This wine has been blended to capture the soft, subtle depth of its component varietals. Aromas of tricoloured peppercorns hang over notes of raspberry and bitter cocoa. On the palate, a refrain of pepper and soothing warmth turns to cherry licorice and vanilla. Learn More
Black currant, sweet cinnamon and pomegranate can be expected on both the nose and palate of this dense Cabernet Sauvignon. A firm but smooth tannic structure, combined with black pepper, and a mild smokiness provide depth and interest during the wine's lengthy finish. Learn More
This light, easy drinking Pinot possesses aromatic notes of malted chocolate, cherry and licorice. The palate is sprinkled with lively acidity and soft, welcoming tannins. Black cherry and a subtle pepper bring this wine to a pleasant conclusion. Learn More
Like three good friends out on the town this wine is Merlot + Cab. Franc + Cab. Sauvignon: dark, juicy and delicious. Lots of lush berry flavours. The savoury flavours from oak aging add ambiance, like dinner by the fire in the den or the backyard. Learn More
For many"”and for many years"”the benchmark Baco Noir in Ontario hails from Henry of Pelham. Aromas of dark briary berry mingling with wisps of oak segue a balanced and fruity palate-coating wash of black raspberry and mixed field berry adorned with spice, espresso roast and racy, lively acidity. It's medium bodied with a generous mouth feel and a lip-smacking aftertaste. Give it a go with smoked, grilled ribs slathered in BBQ sauce, meat-laden pizza or stews.

Bright, deep purple-red. Delicate aromas of red cherry and peppery blackberry, along with a touch of oak. Enters juicy and fresh, with blueberry jam, underbrush and black pepper flavors. Finishes moderately long and smooth, with modest complexity but a bright whiplash of fruit. Harvested between September 25 and November 3, fermented in stainless steel, then aged for six to eight months in American oak, roughly one-quarter of which was new.

"Deep ruby, the fruit for this inaugural vintage was hand-sorted on the estate, aged 10 months in French oak. It showcases an alluring nose of bright red berries and ripe black cherry, cedar, mineral, dried herbs and spice. Dry, tangy and spicy, it’s medium-full bodied, blending a lively texture with ripe tannin, chocolate-coated coffee bean and a touch of vanilla mingling with cassis, black cherry and raspberry. Well structured, offering good complexity and balance, this wine finishes dry and long. It pairs well with roast beef and Yorkshire pudding."

Enjoy the best of Cabernet and Merlot in a single glass. This Meritage or blend serves up soft, savoury aromas of raspberry, cherry, and spice with more subtle notes of mint and chocolate. On the palate, it's smooth, medium-bodied, and well-structured with fine tannins and an underlying sheen of acidity to balance out the fruit. Finishes with rich, lingering flavours. Overall, a smooth, easy-drinking red that can be enjoyed alone or paired with a variety of foods. Learn More
