Natalie's Score: 92/100Rich, dark, layered and full-bodied with fleshy black plums and berries that you can almost squeeze with your tongue to the roof of your mouth. Yet this is a dry and balanced wine wrapped in mocha and toasty oak. Balanced with a long finish. One of BC's and Canada's best wine producers.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: cocoa and black pepper rubbed beef tenderloin or leg of lamb..

Rich colors, fragrant aromas of violet and elegant layers of plum, cassis and coco integrate with fine ripe tannins. Overlaying notes of licorice and toasty vanilla bean make the first sip irresistible. There is a savory edge giving complexity to the powerful finish. This wine is drinking well young and will continue to improve. This flavorsome wine pairs perfectly with coco and black pepper rubbed beef tenderloin or leg of roast lamb.
The grapes were harvested late in October from our estate vineyards on the slopes of Boucherie Mountain surrounding Quails’ Gate Winery. Handpicked and fermented with indigenous yeasts for 28 days, this wine shows good extraction of velvety tannins. Barrel aged for 18 months in French and American oak this wine will reward careful cellaring of up to 5 years.
