Natalie's Score: 92/100

This is a powerfully decadent red wine! Layers and layers of dark fruit richness ... this wine is all about texture. Dive in and lose yourself! Syrah food pairings: lamb, pepper steak.

FERMENTATION
All fruit for this wine was hand harvested from the Main block assuring only the best quality. The grapes were gently de-stemmed and transferred to stainless steel tanks for whole berry fermentation. Manual punchdowns and machine pumpovers were conducted two to three times daily. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to a combination of new and second fill French and American oak barrels. After twelve months of aging, the wine was racked and blended into stainless steel tanks. Finally the wine was bottled in
February 2013.

WINE DESCRIPTION
The winemaker, John Tummon and the proprietor, Michael Kacaba chose only the best barrels from our Main Block Vineyard for the Proprietor’s Select. These are our oldest vines and this vintage is very characteristic of a cool-climate,
Northern Rhone style red with a more robust yet balanced flavour profile. Elegant on the nose with aromas of dark red cherry, smoke, vanilla and spice. On the palate, tart cherry and cocoa bean is complimented with a hint of smoke and white pepper. Balanced acidity with medium weight make this wine a very food-friendly choice.
