Natalie's Score: 93/100

Destined to become a cult classic. This wine offers enticing aromas of cassis, black plum, blackberries and coffeed oak. A monumental structure gives shape and definition to these plush layers of dark fruit. An otherwise ordinary weeknight becomes a celebration when you uncork this big red. Beautifully structured with a finish that’s as long as the yacht you’re planning to buy. Get yourself on the winery’s bottle allocation list now.

Meritage food pairings: herb-rubbed duck, beef tenderloin with red pepper-goat cheese sauce, filet mignon, prime rib, lamb shank.

On the nose, this wine displays outstanding complexity with loads of black fruits and cassis, accentuated by aromas of mint, vanilla, cedar and tobacco. On the palate, there is tremendous richness and length from the abundant, silky tannins, supported by opulent primary black fruits and a slight mintiness. A classic Bordeaux-style wine from a classic Okanagan Vintage
