Dense red in colour, this medium to full bodied Niagara Cabernet Merlot from EastDell displays rich aromas of chocolate and leather intermingling with blackberries and a touch of spice. The palate has complex flavours of dark berry, spicy cedar, tobacco and herb notes. This wine will further develop with up to 5-6 years of ageing.
Pair this Niagara red wine with a steak, hot off the grill and topped with roasted red peppers and grilled onions or with a gourmet pizza!

Wine Writer’s Comment:
This wine was a nice surprise. Malbec is definitely not a common grape to find in the region and this one is well made. It’s always interesting to witness the different expressions of a grape in varied climates. If you’ve had Malbec from Cahors or Argentina before, this has its own unique character. Worth trying, it's quite charming.
