2015 Red Conception

2015 Red Conception

VQA Niagara Peninsula

The 2015 Red Conception is a unique blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, crafted separately in small lots before being assembled. The name was inspired by our Tufford Road Vineyard, once a very popular “parking” spot among locals. As it turns out, more than just great wine was conceived in our vineyards…

Tasting Notes:  Great color intensity, with inviting aromas of black cherry, vanilla, cola and baked raspberry. Midweight on the palate with soft tannins and a round mouthfeel.

Cellar Potential: Drinking best between 2016 and 2020.

Availability:  Winery, select restaurants, LCBO, and online.

LCBO # 189183

Release Date: Sept 1, 2016


Each variety was vinified separately and aged for just over one year in oak barrels from selected coopers.  The wines selected for the final blend were chosen for their approachability; focus on fruit-driven aromatics, soft tannins, and rich mouthfeel.  After several blending trials of each of the barrels in our cellar, the individual barrels were selected for the final blend.
