Natalie's Score: 93/100
A classic, robust BC Cabernet with aromas of wild cassis, tart blackberry, graphite and smoke. Needs cellar time, then decant 2 hours: firm tannic grip. Beautiful structure, long finish. Perfect for a rare steak.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled New York strip loin, hard cheese, braised pork shanks, veal chops..

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This winery makes the shortlist for Canadian cult status. Snappy, well made wines across their category and their quality hasn't diminished as their popularity grew. Their based around opposite sides of the Keremeos mountain and near Osoyoos Lake.
Deep, dark, ruby red with purple inflections.
The aromas have a lot to offer. Plum, tobacco, blackberry, black olive, charcoal, and fresh herbs.
Smokey oak, more plum, black fruit, and a twang of fresh cranberry on the finish.
Great wine from a vintage BC winemakers seem to be very happy with. Pretty high on the alcohol. Possibly higher than 14.5%.
Good pairings might be Carpaccio, potato skins, strong cheeses, etc...
