This is a special occasion wine. Opened on September 10th 2010. The aroma smelled of spice box chocolate. The taste was complex with berry fruit and the wine still contained tannin which leads me to believe this wine still has some aging potential. A real pleasure to have tried a wine that by its numbers of bottles is very rare. We look forward to trying more Cabernet Sauvignon from Five rows.

Earth & blueberries on the nose, dark red ruby colour, good concentration with lingering mouthfeel of blueberries, sweet tannins, good integration, elegant cab sauv with very good stuffing, impressive, showcases what notl cab sauv can express.

#509 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon
We have just - December 15, 2010 - drunk this wine that we bought when we visited in October.
It is excellent to drink now and within the next two years. It has a delicate nose. Purple colour. It is full of red forest fruit flavour. The aftertaste is a long lasting pleasure. It is such a pity that we were able to take only the one bottle with us to The Netherlands. It pairs fantastically with a good filet of beef. If only we could have more of these undiscovered beauties. Kindest regards, Frans & Jeannette den Boer

Blueberry, dark purple colour, big concentration, black & blue fruit flavours, built to last & age, massive cab sauv, more concentrated than the legendary 1991 lot 31/66 john marynissen cab sauv, full bodied, substantial cab sauv, best ever from niagara that should age for 15+ yrs, great wine.

We will put this world-class cabernet sauvignon away in our cellar for quite a while...as hard as that is going to be! I would go as far as saying that this is not only the best wine I have ever had from Canada but one of the best wines I have ever had period! This bottle is a pure work of art, from the label to the precious juice inside.

I was happy to pick up the 2007 from Five Rows and to meet Wes Lowrey. The vintage was such an exceptional one that holds great hope. I will lay them down for a while, periodically looking at them and admiring the label. When to drink, who knows, when I do though memories of Five Rows and my visit to the winery will be on my mind.

A “Library Update” of my own:
Lauren and I opened a bottle (387) of the 2007 Cab. Sauv to celebrate the birth of our daughter (July 23, 2012). It was very very nice!!! Still has quite a fruity nose, along with vanilla, and a hint of tobacco. This wine has lots of life left in the bottle, it took a good while in the glass to open fully. Flavors of nice ripe fruit on the pallet, still lots of tannins at play, and a very long smooth finish!
Cheers to another well crafted vintage Wes!

The depth and intensity of this cab sauv showcases how we can deliver ripeness, flavour, length and longevity. It will so hard not to sample this wine early even though it is a benchmark Ontario/Niagara cab sauv that will stand up to old world blends in 10+ years.

We enjoyed this bottle with good friends on May 4, 2012 - our first entertaining effort in our new condo. We had it as a white to start off the evening with smoked salmon and it was sublime! Smooth - it has developed complexity with deeper and richer fruit tastes I think and will still be saving a few bottles into next year - it just keeps getting better.

It brought to mind green apples with a touch of honey. It was just as good as the taste we got on the day we bought it at the winery. Very nice!

Exquisite. Impressive.
So were bottles 52, 58, and 51.
I proudly and confidently served these bottles during Christmas festivities with friends and family one night.
The complexities, silkyness and delicate smooth finish were enjoy by all but especially savored by discerning palates.

Wes Lowrey is definitely an up and coming Niagara Vintner who we should keep an eye on.

Looking forward to your wines for years to come!

We arrived at Five Rows with a group of 13 from Brandon Manitoba. We had a group of Hospitality/Culinary students who were all over whelmed by the great hospitality that Wes Lowrey and his mom provided for us. We spent a couple hours with them and felt we were family when we left, we left after a week of being in Niagara and talked about our highlight being five rows winery, that is how hospitable the Lowrey family was to us. We thank you and will be talking about you for a very long time.

Shared with family on Dec. 23, 2010. Scent of pears and honey, with a slight melon undertone, and the faintest hint of "spent matchstick" , just a wink from the time spent in oak. A beautiful softness on the pallet, but not too soft! Honey again, and vanilla lingering in the mouth.
Too good not to share!

Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Lowrey for a lovely afternoon. What a wonderful experience. We just enjoyed your Pinot Gris with a chicken Pad Thai made with love by my husband and I.

It was wonderful to spend the afternoon in your winery and we will be back for more in the near future.

Tasting #3 In my opinion the wine is ready to drink and enjoy. The aroma, Strawberries, cranberries, and cherry. Feels soft in the mouth with barrel flavors of spices you might smell in the fall season. The finish goes on and on. Even the non pinot drinkers enjoyed this one. Looking forward to next years bottle opening if I can resist the temptation not to open another soon.

Red fruit and a wonderful earthiness on the nose. Sour cherries with soft tannins and still a good amount of acidity on the palate. We paired it with duck breast with sour cherry and thyme sauce, red wine farro (made with a cheap Baco as this is far too precious!), and snap peas. The sour cherries brought out the fruit in the wine and the acidity in the wine balanced the fattiness of the duck--a perfect pairing!

An excellent Burgundy style Pinot. Avoids the New World tendency to overstate the fruit. Would like to recommend this wine to The Lowery in Manchester UK, an upscale tech venue - however, that depends upon whether you wish to step up volume.
Whatever you do, keep up the production of a wonderful Canadian wine!

Eloquent rendition of a classic Reisling. While lacking in minerality, this wine comes alive with a well seasoned BBQ chicken with peppery notes on the finish. Superb nonetheless.

Lovely lemon zest & pineapple flavours and that slate minerality that for me is the mark of a good riesling!

Wes took some time out of his day to talk and walk myself and fellow classmates, visiting from Manitoba, through the original five rows earlier this spring, shortly after bottling the 2011 vintages. A very fun and insightful experience that ended with a tasting of course where I fell in love with this bottle (still with the Shiraz title before it had been switched to Syrah). This wine will wait in my case till the time is right. I cant wait to meet it again soon and know when I open bottle 121 I will love it all over again.
 
Dave Novak
#309 2011 Syrah
Opened 3/11/2017. A bit disappointed with this one. Had been stored in my celler, but the cork seemed to have decomposed; soaked 3/4ths of the way through and broke when i opened it. Wine wasnt totally corked, but definitely tasted very thin. Still had some pepper on the palate but was not as good as the 2012 I had recently opened. I still have a 2010, and hoping that doesnt have the same problem :(

I brought the bottle up from our cellar before the holidays for us to enjoy with something special. After the ice storm and five days without power our plans had changed. One night I was scrambling some eggs and having a little smoked salmon on the side when Sally brought out this lovely bottle. The fullness of the lychee and apricot fruit rounded out the natural dryness of the wine with an underlying sweetness that made me wish that there was a whole case downstairs not just the bottle that we finished that night. Thanks!

An ideal compliment. Notes of smooth citrus and elderflower. Bright notes up front. Refreshingly cleansing. Perfect for your Saturday night summer soiree!

Opened it the day after I bought it, let it decant and served it alongside sous-vide tri tip steak. Great smokiness to it. Will keep my 2nd bottle for a few years and see how it ages.

James Morocco
#1771 2013 Pinot Noir
"The earthiness within the wine is the strength and muscle within the deep layers of such delicate velvety silky plush red fruits. There is such lively energetic acidity that reminds me of a cooling soothing sensation. So subtle, so delicate.. but oh so loud. - James Morocco"

2014 Sauvignon Blanc

Nina Penner
#33 2014 Sauvignon Blanc
Our last Sauv Blanc of this marvellous vintage--very sad. One of the reasons I love your Sauv Blanc while I pass on most others is the incredibly complex nose, a far cry from the NZ stereotype. This time, I got lychee, fresh cut grass, lemon, pineapple, and lemongrass. The palate had an excellent acidity, great for the asparagus risotto I served it with. Somehow it manages to be both refreshing and also surprisingly weighty for a Sauv Blanc. The flavours from the nose carry through. The tasting note mentions grilled pineapple: spot on!
 
Jeff Elliott

Scott Cooper
#270 2014 Sauvignon Blanc
My wife and I opened this bottle to have with our Valentines Day meal. I made a tasty Red Thai Curry dish with Icelandic Halibut. This wine was outstanding. We believe Five Rows has the best wines in all of Niagara and this bottle of 2014 Sauv Blanc did not disappoint. It starts with a nice Green Apple Crisp, followed by a semi sweet tang and finishes with a clean and dry take away. My only regret is that its gone and it was our last bottle. Time for another trip to Niagara soon I think. Thanks again for your passion, craftsmanship and delivery of remarkable wines.

I served Fillet Mignon, asparagus, corn and potatos with your amazing Cabernet Sauvignon. Everyone enjoyed the wine! A compliment since my friend is a chef in Port Chester New York....and knows her wines. Excellent! We still have a couple of bottles for another special occasion. Thank-you for the excellent wine!

I must say this was an amazing bottle that we opened up this past weekend (July 3, 2011). It was full bodied, velvety in texture, still extremely fragrant and deep dark red. Although this bottle was very well developed, I will keep the other 2004 Cab Sauv for another year or two as I believe it will continue to develop into an exceptional wine.
