- 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.
- 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.
