2019 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 12.9% ALC/VOL

A complex bouquet of luscious black cherry, crushed violets and blueberry extract interlace with soothing aromas of frankincense, candle wax, and warm balsamic reduction. A slight note of graphite on the palate helps focus the flavours of chocolate mocha on the finish

Growing Conditions: The year began with mild conditions that followed with a winter full of significant weather variability including extreme cold and heavy snowfall, rapid thaw in March was the primary weather story of the spring. Budbreak in most areas had a slight delay; however, fl owering occurred quickly as the grapevines accelerated to make up for the late start. July was warm and sunny, punctuated by three short but intense heat waves. Two significant rainfalls occurred in the month, maintaining soil moisture and supporting developing vines. August was warm and intermittently stormy, leading into a comparatively average September. Consistent and average conditions completed the summer and allowed for a stable and phased-in harvest.
