Really like this wine. Shocked that it was Niagara because of the ripeness. But underlying the blue and black fruits,...

This blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah has a medium-high intensity nose that's smoky with white pepper, dark currant and cassis aromas. It's medium-bodied with a rounded mouthfeel and fresh acids. Spiced mid-palate. It has refined tannins and some coffee notes on the medium-long finish. Should have wide appeal. Tasted Jan/2015.
