Description

Blend
54% Merlot,
28% Cabernet Sauvignon,
and 18% Cabernet Franc

Our two southern Okanagan estate vineyard properties comprise 60 acres at two distinct sites to the north and south of Osoyoos. Haynes Creek, to the south, is a hot and sandy vineyard where in the summer the heat is powerful, and the grapes grown there provide a ripe, rich, pure fruit fullness to the blend. But just 10 minutes north, at Desert Ridge, the days are slightly cooler, the soil stonier, and the resulting fruit more structured with earthy, leafy, and herbal characteristics. The two distinct sites differences are reconciled in this rich blend that captures the boldness of the hot, ripe 2015 vintage.
