We sourced Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and Syrah from some of BC’s best vineyards to make this Bordeaux-style red blend. Each batch was fermented separately and lovingly tended with daily punch downs and 20+ days of skin contact to extract a rich array of soft and big tannins and fruit notes. The nose shows cedar,dried fruit, meaty, black currant and floral notes and the taste is big and round, well balanced and firm, ripe tannins. Age worthy wine that pairs well with rib eye steak or prime rib. BC VQA Certified.

Wine Writer’s Comment:
An avid wine enthusiast, Mark Simpson not only produces his own wines under the labels Siren’s Call, The Escapist, and Hawk’s Vineyard, but he shares his crush pad and expertise with other small-lot wine producers. Simpson’s approach helps to support BC’s garagiste movement of creating wines of high quality at limited productions.
Harmonious is a wine to savour. This rich red blend is well-balanced with a healthy amount of tannin. It’s drinking nicely now, but could also age another 2-4 years.
