Mocha and dark chocolate on the nose of this Niagara red wine blend from toasty oak aging. Full-bodied and smooth. This Ontario red wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah that was aged in French and American oak barrels. Try it with meat lovers pizza or grilled pork chops.

Food pairings: pork chops, pizza with meat topping.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Cabernet SAuvignon and Merlot. Red berry flavours with plum, floral and toasted oak on the nose. Palate is medium+-bodied, medium acidity, smooth with flavour characteristics of cherry tarts, sweet spices, violets and a long vanilla finish. Nice Niagara BBQ wine. Points for value.
Tasted: May 2015
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely blend that harmonizes a variety of flavours. Aromas include floral and spicy notes, mingling with ripe berry and some oak. Palate brings a nice mix of those same flavours, integrated well with some medium tannin and acid. Finish is quite long. Could pair this with a variety of grilled meats, but would be great with pork. A nice wine that is a pretty decent price too. (March 2016)
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fielding Estates’s Red Conception shows delicious plum, dark berries, baking spice, and roasted peppers. Baking spice and dark berries make this silky smooth full bodied wine a great value priced option for BBQ fare this summer. Tasted April 2015. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

A blend of Cab Franc, Syrah, Cab Sauvignon, and Merlot from Ontario's Niagara Peninsula. Ruby red with a garnet hue, there's plenty of rich dark fruit alongside the fresh herbs and pepper. A great pairing with herb roasted lamb chops. Tasted July 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The 2012 vintage of this Niagara red wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. The wine was matured in both French and American oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
