Tasting Notes
On the nose it shows layers of black currants, blackberry, black cherry, with notes of black pepper, vanilla, and subtle smoky oak.  The palate is smooth, complex, and balanced with flavours of ripe blackberry and black currant, followed by notes of cherry, and spicy pepper on the lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes
This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (46%), Cabernet Franc (40%), and Merlot (14%). This wine was re-passed and re-fermented on the skins from our appassimento wines, pressed, and aged for in French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels for 15 months.  This wine is intended to be enjoyed young but also has an estimated aging potential of 3 to 5 years.

Wine and Food Pairing
Its complex, ripe flavours, balance, and long, lingering finish make this wine a natural choice to pair with grilled red meats, lamb, stuffed pork tenderloin, traditional pappardelle pasta, BBQ ribs, grilled portabello mushrooms, spicy roasted vegetables, and wood fired pizzas… and so delicious that it can also be enjoyed on its own.

Awards and Accolades

88 points “It’s quite plush and round on the palate with bright cherry fruit, anise, pepper, spice and propped up by firm acidity. Near-term cellaring is recommended.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, Nov. 5, 2016
