Canadian wine delivered right to your door!
Perfumed red cherry lifts off immediately on the nose, followed by pencil shavings, cigar box and earthy elements. The palate has some great fruit – cherry and plum to be sure but nicely complemented by dark chocolate, leather, a certain rusticity and fine grain tannins. This wine is big and the tannins are still grippy. Needs some time in a decanter or ageing in the cellar.
2016 was a hot, dry vintage and great for big, bold reds like this one. This block of Merlot from our Queenston Road Vineyard always makes a powerhouse wine with lots of structure and tannin. Built for longterm ageing, it will best be enjoyed in 2023 or later.
Food Pairings: Red meat- beef tenderloin, beef brisket, smoked portobello mushrooms, hard cheeses, rich and hearty stew.
