Vineyard – Blind Creek
Region – Cawston Bench, Similkameen Valley
Thoughts – We’ve always said ‘If you’re going to go big, Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley is the place to go, especially if proper ripeness, structure and depth in a wine are of interest to you. We’re full of catchy sayings like that.
Taste – This vintage is a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 40 % Merlot. We initially planned on having a good portion of Petit Verdot included in the blend, but the grapes got too ripe and we decided not to use them. Nevertheless this is one big bird that is sure to impress even the most discriminating predators.
