Description : Intense ruby colour with purple highlights.  A nose charmer with dominant aromas of cherry, black currant and liquorish.

“Supple, vigorous and moderately fruity.  Nice overall balance.”

Nadia Fournier – Le Guide du vin Phaneuf 2013

“Since the vineyard opened 30 years ago, 4 weeks have been added to the growing season, allowing for optimal red wine production conditions.  The original intense bouquet tones down after a while.  Includes aromas of red berries, dried grapes, prunes and damp earth. Fresh taste with upple tannins.”

Robert Rheault – Le Canada Français
