2017 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 14.9% ALC/VOL
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Merlot
  • Petit Verdot

This is a pleasing and generous wine. On the nose, the wine shows hints of vanilla and baking spice layered with dried cherries. On the palate, the wine is dry, with smooth tannins and a long juicy finish of black cherry and cardamom. Enjoy with roast beef, aged cheddar, or simply on its own.

Varietals: 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot
