BEST VALUE AWARD - NATALIE MACLEAN
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc
Harvested from several premium vineyards across the Niagara Peninsula in November of 2019. Immediately crushed to tank for a 4 day cold soak before inoculating with yeast. Fermented at warm temperatures in tank and then aged in barrels for 12 months.
Black fruit aromas lead the way, along with wood spice and some earthy Old-World rusticity. Medium-bodied, with tannins that soothe you rather than smother you.
Smooth. Dry. Spicy.
