Ravine Sand & Gravel Redcoat Vineyard 2011, VQA Niagara Peninsula
Medium-bodied with flavours of licorice, plum and dried herbs. The long finish has lingering notes of barrel spice, dark fruit and good tannic grip. An assemblage of 46% merlot, 39% cab franc and 15% cab sauv.
Matches well with slow braised veal, crispy-skinned duck confit or tortière.
