Full-bodied, nearly opaque, and inky in colour. Deep, dark fruit flavours jump from the glass, wafting plum, vanilla spice, and blackberry. Rich tannins and pleasant acidity round out the mid-palate, leaving a lingering finish.
A very hot, dry summer brought an early harvest for many across the province. In September, the warm temperatures continued with little precipitation which meant that the disease pressure was very low, resulting in clean fruit which required little sorting. Harvested October 26-28. This vintage is rich and hearty, full of deep dark fruits, rich tannins, and a smooth palate.
