Natalie's Score: 91/100Yum! Mouth-watering, savoury, juicy rich red with deeply delicious black fruit, violets and spice-smoke. Full-bodied, supple and superb.
Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled lamb chops, smoked prime rib with horseradish jus, older sharp cheddar, grilled game meats such as venison or elk.

|Serious Niagara red. Almost purple ink in colour, the bouquet of cassis, cherries, vanilla, violets and mint meet up with flavours of smoke and spice. Full bodied, with a luscious palate of cassis, blackberry and raspberry on the palate with a bold, toasty finish and supple tannin. Hold it until 2012 and delight in it until 2020.|
The warm and dry 2007 vintage was ideal for late-ripening reds. Harvested in early November, 65% off the Old Block, 35% from the Young Block at our Queentson Rd. Vineyard in St. David’s Bench. The grapes came into the winery at an average of 24° brix. Small batch fermentation occurred in one tonne bins with manual punchdown of the cap, followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Individual barrel assessment resulted in the selection of a blend featuring 100% French Oak, 60% new, remainder 1 yr old and neutral barrels. The 2007 Reserve spent 31 months in barrel, giving it depth and maturity despite its bottle youth.
