This is a Bordeaux blend made by a small BC winery – 200 cases pf this produced. It is a blend of cab sauv., cab franc, merlot and 5% Malbec and petit verdot., aged for 21 months in American oak. The wine is dark with a very pleasant spick vanilla nose, the tannins are present and medium weight, it is full bodied and has very good length. In terms of how this ranks with other BC Bordeaux blends, I rank it above Osoyoos Larose (any vintage to date), and on par with the like of Poplar Grove Reserve, Sumac Meritage and Burrowing Owl Meritage. It will be interesting to see how it develops over the next 3 or 4 years as the tannins soften – the fruit certainly seems ample.
