A complex, deeply flavoured BC red wine blend of 70% Merlot and 30 Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for the 2016 vintage. This reserve wine is the winery's signature, flagship wine and was featured in John Schreiner's book Icon: The Best Wines from BC's Flagship Wineries. Aromas of black fruit, toasty oak and smoke.The wine was bottled unfiltered after aging 21 months in oak barrels. Pair with grilled meats.

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.
