A blend of cabernet sauvignon, syrah, merlot, petit verdot and malbec, Creekside's Laura's Red has been the winery's calling card since 1999. The 2016 is a particularly successful vintage, ripe to be sure per the warm vintage, well structured, with woolly tannins and balanced acids. The fleshy, plush, creamy texture and dark fruit flavours will appeal widely, as will the dash of sweet oak spice. I'd suggest cellaring another year or so for more textural development, or hold into the mid-late '20s. Score - 90. (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, Feb. 19, 2020)
