Our Red Wines

The 2017 vintage was a warm generous vintage much like 2014. We thought it would be nice to release something that is drinking well today even though it will provide plenty of rewards with time in the cellar. This is about 60% Cab Franc and 40% Old Vines Syrah and is one of Ross's favorite wines. It spent almost 3 years in a combination of older barrique and puncheon barrels before being bottled this March and is drinking very well now. Dark matte ruby. Warmed spices, cooked herbs and sweet dark tree fruit on the nose and palate. Full bodied, with rich resolved tannins and enough acidity to keep it lively. Think roast lamb or savoury BBQ dishes. We think a very age worthy vintage (time will tell) we think this will be wonderful over the next 10+ years. Please decant. Drink Now - 2028+

Medium matte ruby in colour. Savoury, spicy aromatics of thyme, pine forest, strawberry and earth. This is medium bodied but quite firm in the mouth with the ability to handle more substantial foods and proteins. Hold if you can for a few years or decant before serving.

Vineyard: We have 6 rows of Pinot Noir planted in 1990 right next to the winery to clone 115. 

Wine Making: We fermented this wine with stems included, hence "Whole Cluster". This is an old school technique used extensively in Burgundy and increasingly in Oregon which imparts more structure and tension in the wine. This is much more savoury and taught than our other Pinot's and will improve greatly with a few more years in bottle. If you drink soon please decant generously.

Vibrant ruby in colour. High toned aromatics of lilacs and fennel fronds with a touch of white pepper. Medium bodied and focused palate of ripe red berry fruits, sweet herbs and pepper. This is a fine, detailed version of our young vines that is easy to drink but has intense, crunchy persistence on the palate. Easy to drink now but we see this rewarding at 5 to 8 years in the cellar. Drink Now - 2030

Vineyard: Planted in 20O7 on granite bedrock and glacial till in the southern quadrant of the property. 100% Naramata Village.

Wine Making: Hand-picked on October 15th 2019. De-stemmed. Gentle pigeage during fermentation. Basket pressed. Malolactic occurred in neutral French barrique. Bottled unfined and unfiltered in March 2021.
