This wine was co-fermented (the grape varieties were blended prior to fermentation) in a large stainless steel tank and macerated for 5 weeks to extract optimal colour and flavour from the grape skins. The wine was then pressed and aged with French and American oak while being exposed to small amounts of oxygen (micro-oxygenation) to help the wine soften and develop.
On the nose this wine shows notes of dark fruit, (blackberry, cassis, dark cherry, and mulberry.) oak, (cedar, cigar box, vanilla) with spicy clove and cinnamon. The palate shows a nice balance between smooth tannins, soft acidity, fresh fruit and a lingering oak and spice finish.
Suggested Food Pairings:
Best paired with BBQ’d, roasted, or smoked anything.
