Product notes

Growing Bordeaux varietals in the Okanagan Valley is challenging with a short growing season. The grapes that do hang on the vine to nearly harvest’s end may be a bit smaller, but they reward us with intense flavours.

Tasting notes

Wine with a dark ruby color. Powerful nose that opens with aromas of spices, ripe black fruits and wood. There are also aromas of vanilla and pink pepper. Enjoy this dry red with refreshing acidity and coated tannins. It reveals a wide mouth that extends into a fairly long finale.
