WINEMAKER'S NOTES: Shorter fermentation time allowed us to capture all of the fruit character and reduce the tannins. Small French and American oak barrels to develop the wonderful flavors of rich caramel, vanilla bean, and roasting coffee aromatics. Vibrant color, unbridled berry character and plenty of texture

This was just okay. I didn’t dislike it, but it had a very passive palette and just didn’t do much for me. Would drink this with something rich and flavorful that needed the body but not the follow-through – I kept thinking it would go well with Poutine. The label is gorgeous, I was kinda bummed I didn’t like it more.

Looked for a nice finish to my meal. Full bodied with lovely fruit on the nose and a smooth finish.

Really big ripe fruits, plum and blackberries. Not too sweet despite the berry profile. Really great in its own right...super great value at the price.
