2012 Veritas

$27.95
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!
