Winemaker Notes
The blend features grapes from our Estate vineyard in Lillooet (40%) and from Sundial Vineyard in Oliver. A blend of 72% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months. The final blending was done in the fall of 2013. We were fortunate to be able to select among a large number of different lots in our cellar, with different grape varieties, vineyard lots and barrel types. Our goal was to highlight the layers of complexity while finding harmony in the aromas. After bottling on November 25th 2013, it was aged another 9 months prior to release.
Other Notes
Wine is approaching its peak, but can be cellared until 2020-2022
