|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A classic Bordelais blend incorporating Merlot, Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. Careful clone selection and low yields of 2/3 tons per acre (typical is 4-6).
Pretty colouration - deep garnet colouration.
Aromas of fig, leather, blackberry jam, prune, cherry, roasted red pepper, cocoa, and cigar smoke.
The palate is pretty complex. Returning red and black fruit. Lots of chocolate and smoke too. Velvety mouthfeel. Lipstaining, when you indulge in a few glasses.
Pleasurable now, but it is probably best in a few year - 5-7 years at least. Braised lamb would be a fantastic with this, if you can't hold off.
|This predominantly Merlot-based Bordeaux style blend is bursting with black cherry, eucalyptus, and lavender aromas. A robust wine, this vintage shows lingonberries, cherries, cedar box and cocoa on the palate. Perfectly framed with firm tannins, the extended barrel aging in a combination of French and American barriques for 24 months developed spiciness and vanilla characters.|
This 2013 vintage was primarily crafted from the Blue Terrace Vineyard in north Oliver where we chose both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon because the rich, gravel-strewn soils provide a solid foundation for superior grape quality. We also sourced Merlot from the Remuda vineyard in Okanagan Falls, which has a warm micro climate that gives us well structured tannins. In addition, small amounts of Cabernet Franc from the Rock Pocket vineyard, and Malbec and Petit Verdot from the Naramata Bench add complexity and character to this full-bodied wine.
