A job well done as Malvoire winemaker, Shiraz Mottiar, has turned in a serious Cabernet Sauvignon from a challenging red wine vintage in Niagara. On the full end of the spectrum, there is a complex mix of cassis, chocolate, green olive, violets, tobacco, spice, cocoa and vanilla. Great length and ready to serve alongside a rack of lamb.
Textbook Napa, featuring blackberry, cassis, plum and mint wrapped around spice and vanilla. The palate is smooth with a juicy edge, which is the hallmark of the 2014 vintage. Drink over the next three years.
Utilizing all 5 Bordeaux varietals, this is a gorgeous red blend from the Black Sage Bench. It shows a range of dark and red fruits on the nose with interesting herbs, spice, tobacco and leather notes. It’s refined on the palate, not heavy, with intense berries and interwoven with balancing spice and fine tannins.
Ruby-coloured with a nose of violets, mint and raspberries wrapped in oak spice; medium-bodied, dry, firmly structured, elegant with cherry and raspberry flavours topped with a floral note. Give it 5 years for the ultimate drinking experience.
Pale yellow with a milky haziness and generous, lasting foam. Intense nose of exotic fruits, notably mango, hops and hints of white pepper. Light taste, low alcohol (3.9%) and a fair amount of bitterness make it a very refreshing beverage that goes down easy.
