The 20th vintage of the Nota Bene is comprised of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and new this year, 1% of Petit Verdot. This is the first vintage crafted by our winemaker, Master of Wine Ross Wise. On the nose, this wine has pronounced aromas of ripe black fruits like mulberries, blackberries, and plums. On the palate, the grippy tannins mixed with flavours of blackberries, mocha, and dried herbs will pair perfectly with barbequed ribs or a hearty steak. This wine is deep and complex and can be decanted to enjoy this evening or cellared for up to 10 years.

 

Customers who purchase 12 bottles of the 2018 Nota Bene will receive free access to an online party on July 17 featuring recording artist Steven Page joined by Jason Priestley, Erin Cebula, Prevail, and 2018 Olympic winner, Kelsey Serwa. Black Hills’ Winemaker and Master of Wine Ross Wise kicks off the celebration with a guided tasting of his 2018 Nota Bene.

Customers also receive a VIP Cabana Tasting at the winery and free shipping.

Vineyard Notes
A hot spring and warm and dry 2018 summer had the vineyards well advanced and in great condition leading in to the fall. Following this, a very cool August and September slowed ripening to a crawl. Thankfully dry conditions and a lack of frost events allowed the grapes to achieve ripe and pure fruit flavours, while still retaining fresh acidity and great fruit aromas. White wine grapes were harvested slightly later than average but still achieved great flavour ripeness and balance.
