Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very interesting and somewhat complex Pinotage coming out of Canada's Okanogan Valley. Fruit forward with definite cherry and raspberry notes. Flavours again of red fruit, with a hint of chocolate and smoke. The fruit and some lovely peppery spiciness takes you through to the warm finish. Quite enjoyable!
2016 Best of BC Varietal Awards - Silver

The View Winery boasts spectacular views of Kelowna and Okanagan Lake. Sandy loam soils combined with long hot summer days and cool evening breezes from the lake are perfect conditions for The View’s signature fresh, fruity, aromatic wines. Originally built by Great Granddad Ward in 1922, the building in which we craft and cellar our wines was once the original Ward’s Apple Packinghouse and is the last from its era in the Okanagan. For five generations our family has supported a commitment to tradition, authenticity and excellence. Our alluring wines point to the future and celebrate the past.

Elegant and earthy with a hint of smokiness. Vibrant aromas and juicy flavours of dark cherry and raspberry are beautifully balanced with a spicy finish and pleasing tannins.
