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
A very cold winter led to a spring that saw record levels of rainfall, resulting in explosive vine growth. This was followed by some of the warmest temperatures ever recorded for the first week of August in the Okanagan. Even with the slow start to the season, the steady summer heat had our vineyard team harvesting a week earlier than average. Their hard work paid off; aromatic whites are crisp and fresh with a lively palate, while our reds are rich and fruit-forward.
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.
