Fruit for this vintage is harvested from our Boothe Road Vineyard, a site with an amphitheatre shape and southern aspect overlooking the village of Naramata. This full-bodied blend shows warm dark fruit aromas of plum, cassis, and blueberry laced with chocolate, vanillin, and spice. Tannins coat the mouth in a dusty, cocoa like texture forming the background for the complex spice, chocolate, and red fruit flavors. A long toasty finish complete the seduction of the senses.
