This is a blend of Frontenac Noir, Marquette, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. A juicy, mouth-watering BC red wine with aromas of fleshy ripe black plum and blackberries. Train robber Billy Miner is on the front label, a local rascal from the 1890s. Pair with grilled meats.

Food pairings: mushroom dishes, duck, tomato based pastas.

Reviews and Ratings

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This is an interesting blend of new world and old world varietals, that come together to form a full-bodied red with aromas and flavours of ripe, dark fruit, spice and smokey oak. As it says on the label it would go well with anything on the grill, especially if it is a burger or a steak!

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.
