Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This popular full-bodied red blend has ripe aromas of black cherry, dark berries, spice and caramel. On the palate, big ripe tannins feature along with flavours of plum, black forest cake, cassis and a hint of mint.
Vineyard Notes
Liquidity’s Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc plantings from 2009 and Merlot from 2005 have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 2.6 short tons per acre. The 2015 season got off to a record early start, due to higher than average Growing Degree Days as well as lower than average precipitation levels. This continued through the growing season, eventually leading to a final GDD for the season of 1650. The average GDD for Okanagan Falls is 1405. In 2015 we grew more confident in the weather patterns and allowed the vines to produce more fruit, to allow them to be more balanced, and to ripen naturally later in the cooler part of late August and early September. 
Winemaker Notes
Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from beautiful south facing slopes at Lusitano and Allendale properties respectively are the focus of this blend. The balance of Merlot comes from Blind Creek vineyards in the Similkameen. Each variety was destemmed, crushed and fermented separately. Mostly small lot fermentations with vigorous cap management and delestage throughout, each had approximately 15-18 days of skin contact before pressing off into mostly French oak barrels (24% new). The wine was barrel aged for 15 months, during which it was racked two times and blended for bottling in March 2017.
Food Pairing Notes
This bold wine is the perfect cool weather companion. Pair it with grilled steak, roast leg of lamb, aged or blue cheeses or a hearty winter vegetable stew.
