Inky dark in color with a nice hearty dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lots of lovely dark berries along with some mocha and oaky/earthy notes. On the medium length finish the wine deliver some lovely firm (although not overwhelming) tannins and some nice acidity. This is a perfect steak wine. For the price it’s a very good deal. This is another in the family of these from Okanagan that are being brought into the LCBO. I would give it an 88 or so.
