2016 Compendium

2016 Compendium

A Compendium is a compilation of concise items on a subject, in our case, the combination of soil, climate, clone selection, and hand-harvesting of grape clusters to create this unique wine. The fruit was selected from specifically designated blocks within our estate vineyards. The fruit was selected from specifically designated blocks within our vineyard estates in Osoyoos (90%) and Oliver (10%) where the porous soil forces the vines to search for nutrients. This struggle results in elegant and luscious fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
On the nose, notes of ripe red cherries and fresh cassis bound from the glass with subtle expressions of fresh blackberry and leaf to support. The palate shows a great depth of intense ripe dark fruit with hints of dried herbs. The wine is structurally complete with fine and explicit tannins that support the powerful body resulting in a long, persistent finish.
