LCBO Vintages Release

 

This vintage comes from the estate vineyard, Adam and Eve, in the Northern Russian River Valley, as well as some favorite vineyards in Sonoma Valley. The 2014 is 91% Merlot blended with small amounts of Petite Sirah and Syrah for complexity.

 

The aroma of the wine shows fresh huckleberries, light brown spice and nuances of toasty oak. On the palate the wine is medium-full bodied with classic Bordeaux proportions, wonderful concentration, with flavours of cherry, rich chocolate and spiced cake. The wine finishes with perfectly balanced texture and flavour and a refreshing brightness. Enjoy with red meats, duck and pasta with rich sauces.
