Cabernet Merlot 2019
Rosehall Run
Region: Ontario

Tasting Notes

This elegant blend lends suppleness to the palate. Medium-bodied with notes of crushed red fruit and firm acidity.

Made from two of the world’s most famous grapes, this classic pairing forms the foundation of the “Bordeaux Blend”. Cabernet Merlot wines can run the gamut in terms of style depending on where they are grown and the wine maker’s preference. Generally, they are stronger, complex wines with solid fruit expression and good acidity.

Nestled between Lake Ontario in the North, Lake Erie to the South and the Niagara River to the East, the Niagara Peninsula is one of Canada’s top wine producing regions. The moderating effects of the bodies of water create a moderate temperature during the growing season, similar to France’s Bordeaux and Burgundy regions. With almost 15,000 acres under vine, Niagara produces a number of grape varieties, most famously, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Cabernet Franc.

Grown in a selection of vineyards from top Niagara peninsula growers.

Aged in French and American oak for ten months.
