Note: In 2021 we experienced wildfires in the Okanagan which has resulted in smoke being present in some of our wines and so we have made the decision to offer a 25% discount on select products from this vintage. We are still tasting and selling these wines in our wine shop and found that many customers are still enjoying them. We do recommend opening and consuming these wines right away rather than cellaring them. 

Harvested from Anarchist Mountain Vineyard in Osoyoos, BC from merlot vines planted in 1994. We produced only 120 cases.

Aged in 53% new French oak and 47% seasoned oak for 11 months. The merlot was then blended with 2% cabernet franc and returned to barrel for a further 9 months of aging. It was bottled unfined, and unfiltered in late Spring of 2023.

There is a complexity on the nose which displays aromas of dark plums, sour cherries, black tea, and cedar along with spices reminiscent of Autumn, such as cloves, cinnamon, and star anise. The palate reveals ripe red cherries and bramble berries enveloped by grippy, but powdery cocoa tannins counterbalanced by a gushing rush of acidity.

Enjoy this wine now or over the next 3-5 years.
