search for other stores within Canada that carry it.
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Middle-East-style chicken --- enjoy!
-L.C.B.O. PRICE: $23.95
COMMENT: A 'perennial favourite'
of Robert Parker (*I really despise that expression*), this wine always
seems to stand out year after year. Containing lots of warm mocha
notes, spicy plums, and red licorice, the 2005 'Woodcutters' is a real
beauty. Unfortunately, it is also pretty much impossible to find within
the L.C.B.O. system, so it ought to be nice and hard to fine it
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Marinated Peking duck --- enjoy!
