    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    Elegant aromas of black currant, boysenberry and black cherry lead to a pleasing full-bodied and rich palate. The complex fruity flavours carry through to the palate with subtle hints of violet and vanilla on a long, soft finish.
    Vineyard Notes
    Liquidity’s Cabernet Sauvignon planting from 2009 at the Lucy vineyard and Merlot from 2005 on the Allendale vineyard have been cane pruned and then shoot and fruit thinned to produce 2.5 short tons per acre. The balance of Merlot came from Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen, while Cabernet Franc was sourced from the Golden Mile Bench in Oliver.
    Winemaker Notes
    Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from beautiful south-facing slopes at Lusitano and Allendale properties respectively are the focus of this blend. The Cabernet Franc was sourced from the Golden Mile Bench in Oliver. Each variety was destemmed, crushed and fermented separately. Mostly small lot fermentations with vigorous cap management and delestage throughout, each had approximately 25 days of skin contact before pressing off into mostly French oak barrels (38% new). The wine was barrel aged for 15 months, during which it was racked two times and blended for bottling in March 2019.
    Food Pairing Notes
    This red blend is the perfect cool weather companion. Pair it with grilled steaks, venison, roast lamb with garlic & rosemary, duck fat-roasted potatoes or a caramelized onion tart.
