Our flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But we don't make it every year. To be considered an "Equuleus year" each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. 2010 was considered one of Niagara's greatest vintages and our Equuleus is a testament to that belief. Aged for one year in French Tronçais and Allier oak barrels, this wine is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years.

Our flagship red wine, Equuleus is a classically styled blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot. But we don’t make it every year. To be considered an “Equuleus year” each of the three grape varieties must have achieved at least 23.5º Brix at harvest. This 2014 is the follow-up to the 2012 vintage, Ontario Wine Awards “Red Wine of the Year” in 2017. Aged for 16 months in 1/3 new French oak, 2/3 in non-new French oak then the blend rests in French oak casks for several months. The result is rich and complex with flavours of cassis and dark chocolate. Equuleus is ready to drink now, but will continue to develop in the bottle for at least another 5-10 years.

The name Equuleus comes from the “Little Horse” constellation, best seen when it rises in the night sky every September, the traditional start of our harvest. This equine symbol celebrates Paul's other passion -- Egyptian Arabian horses which are stabled at the Paul Bosc Estate, the Bosc family’s home vineyard.
