Updated Spring 2021:
Savour notes of dark fruit and molasses in this full-bodied wine with intense dark colour. It is very well aged, with a soft palate and good backbone acidity.
Tasting notes at the time of release:
Features aromas of black currant, cherry and spices. Well-structured with elegant tannins and a long, lingering finish. Pairs well with BBQ steak, roast beef and aged cheeses.
This is a blend of Lillooet grapes and fruit from the Sundial Vineyard on Black Sage Road. 91 points: John Schreiner (2013): "The wine is 47% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc. It was aged 12 months in French and American oak barrels and another six months in bottle before release. Dark in colour, it begins with an appealing aroma of black cherry, black currant and vanilla. On the palate, the wine’s long ripe tannins give it a generous richness. The flavours echo the aroma with added touches of chocolate and spice."
