Tasting Notes

This classic Bordeaux-style blend was assembled from Cabernet Franc (77%), Merlot (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8%) carefully sourced from select Niagara Peninsula vineyards. The Merlot contributes vibrant fruit – think plum, blackberry and currant- while the Cabernet and the 16 months in French oak bring darker notes of espresso, spice and a touch of graphite. Full-bodied yet approachable, this wine is a versatile everyday red!

With its ripe fruit, balanced acidity and structure, this versatile assemblage will pair with everyday fare just as well as with your Sunday dinner. Enjoy it with a hearty meat lasagna, a juicy burger or with a roast dinner. It would also work with zesty vegetarian dishes like eggplant parmigiana or ratatouille!

The Producer

Tawse Winery

Situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment, Tawse is a family-owned organic winery. A life-long lover of wine, Burgundy in particular, founder Moray Tawse purchased the Cherry Avenue property in 2001 after realizing the great potential of the Niagara Escarpment as a word-class cool-climate wine region. In 2005, he opened his state-of-the-art winery in Vineland, complete with a six-level, gravity-flow design, geo-thermal system and a wetland bio-filter.

The inspiration for Moray’s eponymous Niagara property came from his love of Burgundian Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Uniting traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology, Tawse and the award-winning winemaking team of Paul Pender and Rene Van Ede, is dedicated to producing terroir-driven wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character.

At Tawse, winemaking begins in the vineyards. We proudly apply rigorous organic methods to every aspect of our production from grape-growing to winemaking and Ecocert seals appear on all wines made from our estate fruit.

Today, having acquired over 200 acres (5 vineyards) and being named Canadian Winery of the year in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2016, Tawse Winery now produces 30,000 cases of wine and has one of the largest portfolios of organic wines in the Niagara region.
