From the title of this post, you would think I am about to write a tell-all tale of a secret government plot, but no. This is the name that adorns the on of the wines produced by The Foreign Affair Winery, found here in Ontario Canada.  Though not clearly stated, we can only assume that the wineries name is a tribute to the overwhelming impact living in Italy had on founder Len Crispino, and his wanting to bring this passion back home.

Italy introduced us to a whole new world of fine food, wine, and the simple joys of everyday life. We discovered the wonders of Amarone style wines in the northern part of the country. The more we learned about them, the more excited we became at the prospect of bringing this incredible craftsmanship back with us

The care, diligence and passion held by Crispino and his winemakers becomes abundantly clear upon the first sip of The Conspiracy 2013, which is a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

On colour, The Conspiracy 2013 holds a deep ruby hue.  On the nose, you are met with a wonderful floral bouquet, along with spice, strawberry and cherry.  On the palate, you’ll immediately notice the fruit forwardness of this wine and pick up hints of red berries, chocolate and late blueberry, in a medium finish.

The Conspiracy 2013 is indeed a repeat buy.

This wine retails at the LCBO for $19.95

We gave this wine a score of 4.5/5
