2017 vintage. Certified organic Pinot Noir grapes from Garnet Valley which is the highest plantings in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
A nose of bright cherry, carrot tops and celery salt.
Ripe cherries and herbaceous qualities envelope your palette. Earthy and a bit smokey with crisp acidity on the finish.
This wine was built for grilled Pacific salmon or duck pizza.
In 2017 , Shane Taylor won British Columbia Sommelier of the Year. Every year’s winner is given the opportunity to make a wine with Okanagan Crush Pad Winery.
This is Shane’s legacy and a very nice wine.

2013 vintage. At Dilettante in Beaune. Medium ruby hue. Funky nose - meaty and dark fruit in character, leather tan and earth. On the palate, bright fruit and silky, with a lifted note. Tannins are fairly tame, and the acidity is sufficient to make the wine seem fairly fresh. Medium plus body and alcohol, and decent finish. Really not a style of wine that appeals to me despite its obvious eclectic nature. Would leave for another 3-5 years before drinking. — 5 years ago
