A stunning wine of great complexity! Reminds me of the best of Bordeaux and Rioja, but with a purely Okanagan signature. Aromas of tanned leather, earth and dark fruit. Full-bodied, smooth and layered with a finish that doesn't end. Pair with lamb.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful! Aromas of tart cherry and ripe strawberry, along with notes of warm earth and spices. Medium+ bodied, with vibrant acidity and some drying, grippy tannins. Fruit on the palate is bright and fresh, and there is a note of dried herbs, leather and a hint of smoke on the finish. Lovely, with wonderful balance. Enjoy with a roasted rack of lamb or a robust mushroom dish.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
