Look for aromas of dark cherry, plum, blackberry, with a hint of spice & floral. It’s sweet on the entry with flavours of dark berries and blueberry and blackberry. It’s super fruity, easy drinking with soft tannins and a smooth finish. Chill slightly.

Growing Conditions

The grape varieties used in this demi-sweet red blend are: 57% Zweigelt, 20% Marechal Foch, and 13% Pinot Noir and 10% Merlot. Each of these unique varieties was fermented separately and then barrel-aged for 14 months in 10% new French and 15% new American oak barrels. Zweigelt and Pinot Noir Icewines were then added just prior to bottling for a touch of sweetness.
