Persuasion ‘Dragon Blend’
Some vintages are aggressive and come on strong; they insist on being noticed. Others are smoother, more balanced, more confident of their worth. They persuade you to pay attention. And, with every glass, convince you of their superb quality. Relax and enjoy the fine art of Persuasion.
This blend of Russian River Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Chalk Hill Merlot exhibits a dark ruby purple color along with classic wet stone and crushed rock minerality. Intense notes of black currant and floral incense add intrigue to this medium bodied wine. A touch of sweet tannin with an overall sense of elegance creates a deep structure. This wine is delicious now but will age gracefully for years to come.

Tasting note by Jennifer Huether, Master Sommelier, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd:
Appearance: Dark purple core with violet rim.
Nose: Clean and upfront. Dark concentrated black currants, mulberry, white pepper, cocoa, licorice, black earth, black plum, and vanilla spice coming from supple oak treatment.
Palate: Dry and full bodied, medium plus acidity, licorice laced with violets, ripe black currants, black plums, cocoa, vanilla, silky and velvety texture with a dusty minerality on the finish. Solid and concentrated with dense but plush tannins and enough freshness to carry this bold wine.
