Produced by the Speck Brothers Henry Of Pelham's Family Tree Red 2017 is a rich and full-bodied blend of 30% Syrah, 25% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Baco Noir. The estate vineyards belong to family and friends and why the wine is so named "Family Tree". Ripe blue and blackberry fruit, sweet cake spice and a smattering of ripe red cherry and raspberry flavours wrapped up in wood smoke can be found on the palate. Pair it with grilled chicken breasts.

Food pairings: grilled pork ribs, grilled steak, vegetarian pizza.

Reviews and Ratings

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Very interesting blend from Niagara from Ontario that tastes like somewhere warmer. Deep spicy notes of plum, toffee, black pepper, balanced by cherry, raspberry, parsley. The freshness makes this a great food pairing that can go with poultry, pork and would be particularly good for a cheese/charcuterie board as it would pair with a range of cheeses. And I good value on top of that!
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely and versatile blend of 30% Syrah, 25% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Baco Noir. Really nicely balanced between fruit, smoke and spice. Aromas of black plum, blackberry, smoke, and black pepper. Medium body+, with some light tannins, and medium acidty. Lots of black fruit on the palate and a hint of pepper and smoke on the finish. Enjoy with your first spring BBQ of the season.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Full aromas of black berries and oak on the nose. A noted herbaceousness on the mid palate and full dry style.
Henry Of Pelham's Family Tree Red 2017 is produced by the Speck Brothers and is a red blend of 30% Syrah, 25% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Baco Noir sourced from their estate vineyards that belong to family and friends and the reason the wine is named "Family Tree". Lots of ripe blue and blackberry fruit, sweet cake spice with a smattering of ripe red cherry and raspberry flavours wrapped up in wood smoke. In short, it's delicious. Pour and pair with an equally juicy grilled hanger steak. - Community Wine Reviews
