Tasting Notes
This bold wine shows off flavours of ripe cherry, dark plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, oak and tobacco, which all lead to a long, lingering finish. The big flavours of this wine are well balanced. complex and the tannins are luxuriously smooth.

Winemaking Notes
The 2013 harvest allowed for slow, even ripening of the fruit. This vintage is a blend of Merlot (37%), Cabernet Sauvignon (37%), Cabernet Franc (23%), and Petit Verdot (3%).  The grapes were small batch processed and fermented. The wine was aged for 26 months in select French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels and the final blend is made up of 15% appassimento wine (15% of the grapes were dried after picking).  Decant this wine if enjoying now or cellar for an additional 5-8 years.

Wine and Food Pairing
A red wine to be enjoyed on its own or serve with appetizers such as a charcuterie plate and firm flavourful cheese. Pairs well with rack of lamb, NY striploin, saucy BBQ ribs, and grilled portobello mushrooms.
