Henry of Pelham Family Tree Red 2016

I love Family Tree blends from Henry of Pelham. These are wines designed for entertaining. They over deliver on their price and offer something that everyone at your table can enjoy whether they are a casual wine drinker or a hardened snob. The red version is interesting because on the nose it definitely screams Niagara Cab Franc and Merlot with raspberry and blackberry. When you take your first sip it feels like Syrah that has felt the caress of a warm summer as it offers wood smoke and black licorice but as this wine makes a graceful exit it leaves a hint of spice and nice acidity. I plan on enjoying this with beef from my oven or my grill. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5). (André Proulx, andrewinereview.ca, March 14, 2018)
