Garnet colour with a lovely bouquet of blue plum, blueberry and black currant fruit, accented by notes of sweet spice, oak and tobacco leaf. This is a full-bodied wine with soft drying tannins, good structure and moderate acidity. Fruit forward flavours of black cherry, black currant and dark plum fill the mouth. The lingering finish shows notes of black tea, cocoa powder, spice and black fruit preserves.

Enjoy with two-year-old Canadian cheddar and Grana Padano cheese; beef tenderloin in rich red wine reduction or topped with melted blue cheese or rich melted butter; grilled red meats (medium to medium-rare); rosemary lamb chops; pot roast.

A cool, wet spring gave way to a late start to the growing season, which led directly into a hot summer with a record breaking dry spell. This accelerated the ripening, bringing the fruit back on track. September brought cooler weather, slowing the ripening and allowing a good window for picking. This resulted in wines that are more balanced with lower alcohols and higher natural acidity. Overall, the 2017 vintage was lower in heat units than 2016 but still higher than average.
