Tasting Notes, 2013 Nova 7  “ In the glass, a light orchid pink with a misty rose hue. On the nose, aromatic bursts of jasmine, white rose and passion fruit are brightened by notes of fresh lime and grapefruit zest. On the palate, the wine is crisp and refreshing with elegant hints of mango and candied green apples adding complexity and substance. A subtle effervescence enhances the wine’s vibrancy.” Head Winemaker Jean-Benoit Deslauriers

Jost Vineyards NV Prost  (Nova Scotia) Pairs very well with Applewood Smoked Cheddar Cheese and is one of my favorites. The wine, which goes by the name of “Prost” (German for Cheers!), has a pale straw yellow color with green hues and a moderately persistent fine mousse. The nose is highlighted by apple fruitiness and a lightly floral bouquet, reminiscent of Muscat. The wine possesses the great acidity which all good sparklers come with, balanced by just a touch of residual sugar. A…

ONE OF MY FAVORITES- 2007 LEON MILLOT RESERVE Soft, velvety tannic structure, medium-bodied, dark and red berry, black cherry, hint of vanialla bean in the mid-palate, long lingering berry medley finish.  A red wine that is more finesse than power.  Leon Millot expresses itself almost like a Pinot Noir or Barbera, both lighter bodied grape varieties that create elegant refined wines.
