Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This complex Syrah delivers ripe and strong characters of Okanagan. Red plum, black and white pepper, olives and smoky bacon with spicy flavours, silky tannins and a long finish.
The grapes were handpicked at Colin and Mike Stevens' vineyard in Osoyoos on 12.10.2015 at 26 brix. The fermentation was natural and took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine aged in a variety of Slovakian, French and American barrels for 14 months. This natural Syrah delivers ripe and strong characteristics of Okanagan. Black and white pepper, olives and leather with spicy flavours and a long finish.
