“Long, ripe tannins give the wine a polished texture… built to age like a fine Bordeaux.”

 92 Points – John Schreiner


 "A beautifully complex aroma. An expressive style. A very complete wine."

APPELLATION
Okanagan Valley

SUB-APPELLATION
Golden Mile Bench

VINEYARD SOURCE
An estate grown blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (42%), Merlot (33%), Cabernet Franc (19%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (1%) from Arise Bench.

WINEMAKING
Matured for 16 months in a combination of new (33%), 1-year-old (37%), and 2-year-old (30%) French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTE
Cassis, sweet tobacco and wild sage aromatics greet your nose with notes of rose petals and Bing cherry. This complex bouquet hints at the intricacies of the palate with fresh juniper, black plum, and dark chocolate. The well-integrated tannin structure provides depth to this richly layered wine. The finish is both long and mouthwatering, balancing sweet fruits and oak spice.

FOOD PAIRING
Slow-braised short ribs with charred pepper cream gnocchi.
