Maud Boulton reviewed this wine as follows:

2007 Vintage Report
Spring and summer conditions saw exemplary Okanagan weather with an excellent start to the season for budburst and flowering. Careful vineyard management with intensive pruning and thinning for smaller crops yielded high quality grape clusters. Harvest began September 6th and lasted through November 1st, for the table wines. The onset of cool fall evenings and warm days produced whites with exceptional crisp freshness and reds with well balanced tannin and sugar maturation.
Our 2007 Shiraz is balanced and rich in texture, with a lively blast of blackberry and dark cherry. The wine is highlighted with white pepper notes and a lingering finish.
Solid, yet somewhat rustic style for the barbecue. This Shiraz will complement grilled meats perfectly. Try pairing with barbequed beef ribs, lamb chops and honey glazed grilled vegetables.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
