Tasting Notes:

Bold, dark and smooth with notes of blackberry, soft leather, ripe raspberry and black pepper. Subtle oak character gives a whisper of vanilla and spice. Firm, gripping tannins and bright acidity buttress the concentrated fruit flavours, providing excellent structure for long-term cellaring. Decant and enjoy tonight or cellar 5-7 years!

Vineyard Notes:

Organic Syrah grapes were hand harvested from Spadefoot Toad Vineyard in Oliver, BC. These vines are lovingly managed by master organic grower Ron Firman, who tends his small acreage like a garden to create this intensely concentrated wine. Ron carefully applies compost to each individual vine and breeds endangered spadefoot toads in his irrigation channels for natural pest control.

Winemaker Notes:

100% Organic Syrah. Syrah clones #7, #99 and #100 were fermented separately in small lots with daily hand cap management. Each portion rested for forty-seven months in neutral oak barrels before blending and bottling.

Food Pairing Notes:

A classic match for grilled lamb chops or spare ribs.
