2013 Poetica Red/750ml
"This blend of cabernet sauvignon (74%), cabernet franc (23%) and petit verdot (3%) spent 24 months in barrel (a quarter new). Only a small volume was made, and the bottles are well worth seeking out. The flavours are delicious – ripe, robust and concentrated, but still with some restraint that recalls the cool conditions of Niagara Peninsula. The well-measured acid contributes some juiciness to the texture, and the tannins are ripe and nicely integrated. Expect to enjoy the freshness of this red through to the early 2020s."
