Kacaba Cabernet/Merlot/Syrah 2013
VQA Niagara Escarpment $16.95 (101477) 12.5% alcohol
Charry wood smoke, gamy notes and exotic spice mingle with wisps of cherry cola aromas on the nose of this red blend—52% Cab Franc, 36% Merlot, 12% Syrah. There’s a racy line of cranberry, sour cherry and passion fruit racing across the palate and replaying on the tart finish. It’s light-medium weight and a great choice with meat-lovers pizza or pasta in tomato sauce. (Vic Harradine)
