Tasting notes

Pondview Estate is a family-owned winery located in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Their Cabernet Merlot is a blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grape varieties. It brims with aromas of black cherry and cranberry and a sip offers up savoury herb, cedar and cherry flavours.

This wine is perfect for sitting by the fireplace in the evening or to share with someone special on a stay at home date night!

Pairing

This wine is a well-rounded red that can be served with rare to medium-rare red meats, with BBQed steak or roast beef, meat lovers lasagna or even roast lamb with a peppercorn crust.

Reviews & Ratings

Andre Proulx (July 20, 2018)
There is something a little meaty and a little smoky that climbs out of the glass here. A short swirl of the wine knocks some fruit out from under the campfire cookout aromas. You will find cassis, blackberry and plum on the palate. The tannins are still quite closed off and tight, so expect to put this wine in a decanter if you plan to drink it now, otherwise revisit this wine in a year or two. You can expect this wine to hold in a cellar for 7–10 years.

Producer Description

Nestled amongst the sprawling vineyards of the prestigious Four Mile Creek sub-appellation, PondView Estate Winery sits on a 50 acre grape farm that has been tended to by the Puglisi family since 1974. The family-owned winery is headed by Luciano (Lou) Puglisi who draws on grape-growing knowledge and experience that has been handed down from one generation to the next. As you sip any one of PondView's wines, you are tasting three generations of grape-growing and winemaking experience. Lou’s enthusiasm and respect for the winemaking process, alongside his dedication and commitment to excellence, earned him the prestigious title of Grape King in 2008, awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture to the finest vineyard operator in Ontario.
