Stratus 2013 Kabang Red
Stratus is known for making big, serious wines. But with Kabang, French winemaker JL Groux shows his playful side. This is still a serious wine, but its perhaps a little less cerebral than his flagship wines. It’s meant to be accessible, ready to drink, and easy to love. And it sure is. As kwäf Taste Bud Lindsay Groves enthuses: “Here’s your new go-to red!” Or, your back-to-school red — it’ll make a great study companion. We like to drink this one on its own and savour the big juicy fruit, vanilla and soft tannins. But it goes nice with spicy and well-sauced dishes of many persuasions. Feel free to yell “kabang!” at any time.
This is Toronto-based, Pilot Coffee Roasters’ diligent, tried-and-true espresso blend. This steadfast blend is designed to produce a big-bodied shot packed with flavour and complexity that can hold its own when combined with milk.
While its component parts rotate depending on the season, its defining feature is a fine balance of dark fruit, Swiss chocolate and nutty tones with medium acidity, tailor-made to stand the test of time.
