Tasting Notes
With a dense dark purple colour, the concentration of this wine on the nose is phenomenal with sweet black currant, dried cherry, kirsch, fig, vanilla, tobacco and oak. This wine has a BIG palate with dry, smooth tannins. Flavours of ripe cherry, baking spices, and dried currant are dominant, leading to a long, spicy finish with subtle oak. Enjoy now from a decanter or cellar for 10+ years.

Winemakers Notes
The 2015 vintage produced fruit with a beautiful balance of flavours. The growing season was not too hot or wet which allowed very even ripening. A milder December accelerated the appassimento drying process (45 days, 20% of the juice) while retaining the fresh fruit flavours. This wine was then aged in select French and American oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.

Wine and Food Pairing
Suggested food pairings include grilled red meats, lean cuts like tenderloin, T-bone, and NY Strip work particularly well. Beef Bourguignon, osso bucco, tourtiere, roasted vegetables, lasagna, dark chocolate, dried figs and charcuterie, firm and blue cheeses.

Awards and Accolades
89 Points – Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
“This is a 100% estate-grown cabernet sauvignon from a rare-in-Niagara south facing slope atop the escarpment in Vinemount Ridge. About 20% was made through fermenting of dried grapes. It was aged 18 months in oak. The nose is rather reserved but shows very ripe currant fruit, chocolate and cedar notes. Very good depth, with a firm, edgy feel. Not as dense as expected. Very good length. I would age it another two years.” David Lawrason, winealign.com, April 29, 2018
