    Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

    Geographical Indication: BC VQA British Columbia
    Vineyard: Border Vineyard, Southwest Osoyoos
    Residual Sugar: 1.9 g/L
    Cases Produced: 260

    Appearance: Dense purple in colour.
    Nose: Smoky, crushed pepper and blackberry bouquet.
    Palate: Full-bodied, dry, richly extracted flavours of black fruits with well-integrated oak and mellow tannins.
    Quality: 91 – 93 points. Outstanding. Drinking well now, but will reward holding for a couple of years.

    Food Pairing: Slow-roasted lamb with garlic and rosemary, BBQ bacon burger with gouda and fresh-cut fries, charcuterie board, bruschetta with black olives, and beef brisket served with coleslaw.
