Dark red to garnet color. Abundant black cherry, dark chocolate, anise and espresso on the nose. Good structure and concentration across the mid-palate with violet and spice flavors that continue to develop and linger in a long finish

Alder Ridge is the label for the top wines from Corus Brands. Aromatic and complex, it's a young wine that seems to still be raveling itself together. The winemaker attributes the choppiness to cross-flow filtering, but it is meaty and substantial, and showing a supple, varietal, seamless profile: bright cranberry and raspberry fruit, layers of coffee, butterscotch and caramel, and finely polished tannins. - P.G. Ripe and generous, lithe in structure, with fine tannins around a glowing core of black currant, blackberry and savory tones as the finish lingers solidly. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,200 cases made. -HS

Winemaker's Notes:

Fermented in small open-top stainless tanks, then aged for 22 months in 80% new French oak and 20% seasoned American oak. Floral aromas, a rich mild-palate and fruit-forwardness balanced with baker's chocolate, tannins and natural Alder Ridge earthiness that are the heart of this vintage. A beautiful example of what Alder Ridge Vineyard can bring to your table. Drinks best amongst friends and family. Cabernet Sauvignon 78%; Merlot 10%; Malbec 5%; Petit Verdot 5%; Cabernet Frank 2% 1,200 cases produced
