Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a blockbuster estate Carmenère from South Okanagan, Osoyoos wine country. The winery is about as far south as you can go in BC without entering the United States -- and a great place to grow this heat-loving grape. This deep red wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered and is full-bodied and mouth-filling with flavours of ripe dark cherries, plum, dried thyme, fried bacon and a smooth and long savoury spice finish. Tannins are fine. So good with a garlic roast pork.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fantastic ripe plum and blackberry, slightly green, spicy and savoury. Paired well with charcuterie. Tasted 2015 vintage in May 2019. 90 points
