2012 Red Conception

GOLD MEDAL – 2014 National Wine Awards of Canada

“Aromas of dark briary berry, pipe tobacco and graphite open a gorgeous, concentrated river of lively red and black berry fruit, tangy red cherry and rich, black plum compote, coating the palate in grainy-textured waves. It’s medium bodied with a solid tannin underpinning, good balance and structure. This vintage’s blend is 68% Cab Franc, 18% Cab Sauv, 8% Syrah and 6% Petit Verdot.

2012 Syrah

"Involved aromas of espresso roast, exotic spice, roasted herbs and rich, ripe dark cherry/berry fruit jump from the glass. This coats the palate with a seamless gusher of gorgeous flavour—black currant and sweet ripe mulberry mingling with wisps of cassis and bittersweet chocolate. It’s medium-plus bodied with persistent purity of fruit, über creamy-smooth texture and a complex, lingering aftertaste. This is balanced, structured and oozing with charisma and appeal."****1/2 (Vic Harradine, Wine Current)

"From vineyards on St. Davids Bench, this was aged in French and American barrels, a third of them new. It’s an impressive syrah that shows how the variety can perform in Ontario in favourable years. Look for ripe fruit with a little ripe-sweetness at the core and radiating layers of nuanced flavours. The acidity adds some juiciness to the attractive, slightly edgy texture, and the tannins are ripe, sleek, and quite supple. Drink it now and through to 2020."****1/2 (Rod Phillips, WinePointer)

Dense, deep purple in colour with aromas of dark fruit, black pepper, rosemary and toasted oak. Rich on the palate with ripe tannins, good acidity, and a long finish. VQA Niagara Penninsula.
