WINE MAKING
- Harvested from selected vineyard sites within the Niagara Peninsula.
- A classic blend of 47% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Merlot.
- Aged for 12 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels (25% of the American oak are new, remainder are neutral barrels) with full malolactic fermentation.

FLAVOUR PROFILE
? Purple black with a bright purple rim colour and a fruit-forward bouquet of blue plum, cherry, and red and black berries complemented by notes of sweet cedar, vanilla and dried herbs.
? A medium-bodied Meritage with velvety tannins.
? Flavours of rich black and red fruits are dusted with sweet spice.
? Juicy black fruits, sweet vanilla and cedar linger on the finish.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM:
? Silver Medal – Grand Harvest Awards, Sonoma California 2009.
? Silver Medal – Canadian Wine Awards 2009.
? 4 ½ stars out of 5 – “This is the first Meritage produced at Peller and likely the top red in the Private Reserve lineup… a crowd-pleasing wine with plump, juicy dark fruit and vanilla notes and velvety tannins.” Vines magazine, September/October 2009.
