2017 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 11.9% ALC/VOL
Critic's Rating 87 pts

Hand picked and hand sorted from reduced crop. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 10 months in new and used French oak barrels.

Appearance: Pale purple colour.

Nose: Berry fruit, strawberry, raspberry with hints of cedar, and cracked pepper. The nose shows a melange of plums, earth and red fruits.

Palate: Medium-full bodied, well balanced with elegant acidity, followed with soft lingering tannins. It has a good zip on the palate to prop up the abundance of juicy red fruits, plums and peppery notes. Finishes intensely with spices and cherry.

Food pairings: Enjoy it today with hamburgers, Italian dishes with red sauce, barbecued chicken, pizza, and grilled meats. Try it with goat cheese, Camembert, cream cheese, Brie, and other soft cheeses. Serve this wine slightly chilled. Enjoy now, or store until at least 2021.
