Chemin de Thirty Bench (Oregon / Ontario)
Last night on the island (near North Bay) saw us consuming quite a few bottles of wine - that's good because there were nine of us so two bottles just wouldn't do. Though there were two that made the biggest impression and they were the 2006 Chemin de Terre from A to Z Wine Works in Oregon - this is just a fun red made from 7 different grape varieties, pure fruit enjoyment here. The other was from Ontario, this was the "serious" after dinner red that most of us enjoyed, full of black fruit and lovely flavour - the winner of the evening: Thirty Bench 2007 Red; what a beauty.
