Natalie's Score: 95/100A gorgeously rich nose of fleshy dark fruit, violets and cedar smoke. Elegant with lifted mid-palate flavours, then a clean, long finish that leaves you wanting more. Full-bodied, but not heavy. This wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Surely one of Canada's best producers.
Cabernet Blend food pairings: rich, flavorful meat dishes such as rib eye or tenderloin steak or leg of lamb. Also wonderful with full fat cheeses.

|In the 2008 vintage, our signature "Red Icon" Bordeaux blend consists of 30% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 25% Malbec and 20% Petit Verdot. Aged in new French oak for 18 months. ”The 2008 begins with inviting areas of cassis and spice cake, leading to sweet berry flavours...a touch of black currant and a hint of vanilla & chocolate. The tannins are ripe and silky. The wine is very elegant with a long, long finish.” 94 Points John Schreiner|
