Ravine Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 50% estate fruit and 50% grower fruit from Niagara-on-the-Lake. Gentle hand picking before a 20-day wild fermentation with twice daily punchdowns helped extract the maximum colour and flavour for this vintage. The 9-month aging program in 225L French Oak barriques developed well-integrated tannins that are quite ripe for Ontario Cabernet Sauvignon making this a particularly soft and supple expression.
Tasting Note: The 2014 Ravine Cabernet Sauvignon’s colour sits between purple and ruby. It has aromas of dark chocolate, blackberries and toasted vanilla. The palate is smooth and velvety in texture with firm tannins that will soften and fade with age. Drink now to 2020.
Food Pairing: Pair this wine with grilled red meat and/or aged cheddar cheeses.
