Natalie's Score: 88/100

Smoky mocha aromas on this nose of this full-bodied BC red wine from oak aging along with fleshy ripe black fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this wine are grown in the winery's Blue Terrace Vineyard. Pair with a juicy steak.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: robust dishes such as beef Wellington, herbed rack of lamb, or game such as a roasted wild boar with a cherry glaze. Fabulous with strong cheeses like Danish Blue, Gouda or a aged cheddar..

Reviews and Ratings

This single vineyard wine is sourced from a grower we have had the pleasure of working with for over a decade, Andy Marsel. The deep gravel soil of his north Black Sage Bench property is in many respects similar to Bordeaux’s Left Bank. A stellar growing season in 2012 produced a rich, dark wine with a harmonious palate of Bing cherry, Santa Rosa plum and licorice. Aromatic notes of cherry pie and mint with hints of tobacco. Plentiful soft leather tannin structure delivers a sophisticated wine with a supple palate for a distinctive Okanagan expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
