2014 R&D Red Blend Released in LCBO Vintages

April 14th, 2016

We’re thrilled that the 2014 R&D Red Blend will be released in LCBO Vintages stores on Saturday April 16th. Ontario residents can find our latest vintage of R&D Red Blend at their local LCBO by clicking here.


This release has garnered critical acclaim from some of Canada’s top wine critics including:

91 points – Sara d’Amato (WineAlign)

“Solid offering, bold and richly textured with youthful, chalky tannins and generous mass of fruit…Excellent length. Very good value.”

90 points РDavid Lawrason (WineAlign)

“R&D is sort of a wine in progress for Culmina – made from various blocks that are in adolescence. It has a fairly lifted nose of red and blackcurrant, cordite/firecracker and herbs. There is a certain elegance and tension mid-palate…”

89-91 points РTony Aspler

“Deep ruby colour; spicy black fruits with a blackcurrant note; medium to full-bodied, dry with ripe black plum and currant flavours with notes of coffee bean and dark chocolate carried on lively acidity with a firm finish…”

The full 2014 R&D Red Blend Tasting Note is available here.
