Three big, bold red wines for the red wine lover. Dream 2015, Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 & Temptress 2013 are tucked inside an elegant Foreign Affair Winery three bottle box.
This vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Cabernet Franc (27%), Merlot (11%), and Petit Verdot (2%). The grapes were small batch processed and fermented. The wine was aged for 16 months in select French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels and the final blend is made up of 15% appassimento wine (15% of the juice coming from grapes that were dried after picking). Decant this wine if enjoying now or cellar for an additional 5-8 years.
This bold wine shows off flavours of black cherry, fresh blackberry preserve, fresh black fig, spic, and slight oak on the finish. The big flavours of this wine are well balanced, complex, and the tannins are luxuriously smooth.
Awards & Accolades from 2013 vintage:
90 points – “It’s complex on the palate, big in fact, with concentrated red fruits, fine tannins, licorice, plums and length through the finish.” Rick VanSickle, Nov. 5, 2016, Winesinniagara.com
Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The grapes were hand harvested in late November with 15% of the grapes set aside to dry using the traditional appassimento method before pressing. The resulting wine was then aged in French and American oak for 26 months.
With a dense dark purple colour, the concentration of this wine on the nose is phenomenal with ripe black currant, eucalyptus, cigar tobacco, ripe black cherry, and spicy leather notes. The palate is firm yet elegant with smooth tannins and flavours of ripe black cherry, blackberry, black currant and subtle oak on the long finish.
Awards & Accolades:
91 points – “It’s deep, rich, dark and complex on the nose with notes of caramel spice, toast, vanilla, blackberry and anise.” Rick VanSickle, Nov. 5, 2016, Winesinniagara.com
This Temptress 2013 is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The wine was then aged for 26 months in French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels before being blended with 20% appassimento wine (grapes were left to dry after being picked). The aging potential for this vintage is conservatively estimated at 5-10 years.
The palate will seduce you with flavours of ripe black cherry, dark plum, blackberry, and subtle baking spices. With dark chocolate, cigar tobacco, and leather notes on the exceptionally long, complex finish. This full-flavoured, full-bodied rich wine is very well balanced with silky, elegant tannins.
