Profile

Smell

Inviting aromas of ripe red currant, raspberries, strawberries, lavender, Iris and baking spices and just a touch of black pepper invigorate the nose. Floral and spicy there is a lot going on in the glass with this one.

Taste

Boldly unique, this wine's bright acidity is the first thing that stands out, designed with food friendly in mind this wine has a lot of Character. Dried Fruit and notes of pomegranate, cranberry, blueberry and fig dominate with earthy undertones complimented by a long cinnamon, baking spice and peppered finish.

Pairing

Pairs well with grilled tomahawk steak, Elk or bison steak, lamb chops, roasted potatoes, Fire roasted red bell peppers and venison.

Aromas and Flavours

Pomegranate

The scent of pomegranate is subtle, but has a distinct sweet-tart and 'winey' flavour.

Cranberry

Sweet and tart, just like the cranberry sauce at your family's Thanksgiving table.

Fig

Reminiscent of coconut, figs have a slight grassiness to them and a hint of sweet spice.

Pepper

A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.

Cinnamon

The scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls, straight out of the oven - ooey gooey goodness!

Description

A well known local, Calgary based sommelier Darren Fabian set out on his journey to achieve his dream of creating his own wine. A wine of great quality yet affordable that he knew would excite and delight the very customers he serves at Modern Steak where he is the director of hospitality. Darren wanted to create a wine that would also pair perfectly with many dishes, especially items hot off the grill. Darren partnered with an old friend Joan Angel Liberia of Edetaria winery to make and bottle this Grenache/ Cinsault blend using only the finest grapes from the best vineyard sites on the estate. A rare wine with only 200 bottles ever made a lot of care and thought went into the production process. Produced in Terra Alta, Spain in one of the oldest vineyard sites in the area but designed to go with Canadian cuisine this is truly something unique you will be delighted to experience.

95% Grenache & 5% Cinsault. Enjoy drinking it now or in the next 5 years at a temperature of 18 C.
