Tasting Notes
A complex nose of ripe black cherry, blackberry, fresh black currant, slight aromas of eucalyptus and leather. 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.

Winemaking Notes
The 2015 harvest gave us a slightly reduced crop due to a cold winter. Despite the reduced crop, the vines produced fruit with a beautiful balance of flavours with crisp acidity.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.

Wine and Food Pairing
A red wine to be enjoyed on its own or serve with grilled red meats, BBQ ribs, grilled Portobello mushroom, firm cheeses, and charcuterie.
