A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon (Okanagan Valley, BC) is perfectly partnered with an easygoing Merlot (Paso Robles, CA) in this delectably versatile blend.
The ripe berry fruit flavours, structured tannins, and firm acidity combine to create a wine that truly shines. The addition of peated and unpeated oak chips from genuine Whisky barrels adds nuances of vanilla, tobacco and spice.
Food Pairings: Keep it simple with pepperoni pizza or be creative and pair it with a rich, roasted leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic.
