"This is a brilliant Meritage style blend with concentration and restraint rarely seen in wines anywhere in the world. A worthy candidate for the best red I have ever tasted in British Columbia." David Lancelot, Marquis Wine Cellars
"Alain Sutre started to build this blend on a base of Petit Verdot. The final blend is 33% Cabernet Franc, 20% Petit Verdot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 15% Malbec. This is a radical blend among Okanagan Meritage wines, most of which are built on Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. However, thinking out of the box produced a delicious wine. It begins with spectacularly lifted aromas of black currants, plums, blackberry, vanilla, mocha. All of these elements follow through to the taste. The long, ripe tannins contribute to the wines elegance and power and ageability" 92-94 pts, John Schreiner
If you or your company are planning any corporate gift programs this year this is the ultimate prize.
