Tasting Notes

The blend expresses calculated complexity with its robust structure and dynamic red-berry fruit core, making for a unique combination of audacity and sophistication. Enjoy right now or age several more years.

Technical Notes

Grapes were harvested from top producing red vineyards in Niagara in October and left to cold soak for 2 days. Fermented in separate batches according to vineyard and vintage. The various lots were fermented in stainless steel tanks, one tonne bins, and demi-muid headless barrels. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel where it aged for 21 months. Barrel composition was 25% American oak, and 75% French with 17% of the mix being new barrels. Bottled August 15, 2012.
