This blend of grapes is sourced from Oliver and Osoyoos vineyards. Loaded with sweet cherry-berry flavours. Full-bodied and supple. This is a red wine blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Shiraz grapes with a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. Finishes with cherry, red licorice and boysenberry.

Reviews and Ratings

Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The grapes for this delicious red blend come from the desert vineyards around Oliver and Osoyoos in British Columbia’s most southern region. This is a big and bold red blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Shiraz with the small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. It is bursting with juicy ripe black cherries and plums with a touch of smoke and spice, followed by a long, smooth finish. Fantastic with olive and lemon tapenade, grilled steak or herb-crusted rack of lamb.

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Big and fruity with lots of soft dark plum and black cherry. The taste is mouth-filling, repeating the fruits in the aroma and showing a little spiciness as well.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
