Nyarai Cellars: Veritas

2012 Veritas

Annan, ON

Winemaker Steve Byfield says he makes the Veritas (taken from the famous saying, “In vino veritas”, or “In wine, truth”) only in optimal years. This is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Malbec.

Savvy Sommelier Tasting Notes: The medium cherry colour belies the power of this big red. It’s full of tart cherry, mint, and tobacco, with mouth-puckering tannins and acidity. There’s a lot of fruit here, with the sour cherry dominant.

Suggested Food Pairing: Steve recommends this with lamb shanks, beef stew, or a well-aged cheese.

Cellaring: This will do well to cellar 5-8 years if you can keep from drinking it right away!
