Lots of heft to this one, demonstrating that in warm vintages like 2012, Niagara winemakers can pull out all the stops and make a red that mimics the heavyweights from warmer regions of the world. That said, there is a distinct lack of subtlety and charm here - there is underlying blackberry fruit to be sure, but dusty oakiness and furry tannins dominate. Perhaps it will round out with age, but I wouldn't count on it.
