Stratus - 2016 Red
Origin: Canada / Niagara Peninsula / Niagara-on-the-Lake
Grapes: 25% Cab Franc, 23% Merlot, 18% Cab Sauv, 12% Syrah, 10% Malbec, 7% Tannat, 5% Petit Verdot
Nose: Savoury & fruity; concentrated dark cherry, plum, cinnamon, clove & violet
Palate: Complex & spicy with notes of anise, pepper, tobacco & tar. Smooth tannins with a long finish.
Notes: This is a delicious, well-rounded "old world-style" wine; it's where I point people who usually turn up their noses at Ontario reds.
Pair with: Grilled, roasted or braised red meats or game.
Ok for vegans
