I am truly a sucker for a wine series with a story, and thus explains my interest in the Pelee Island Vinedressers wine series.
The Vinedressers series was born out of an effort to introduce wine fans to the wine makers themselves. The series is promoted through its self branded Web site, where site visitors can learn of the winery history and peruse some of the present wine maker profiles. The Vinedressers series, produces seven wines in all, but we choose to try their Vinedressers Red 2010, which is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Lemberger, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
On colour, the Vinedressers Red 2010 holds a crisp garnet red hue. On the nose, you’ll note scents of plum, peppers and acerola. On the palate, this blends refined fundamentals are ever present as the tannins display a well tapered nature that is strong enough to provide some depth to the wine, but light enough to allow you to celebrate the ripe red fruit and chocolate tastes this wine produces. The Vinedressers Red 2010 provides a medium length finish and is quite smooth. A great option if serving wine to a group of friends with varying wine palates.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $15.95
