This savoury, peppery red is a blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon grapes. It's full-bodied and delicious. You can't beat this price for this quality. Yum!

Food pairings: grilled red meats, hard chesses such as aged cheddar, or pasta bolognese.

Reviews and Ratings

2010 was a very good vintage for red varieties: hot and dry with a long growing season. The Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon have concentrated, intense aromas and complex structure as a result. This blend of Cab Sauv and Syrah is a good example of both varieties from Niagara. The grapes were cold macerated for 48 hours before fermentation. I continued to macerate the grapes for 3 days to extract tannins and polysaccharides that help build the structure and body of the wine. Both wines underwent barrel aging for 8 months before being blended. It displays peppery notes, red currant, and plum with a nice acidity and balance on the palate. Marco Piccoli, Winemaker

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
