Description

A full bodied red with grippy tannins, bright acidity and notes of blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, chocolate, and minerality. This wine is drinking great now but will age for 5+ years. Cellaring and decanting is recommended.

100% Merlot aged 30 months in French and American Oak barriques. Unfined and unfiltered.

Pair with grass-fed beef, truffle risotto, hard cheeses or dark chocolate.

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

 

Geographical Indication: VQA Kelowna, BC

Vineyard: Various Okanagan Valley vineyards

Cases Produced: 1,200

 

Appearance: Deep, solid ruby colour.

Nose: Cedary, gently spicy, blueberry and black plum bouquet.

Palate: Medium-bodied, richly extracted blueberry flavour with well-integrated oak offering hints of vanilla. Lovely velvety mouth-feel with ripe cocoa-powder tannins. 

Quality: Outstanding. Decanting recommended. Hold a year to resolve the tannins and drink through 2024.
