Tasting Notes

On the nose are aromas of ripe black cherry, leather, blackberry jam, creamy vanilla and blackcurrant compote. On the palate, this wine has flavours of ripe black cherry and blackberry, spice, and sweet vanilla bean which lead to an intense and lingering finish.

Winemaking Notes

The 2012 vintage was exceptional our estate Cabernet Sauvignon grapes ripened to unprecedented levels. The grapes were harvested in early November with a portion set aside to dry in the traditional appassimento method for 100 days. The wine was fermented on the skins, pressed, and then aged for 23 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Enjoy now after a lengthy decant, or continue to cellar through to the year 2022.

Food Pairings

This wine pairs naturally with grilled red meats, especially well-marbled cuts like prime rib and rib-eye, venison, elk, and bison. Also delightful served with a charcuterie and cheese selection.
