The great spirit Manitou rewarded the five original tribes of the Iroquois Nation by creating the five lakes. We have selected and blended five grapes to pay tribute to Manitou. Cabernet franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, Merlot and Malbec make up this spectacular Meritage. This wine starts with a nose of anisette and dried prune skins & hints of dark blue fruits with dusty overtones. The mouth starts with wild black raspberries & blueberries turning to a strong black tea nuance. Long smooth tannins with brandied cherries & cranberries finish off this classic Bordeaux style blend.
