Sextus is considered a “unicorn” by wine critics because of the difficulty in getting all six of the old world varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Carménère into one bottle. The Founder, the late Richard Karlo, was a big lover of Bordeaux blends. He wanted to prove Canada could achieve such quality. With high-toned aromatics, stewed dark bramble fruits, allspice and dark chocolate, Sextus is immensely complex and ever-changing in the glass. It has concentrated dark purple fruits - plums, cassis, blackberry and black raspberry with flecks of wood spice. Sextus is taut, yet super-balanced with a rich mid-palate and an extended finish lifted by fresh acidity. 83 cases produced.
