Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This full-bodied red wine has aromas of mocha, blueberry, cherry, Saskatoon berry pie, spice and vanilla. On the palate, the grippy tannins balance the rich, dense, meaty flavours of smoke, spice, dark cherry, cassis, Italian plum, orange zest, chocolate and blackberries.
Vineyard Notes
Liquidity’s Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc plantings from 2009 and Merlot from 2005 have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 2.6 short tons per acre. 2014 had frost issues in early April that may have damaged the Chardonnay buds. In 2014 we had a pessimistic approach to the season and wondered if this was going to be a repeat of 2009 & 2013 with an early frost/cold/rain.  We hedged our bets and cropped the fruit loads to moderate levels.
Production Notes
389 cases
Winemaker Notes
A hotter than normal growing season was responsible for beautiful ripeness and flavors when the fruit was harvested in late October. Each variety was destemmed, crushed and fermented separately. Mostly small lot fermentations with vigorous cap management and delestage throughout, each had approximately 14-16 days of skin contact before pressing off to French oak barrels (25% new). The wine was barrel aged for 15 months, during which it was racked two times and blended for bottling in February 2016.
Food Pairing Notes
Roasted game meats, peppercorn steak, rich slow-cooker stews or strong aged cheeses will stand up to this rich wine.
