Rosewood Estate
2012 Lock, Stock, & Barrel

Rosewood Lane is located in Beamsville on the Niagara Peninsula. Rosewood's founders, Eugene & Renata Roman, were early fans of Niagara wineries. As they sampled the region's offerings, they developed a curiosity, passion and respect for the locally-produced wines.

They began as beekeepers slowing moving into mead and finally grape wines. This all started in 2000 with the purchase of the land. Their first vintage was 2006. Rosewood listed in Wine Access' Top 25 Wineries in Canada list . 2010 - New "Mead" category created for the 2010 Canadian Wine Awards - Rosewood wins 3 mead medals. 2011 - Rosewood listed in InterVin Wine Compeitition, Top 10 Wineries. (Ranked 8th).

Ross Wise is the master winemaker. Luke Orwinski is the vineyard manager and winemaker.

2011 Lock, Stock, & Barrel just won the trophy for the best red wine of year at the Canadian Championships

Rosewood's inaugural vintage of Lock, Stock, & Barrel , is crafted to explore the application of new world innovation and old world techniques. This unique assemblage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and is a blend of 94% free-run and 6% press-run. On the nose dark fruit and intense aromas of cherries, plums, black currant, and dark chocolate. The palate erupts with robust fruit, while soothing acidity lingers on. Pair with venison, grilled steak and unique game meats. This elegant yet bold wine is a true cellar candidate. Decant for 1 to 2 hours or cellar until 2018.

The ICBO called 2011 Lock,Stock & Barrel a master piece.
