Susan Desjardins reviewed this wine as follows:

A classic Bordeaux-style blend, dominantly powerful Okanagan Merlot, aged 20 months in French oak, this brooding inky assemblage offers intense aromas of smoked meat and dark fruit, with delicate hints of vanilla, herbs and cedar. Robust, firmly structured, the wine displays long-lasting flavours of ripe red and black berry garnished with dark chocolate-coated expresso bean wrapped around chewy, lip-smacking tannins. This is a wine of great substance, to be enjoyed decanted with rare red meats or cellared 5-7 years.
