FLAVOUR PROFILE
Deep purple colour with a lovely bouquet of dark plum, blueberry jam, black cherry, violet, smoky oak, black pepper and molasses.
This full-bodied wine has soft yet drying tannins, great structure, and plenty of juicy, dark fruit flavours, accented by notes of oak and spice.
Wonderful warming notes of dark chocolate, black tea, Chai spice, black cherry and black currant linger on the finish.
Serve with spiced London broils; braised meats; richly herbed and spiced lamb dishes; herbes de Provence scented roasted potatoes; steak with peppercorn sauce; bean and lentil stews; spiced veggie lentil burger; aged Beemster Gouda.


GROWING CONDITIONS
The spring began with a blast of heat and a quick start to the season. Summer and fall cooled slightly allowing a slow, long ripening season, ideal for red varietals, and for expressive aromatic whites. The valley saw slightly wetter than normal conditions; however, the vineyards remained healthy. The southern Okanagan Valley experienced 1635 GDD (Growing Degree Days), representing higher than average heat units.
