I was looking forward to the '97 which was a decent year in the Niagara region....but bottle was corked...YUCK! Too bad as I had previously really liked this one.

Opened up a 99 in its place. Subtle fruit up front with a sense of sweetness, then wood takes over big time. Tannins and alcohol noticable at then end. Okay but nothing to go back for. About $12 USD.
