Sandhill Small Lots One
66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Syrah, 3.5% Cabernet Franc, 1.5% Merlot
Deep garnet colour with an intriguing bouquet of black currant, violet, leather, vanilla, sweet oak and black licorice. A full-bodied wine with soft, drying tannins, moderate acidity and a terrific mouth-feel. Ripe fruit flavours of black currant, blackberry and blueberry are enhanced by notes of vanilla and sweet oak. Notes of tart black fruits and sweet spice linger on the finish.
Pairs well with grilled red meats; London Broils; beef stews; rich Portobello mushroom stews; braised meats; roasted leg of lamb; two year old Canadian cheddar
