A luscious, full-bodied BC red wine blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc grapes grown in Osoyoos and aged in American oak barrels for two years. Aromas of fleshy ripe black plum, dark berries and smoke. Supple and smooth. Pair with prime rib.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a blend of 58 % Merlot and 42% Cabernet Franc. Aged in American Oak for 2 years. Will keep well, in a thick heavy bottle. An engaging bouquet showing red plums, pepper spices, granite, cigar box, smoked meat brisket and roasted bell peppers. Flavours are smoky and full, cherry compote, red currants, dried bay leaves and sue are leather with a hint of earthy funky forest. Overall very nice. The full flavours will stand up solidly against fuller meats and game. 91 points

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.
