Reply to "'00 Inniskillin Vidal Niagara Peninsula Icewine"

Vino Me, we stayed at Inn on the Twenty, a beautiful inn right at Cave aSpriungs Cellars. We had a private tasting with Brian Kelly, Cave Springs' wine consultant and tasted all their ice wines currently available for sale.

I just dug out my notes. The dry wines, like virtually all dry wines from Canada are not worth drinking. They're thin and uncomplicated, with no richeness or complexity. As for the ice wines, you hit the jackpot with the '98 Riesling. It was by far the best available from Cave Springs. My notes:

"Nose of raisins and spice. Beautifully balanced. 94 points."

None of the others rated over an 89. Sorry for the short notes, but we tasted hundreds of wines.
