Smoke&Gamble Cabernet Merlot blend
Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Winemaker's Notes
All aging was done in a combination of French and American oak barrels, with the fruit from Norfolk County being held in barrel for over one year.

Aged in French oak for twelve months, this wine drinks beautifully now and will benefit from cellaring.

Although the individual components are great blending partners, we ferment and age every component of both varieties of this blend separately until final blending just prior to bottling

Tasting Notes
Nose of dark berry fruits, with hints of anise and forest floor earthiness. The palate is elegant with fine tannins and persistent length.

Merlot adds chocolate and rich, fruity flavors to the wine, while the Cabernet Sauvignon makes the wine tannic, age-worthy, and powerful. Cabernet Franc adds distinct acidity and dark-fruit flavors.

Food Pairing
Best with beef, lamb and game, and will also pair well with dishes enhanced with black pepper and cloves. Other great pairings include rich duck, quail, roast lamb and beef.
