A classic Meritage, our 2012 Eleventh Post reflects the warm, near perfect 2012 vintage, the cooling breezes from both Lake Ontario and the Niagara River and a commitment to let the ripe fruit and not the barrel define the wine.
A beautiful example of our Niagara River terroir. Rich and structured yet smooth and balanced, this wine dominates with 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Seductive aromas of deep red fruits, raspberries, sweet barrel spice and cedar lead into brooding notes of cassis and sweet cigar carefully wrapped by ultra plush tannins of great length. Will benefit from decanting and will age gracefully for years to come.
