Named after a very special place in our estate vineyard, the 2013 Eleventh Post offers a rewarding, elegant and authentic reflection of the vintage. A complex although accessible blend dominated evenly by Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot plays a supporting role providing alluring perfume and balance. Each estate varietal was barrel-aged separately for over 30 months before assemblage. Offers lovely aromas of black currants complimented by touches of earthiness and spice, sprinkled with wisps of plum. On the palate, up-front tannin gives way to a silky-smooth mouth feel filled with layers of dark cassis, tobacco and star anise. Underlying suggestion of dried cranberry and fennel extend on this lengthy, intense finish.
4+ stars. “A beautiful wine that could be savoured all day long. For the 2013 vintage, one of the best red blends I have tasted from Niagara.” – Michael Pinkus
