For at least the last 15 years I have been consistently singing the praises of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot when it is grown judiciously in the Niagara River sub-appellation.
The previous 2012 vintage of Two Sisters Vineyards‘ Stone Eagle was for me one one of the most polished examples of such a wine, and so I was intrigued to hear of an expansion of the Stone Eagle range for the 2103 vintage.
We sat down in Two Sister’s barrel room with Winemaker Adam Pearce as he ran us through these new wines.
