2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 14.9% ALC/VOL
Cabernet Sauvignon
Critic's Rating 93 pts

On the nose you are greeted with clean fruit character, including delicious notes of cherries, red currant, and pomegranate. This is followed by notes of black pepper, baking spices like star anise, cloves, and cardamom, ending off with a lovely cedar finish. This is a dry wine, with smooth tannins and a balanced acidity. The palate is layered with flavours of compote fruit, like currants, cherries, and strawberries, in addition to a delightful fresh note of eucalyptus. This Cabernet Sauvignon ends off with a long and velvety taste.

Food Pairing: Filet mignon, or a roasted lamb shoulder

Critic's Rating

It’s such a treat to see this variety perform well in a near perfect vintage like 2020. It’s tight right now, but swirl vigorously and those profound notes of blackberries, cassis, anise, black currants, sweet tobacco notes, cocoa and elegant spice begin to emerge. It’s highly structured on the palate with evident tannins supported by a rich broth of ripe dark berries, peppery notes, dark chocolate, subtle herbs, and fine oak spices all leading to a long, smooth finish. This is built to age for 10+ years. A beauty.
