A blend of two small blocks with two distinct French clones planted side-by-side in the hard red clay-based soils of Lincoln Lakeshore at the base of the Beamsville Bench, this wine was fermented in small lots and hand-plunged throughout fermentation. It was aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 20 months before racking and bottled without filtration. It appears dark ruby-purple in the glass with aromas of fresh black cherries, blackberries, cracked pepper, smoke and tobacco. The palate is full but fresh with well-structured tannins that will lend age-ability to this wine.
