Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

Geographical Indication: VQA Niagara Peninsula
Varietals: Merlot (64%), Cabernet Franc (22%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%)
Vineyard: Various Niagara Peninsula vineyards
Residual Sugar: 2 g/L
Cases Produced: 350

Appearance: Deep purple in colour.
Nose: Cedary, plum and cherry bouquet with oak spice.
Palate: Medium-bodied, well-extracted flavours of plum, cherry and currants with well-integrated oak.
Quality: 90 points – Wine Club Canada. Outstanding. Tannins are ripe, but a year’s cellaring should polish them.

Food Pairing: Pan-seared duck with blueberry sauce, grilled mushroom and Swiss cheese veggie burger, creamy chicken marsala, grilled flank steak with burrata and pesto, and spicy Cajun jambalaya.
