A full-bodied, juicy red wine that's smooth and supple. This robust red wine is made from grapes grown close to Ottawa, a blend that leads with the hybrid grape Marquette at 58%. The wine offers aromas of purple and black plums, blueberries and blackberries. Try it with a hearty meat dish.

Marquettage food pairings: prime rib au jus, Yorkshire pudding.
