Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has a bouquet of blackberry, black currant, vanilla notes, and a hint of graphite. Flavours of dark berries, soft toasted oak, and some vanilla on the palate, with semi-soft tannins and a long, lingering finish.
Vineyard Notes
The summer of 2014 was particularly hot in the Okanagan Valley for extended periods, and stretched out into the fall with warm days and nights. This seemed like perfect weather for grape growing, yet the heat did provide some challenges for our vineyard team. Harvest was delayed for the Merlot grapes to reach peak flavour development and slightly higher alcohol levels, while varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz thrived in the heat on the Black Sage bench. Overall, 2014 was an excellent year for Okanagan wines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked in early November, crushed, destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was pumped over twice daily for two weeks and was then transferred into oak barrels and allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 14 months in 65% French and 35% American oak, with 20% of the barrels being new.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair with roast beef tenderloin, chargrilled steak, herbed rack of lamb, and aged cheddar cheese.

Great wine to receive as part of our membership. Decanted for a hour and found it to be exceptional. Pleasantly suprised to see what a deal this was. Can't wait to sit some for a couple years and discover it all over again. Hope you enjoy ig as much as we did.
