Tawse Cabernet Merlot, 2019

Shipped and sold by Tawse Winery

2019 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Merlot

Winemaker’s Comments: This blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon was carefully sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards and spent 18 months in French oak barrels. On the nose this blend entices you with raspberry, black cherry and cacao. The body is medium with firm but well integrated tannins and are accompanied by a lingering finish of red fruit and chocolate.

Food Pairings: This full-bodied red is delightful to pair with. Experiment with dishes that complement the rich tannins and acidity in this wine, enjoy with a juicy burger, steak tacos or a hearty chili.

Residual Sugar: 0 g/L
