2015 – 750 mL
15.3% alc./vol.

Tasting Notes
Big aromas of ripe red currants, red cherry, fresh black fig, and dried cherry with some vanilla bean and leather in the background. A huge wine with dry smooth tannins and flavours of ripe red cherry, currants, and spices such as clove, leading to an extremely long and complex finish. The balance and powerful elegance of this wine will astound you.

Winemaking Notes
This wine is 100% Cabernet Franc (grapes are from 3 different vineyards which adds to the complexity) with 50% appassimento and aged for 18 months in French and American oak barrels.  This wine will age in the cellar easily for 5-8+ years and is drinking very well now.

Wine and Food Pairing
Serve this wine alongside New York Striploin or Filet Mignon with peppercorn sauce, grilled wild mushrooms would also work nicely, as well as anything slow braised. It is also an elegant accompaniment to cured meat and fine hard cheeses or enjoy on its own after time in the decanter.

Awards and Accolades
92 Points – Apologetic Red 2015 
“It is full bodied indeed (15% alcohol) very ripe, powerful, intense and still quite tannic, so age it to at least 2020. The length is excellent.”  David Lawrason, winealign.com, April 29, 2018

92 Points – Apologetic Red 2015
“So, a big, heady nose of figs, black currants, kirsch, leather, blackberries, mature red fruits and a range of barrel oak spices. It has incredible depth of fruit on the palate, from dark cassis and currants to fortified cherry/raspberry notes with added Espresso bean, spice, anise, a mélange of integrated herbs, smooth tannins and a long, long finish. A very big wine that will need [time] in the cellar.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13, 2018
