Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas and flavours of black cherry, black currant, plum, vanilla, spice and chocolate. The wine has a soft entry which leads to nicely structured tannins and a lengthy finish.
Vineyard Notes
We experienced a very mild winter which led to an early spring bud-break, and flowering beginning in the third week of May. Harvest began on September 9 th and by the end of the month we were 60% through harvest – in 2011 we had yet to begin picking. Harvest was complete in mid-October, taking in over 260 tons of fruit – our largest harvest on record. An exceptional year resulting in outstanding wines to showcase in 2016 and beyond.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were harvested from two separate blocks on three different pick dates beginning September 14th and completing on September 23rd. The lots were fermented separately with an average of 15 days on the skins before pressing. The wine was then aged in predominately French oak barrels for a period of 18 months.
Food Pairing Notes
Barbequed ribs, flank steak, pasta marinara, roasted pork tenderloin, grilled lamb

We recieved this with our Wine Club shipment. Excellent wine with full bodied but still quite balanced. Really enjoyed it.
