Some thought we spoke in jest when we said we were going to ensure we made the trek to Beamsville to get our hands on a bottle of Lock Stock and Barrel Meritage, but we made good on our word and did just that. (This wine is not yet available in our local liquor store, hence required trip).
The Lock Stock & Barrel Meritage is a wondrous creation from Rosewood Estate Winery and is a lovely blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This blend also serves as a great representation of Rosewoods fusion of old and new wine making techniques.
The Lock Stock & Barrel wine holds a crimson red hue. On the nose, scents of plum, black currant and spice are noted. On the palate, tastes of chocolate, vanilla, cherry and light oak are outfitted with a long lustrous finish.
This was truly a fantastic wine experience and even given its fullness, this wine drinks well on its own.
This wine is not yet available at the LCBO but can be ordered directly from the winery at a cost of $34.20 per bottle. Whether you order it or travel directly to the winery as we did, do all you can to get your hands on a bottle of Rosewoods Lock, Stock & Barrel!
We gave this wine a score of 5 out of 5.
