Natalie's Score: 93/100

A superb BC red wine made from the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grape grown on the Black Sage Bench planted in 1996 at 315-330 metres above sea level. The vineyard is just 7 acres and only 13 barrels were produced of this wine. Aromas of dark fruit, smoke, earth, graphite and spice. Decant 1-2 hours and enjoy with a rare steak.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Gorgeous Okanagan red. A special wine for a special occasion. Rich and bold, well structured, well balanced, big acidity, fine silky medium plus tannins, blueberry, dark chocolate notes. Full bodied and ready to enjoy. Pair with your favourite dish and special others. Tasted the 2016 vintage in April 2019 with decant. 94 points #specialoccasionwine

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.
