Review: Magnotta Oak Aged Cabernet Sauvignon, Ontario, Canada



Tonight's wine is from Magnotta (Ontario, Canada) - the Oak Aged Cabernet Sauvignon. There was no vintage on the label, so I'm not sure how old it is.



Tasting Note:
Strong raisin and plum aromas follow through on the palate. Very lightly oaked, slightly tannic. Light- to Medium-bodied. Normally, I enjoy wines from Magnotta, but this one I did not really enjoy. This is a light and fruity wine lacking oak depth. The label describing this wine was WAY off the actual flavour profile - perhaps it was aged too long.

  1. 3rd day and a lot of mocha and chocolate flavours. Not bad. Aromas are still raisin/plum.
