Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Love this 100% Merlot from B.C.'s Okanagan Valley! Crafted from hand-picked grapes that give optimal fruit expression. Yummy notes of ripe blackberries, blueberry pie and slight sweet spice make this a true delight with roast pork and fall vegetables. Satiny smooth and good to the last drop! You can enjoy this wine now or cellar for up to 5 years.
Tasted Sept. 2019
Largely neutral oak to provide a transparent look into the nature of the grape in that season. Combination of Merlot clones 347 and 181 from our estate vineyard.

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.
