This rich, full-bodied Okanagan red is a tribute to the art of the blend. The 2016 edition features twelve labels, each with a different photograph by local artist, Lionel Trudel. The photos were taken at our estate vineyards and shot in the iconic “Chiaroscuro” style, literally meaning light-dark.
Exceptional wines from historic vineyards.
2016 had a long, gradual growing season with an exceptionally warm spring resulting in the earliest budbreak on record. However, moderate temperatures into the summer allowed us to retain acidity while achieving optimal ripeness.
The 2016 RED is a blend of our sustainably farmed estate vineyards on the Black Sage Bench, including Phantom Creek Vineyard and Becker Vineyard. Each lot is made with the same exacting standards as our single vineyard wines to best showcase this unique South Okanagan sub-region.
