Stratus Red (2010 Library Release)


Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario


Take advantage of this rare opportunity to scoop up a stellar back vintage from the legendary Stratus Vineyard. With an intensely ripe and pungent nose of mature cabernet sauvignon fruit, dark ripe berries, pencil shavings, and cedar the 2010 Stratus exhibits the classical attributes of a fine Bordeaux/Meritage blend. The tannins are very fine and tight with an assertive grip that belies the warmer 2010 vintage pointing to considerable cellaring potential. The wine is all barrel aged for 20 months in a combination of new (15%), second-fill (33%) and older French cooperage.
