Juicy and concentrated with incredible depth and a satisfying bite on the finish. Aromas of fleshy blackberry and dark plum with spice. Complex and layered. Pair with a rare filet mignon.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful! A shining star from the arid desert of Southern Osoyoos BC. This beautiful Bordeaux blend offers complexity, solid structure, layers of densely concentrated flavours and supple textures. Integrated medium plus alcohol. Declared 14.8% ABV. The glass calls for a thick cut, medium-rare AAA rib steak and another glass. With each sip alerting the senses to a tide of aromatics, this is a pleasure to experience. A real gem. Drjnking well now and will be exceptional over 2017-2025. Tasty ripe tannins, ripe blackberry, raspberry, savoury black sage and a Hint of peppercorn. Long finish with persistence of ripe blackberry. This vintage was A pleasure to taste and I look forward to the next vintage. Tasted March 2017. 93 points.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Incredible! Rich and complex layers of plum, cassis, tobacco leaf, anise, smoke, and graphite minerality notes. Tannins are developed and sensual against a well-balanced acidity, integrated alcohol, and a long spice finish. Still developing and considered a cellar worthy Bordeaux blend. Enjoy with a medium-rare prime rib. Tasted Mar 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A big and complex beauty - blackberry, black currant, leather, smoke, spice. Great structure with the alcohol, tannins and acidity. Best with a juicy steak or hold for another couple years. Tasted June 2017 ACWC.
|Perseus, Invictus (2013) shows just what 42% Cabernet Franc can do as a top contender in a blend of 38% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Malbec wine grapes. "Invictus", which means 'unconquerable' in Latin and the medium-bodied, rich red berry fruit and cherry fruit red wine is wrapped up in dark chocolate with fine, soft tannins. This beautiful and big red is the flagship wine from Perseus Winery. - Community Wine Reviews|
