I suspect many will pair this with Halloween. Zombie allusions aside, it’s serious wine. But – fair warning – it’s based mainly on maréchal foch, the hardy hybrid red variety with an assertively musky-gamey quality. Inky-purple in colour, it’s full-bodied and chunky and packs a punch of dark berries, with notes of herbs and earth. Best with hearty stews or juicy burgers. Available in Ontario.
