Rosehall Run 2004 Buckthorn Red - $14.95

Rosehall Run is definitely on of the wineries to watch in Prince Edward County. All the wines I have tried from their portfolio, be it from Niagara grapes or County grapes, have been of exceptional quality. They, like Long Dog, have the goal of one day being self sufficient in grapes and using out-of-County fruit only when they want to, not because of need. This all-county Zweigelt fulfills that wish … and admirably. There are only a handful of wineries making Zweigelt, and that’s too bad, because when made well these wines can be as flavourful and food friendly as any you’ve tried. This one is a great little quaffer, good for pizza or pasta nights. Well-balanced acidity with a raspberry and blackberry nose and taste. Available at the winery only.
