Updated Spring 2021:
Enjoy toasty oak notes, roasted nuts in this medium-bodied Meritage. There are less prominent fruit characteristics, but hints of blueberry and cassis. This wine is soft but still has some tannin.
Tasting notes at the time of release:
This Meritage is blend of grapes from our estate vineyard in Lillooet and Sundial Vineyard in the Okanagan. Our 2013 Meritage is made from 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc.

This Meritage contains a beautiful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. Each varietal was fermented separately in small batches and then aged in French and American oak barrels for nine months. After the cellaring period, the wine was assessed. We then selected the best batches for the blend. Our 2013 Meritage was bottled and aged for an additional eleven months prior to release.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Meritage pairs well with the best cuts of beef: tenderloin, prime rib or rib-Eye with potato wedges. Or drink with barbequed venison and polenta.
Wine is approaching its peak, but can be cellared until 2020-2022
