Selected from the famous Black Sage Terrace vineyard in Oliver, BC these grapes underwent extended skin contact, 28 days, to create a single varietal merlot with deceptively powerful structure and rounded juicy tannins. Aged for 25 months in French oak and un-filtered to retain natural complexities. Aromas of blackberries, cherries, cassis, licorice and a hint of tobacco intermingle with underlying earthy and toasty oak notes.

We make the kinds of wine we like: whites that are aromatic, fresh, clean and crisp; reds that are balanced, well-aged, and approachable from the day you take them off the shelf.
The grapes that make up our wines are
locally grown, mostly sourced from our
spectacular lake-view vineyards
in Naramata. We are proud to grow our grapes
sustainably and to be one of the few local wineries
crafting wines from vines that have proven
themselves for almost 30 years.
