Clear, pretty ruby color with Violet, blueberry and mocha aromas. A bit too much overly-charred oak on the nose and palate. Soft and silky texture, moderate tannins and crisp acidity. More body than expected from a cool climate wine - this really shows the growing importance of Niagra

Rich and tasty, pleasing on a lot of levels, but not super distinctive for the varietal or the region.

Vary happy to see #Niagara #Ontario wines in NYC, especially this @StratusWines bottling. Quite elegant.

The star of the show. The undisputed champ of Niagara. Concentration and complexity. Stratus only knows how to make delicious world-class wines. Not just good for Canada, everyone should taste these wines.
