The complexity of tastes in this port-like wine are apparent with the first sip. Fraser Valley walnuts, picked green and long-soaked in an Okanagan gamay brandy begin the taste experience. Cigar box, medicine chest, shoe leather—there’s a warm and slightly-spicy cherry roundness to this rich mélange of organics, all carried in a Bordeaux-type blend of Okanagan merlot, cabernet franc and marachel foch harvests that linger long on the palate.
