    October 3, 2018 - Greaat example of Okanagan Merlot, blended with some Cab. Soft tannins, well balanced, cherry on the nose, full mouth, long finish. Drinking wonderfully right now.

    January 28, 2018 - Very nice! All the best traits of Okanagan Merlot, plus the additional structure provided by the Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon. Pleasant fruit on the nose (but not a "fruit bomb"), plummy like I expect OK Merlot to be. Some earthiness, and maybe leather? Big, round mouthful of wine, smooth, mature tannin. Long, pleasing finish. Went beautifully with our beef roast. Ready now, so drink up!
