Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Vibrant dark cherries, blackberries, black currant, chocolate, vanilla notes. The palate is full of luscious berries, ripe plums, dark chocolate and mocha notes. The wine is full and rich with a very long finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 season began with above average temperatures causing an early bud break. This early harvest was tempered with cooler temperatures and rain in June and July. In the fall, there were warm days but the nights started to cool which helped balance the acid. Harvest started early to mid-October and the lack of damaging frost allowed the grapes to develop bold flavours and the tannins to ripen. Thus the 2016 reds are full of fruit flavour, with mouth coating tannins and great structure.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes came in looking and tasting great. They were fermented in stainless steel tanks and pumped over twice daily for 2 weeks before being pressed and moved to barrels. The wine then went through malolactic fermentation and was aged in a blend of American and French Oak barrels for 14-16 months before being racked off.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairing suggestions are grilled steak or lamb, baked pasta, pork, aged gruyere or cheddar, burgers, and classic BBQ ribs

We got one of these in our wine club box a few months ago. Absolutely Spectacular! We have been looking for it ever since! Sold out everywhere. Please make lots more for next year! We'll be by to pick it up.

Due to some political archaic rule between Alberta and British Columbia I had to order this, ship it to my son in BC and drive there to pick it up and yes, it was that good.
