On the nose, this dark burgundy wine has notes of blueberries, dark red cherries, and dark chocolate. This juicy and fruit-forward, medium-to-full-bodied wine is soft with pronounced tannins and beautiful blackberry flavours.
Made with predominantly estate grown grapes that were harvested late in the season for optimal ripeness. The extended hanging time created a ripe, smooth tannin structure. Punch downs and pump overs ensured good colour and flavour extraction. It was barrel-aged for 15 months in a combination of seasoned French and American oak barrels, and then bottle-aged for an additional 6 months before release.
Food Pairing Notes
