Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful, full bodied, well balanced, fruit forward, dense concentration. Blackberry, plum, ripe raspberries. Pairs well with tangy bourbon basted baby back ribs. Tasted 2014 vintage in August 2018. 91 points
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Perfect for all your summer BBQ'S. Aromas of ripe dark plum, blueberry and peppery spice. Full bodied, nice bright acidity, and ripe fruit on the palate. Spicy, peppery notes come through on the finish. Enjoy with all your summer grilling, from veggies, to ribs, to steak.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From Similkameen Valley, B.C. This pretty medium garnet coloured Zinfandel has such an invigorating aromatic floral bouquet. Featuring - pomegranates, raspberries, sour cherries, red licorice, anise, fennel, graphite and a touch of toasted vanilla beans. Flavours are lively, reflecting the same cherry and pomegranate elements. Red plums, toasted oak and chewy lingering tannins give an awesome mouthfeel that’s dry, grippy yet juicy and mouthwatering. Medium plus body and fruit forward finish. Went perfectly with smoked bacon wrapped filet mignon. 90 points - tasted August 2018
