Shipped and sold by Niagara College Teaching Winery

2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Sauvignon
Critic's Rating 91 pts
Deep purple hue, dark fruit with a touch of dried herbs. Palate is full of cassis and plum. Prominent but well integrated tannin make this a wine for food and for aging.

Pairing Suggestions: Would go great with the classic steak, any smoked meats, or even a classic pepperoni pizza

Sweetness Level: Dry
