2009 Cabernet Sauvignon: For those who believe they aren't gonna find a good Cabernet Sauvignon from Ontario from the 2009 vintage might want to think again. This Riverview offering isn't going to be long-lived, but it is good for immediate-future consumption (2-3 years). 50% of the wine was aged in American oak, which gives the fruit plenty of backbone for the short term. Nice red and black fruit with vanilla and toasted-raspberry notes all mixed with good ready to drink tannins; all for a good price. ****, Michael Pinkus, Ontario Wine Review, March 14, 2012.
2010 Cabernet Franc Icewine:A very nice version of what is becoming an icewine staple. It used to be just Vidal and Riesling were the icewine grapes of choice for winemakers, but slowly but surely Cabernet Franc is making a regular appearance and showing up those white grapes with it's red fruit offerings. This wine meshes chocolate and strawberry-rhubarb pie along with hints of cherry, apricot and of course all are honey coated. Rating: ****1/2, Michael Pinkus, OntarioWineReview.com, Dec. 16, 2011.
2010 Cabernet Franc Icewine:A nose of strawberry, red currants and honey. It's all about the jammy red fruits in the mouth, thick and unctuous, with super-sweet notes that are balanced out by moderate acidity. Rating: 93 points, Rick Vansickle, WinesinNiagara.com, Dec. 16, 2011
2009 Angelina's Reserve Chardonnay: Alluring, exotic and highly perfumed, beckoning aromas of honeyed pear, leesy citrus and toast abound. Citrus, crisp, green apple and tangy white grapefruit are predominant throughout. It’s mid weight, generously textured with a lip-smacking refreshing aftertaste. This is rock-solid 4 stars ratcheting up a notch poured alongside seafood like calamari rings or steamed mussels. Rating: **** Vic Harradine, Winecurrent.com, Nov. 11 2010

2009 Unoaked Chardonnay: The lifted nose evokes flowers, stone fruit and citrus aromas. A lively tang on entry awakens the palate providing a segue to vibrant flavours of green apple, grapefruit and lemon. Mid-weight, taut with a zippy spine of acidity, the wine has a lengthy consistent finish. Try it with smoked salmon appetizers or with a seafood main course.

2008 Riesling:Peach and citrus-lime aromas followed by zingy, zippy fruits on the palate. Crisp citrus and sweet-tart peach and lime flavours in this refreshingly dry Riesling. Rating: ***1/2 Rick VanSickle, St. Catharines Standard, Sept 26 2009
2009 Riesling:A nose of grapefruit, lime and a touch of quince on the nose. It's lively and crisp with racy acidity to go with refreshing lemon-lime flavours. Rating: ***1/2 Rick VanSickle, St. Catharines Standard, June 2010.
2009 Riesling Icewine: Brilliant gold, alluring and seductive, this is an absolutely delicious icewine! Enticing, lifted aromas of lemon-grass, crème brulée, pineapple, marmalade and a whiff of petrol drift from the glass. The texture is luscious yet refined—sweet, ripe fruit balanced with subtle, refreshing acidity. The balance is outstanding and the finish, reminiscent of lemon marmalade, goes on forever. Enjoy on its own or pair with strong cheese or foie gras. You’ll want to cellar a bottle or two to enjoy over the next 10 years. Rating: ***** Susan Desjardins, Winecurrent.com, Nov 11 2010
2008 Salvatore's Reserve Cabernet: This is special, don’t miss out—the price quality balance tips well in your favour. Tantalizing aromas—vanilla, dark berry fruit and spice—presage a delectable array of complex, ripe, succulent flavour with ripe, black, Bing cherry, juicy mulberry and hints of mint to the fore. It’s 2/3 Cab Franc and 1/3 Cab Sauvignon with 12 months in American oak. Full-bodied with a silky smooth texture, it’s perfectly balanced with a lingering aftertaste showcasing fine-grained sweet tannin and more delicious fruit.
