Natalie's Score: 91/100

I don't think I've ever given an Old Vines Foch this high a score: this is a benchmark of its breed. Savoury depths of black fruit, meat and smoke. Surely, this is Canada's best Old Vines Foch? Try it when you're in the mood to experiment and open up your pleasure horizons.

This Old Vines Foch was harvested in October 2008 from 26 year old vines in our Osoyoos vineyard. This site provides maximum heat during the growing season and produces very ripe, concentrated fruit, creating a classic Marechal Foch. Fermented to near dryness and aged in American oak barrels, this wine will improve for up to 5 years. Marechal Foch has become a cult classic wine in B.C.

with its rich powerful frame, texture and complex gamey notes. Vibrant color and aromas abound with gentle tannins and pure fruit sweetness.
