FLAVOUR PROFILE
Garnet colour with a lovely bouquet of blue plum, black currant, smoky oak, leather and black pepper spice. This is a medium to full-bodied wine with soft drying tannins, good structure and moderate acidity. Flavours of juicy red and black fruits with sweet spice fill the mouth. The extra-dry lingering finish shows notes of black tea, cherry and currant.

Enjoy with two-year-old Canadian cheddar and Grana Padano cheese; beef tenderloin in rich red wine reduction or topped with melted blue cheese or rich melted butter; grilled red meats (medium to medium-rare); rosemary lamb chops; pot roast.

GROWING CONDITIONS
The mid and southern Okanagan, and Similkameen Valleys, experienced an early start to the growing season with warm, dry conditions which persisted until August. The month of August and early September experienced smoke covered valleys from local wild fires which slowed the ripening process, allowing for an extended period for ripening and development of flavours. During late September conditions improved providing an excellent harvest period for early ripening varietals. An early October frost caused some issues with late ripening varietals, but overall the 2018 vintage saw a near normal to good growing season.
