LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
TASTING NOTE: A field of ripe berry aromas jump out of the glass; blackberries, raspberries, blueberries. Toasty oak, lavender and smoked meat notes follow suite. The palate is opulent and rich offering layers of blackcurrant and ripe raspberry, mocha and freshly ground pepper. A fresh grapefruit pith acidity and substantial tannins provide the firm structure for this bold red to develop for quite some time.
