Julian scored this wine: 90/100
Grapes were sourced from the Naramata Bench. After fermentation in a stainless steel tank, the wine was barreled down into a combination of new and seasoned French oak for an 18-month before bottling.
A toasty nose of plum, blueberry and blackberry. On the palate, it is a medium body with flavours of blueberry, blackberry, toasted oak, tobacco, leather and a hint of cinnamon. The finish is long, mouth-filling and warm with a fine fruit character and ripe tannins. Suggest you decant/aerate before serving. This needs time, as in five-to-seven years, to settle in and show its true merit. <
