Winemaker’s Selection Sophisticated Summer Reds


Winemaker’s Notes

Roberto DiDomenico has selected three elegant reds that are perfect for a warm summer evening. Enjoy some cheese and charcuterie pairings with our Pinot Noir paired with ‘Sea Change’ Smoked Salmon Paté, Cabernet Franc Reserve match with ‘Mountain Oak’ Gouda Gold and Magician Shiraz Pinot Noir complemented by Nduja, a spicy Calabrian spread made with noble cuts of pork that will melt onto toasted bread. ‘Niagara Specialty Meats’ has created their own recipe that is seasoned with smoked and sweet pepper paste, spicy chillies and a mixture of spices. Purchase price of $125 includes invitation to a virtual tasting on Sunday July 11th or Sunday June 25th at 6 pm with a resident sommelier and shipping in Ontario.

Tasting Notes

Pinot Noir- Light and dark red fruit aromas on the nose with cherry, rosemary and black pepper notes. A firm acidity on the palate makes this an excellent food wine. A natural match with lamb, game and veal or serve chilled with salmon steaks and don’t forget to season with rosemary and black pepper for a perfect match.

Cabernet Franc Reserve- A brilliant glowing hue introduces a complex wine with notes of cherry, violet, and fragrant eucalyptus. On the palate there’s a slight perception of spice woven into the rich fruit and silky tannins carry the finish. Pair with pork loin or lamb with roasted or grilled eggplant.

Magician Shiraz Pinot Noir- Silky tannins and dark berry fruit on this well-structured wine create a long smooth finish. A balanced acidity interplays with black pepper, spice, black cherry, blackberry and chocolate notes. Good for grilled meats, roasts, especially lamb and hearty stews. Also a nice evening companion when paired with a sharp cheese or dark chocolate.
