This is 'the pinnacle of everything we do at the estate,' says head winemaker Jeff Hundertmark, and, in my opinion, stands among the top big reds made in B.C. It's a blend of 52% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc, 17% Syrah with a couple of drops of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon that's aged in 100% French oak (35% new) for 24 months. The fruit is sourced from premium blocks in the estate's vineyard in the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. It has a thrilling and generous nose of black cherries, black currants, blueberries, raspberry bush, cigar box cedar and elegant spices and mocha notes. It's rich and powerful on the palate with a firm bed of ripe tannins to go with cassis, blackberries and blueberries with compoted red berries, smoky cedar, earth and rich spice notes in behind. It all benefits from a lifted and super long finish. This has the stuffing to cellar 10 years and beyond. A beauty. Score - 93. (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, May 28, 2021)
