A blend of 95 percent syrah and 5 percent malbec, this was sourced from Poplar Grove's Haynes Creek Vineyard in Osoyoos. The fruit is surprisingly evolved for the 2016 vintage, showing restrained dried black fruits with lots of wood. Unfortunately this is masking some of the varietal character. In short, a soft, easy red wine to drink now.
