This is another Okanogon wine we tasted while at Big White ski resort. This is a traditional Bordeaux blend. Dark in color, deep rich red berries on the nose. On the, mid pallet there are deep rich red berries to match the nose. On the finish the wine has some firm tannins and some nice pepper and spice. A nicely complicated wine with lots going on in the mouth. I would give it an 89-90.

TASTING NOTE: This is the new name for what the winery used to call Six Vines – because it includes all six Bordeaux varietals. The blend is Cabernet Sauvignon (29%), Malbec (23%), Carmenère (23%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (1%). Production was 1,325 cases. It is a bold red, beginning with aromas of blueberries and cassis and with generous fruity flavours. The finish has a hint of spice and pepper, probably the contribution of the Carmenère. Score: 92 (John Schreiner, johnschreiner.blogspot.ca, April 26, 2011.
