A blend of Grenache from Penticton (46%) with 28% Syrah and 26% Mourvèdre, each from a different site on West Osoyoos Bench. Open top fermented, punched down over 20 days then gently pressed before seven months on lees in French oak (20/80 new/neutral), unfined and unfiltered. Up front red and black fruit with a wild edge and earthy notes before a complex layered palate with mulberry and plum, herbal undertones and some grip around a core of firm tannins. Gentle decanting recommended.
