When in Ottawa, I walked into the Constellation speciality store and purchased this. Perhaps I should have known better, but hope springs eternal. I thought, “Going to their upper end product may make a difference!”
Made with Pinot Noir grapes farmed on limestone and silt soils near the town of Jordan on the Niagara Escarpment, I had expected great things from this bottle.
A medium ruby, its nose is deep field berry and cedar with hot alcohol.
Dry with medium plus, scratchy tannins and flavours of berry, cherry and herbaceous greenery, this wine is tart, unbalanced, pedestrian, and poised on a muddy palate.
