…Traynor Family Vineyard… The 2013 Chardonnay is a mouthful of marzipan and fine acidity, but I am drawn to the 2013 Pinot Gris for the mouth feel — as well as the spicy tingle that it imparts on the tongue.
…Harwood Estate…Pinot Gris… The aromas here are tropical, with a mix of caramelized fresh pineapple and a touch of mango. The flavours are a stream of apricot, sugarplums, apple and cherries jubilee. The finish is a clean mouth-smacking delight — leaving you begging for another sip.
…Barley Days Brewery…Scrimshaw Oyster Stout…As expected, there are notes of chocolate and coffee achieved by roasting the malts — and the smooth finish is attributed to the addition of oatmeal to the recipe. Alex added 1500 Malpeque Oysters from the pristine beds of Prince Edward Island to the brew, with delightful result
… Broken Stone Winery … Pinot x 2 … In the glass, the wine appears to be an older Pinot Noir with aromas of red current, rose water Turkish Delight, lanolin, barnyard — and a most intriguing suggestion of frankincense. The palate is a blend of cherry, green olive, white pepper, powered ginger, and mustard seed with an earthy finish.
…Hubbs Creek Pinot Noir… a washed garnet to the eye, with aromas of cherry nibs, cinnamon and freshly crushed pink peppercorn. The palate is cayenne-spiced cherry with a classic chalky finish. This wine will keep getting better over time.
