A blend of mainly Merlot (76%) with Cab. Sauv. (16%) and Ceb. Franc. (8%), 56% estate grown with the balance from sites in Similkameen and Oliver. Allow time to open in the glass for aromas of red and black fruit precede a well balanced palate of damson, red current and cassis notes with approachable well integrated tannins, vanilla and peppery notes through a lengthy end.
