Cellar Potential
Drinking best 2018-2021.

Winemaking Notes
Select lots of grapes grown in vineyards throughout Niagara were vinified and aged separately using traditional red winemaking techniques, before being blended in the cellar.
The wines selected for the final blend were chosen for their approachability; focus on fruit-driven aromatics, soft tannins, and rich mouthfeel.

Food Pairings
Enjoy it with all the classic BBQ favourites such as ribs, burgers and steak.
