Named in honor of the British Troops that defended the very land this wine was grown on, the history is in the bottle.
The 2011 Redcoat is a superb follow-up to our very successful 2010 offering. 2011 is balance of Merlot and Cabernet Franc with just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. Although young, with firm tannins, it is drinking well now and can be enjoyed with a variety of casual cuisine. The nose and palate provide a complex array of flavours and aromas ranging from black cherry, graphite, and cedar to caramel, cinnamon and mocha, to stimulate your senses. Enjoy this wine now, or over the next 5 years.
