Stratus Vineyards 2007 Ice Wine Red (Niagara-on-the-Lake) Ontario
Availability: Direct from winery
Date Tasted: January 1st, 2010
Tasting Notes: Holy doodle this is good. If you have been following Icon Wines you will know that I am a fan of Stratus wines in my home town of Niagara Falls. This offering solidifies that Stratus is a super premium Canadian wine. If ever in the area I highly recommend this winery. You will not be disappointed by the ultra-modern tasting room.
The appearance has a strawberry/garnet core. The nose had amazing strawberry, rhubarb, and concentrated vanilla. The palate had concentrated strawberry, rhubarb and really good acid. The finish was very very long. If you do get your hands on this, when you are tasting it hold in your mouth for a while and see what happens. You will be pleasantly surprised.
