Natalie's Score: 91/100

A robust, BC red wine blend of 35% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Malbec grapes. The wine was aged for 22 months in French oak barrels. This is the winery's flagship wine and made from only 42 barrels. Needs cellar time to come together. Firm tannic grip. Aromas of wild cassis and black currants and toasty oak. Decant 2 hours and pair with rare steak.

Food pairings: Beef Stroganoff with Cremini & Porcini Mushrooms to be the perfect pairing. The wine's Tannin's is slightly mellowed by the meat that simply melts in your mouth, along with complementing flavors of mushrooms in a rich sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous Okanagan blend. Loved the aromatics, heavenly red berry and blackberry, fragrant violet floral petals, densely concentrated plums, anise and black sage. Integrating well. Balanced and has potential to age well until 2030. Pairs well with bbq filet mignon. Tasted 2013 vintage of winemakers reserve in Nov 2017. Decanted 2h. 93 points. #BespokeTastings

Wonderful aromas and flavors of blueberry, vanilla and plum. Full bodied with soft tannins and a long fruit forward finish. Pair with a rare steak. Tasted November 2017.

Our winemaker’s carefully crafted blend from our finest grapes is his
commitment to achieve the highest level of wine excellence attainable.
Aromas of red berries, cherry with a hint of vanilla and cocoa. On the
palate, this full-bodied red o ers so tannins with a smooth finish.
