Let's put to rest all those questions about whether BC wines can age. This '06 was still big and beautiful.

Another great example of BC Cab Franc. Grown on the Black Sage Bench (literally right beside ours!). Ripe blackberry, cassis, cocoa, vanilla bean, spice. Still has several years left on it.

This is a delightful and fascinating wine with good age potential. Seek out stateside. Remarkably jammy black cherry from Okanagan BC fruit aside classic, bracing cool climate acidity. Moderate+ alcohol and moderate/- tannin.

I really enjoyed this merlot! Very full bodied, flavourful. Blackberries, vanilla, cherries, great smell and easy to drink. Definitely buy again.

I have rated this wine before and loved it. Let’s just say that this wine is a prime example of how far the Okanagan wines have come and the reason why I consider it a world class contender. Cheers 🍷🇨🇦
