Stratus Red 2015
2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.

The 2015 vintage of this full-bodied Niagara red wine is a blend of 23% Cabernet Franc, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 2% Malbec and 11% Petit Verdot grapes. Excellent balance and length on the finish. This wine could age further with grace. Pair with a rare steak and decant 1-2 hours.
