California Specialty

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Syrah. Sourced from Lodi, California.

Cabernet Syrah blends are common, but the addition of Zinfandel is a California creation. These popular varietals thrive in Lodi, which tends to grow softer, more fruit-forward reds. Cabernet brings its signature blackcurrant flavours, ample acid and tannin. Zinfandel adds jammy berries, with Syrah contributing plum and pepper. Together they make a bold wine with abundant berry flavours and rich tannins, making it an ideal base for something a little extra.

Steeped in Gretzky Whisky Oak

In a Winexpert first, juice for this limited release was pre-oaked in-house, steeping for months with whisky oak chips specially sourced from Wayne Gretzky Estates Winery and Distillery. During this six-month steep, the juice absorbs flavours and tannin from the whisky oak, adding roundness to the body, elevating tannin, and infusing it with nuanced sweet spice, brown sugar and vanilla character. These whisky-influenced sweet notes round out a bold wine rich with flavours of blackcurrant, jammy wildberry and plum, underlaid with mocha, spice, and smoky toasted notes.

Food Pairings

Try aged cheeses, chicken mole, or bison burgers topped with roasted red pepper and caramelized onions. A great option for beef brisket, spicy sausage, or black bean chilli.
