tried a dark horse

a dark horse wine
While at the nearest grocery store, getting some lamb for the next vindaloo, I spotted a bottle in front of me (ha). It had a constellation on it, a horse rearing up. A dark horse.

This is Dark Horse Palimino Red 2018. A VQA Niagara region product via the in-house Wine Rack. Made with Cab Franc and Cab Sauv grapes. Made by Dark Horse Wines of Niagara Falls. Inexpensive.

Lovely colour. Fruity nose. A bit more sugar than others but still pleasantly dry. And a pleasant taste, not harsh, hints of fruit, berries specifically, a touch of spice. I like it.
