"This bottle has been one of my favourite wine discoveries of the year. It's vibrant and tart Gamay, with gorgeous perfumed aromatics—fresh herbs and black pepper. It's a blend of grapes from Prince Edward County and Niagara (65% and 35%) and there were only 98 cases produced."

Jake Skakun, Wine Writer (


"The nose is smoky, peppery red fruit, embracing raspberry, cherry, and a hit of cranberry, with the slightest sweet spice notes in the background. The palate is juicy, with the right amount of tart and sweet red fruit playing a yin and yang on the tongue. The wine is both smooth and slightly astringent – playing tricks on the palate. Love the complexity. Tannins are present but in check, with a nice streak of acidity running through the mouth. They even drew off some juice to concentrate this beauty. Lovely, food-friendly wine (and well worth it, IMHO)."

Shawn McCormick (


Deeply coloured with juicy notes of cranberry, red licorice and white pepper on the nose, the palate is fruity with medium tannins. A slow and gentle ferment of 65% County and 35% Niagara grapes, harvested separately, then blended and aged in neutral French oak barrels for 8 months. Enjoy now through 2019.
