'Wildass, with its donkey logo and Wild West typeface, is the casual brand made at Stratus, a high-end winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Stratus winemaker J-L Groux, a native of France's Loire Valley, is a master blender who's crafting mould-breaking cuvées.' (Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail, Jan. 9, 2013) Wildass Red combines a whack of different red wine grapes each vintage, but it's consistently fruit-forward, bright and savoury with easygoing tannins. Pair with free-range beef burgers or burritos.
Tasting Note: The fruit is so juicy and ripe on the nose of this wine it oozes strawberry, cherry, and raspberry. The tannin is smooth and approachable, but if you're looking for a place to start or maybe bolster your existing cellar this should evolve nicely over the next 5-7 years. The Wildass wines continue to over-deliver on their price point while remaining gulpable upon opening. I anticipate enjoying this wine as long as I can get it from the local vintages section because I don't anticipate this remaining on the shelves for long. Score - 4.5 Stars (out of 5).
