WineDiva's Review

Tasted bottle No.2005
This hefty bottle is filled with old vine (planted in 1968) Cabernet Franc (54%) and Merlot (32%), along with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. It was released to celebrate the winery's 50th anniversary this year (2018).
2015 was a hot vintage in the Okanagan Valley and it shows in this ripe wine. Chocolate covered cherries, vanilla, espresso, pipe tobacco and cassis aromas cycle into a palate that is rich, spicy and supple. Modern with strong oak influences it culminates with bold clove and sarsaparilla flavours.
