TASTING NOTE: LENS (Lake Erie North Shore) has a long growing season that permits the grapes to develop ripe, full-flavoured fruit while maintaining the balance integral to fine wines. The warm temperatures allow winemakers in LENS a great range of varietals to work with. Syrah, which loves the sun and warmth, thrives there. This one is soft and approachable, with complex suggestions of red and black fruit, chocolate, toast, cured meat and black pepper spice. Perfect for burgers or ribs.
